About this listing
Set amongst a plethora of beautiful established trees not far from town is this private and unique country family home. With views across to the estuary, the ocean and as far as the Mahia Peninsula surrounded by the sounds of tui's in the stunning flowering gum trees you would be right to think that you have found your very own piece of paradise.

Built in the 1950s this country home has a great feeling of history about it. Enhancing what was already there, an extensive and sympathetic re-model took place in 1991 by architect Stephanie Smith. Its rustic exterior blends in well with its surroundings with its macrocarpa durable and low maintenance cladding and tanalised timber wraparound deck. You can sit out here and enjoy the sunrise surrounded by birdsong and the fluttering of monarch butterflies - sublime! Subtle architectural features throughout will surprise and impress you. There is the 'swing' front door, open archways and curved walls, lounge window seat, beautiful timber flooring and country-style kitchen - and then the "piece de la resistance" in the Master bedroom with a spectacular curved ceiling and stained-glass window feature - stunning!

Space is in abundance here! There are three spacious double bedrooms each with their own unique outlook with a fourth single bedroom. In addition to the open plan lounge/dining/kitchen area there is also a reading room and study area too. On a lower level there is also a bonus one bedroom self- contained flat with its own bathroom and kitchen - perfect for extended family, teenagers or visitors.

On the organic 1.26 Hectare section there is so much to explore! A freestanding studio is perfect for relaxing, yoga, or perhaps another hobby such as painting, drawing or just another quiet contemplative space. In one direction the chooks are free range, happy and living the good life. In another direction you can meander down the long driveway and stop off to pick limes, lemons, grapefruit or a mandarin from the citrus groves or gather the fruit from one of the many fruit trees in the established orchard.

The land is dog fenced all around and includes a terraced section while the sloping paddock across the road is suitable for grazing.

Only 8 minutes away is the popular Park Island recreation ground and dog park and in less than 10 minutes you could be sipping coffee in your favourite café on Taradale High Street.

Properties that have so much to offer like this one, do not come along often, so make sure you see this before its sold!
