Riverside renovator's dream opportunity


Offered to the market for the first time in over 36 years, this much-loved riverside property has played host to a lifetime of happy family memories. The owner's adult children paint an idyllic picture of garden parties on the expansive back lawn and paddling in boats on the river. Now that family has grown and it's time for new owners to breathe life into this gracious and elegant home and reinvigorate it for the twenty first century; or capitalise on the over 1135sqm (more or less) site.

As you arrive at the elegant entrance and sweep up the driveway to the front door of this iconic and substantial home, you will fall in love. Framed by established gardens, discover a peaceful oasis with the ever-changing Waikato River as your backdrop; a short stroll to the St Andrews Golf Course, river paths on your doorstep, plus in-zone for great schools, this potential-packed property will charm you instantly.

Step inside and discover tall windows welcoming in plenty of light, multiple sets of French doors and high ceilings plus sparkling chandeliers. The owner's elegant tastes are reflected in a soft palette of creams and pale blues throughout. Offering four large bedrooms split over the two levels, as well as formal and informal living, separate dining plus a sunroom; the sensible layout is very liveable and offers options for renovation and further connection to the gardens and river so the green surroundings can be further enjoyed. There's a large double garage plus an additional workshop room which could be ideal as a "work from home space".

The large land size is a huge bonus, especially in such a central location. In addition to the expansive site, you have the added benefit of mature trees giving a private and scenic setting, with spectacular birdsong as a backdrop.

Seldom seen and impossible to replicate, this home stands as a testament to the craftsmen who built it. A perfect marriage of built-to-last brick and a spacious setting; here's a rare chance to grab riverside living in a premium location.
