Description

Private 3-acre park paradise


Peace, views and privacy. Here's balm for the soul, a rural sanctuary of just the right size with long, serene views over vineyards and hop gardens, to rolling hills and mountains.

Finding a place in the country with enough space to do everything you've really wanted but without the burden of too much land is difficult. But here is that dream property; three beautiful Upper Moutere acres (1.2ha).

A sunny 143sqm three-bedroom home with verandas all-around plus a modern, high-gabled artist's studio sit atop a ridge. Around the house are flat, tree-studded lawns and two fenced paddocks. The birdlife is dazzling.

This Old House Rd property is a rarity, a wonderful small pocket of private land amid traditional hop, grape and berry-growing family properties and home to a community of artists and artisan producers.

The separate 25sqm studio with its high gable and windows on three sides looks out to distant paddocks; an inspiring workplace for its artist owner - but, perhaps, a sleepout for a new owner.

Just minutes from the Upper Moutere store and pub, No 78 is hidden from sight from the road. From the moment you turn in through the gate and crunch up the tree-lined drive, the serenity envelops you and then, in all directions, are the glorious, elevated vistas.

The fenced paddocks offer so many choices for use. Double garaging includes workshop space.

The morning birdsong is a joy and through the day there are tui swooping over the lawn, bellbird singing and wood pigeon visits.

The property was ahead of its day with its greywater recycling system for gardens. There's rainwater and your own bore water for the house, mains pressure and a septic tank.

Sun streams in through large windows framing views from all rooms, with summer shade from the verandas. Spacious, open-plan living opens to patios and includes a country-size kitchen, heat pump, log burner, HRV air circulation and security system.

The master suite with its bathroom and dressing room has its own French door access to a garden patio.
