Handsome Home on twenty hectares


This impressively comprehensive property will bring you fulfilment on many levels. It presents a superb combination of high quality residence with stunning views, prolific food gardens, big versatile barn, 30 acres of grazing and 20 of covenanted bush with multiple streams and waterfalls. All power to you too with 45 solar panels plus hydro-electricity keeping you smugly off the grid.

Approach up a cherry tree lined drive to the plateau where a beautifully executed 383m2 Landmark built home faces due north commanding an everchanging panorama of coast, Coromandel and Kaimai ranges with Tauranga city spread out below. Doors from the soaring foyer access living which spreads across the sunny north side, the central kitchen and casual dining flanked by a day room and formal dining linking the main lounge. The spaces can all merge as one or each be made more intimate by closing cavity sliders. The four-bedroom (plus office) family wing draws heaps of sunshine on the east end of the home. Stairs evoking Gone with the Wind curve up from the foyer to a magnificent master suite beside which is a semi open lounge overlooking the living space. Its shuttered portico has the best view of the farm and beyond.

The solar heated pool is part of easy care grounds landscaped to respect the views. A very appealing aspect of this garden is the way it discreetly focuses on food. Hiding behind hedges you will find raised strawberry beds and vegetable plots. There is a predator proof berry house, a greenhouse already delivering early tomatoes and an orchard with everything from citrus and avocado to a banana palm.

The 12 hectares (30 acres approx.) of efficiently laid out well fenced grazing comprises 13 gently contoured paddocks. The lush pasture which has successfully fattened Herefords would be equally good for other stock and especially horses. It would be simple to incorporate stables in the 400m2 three bay barn with mezzanine accommodation. The barn is sited below the home and offers choices galore for hobbies, vehicle storage, workshop space. The barn roof is ideally sited for the solar panels which feed 24 batteries at the back of the home's triple garage.

Own this property and you become guardians of approximately eight hectares (20 acres) of covenanted native bush where Rewarewa and Tawa trees thrive. The bush is intersected by stony streams and waterfalls, one of the more accessible ones providing the hydro power which serves as a back-up for the solar system.

Live in a friendly country community close to Tauranga on a pretty special property which offers you lots of options for growing, grazing and enjoying.
