Urban homesteading at Ohope!

Crafted around 1910, this gracefully renovated villa on a 1082sqm tropical, food-forested site offers a blend of historic character and contemporary comforts. Over the past two decades, the current owner created a zen oasis where you revive your spirits and leave the stresses of daily life behind. Step onto the spacious veranda, the perfect place to reflect or read a book. The wide entry foyer showcases charming period features including native timber floors and high ceilings. The grandiose open plan kitchen, dining and living area will take your breath away with abundant natural light streaming through charming windows, both bifold doors and windows including skylights. Spend the afternoon preserving your homegrown produce in the timeless kitchen with feature stainless steel benchtop, then store delicious goods in your scullery. Gather with your favourite people over home cooked meals and a good glass of wine. Spill out onto the deck to soak up the afternoon sun, then star gaze in the spa surrounded by tropical gardens.
Three spacious bedrooms, one with private deck, the second one leads into a sunroom, ideal for teenagers and the third one with contemporary ensuite. The current owner is operating her business out of a separate studio which could realize multiple uses such as a clinic or home office.
At the rear of the property is an edible, tropical food heritage, large, grafted avocado, banana, custard apple, feijoa, gooseberries, grape, fig, galangal, lemon, lime, loquat, plum, Louisa plum and satsuma, persimmon, orange, passionfruit, pawpaw, guava and tamarillo. It also houses a couple of chickens and has room to add to your self-sufficiency endeavours. Additional features include bore water for the garden and new solar system.
Our most loved beach is only a short stroll down the road where you will enjoy leisurely activities - beachcombing, surfing and swimming.
The ยผ acre dream combined with this charming villa is a unique proposition, especially at Ohope. Secure it now.
