Description

Idyllic colonial homestead 'Fernielea' - 1.026ha


Ten minutes drive east of Wanganui's Town Bridge, down an attractive Oak and Elm tree lined driveway, you'll discover the enchanting Fernielea sitting pretty on 1.026 hectares. Built in 1867 the Classical Gothic / Colonial style homestead is a rare historic gem, being only the third time ever on the market.

The sunny, ambiance filled home, combines historic charm with modern conveniences, low maintenance established gardens, a grass tennis court, two paddocks for a pony, a basement 'bunker' and an extensive chattel list. A three car garage with separate games-room /studio / mezzanine and toilet complete the picture.

The district offers excellent Primary and Secondary schooling, with school buses to the front gate. Very central to Wanganui and Palmerston North airports and a local pub, garage and general store for your convenience in nearby Fordell village. On a fine day there are views to Mt Taranaki. Tongariro National Park and Turoa skifields are approximately an hour and a half drive away.

Excellent internet for a busy family life or a hospitality and events business.

This is a rare opportunity for the discerning buyer to have their very own slice of New Zealand history which is bursting with character and provides a magical glimpse into a bygone era. Fernielea combines delightful and spacious living, with exciting future options.

Viewings are by private appointment. Call Knud on 027 222 6161 for your appointment time.
