This 100yr old 310m2 "grand old dame" sits majestically on 4.05ha of parklike lawns and gardens bounded by beautiful mature trees with the rest set into 8 post and rail paddocks plus an Olympic sized arena.
The drive meanders through a leafy bower up to this lovely transitional villa that has space galore with all the features of this era; 3m high stud ceilings with ornamentation, chandeliers and high skirting boards, all with the original wooden joinery.
You will love the impressive entrance foyer and 3m wide central spine hallway that gives access to the formal lounge, master bedroom with expansive picture windows and ensuite, 2 large double bedrooms,1 with window seat, the golden era style bathroom, separate toilet and kitchen/dining area at the far end.
This area houses a modern kitchen with pantry and leads to the deck outside and the second informal lounge/family room. Perfect for entertaining, the two lounges adjoin one another via bifolding doors, or simply close to gaze into the exquisite original fireplace or out of the picture windows.
Flowing down the heartwood rimu stairs there awaits a lower level of further accommodation - a lounge/rumpus room that has French Doors opening onto the covered patio area to the beautiful lawned and leafy vista. Leading off either side are 2 oversized bedrooms each with fitted wardrobes.
Back upstairs, the dining area opens into a large tiled wet room with storage cupboard. Finally, leading off this is both the study and back entrance way. Step out under a time honoured "breezeway" to reach the huge triple garage/man cave.
Now the equestrian dream a 60 x20m arena with adjoining pens plus a horse stall sits nearby. There are tie up and wash down facilities. Two dams surrounded by beautiful willows complete the picture with the water supply for paddocks pumped from two large house tanks. Other features abound but cannot describe them all here ring Liz to view and take that first step to live your dream!
