228 Pickering Road, Tamahere

Land Size: 6257 m2
Dwelling Area: 160 m2

A private landscaped block like no other, this lifestyle property is home to Gumnut Cottage, a studio flat and outbuildings. Steeped in history and transformed for modern living, the cottage straddles two eras. Built in 1905 as a pub in Thames, the building was later floated by barge to Ngatea where it served as a farmhouse from 1915-1996. Virtually unrecognisable in her current incarnation, the home has flowered in its current setting on this tranquil 6257sqm block in Tamahere where she has nestled for 12 years. A lavish renovation budget and three years of solid work have transformed this grand old dame whose personality is fully exploited and sense of comfort is beyond reproach. Extended living provides ample room for a family who can also enjoy a six month old stone-look kitchen and two modern bathrooms, including one with a deluxe spa jet shower, phone, radio and foot massage. This home for all seasons is warm and toasty in winter and delightfully cool in summer, enhanced by wrap-around verandahs and shade trees. There is a high degree of insulation including natural wood fibre under the house, a pellet fire, underfloor bathroom heating and a heat pump. Interiors have been stripped, sealed and dried. The exterior is repainted and decks newly stained. French doors, big sash windows and native timbers pay homage to the past. Light fittings have been replaced and rooms attract restful rural views. Eight years ago a studio-style flat with a disability-friendly bathroom was added to rear of garage. It is highly suited to an elderly parent, older child, boarder, or B&B. The hugely endearing grounds are expertly planted, encompass three paddocks and offer good infrastructure. House gardens are on an irrigation system and water is spring sourced and deliciously pure. This tranquil property, which attracts diverse bird life, is surrounded by a green belt which ensures peace and privacy. Hautapu School is close and there are buses to Cambridge schools. Hillcrest schools are 10km and The Base is an easy 20 minute drive
