Be romanced by the charm of yesteryear


There's surely nothing as idyllic as the charm of a country villa which has been cherished and loved, ensuring its character and delightful old-soul are well and truly intact. Spread over 4850m2 (more or less) of quality land, this well considered homestead offers quintessential country living.

A warm and immaculate presentation instantly invites you via an ornate porch, to step indoors and enjoy the atmosphere. Set at 3.6 metre high stud ceilings and amongst delightful timber paneling and imported wallpaper features. The interior showcases period style in all its glory, whilst offering the best in modern comfort. The layout encourages formal and informal living options, including a generous open lounge, a country-style kitchen and a dedicated dining room with working coal range.

The kitchen is entirely revitalized, it offers excellent storage and benchspace, a luxurious 900mm oven and butler sink. Featuring timber paneling on the walls, and a solid timber benchtop, the country character of this homestead is not lost here. Flowing easily to the dedicated dining room and then spilling through double doors to the bright and sunny north facing deck.

Accommodation is accounted for by three exceptionally generous double bedrooms all with storage. The extra high stud-height further enhances the feeling of light and space throughout. The master retreat is elegant and sizeable, it enjoys picturesque countryside views and includes a particularly romantic open fire place facade, while the remainder of the home is heated (and then some) via two heatpumps, ducted heating and a functioning woodburner in the living room.

Since moving it to Ngahingapouri in 2011, the home has undergone major work. It has been rewired, replumbed, reroofed, and fitted with ceiling and underfloor insulation. It was also stripped back to its bare bones and repainted indoors and out.

This easy care lifestyle block encourages sustainable living with an abundance of fruit trees. One paddock leaves room for the family pet, while double garaging with workshop and additional wood shed. A large concrete driveway and turning bay take care of the practicalities. The grounds themselves are tidy, but low maintenance with ribbons of green lawn perfect for kids to enjoy summertime antics.

A true lifestyle sanctuary and the perfect tapestry for many family memories to be made. You'd never know that you were a quick 15 minutes to Hamilton, 15 minutes to Te Awamutu or five minutes to the vibrant Ngahinapouri village. Great schooling is on your doorstep with the decile 10 Ngahinapouri School (year 1 to 8) only minutes away and a myriad of high school options.

279 Old School Road is a stunning example of a genuinely rare lifestyle opportunity. Set in a vibrant community and so conveniently located, an excellent opportunity exists to call this place home before Christmas.
