Nestled behind a gated entrance and along a picturesque tree-lined driveway sits this traditional character villa on 19ha (46.9 acres) surrounded by established trees and gardens. A decorated wraparound veranda, impressive high stud decorative ceilings, wooden floors, abundant sash windows, classical chandeliers, pendant lighting, and decorative architraves all add to its romantic charm.
A wide central passageway leads from the front door to the rear where a leadlight door provides a visual point of interest. A front drawing room featuring a faceted bay window and a Jet Master fireplace could be utilised as a second lounge or as an extra bedroom. The timeless kitchen boasts an exposed brick feature over the gas cooktop constructed from bricks conserved from the home's original fireplace. Windows above a butler's sink overlook the fully fenced pool complete with a pergola. The sumptuous dining and living room showcase a concrete floor to ceiling woodburning Jet Master fireplace with doors opening to a covered outdoor dining area adjoining the veranda.
There are three elegantly appointed bedrooms including the master suite which comprises a walk-in wardrobe, an ensuite and its own access to the veranda. An expansive period style bathroom keeps with the traditional design aesthetic throughout. A study provides a quiet place to work and a huge laundry room features dual sinks, and access to the outdoors.
The gentle rolling land is fenced into 11 paddocks with spring fed water supply. There are five ponds on the property which are all fenced. Appealing native covenanted wetlands adds to the character of the land along with a small stand of 100 year old Totara trees, a stable block with two yards, a deer shed, an additional two bay shed and loading ramp and yards.
Located in Glenbrook, with Patumahoe village and Pukekohe townships close by, with a school bus route to both Pukekohe and ACG Strathallan School. Offering space, abundant charm and endearing elegance.
