Panoramic, Pasture View.
This completely secluded, tranquil rural sanctuary is so close to Auckland, Tauranga and Hamilton yet a world away.
With a patchwork of paddocks, rolling meadows, flat pasture and extensive areas of natural bush, this property has been lovingly built up and fastidiously maintained.
The land itself is incredibly private. Once you enter the property you are surrounded on three sides by reserve yet have 390 acres of bush and pasture to call your own. There is an abundance of crystal clear water from the Te Hue stream and there is nothing but bush between you and the ridge. The Te Hue Stream meanders through the property and is home to a number of deep swimming holes with grassy banks, ideal for camping. This is a dream playground for growing kids.
It is currently a combination of a working dry-stock finishing farm and an equestrian family playground. The pasture is self-seeding with sustainable traditional rye grasses and herbs. The current owners have built a wide reputation for their traditionally farmed Red Devon beef.
The main race runs through the valley where the good soil and post and rail fences allow for easy pasture management. Perfectly set up for horses the equestrian facilities are ideal for the enthusiast with three large stables with rubber floors, tack room, hay barn and a 60m by 40m equestrian sand arena.
And then there is the house……
Cleverly integrated into the landscape and with a deliberately understated exterior you could be forgiven for thinking this was an ordinary Kiwi farmhouse. Appearances are deceptive. This home is the epitome of understated opulence.
Once inside, this architect-designed homestead feels more like a manor house. There is the obligatory large family kitchen and dining area with the best of appliances and fixtures. With 8’ polished cedar doors the huge lounge, reminiscent of a banquet hall in a castle, has soaring cathedral ceilings and huge Italian-style Inglenook fireplace. The vast scale of this home becomes apparent.
When you can take your eyes off the architecture and look over your shoulder your are drawn across the river, through the paddocks and all the way up the valley to the bush-clad ridge miles in the distance. This could all be yours.
The upper level is home to two full suites with the now anticipated quality of finish, large dressing rooms, beautifully appointed bathrooms and of course decks with views looking up the valley.
For extended family and friends the current owners have converted one of the barns into a three-bedroom cottage in similar style and finish to the house. This barn could double as farm-stay accommodation or as a caretakers’ residence for the arms’ length owner. The options are limited only by your imagination.
Features of this property are too many to list here. A full Information memorandum is available on request.
The vendors are keen to move on to the next stage and the property is now reluctantly but realistically offered for sale.
