Built in the era of refinement and elegance, this classic Hawke's Bay homestead personifies grandeur from its commanding position on the hill.
Set well away from the road at the end of a sweeping driveway, "Te Onepu" homestead beckons you to step inside. Walk into the living room and there, framed by a large picture window is one of the most impressive features of the property, the magnificent view over the garden, lakes and fields.
Separate from the living room is a formal dining room and for somewhere to relax in peace or if the children want their own space, there is a "snug" or separate family room.
True to its age the homestead has a large "farm" kitchen with lots of bench space and cupboards, a large oven with gas hob, plus a "Rayburn" oven which can not only be used for cooking, but also to heat the radiators throughout the house.
The four bedrooms are a generous size and there are two bathrooms, one for the family and the other an en-suite. The sun-room that opens onto the veranda could be the perfect place for a studio or even the fifth bedroom. For extra visitors there are even more bedrooms in the guest wing.
The cottage in the corner of the garden comprises two bedrooms, open plan living with a log fire, separate dining and a super veranda, the ideal environment for a "farm stay" - city dwellers will just love it.
"Te Onepu" is in a class of its own. Very rarely do we find properties with such well established trees and gardens overlooking the amazing landscapes of beautiful rolling hills and tranquil lakes. All within a comfortable commuting distance of Hastings, Waipawa and Otane. Is this what you have been dreaming of?
