Description

Moutere good life is here


If you yearn for a country-style life yet close to amenities and with enough land to indulge your dreams, this lovely property in Upper Moutere is calling your name.

With half an acre (2,147sqm) of beautiful gardens and flat lawns - plenty of space without it being a burden - and a warm, north-facing family home basking in sunshine it's a rare offering.

Gaze out at hop fields across the paddock from your front deck and listen to the birdlife in this much-loved property.

Say goodbye to suburbia and return to old-fashioned country living and values, see the children enjoying space to roam, trees to climb and creeks to explore.

And yet Mapua is a five-minute drive, the Upper Moutere store, pub and community centre is just up the road and around you are vineyards, farms and artisan producers. You are on the bus route for primary and secondary schools. The good life awaits in an active community.

The second owners of this spacious (180sqm) 1960s home have raised their family here and it's time to downsize, leaving an opportunity for new owners to enjoy this delightful home. Lovely original timber features and French doors remain in a home which is already very comfortable, but which you could readily expand.

Solidly built for the original hop farming owner's retirement, it has been modernised, including recessed lighting, new wiring, full under-floor and ceiling insulation, a roof ventilation system and renewed kitchen. The deck was added, new wool carpeting laid, and a new heat pump installed.

The gardens, lavished with care, are outstanding. Flat lawns for ball games are interspersed with low hedging and lovely shrubs and trees including fruit specimens galore, a huge vege garden to provide near self-sufficiency and a chook house. There's so much scope here to re-design to your requirements.

Water supply is via a legal easement from a neighbouring bore which has never run dry. The house has a septic tank. The house cladding is a mix of brick and thick stucco and the roof is corrugated iron.
