This character 4 bedroom, 2 bathroom riverside home with just over 40 hectares of regenerating native bush and meadows offers unparalleled peace and privacy just 20 minutes drive from Mangonui and Doubtless Bay. The property is tucked away down a quiet side road and the home is set back from the road on the far side of a stunning stony bottom river. Included are a series of open meadows, an amazing swimming hole, and a host of useful farm buildings with lots of home business potential.
The home has been thoughtfully designed and finished with craftsman style wooden features and attention to detail throughout. The L shaped layout offers open plan living at the centre, a separate master bedroom suite, and numerous options for accessing a wraparound sunny front deck. Entry into the home is via a lobby, through a library nook, and into a gorgeous wood finished kitchen with walk in pantry. The kitchen, dining and lounge areas flow into each other and open to the front deck through multiple doors. Bedrooms are separated with the master bedroom and main bathroom in one wing, two bedrooms off the dining kitchen area and a fourth bedroom on the eastern side of the home off the lounge area. The master wing includes french doors opening onto the north facing deck. Built in shelving, wooden furniture and other features add function and character.
The home looks out on a spring fed lily pond and is surrounded by landscaped gardens and a series of meadows and orchard plantings. The river curves lazily below with a well established drive and solid ford winding down from house to road. A series of industrial style buildings provide ample space for vehicles, storage and projects, and a separate study / workshop in a converted barn has power and water connected.
