Just 10 minutes drive from Taipa Beach with lovely views across Peria Valley is this charming 3 bedroom countryside cottage surrounded by just over 1.5 acres (6150 sqm) of lush subtropical gardens. The property is wonderfully peaceful and private, located on a quiet back road, tucked up a long drive & surrounded by mature trees, while still being very close to the action and amenities of Doubtless Bay.
The home features spacious open plan living with semi-partitioned kitchen and dining areas, & multiple sets of French doors opening to decks and lovely garden views. The decor is vibrant and varied, balanced by polished wooden floors and the calm green of the gardens. The kitchen includes a gas hob and electric oven, plenty of built in wooden storage, and access to a side deck. The adjacent dining area has a wood burner with a wetback and French doors that step out onto a covered deck and paved area with fire pit. The lounge feels cosy and spacious, with high ceilings, a feature timber wall, and a bay window style nook. French doors off one side lead out to a covered garden deck. The master bedroom is large and very sunny and has access to a north facing deck. The other two bedrooms are also light and airy, with one also having deck access. Bathrooms are divided between one room with a shower & toilet & a second room with an impressive claw foot bath. There is a separate large rumpus room with lovely valley views that is accessed via stairs that lead off a rear laundry.
The gardens are something to be admired with loads of productive fruit trees and flowering plants. A large rear lawn accommodates a grand old Pohutukawa tree and a garden swing, while a nursery area in the front of the house provides plant propagation space. A large garage / workshop near the entrance to the property provides ample storage and work space. This property has a great deal to offer in a very desirable countryside location.
