Description

A double bay villa in a country setting


Double bay villas are few and far between, especially in Tauranga. Prepare to fall in love with a gracious lady whose health has been carefully tended to ensure she enjoys many more happy years. The Villa, circa 1905, was moved at the turn of this century from her original home in Remuera to this perfect setting among the mature trees of a sunny 4887m2 lawned hilltop alive with birdsong, and with views of the Mount, harbour and sea beyond. While appreciating city proximity you will revel in the genuine country atmosphere where wind rustles through the poplars and you can rustle up a fruit salad from the home orchard.

You will fall in love with the delightful original features - high studs (3.5m), working double hung sash windows, French doors, panelled walls, fireplaces with decorative hearths, fretwork, native timber floors; although it will be the creature comforts that ensure your love endures through the seasons. This spacious 331m2 four bedroom plus office villa is always warm, with working fireplaces in the lounge and dining room and a furnace in the garage delivering central heating to period cast iron radiators throughout the house; plus, a DVS system.

The kitchen was moved to a light bright sunny sympathetic extension that includes a generous scullery. The modern gas cook top and contemporary oven share the kitchen space with an Esse wood burning stove. French doors from the country kitchen and lounge open to a decked verandah along the north side where glass balustrades enhance the view through a green canopy filled with native birds, protecting the heatable saltwater pool below. The dining room faces a circular patio made of bricks from the original chimneys, which extend along a grapevine covered path to the back gate beside the internal access double garage. A truly special property that will create memories for your family for years to come.
