This unique two storied 1920s property will have those that appreciate timeless elegance lured from the moment they enter.
Step back in time and see the original beauty retained in the native timbers that feature strongly throughout, the preservation of the panelled and decorative plaster ceilings. The leadlight windows add extra character to this iconic treasure. A rimu staircase leads up to two light and sunny double bedrooms with walk-in robes, one sweet single and the family bathroom. Downstairs a quaint fourth bedroom or office.
A smart kitchen, neat as pin with a beautiful rimu benchtop, complete with walk-in pantry. The laundry is both practical and spacious, a separate toilet with an outdoor entry sits adjacent to the back porch. A generous formal lounge perfect for entertaining with french doors giving the option to adjoin or separate the living/dining room, both complete with north facing bay windows catching the sun and ornate fireplaces.
The sunroom is a magic spot to delight in the beauty of your surrounds, equivalent to a seat in the garden anytime of the year. For the cooler days, diesel fuelled radiator heating provides more than adequate warmth throughout this family home.
Solid as the day it was built, this magnificent 280sqm residence sits on grounds to compliment within an established and picturesque haven of stately trees, flowering shrubs and manicured box hedging, all planted with careful consideration to retain the sun yet provide necessary shelter.
A tennis court, garage and other traditional outbuildings complete this glorious property set on close to 15 acres of country living, just a short drive from Winton and approximately 150km to Queenstown.
Can you continue to bestow the love evident of the previous three owners given to this grand Lady Barkly residence?
