If being a bit self sufficient is something you have considered lately, then look no further. Set well back from the road is this wee slice of paradise. Amongst extensive well established gardens with a mix of mature native and introduced trees where tui, woodpigeon, and fantails hang out sits this appealing home boasting three generous sized bedrooms, an office, two bathrooms and two living areas. The large open plan living and dining area opens on two sides by way of bifold and sliding doors on to extensive decking which wraps around the house allowing you to follow the sun all day long. The separate snug opens onto more decking at the rear of the house and leads to a purpose built covered gazebo perfect for long BBQs into the evening, the menu for which is easily catered from the modern well set out kitchen. The master suite, with ensuite and walk in wardrobe, offers peace and privacy from the rest of the house with doors opening onto yet more decking and gardens. But just wait till you see what is on offer outside. Further to the attached internal access single garage is an enclosed carport. Beyond, another large garage with well-appointed workshop, plus multiple sheds for firewood galore. Further we go to the chicken run where happy girls produce your daily breakfast. The vege garden is really something, fully enclosed to keep the pests out you can feed your family all year round from here and the list of fruit trees will have you bottling and preserving for never ending produce. A magical gully with stream runs around two sides of the boundary, with paths, bridges and a seat along the way. While you feel like you are miles from the rat race in your own slice of peaceful paradise, the location of this haven could not be better. Just a short distance from both Hillcrest and the bustling village of Matangi with its shop, garage, cafe and more. Zoned for Matangi Primary, Berkley Middle and both Hillcrest High and Cambridge High, this just couldn't get much better.
