Charming country home in “Garden of Eden”
An attractive country property near the coast that offers an idyllic lifestyle combining self-sufficiency with the ability to derive some income from the orchard.
Personality, practicality and plenty to tempt you on this multi-faceted 1.3037 hectares. The bountiful grounds support 47 Satsuma mandarin trees for a seasonal income; and 95 avocado trees of varying ages, the older ones pruned right back to prepare them for more years of yields. The current owners sell their produce at local farmers' markets.
There's a veritable salad of fruit trees and other plant edibles with fresh pickings from your garden all year round. This property has also been the scene of commercial plant propagation evidenced in the 20x20 metre greenhouse, a 9x10 metre shed including an orchid house, and various lean-tos and useful structures.
The immaculately maintained home began life as a 1930s cottage, its heritage features retained in subsequent extensions and upgrades. The spacious modern country kitchen includes a capacious pantry. There are two separate living areas, one linking the master suite, the other with a step-down space where the big window frames sunsets over the Kaimai Ranges.
Beamed pressed timber ceilings and timber joinery of the older home merge seamlessly with the newer improvements. Insulation and a heat transfer system enhance your comfort.
Exceptional outdoor living invites you to choose from the large covered deck off the kitchen or a second deck positioned for afternoon sun. The double garage may be separate but it is two steps from the back deck.
Dual road entry is another advantage to this property, the curved drive making easy access to orchard and house.
Lots of good reasons to succumb to temptation here!
