Due to circumstances and requirements our vendors are offering this splendid one-of-a-kind five acre property for immediate sale. Originally named the Tuhimata Homestead and boasting an excellent pedigree, this stately home has been modernized and extended over the years with the addition of a magnificent glass atrium. Impressive from the moment of entry via gates, a sweeping tree-lined driveway leads to the high-set residence which overlooks manicured lawns, gazebos and the in-ground pool. A full sized tennis court adds to the gold star leisure facilities. Architecturally praiseworthy, the exterior is breathtakingly beautiful and equally matched by the stylish interior. An impressive entry foyer turns, past a study or home office, into an open plan, premium quality kitchen with stone benchtops, generous cabinetry, breakfast bar which flow into elegant sunlit dining spilling out to the huge north-east facing wrap-around deck. Set to one side, the carpeted lounge room is graceful and inviting with built-in fireplace and window walls accessing the serene outdoors.

Across a short hall, a spacious recreation room - previously used as a spa room, banishes stress with a large built-in spa bath (not working), relaxation area and adjoining bathroom. Leisure related also, a remarkable glassed atrium with soaring glass ceiling with exposed beams is fitted out with a built-in barbeque for casual year round dining in these very special surrounds. Adjacent to this is an office, walk-in storage and a huge 11m x 7m games room complete with bathroom, laundry and kitchenette. Also on this level, three spacious, scenic bedrooms share a convenient study or rumpus room and a family bathroom with both bath and shower. The adjoining laundry is excellently equipped. The upper level accommodates the epitome of lavish family retreats occupying the entire floor with a huge master bedroom, second bedroom or nursery, large storage areas, walk-in robe and sleek bathroom with double basin vanity and a massive lounge accessing a picturesque balcony.

Outdoors, copious shedding stores all manner of extras and there's a second security gated entrance to a one bedroom cottage plus a humble three bedroom home complete with sun room, carport and its own double lock-up garage - perfect for guest or extended family accommodation. Striking in every aspect and certainly one of the Franklin District's finest.
