Serenely scenic setting

An interesting and appealing 1.7560 ha which packs a lot to enjoy and to benefit from, including the privilege of living in such a beautiful setting.

The attractive home sits sunnily in easy care country grounds where lawns slope gently and weeping willows cast shade. This authentic 1996 Lockwood style is named 'Bayview', very apt when every window frames views of the Bay of Plenty, over the property's stand of bush to the city, Mauao and ocean for spotting cruise ships; also, a peep of the upper harbour from the lofty master suite which occupies the entire upper floor. The near views into the garden and over the property bring equal pleasure, especially while relaxing on the rose festooned veranda.

The immaculate four-bedroom home with a spacious kitchen and two linked living areas has the added advantage of incorporating a charming well-appointed, self-contained one-bedroom apartment ideal for a parent and perfect as tourist accommodation. It is divided from the main home by the double garage which makes it very private.

As well as its own bushy gully with walking tracks and spring, the land spans several paddocks, a good set of yards with loading bay and a flat plateau currently sporting one paddock and a vineyard of 250 vines, eight rows of pinot gris, one of pinot noir. The big room at one end of the 12x7 shed (with two vehicle bays) has been the winery, producing up to 500 bottles, but could have multiple uses, be it workshop or packhouse for another horticultural crop, with all the necessary irrigation in place from one of the property's two water supplies.

High hedges shelter this rectangular block with a northerly aspect and divide the home grounds from the utility shed area behind which are the vines, orchard and a paddock. This property has been tended with care by owners who have loved the peace and the views to the city and coast not far away, the local school five kms down the road.
