This magnificent residence with its impeccable pedigree tells tales of the original William Potter farm. Apparently built around 1915, this villa was relocated here from Ponsonby around 2003 and has undergone numerous quality restorations and extensions since then - the latest in 2019 which, while retaining a few treasured features of the past, has incorporated mega-modern fittings and fixtures resulting in a truly breathtaking transformation. With al floor area of 255m2 (approx), (under roof area 78m2 approx), this unparalleled home resides on 4526m2 (1.1 acres) of flat land and is zoned Mixed Rural.

A driveway with electric gates and intercom leads to the expansive sealed area surrounding the home to arrive at the entry which acknowledges this grande dame's age with covered verandah, gorgeous stained glass front door insets and romantic bay window. Passing a bedroom on either side the foyer leads to the ultra-spacious light-filled open plan lounge with its dominant Schist stone gas fireplace, adjoining dining and the exemplary kitchen complete with caesarstone benchtops, island bench with pendant lights, Schock tapware, built in butlers block, Smeg freestanding stove plus an excellently equipped butler's pantry. This breathtaking area showcases a combination of native timber and polished concrete floors, 3.4m to 5m apex cathedral ceilings with doors opening onto an expansive Kwila timber leisure deck also equipped with a huge Schist fireplace. Zoned underfloor and radiator heating enhances family comfort throughout this classy residence. Three bedrooms include the incredible 90 square metre master suite with built in bar and tv area, heated feature concrete bedhead wall, built in speakers, motorised blinds, expansive fitted his and hers walk-in robes, deluxe dream ensuite with freestanding Apaiser bath and dual vanities. The tiled walk-in shower with its 12 shower heads simply must be seen to be believed. One of the two remaining bedrooms has access to the front porch, the other nostalgically retains the original fireplace mantle and bay window. Both feature built-in wardrobes and share a spacious family bathroom. There's also a separate powder room and a large laundry with super-storage and outdoor access.

Around the garden the use of Schist stone walls and feature lighting is wondrous highlighting low maintenance rock gardens and grasses and a combination of native and exotic trees attracting myriad species of beautiful birdlife. Entertaining and family leisure is stylishly catered for on the scenic decks, while grassy swathes offer play spaces for children and pets. There are two large sheds - one approximately 12m x 29m with concrete floor, power and lighting and doors perfect for housing larger vehicles. This has a mezzanine floor and is partially used as an office with several other multi-functional spaces to utilize at will. There's also a bathroom here. The second is the original 15m x 6.5m hay barn. Exquisitely composed, generously proportioned and boasting the very best inclusions, this irreplaceable residence is idyllically situated in a premium locale quiet country lane amongst other high end homes and offers a fleeting opportunity to buy into this tightly held, rarely available location.
