Just on the outskirts of Waipawa in Central Hawke's Bay, 30 minutes south of Hastings, sits this grand 100-year-old homestead on approximately two acres of park-like gardens and grounds. A fairytale lifestyle awaits its next guardians with boundless opportunities to live and work in paradise.
The lovingly renovated 350 sq m home will impress with plenty of space for the family, extended family, or to run a home-based business (currently run as an art gallery). Although renovated (including rewired and re-plumbed), this stately home displays timeless character features true to the original 1912 build.
Relocated to site in 2013, the homestead consists of five bedrooms currently, with the potential to transfer back to seven bedrooms. Completely built in native timbers being a mix of Matai, Rimu and Kauri, with the open living areas flowing out to a sun-drenched deck. The alfresco dining area, under a sea of roses, will be sure to play host to numerous summer gatherings. The rustic kitchen with a beautiful Rimu island bench complements the farmhouse theme. The additional extra rooms could offer an extra lounge or home business area; there are several options with this one of a kind property.
Wander through the tranquil gardens filled with native trees, shrubs, roses and fruit trees which attract the birds and bees. Replenish your soul and enjoy the stream and pond which are added attractions.
The shed is a dream for the handyman or just a place to store gear and includes open areas and a fully lockable studio. The beautifully handcrafted separate Swiss-style studio is an excellent addition to the property and could easily be that extra accommodation or even an Airbnb opportunity.
