Description

Full of history & grace


"Oakdale" homestead was built in (circa) 1900 by Charles Straka (the son of one of Puhoi's Bohemian founding families) and is set on a 150-hectare grazing farm in 5 titles.

Entirely renovated and tastefully restored in 2000, classic period features are on display throughout this warm and inviting Kauri home. Notably, elevated 13-foot board and batten ceilings, large sash windows, leadlight panels, and original Kauri timber floors throughout. A separate lounge and formal dining area, three spacious bedrooms and two well-appointed bathrooms (including a master en-suite) with freestanding claw foot baths and a Waterford Stanley stove (with wetback), all contribute to the timeless appeal of this enchanting home. Yet more room for work, sleep or play is provided by a generous converted loft area, a cute sleep-out, and separate office. Outside, the immaculate, hydrangea-fringed gardens are admired from the sun-soaked verandah.

The farm is well subdivided into 13 large paddocks and is well supported by a reliable all year water supply, a good set of cattle & sheep yards and the original two-stand woolshed, which once housed the first shearing machine in the district!

For those looking for more adventure and the chance to walk amongst nature's giants, there's a flying fox that soars through some of the biggest Kauri you'll ever experience.

Spectacular views, are offered from a variety of potential house sites; over the Hauraki Gulf, Auckland city and beyond. Further opportunities abound with the possibility of developing a further eight titles, and for honey production from the large established manuka and native bush plantations.

The property's prime location is undeniable; secluded, yet only a short walk or drive from the historic Puhoi village community, its legendary watering hole and within 35 minutes of central Auckland.

Held and cherished by the same family for over 120 years, the vendors now wish to downsize providing a new family a once in a generation opportunity - don't delay,
