Completely at one with its idyllic natural surroundings, this charming home sits atop a 2,260m2 (approx) section characterised by lush foliage consisting of woodland gardens, native trees and a riot of picturesque flower gardens. Bellbirds and Tuis are frequent callers (pun fully intended) and waking up to birdsong gets the day started on the right note (there I go again!) Pathways meander through this Eden-like greenery down to the Waianakarua River.
The home itself peeps out from these sylvan surroundings and comprises three bedrooms, one of which has bunks (currently used as an office), master bedroom with ensuite, generous lounge space complemented by separate dining and galley style kitchen. Warm ambiance in the lounge is assured by a heat pump and a wet-backed log burner in the dining room gives the added benefit of economic hot water and rustic cooking options.
The lounge and 2nd bedroom opens via French doors to extensive decking, partially covered for all-weather entertaining while a separate paved area lets you enjoy the morning Earl Grey in full sunshine.
Built in the 1960s, extended in the 1990's, large single internal access garage, this home has had several renovations but there remains scope to add-value and enhance with your own personal touches.
Close to State Highway 1, 22kms (approx.) to Oamaru with proximity to a 9 hole golf course, hunting grounds, fishing, trekking and penguin spotting, the home possesses the location, fabulous family or holiday home with size and surroundings to also offer a very enticing B&B stop-over as travellers head down to the Lakes.
The time has come for this much loved family home to welcome its new owner to this beautiful slice of paradise.
Be warned if you come out for an inspection, you won't want to leave.
