Ohoka Charisma

After 22 years and many, many happy memories, it is time for the owners to say goodbye to their magical piece of Ohoka. Often admired and photographed, this iconic Ohoka church has been converted, extended and renovated over time.The church was built in 1865, extended twelve years later and used for services until 1975. Now a substantial two storey 320sqm home including a large studio and double garage.

There are two living areas - one to the north that opens onto the garden and the other, the original church. The church is now a special room with a restful ambience, with high timber ceilings and original wooden floor.

Heated with a wood burner, it is a lovely relaxing living area with a window seat from which to enjoy the garden. One can easily visualise the capacity here for larger gatherings.

The kitchen forms the hub of the home as with most country homes, large and functional with copious storage. The wide opening windows give lovely views onto the limestone chipped paths and clipped hedges framing the outdoor area. The kitchen currently accommodates a large table made from original pews. It is double glazed and has electric ceiling heating.

Off the kitchen is a study area leading though to the studio and double internal access garage with storage space and auto garage door opener.

The home itself has three bedrooms. The main bedroom is downstairs with an ensuite and triple wardrobe. It enjoys views onto the garden and the french doors open directly outside onto a paved terrace under a wisteria clad pergola.

Upstairs are two further double bedrooms plus a landing area separating them. A bathroom downstairs services these bedrooms.

Nestled in 1,821sqm of picturesque grounds, there is year round interest, colour and shelter with views to the mountains through hedge windows. The 9 x 5.7m studio has so many possible uses. Currently it is used as a florists studio, but the possibilities here are endless. The studio includes a separate toilet and handbasin.
