Villa amid avocados and grazing


Lovers of heritage homes will appreciate this one's sensitive upgrading. If production is important, even better that it fronts an avocado orchard, overlooks grazing. The land is an L-shaped 3.4395 with approximately two hectares of grazing rising to a gentle plateau where 95 avocados were planted ten years ago. As is customary for most avocado orchards this one's production peaks every second year. The flush on the trees promises the next crop will continue its excellent track record. The grazing spans five paddocks which can support stock or horses. The lush pasture has yielded two cuts of hay a year. There's a small set of cattle yards and a loading bay in the front paddock which the drive passes to reach the home grounds where a high stud three bay shed stands in good proximity to the orchard and house. The 100 year old home was moved in four pieces from Gisborne 12 years ago and carefully reconstructed, retaining beautiful original features and replacing with authentic replicas where necessary, or where desirable to extend and remodel areas like the open plan living fronted by a wide veranda. The result is a light airy north facing insulated home which combines turn of the century atmosphere with 21st century comfort, space and convenience. Rimu and kauri abounds in panelled walls, ceilings and floors, appears in stair railings and door frames. The kitchen is a meld of original and new, a Rangemaster stove under a traditional hood, the colonial features repeated in the base of the hub, a granite topped central island. Living - open plan linked to dining with doors to the lounge - runs along the north and east side, open to new veranda which also wraps the west side.

It's a generous home with wide foyer, a bedroom and bathroom on the ground floor; stairs you'll love ascending to an equally spacious landing and three more bedrooms. The lofty master suite also exudes 'then and now'; soak in a claw foot bath or luxuriate in a tiled double shower. Appreciate the income advantages of this property while enjoying peaceful privacy on a property which could hardly be more central. It's on the outskirts of Paengaroa village, headquarters of Comvita. You are not far from Maketu beach, fifteen minutes to Papamoa via the Eastern Link toll road, 35 to Tauranga and equidistant between Whakatane and Rotorua each an easy 45-minute drive. This is an area experiencing huge growth in horticulture and associated industries so offering plenty of employment opportunities.
