This is how one occupant once described this Victorian jewel. Set on a mix of native bush and park-like manicured grounds over 61 hectares, this magnificent property evokes a sense of grandeur from a bygone era from the moment you enter the grounds. After arriving via the sweeping driveway you are greeted by a flowing staircase upon entering the home, inviting you to inspect the upstairs living quarters via its warm native timbers and heritage features. Here, you will find four bedrooms, two bathrooms and a sitting room, each eloquently decorated to exacting standards whilst retaining country charm. Large sash windows treat the admirer to light filled rooms, each with a wonderful outlook across the grounds.
Downstairs combines an abundance of family living areas with the functionality provided by the country-styled kitchen and separate dining area. The rooms are large, exquisitely adorned and perfect for relaxing or hosting social occasions and afford a level of comfort and style only achieved by a property of this distinction. For added amenity the lower level is complemented by a self contained cabana, with ensuite, ready for extra guests and extended whanau.
Outdoor spaces surrounding the house where one can seek shade and find tranquility amongst the trees and garden. A flowing brook meanders through the property to complete the idyllic scene, or to cool off you could take a dip in one of the nearby swimming holes of the Kaiwhata River.
This stately manor has huge potential for income generation by operating a wedding venue or up-market Bed and Breakfast. Just 15 minutes from Riversdale Beach, and only a few minutes to the recently opened Homewood Storeroom Cafe, make this property super attractive to those seeking a prestige home with ample acreage and conveniences nearby. Lovingly cared for this beautiful lady will shine for many years to come.
