Cocooned in a prestigious no-exit neighbourhood on the outskirts of Hamilton, this country retreat is an outstanding lifestyle package. The property includes a spacious five bedroom home and an outdoor leisure environment set on a 1.48ha private block with exceptional features. The family home enjoys maximum connectivity with the outdoors, entertainment courtyard and depth-graded 85,000 litre, 15m long salt water swimming pool.
Cleverly configured interiors separate two family living from the children's wing and master suite. Both the media room and kids' lounge sit under vaulted ceilings. A fully fitted dressing room and fully tiled ensuite with dual shower heads add luxury to the sunny, restful master bedroom. Two family bathrooms create versatile options for family living and private accommodation. The granite kitchen is an open convivial space boasting a new induction cook-top.
Plentiful storage features throughout. The laundry is separate, the third garage is ideal for hobbies, and the roof is newly painted. Designed for comfort, relaxation and large scale entertaining, the home has indoor-outdoor speakers, best-in-class Zephyr ventilation and high speed internet.
Outdoors, the landscape of natural features is fully optimised and includes an amphitheatre/gully and a spring filled pond. Massive work has been invested in developing and re-vegetating the block, which is traversable via vehicle and walking tracks. A flying fox spans the amphitheatre. Pohutukawa, rimu, totara, manuka, kauri and flax attract a plethora of birds. Adding to the charm is an insulated forest dwelling, a tree-house built from recycled materials, an outdoor bath and picnic spots, all of which create a sense of 'own private world'.
Two big paddocks, an orchard, large veggie gardens plus two 9.95sqm sheds encourage sustainable living. Engulfed in serenity yet walking distance to Hillcrest schools and less than 10 minutes from the CBD, this lifestyle is hard to beat.
