Original stonework entrance pillars with "The Grange" first greets visitors to this property, but not until you drive through the mossy wooden gates and forest of trees, to catch a glimpse of this original home do you realize what an absolute gem of a property you have discovered! Once part of a large Glenavy farm this homestead on approx 4 acres has undergone extensive renovations over the last few years including bathroom, laundry, kitchen, roof, gib, insulation, wiring, decking, windows, trim, flooring, garage and sleep out. Lovely features include local Oamaru stone arch and fire surround, windows in keeping with the villa style, a covered deck which adds to the home's living space, multiple living areas to rest and recuperate from your busy week, bedroom with french door that leads to a charming sheltered veranda, master bedroom with walk-in robe and ranch doors that lead to patio, double garage with mechanics pit and attached sleep-out that makes up a third bedroom, all of this on a local rural water scheme. While every home benefits from keeping an original feature of its past, this house has kept its original gingerbread trim that graces the curved roof veranda and entrance door with coloured glass panels. This is your chance to enjoy country life in this delightful rural setting with mountain views and no close neighbours. Come discover the area and find out the history of this heritage home that once hosted weddings in its gardens and even had a tennis court! Located central to both Oamaru, Waimate and Kurow.
