Influenced by hacienda architecture, this home has character walls, archways, a paved courtyard, and exposed timber beams - the staples of the Spanish or Mexican hacienda. Set on a flat 1ha site in the rambling countryside, it is suggestive of a home on the prairie. Offering a great family lifestyle, the property has wide open spaces and is self-sufficient when it comes down-time and recreation thanks to an inground swimming pool, a barbecue area, and a tennis court.
The home makes good use of its 199sqm floor area, packing in 4-5 bedrooms, an office, a large country kitchen, dining, and lounge areas. Indoor-outdoor flow makes entertaining and everyday living simple and easy. The full-length deck has options for open air and covered dining and is the perfect spot to enjoy the poolside atmosphere and watch the kids swimming.
The rural outlook enhances the relaxed ambience and privacy is exceptional thanks to neighbouring paddocks. The somewhat quirky interior has personality and could take on a new modern look, if desired. It boasts strategically placed heat pumps and a cosy wood fire for year-round comfort.
An original 1940s build, the home has grown and evolved over the years to become the generous family abode that it is today, with convivial living areas and ample personal space. Garaging and a rear attached workshop sit next to the home. Offering the quintessential Kiwi lifestyle, this property caters for a family who treasures the outdoors, fresh country air, and land to enjoy. It lies 10 minutes from Taupiri and less than 25 minutes from The Base.
