Description

A beautiful property with depth of character


This property will be sold plus GST (if any).

Explore the options for supplementary income or for the pure enjoyment of life on a varied, attractive and superbly presented property. You can't beat relaxing with an evening drink in the colonial atmosphere of the wide covered verandah enjoying the canopy of thriving avocado trees and watching birds flit over the ponds of the park you call home.

This may be the day you've spend a pleasant few hours on the ride-on mower keeping the property as pristine as when you purchased it; from the grassy paths around four ponds to the sweeping lawns that slope to the water, and the 120 (approximately) well husbanded avocado trees in blocks behind and in front of the home. About one third of this beautifully tended 3.8010 ha is in avocados (mainly mature trees, a few new ones and scope to plant more), their dense flowers predicting a bumper crop next season. Two thirds of the land spans willow fringed ponds, cherry blossom bordered parkland and the home and grounds on the rise above. More than worthy of its setting, home is a 1930s weatherboard original which has been massively extended and upgraded with every comfort and convenience considered in the layout and high-quality fittings and fixtures. There's superb open plan living where 60 people will gather for Christmas dinner, drifting out to verandah where a spa stands right outside the master suite at one end and a 6-metre lap pool with swim jets at the other. Catering is a joy in a crowd pleaser kitchen with an array of Smeg appliances, acres of marble bench, social central island and an easy relationship with expansive living both indoors and out. Room to spread with a second lounge opening to a kauri towered green garden, plus a massive games room which is also set up to do duty as the carpeted internal access double garage. Plenty of places to sleep with five bedrooms in the home, including a private master suite with miles of wardrobe space and a large luscious bathroom. Of the two other bathrooms in the home, one serves the family wing, the other is handily inside a back door off the spacious laundry. Friends, extended family or guests (maybe paying ones) will relish peaceful self-contained accommodation (approximately 55m2) beside the separate shed and workshop. Despite all this man-made excellence one of the chief joys of this property has been witnessing the happy tuis, quail, pheasants, ducks, geese and swans that have made their home on and around the lily dotted ponds. From a more practical perspective there is the income stream from the avocados and other possibilities in the accommodation and the photogenic beauty of the setting. If you like to be gainfully occupied but it's time to sway balance to life more than work this is the property for you. Katikati township is under five minutes away and you are well placed to get to the harbour at the end of the road, to the beach at Waihi via SH 2. Tauranga is half an hour away and Auckland an easy couple of hours drive.
