As green as possible in so many ways, this quality lifestyle home is full of eco-friendly benefits. Part of the exclusive Plumtree Lane community off Windmill Road, the 8277sqm property lies in a coveted Tamahere location. A builder's own, the five-year-old double glazed home is custom-designed for easy relaxed family living. Year round comfort and efficiency are generated by an innovative water heating system, super-thick 140mm wall insulation, smart use of materials and a north-facing aspect. Floors and foundations are also insulated. The underfloor water heating system is on a timer to optimise the internal climate. Passive heating elements also contribute towards making this a home for all seasons. It achieves the ultimate goal of being warm in winter and cool in summer. Underfloor heating in the media room makes for toasty movie nights over winter. The room also has black-out capacity. Thoughtful layout separates the family bedrooms from the office and master suite, which is supported by a large walk-in robe, and opens to a portico setting. The piece-de-resistance is the ensuite's walk-in shower with a feature full glass wall framing a lush garden setting. Entertainers will be drawn to the kitchen, which is absorbed into the family zone and has smooth outdoor flow to picturesque alfrescos. Two island benches means no vying for work space, while two full ovens, including a steam oven in the scullery, are particularly handy when hosting big gatherings. Indoor-outdoor speakers can be cranked up to get things really rocking. As well as an double internal access garage, the property has a three-bay shed with three phase power. This shed will suit tradies, home handy-people and hoarders down to the ground. Fruit trees, berries and citrus are here for the picking on this well-presented block with native plantings. The property is in zone for Tamahere Model Country School and Hillcrest education. School buses service the area. Hillcrest shops are a ten-minute drive.
