Description

A Creation of Peace and Beauty.


Created over time with a passion and precision rarely seen, this magnificent Victorian-style home is Tauranga's best and beautifully kept secret.

This extraordinary property has come to the market for the very first time. Years in the design and as many in the building, this stunning home is as unique as it is special. Whilst decorative and opulent in its design, the owners wanted to create an authentic home where their family could simply relax, enjoy and soak in the peace and tranquility of the land and location. They wanted a home which would be well loved, well 'lived in' and one where family and guests would come and just 'be' - a place of comfort, space, solace and freedom.

Unrivalled in its charm and quality this home is full of character. The owners designed many of the superb features - the colour, texture and pattern of the stained glass windows, the solid plaster ceilings with decorative cornices (each designed to reflect the atmosphere of the individual room), the timber sourced from a church altar above the fireplace, Victorian wall panelling; patterns, shapes and detail which have been worked together to create a visual effect which is both imaginative and impressive.

The entrance to the property is through stunning Victorian-style electric gates. The long driveway curves between established oak trees to the home and separate four bay garaging. Pull-down steps lead you above the garage to an attic/party area which spans the entire space. The garage links the home via a beautiful covered walkway.

Wide Ironwood verandahs encircle most of the home following the contour of the house and providing a choice of 'outdoor rooms' for relaxing as the sun moves. The cedar weatherboard exterior, double-glazed sash windows, scalloped cedar shingles over the Dorma windows and the American shingle roof have been carefully chosen to ensure quality and longevity.

As you cross the verandah to the double entry doors you know you've arrived somewhere special. As you step into the warm and welcoming entrance hall you'll want to linger a while...to savour the beauty, quality and detail, to savour the 'feel' of the home.

The Burmese ironwood timber flooring throughout the entire ground floor is striking. The Jotul wood burners, copper topped to reflect heat are wonderful when it's cold - The fires crackle and we go pink-cheeked about the house, says the owner.

A large country kitchen and dining room is the heart and hub of the home. The family room with long sunny window seat invites you to curl up with a good book. Wander to the other end of the home and find rooms you'll love to entertain in. Take the staircase or lift to the second floor where beautifully appointed family bedrooms and luxurious master suite (styled from a 50 pence piece) draw you into havens of comfort and restoration.

In Summer there is no better place to be. Fling open the French doors to shady verandahs, barbeque under the finial topped, wisteria covered arbour beside the swimming pool. Enjoy the birdlife from the native bush that protects the boundary of your personal five-acre park.

This extraordinary property is only fifteen minutes drive from Tauranga's city centre. It is real estate gold - unique, uncompromising...perfect.
