Country haven for fantastic family life


An attractive property comprehensively set up for a full country life.

So peaceful yet so many options on this 2.4338 hectares. The big roomy home was built by Trevor Pooley, the Bay of Plenty's Lockwood builder, as a show home to demonstrate the many advantages of Lockwood. Hence it is full of beautifully crafted features, especially the extensive built-in cabinetry in almost every room and the solid Rimu kitchen. Raked ceilings tower over massive living spaces, sky lights and lots of glazing keep things bright and there's a large sunny conservatory overlooking the pool. The home sprawls along the ridge taking in views to the coast. There are many features incorporated which will enhance and simplify your life. The half acre (approximately) of grounds includes an inground pool (new filter, new decking) and tennis court complete with umpire's pavilion. The pool, house and paddocks are supplied with water from the bore which fills a 25,000 litre tank above ground and an underground tank which is at least 30,000 litres. Nine sheltered paddocks, ideal for horses or other stock, fan out around the home, and slope into a gentle valley. There is easy access to and through paddocks for stock movement. Those with horses will be delighted to find two loose boxes inside the large board and batten barn which has an extensive mezzanine; and a grass dressage or training arena in the paddock above which drains well and could be converted to an all weather surface. Paths from the grounds take you bird spotting through a beautiful bank of native trees, exotics, rhododendrons and fruit trees. Other established trees dot this former kiwifruit and avocado orchard; several avocados remain. While pretty wonderful as it is you will be able to look forward to the last kilometre or so of the road being sealed in the near future and to the development of an 80 hectare park across the road. Tracks for riding, walking and mountain biking will snake over the hills to the bush line. It's a little further up the road to tramping tracks into the Kaimai Ranges. A country paradise just five minutes from Katikati township.
