Securely set behind electronic gates and accessed via a tree-lined concrete driveway, this private park-like sanctuary embodies a designer rural lifestyle. Delivering a relaxed country feel, the established 9269sqm Tamahere estate is rich in native flora, fruit trees, potager gardens and easy care plantings. There is wide open space for summer cricket, confined areas for pets, and gorgeous outdoor settings for entertaining, including a romantic summer house draped in grapevines.
Nestled in the midst of this peaceful spot is an architect-designed former showhome in mint condition. The spacious plaster over brick residence breathes in the beautiful setting. Two living zones, a conservatory-style dining zone, quality granite kitchen, a built-in office, and four double bedrooms provide the perfect environment for a growing family. Interiors are light-filled, angled for the sun and alfrescos, and have zoned underfloor heating in the tiled areas. All bedrooms are double with double wardrobes. The master suite has a quiet patio escape, walk-in robe and fully tiled bathroom upgraded two years ago. A spa bath, walk-in shower and temperature-controlled gas infinity hot water enhance the fully tiled main bathroom. Storage includes a warm linen cupboard and attic space over the double internal access garage. LED lighting features throughout, heating, hot water and cooking are on gas, and the water supply is largely rain sourced and fully filtered. Two tanks have provided my vendors with ample supply even through the driest summers. A bonus is the large 80sqm three bay shed with three phase power, a full length work-bench and capacity to house a motorhome or large boat. Replanted in recent years for minimal care, the grounds are tastefully landscaped, have served as a wedding party and extensively concreted. A great feeling of serenity pervades the estate, which lies midway between Hamilton and Cambridge and in zone for sought after schools. Commuter routes are extremely handy.
