Deconsecrated - Still heavenly


Originally built in Mangawhare from beautiful native timbers, around 1880, barged to Dargaville in the early 1900s, now settled in Waipu. Make it yours and you can settle here too.

This gorgeous building has had an extensive makeover, with a Code of Compliance recently issued as evidence of all the hard work completed. The work includes remodeling, designed by Kerry Francis, and rebuilding by an award winning local builder. This included reroofing, rewiring, and plumbing, insulation (underfloor, ceiling and walls) and preservation of the original stained glass sash windows, the solid kauri floorboards, and double front doors.

The ground floor has a kitchen fitted with a Falcon double oven and gas stove and comprises the main dining and living area opening onto a roomy rimu deck where you can entertain with BBQ or pizza oven. The current owners will miss the generous spaces that make this, an entertainer's delight.

To maintain the integrity of the home recycled kauri timber has been used to form the stairs which lead to the mezzanine floor. Four bedrooms, including a master with ensuite, and family bathrooms on both levels. A pull-down ladder gives access to the attic - a space which could be further developed to suit you. Bedroom, office, study, or teen lounge there's potential here. A large garage with internal access` was added in 2003 and built to suit the style of the original building.

The property is close to the town centre, making this an ideal location for a home business. The soaring ceilings and high walls would work wonderfully for art gallery or maybe health and wellbeing or beauty endeavour. The house and grounds are restful, private and beautifully planted with natives which attract the bird life.

Waipu has all the charm of small-town New Zealand with a strong Scottish influence and a vibrant community. On the outer reach of Auckland commuting is becoming popular when necessary. Pictures can only give you a hint of how special this home is. Call me today to set up a time to view.
