Peaceful, pleasant and practical - so close to town
Located in a family-friendly neighbourhood just minutes from Kerikeri and Waipapa villages, this comfortable four bedroom home on a good size section of 10995m² tells a story of easy living.
Tucked away down a beautiful, charming driveway, and coming to the market for the first time in 45 years, this well-designed home - with double internal access garaging and adjoining cloakroom with hand basin and toilet - features a combination of concrete block, brick and board and batten cladding, a spacious combined kitchen and family room and a large separate lounge and generous dining area. Additional features include a self-contained laundry, under-floor heating in the master bedroom, ensuite, family room and kitchen, a space off the main bathroom for a sauna or extra storage, and a large study/office that provides an easy, work from home option.
Beyond the sunlit living areas - lined with wood panelling milled onsite and kept warm by the open fire and heat pumps in the cooler months - is an expansive north-facing verandah, with plenty of room to entertain and relax. From here, you can step down onto the large lawn and enjoy a game of cricket, kick a ball around or just take in the beautiful views.
Providing the perfect opportunity to revamp and revitalise, all four bedrooms open onto wrap around decking, providing easy access to outdoor living and the wide range of both specimen and fruit trees that have been cleverly planted for the subtropical climate and the very good soil. And the huge 12m x 7m barn is ready and waiting for the boat, campervan or man cave!
Handy to quality local schools, sports hubs and both Waipapa and Kerikeri villages - this is a great location on so many levels, and is ready to create lasting memories for its new owners.
