Encased by park-like grounds that give you the feel of a picturesque retreat and yet only a short stroll to the historic Puhoi Village, this luxurious Tudor-style residence offers a stimulating environment for large and extended families seeking that perfect sanctuary for a fun-filled and multi-generational lifestyle. Palatial in its proportions, yet intimate in ambience, this high-spec home is built around seven bedrooms, multiple living areas and numerous satellite rooms, establishing it as the definition of supersized family living.Arguably the most important feature that comes with ownership of this majestic property is the location. Settled by Bohemian immigrants in 1863, Puhoi is one of only two ethnic villages in New Zealand. In this scenic setting, you are surrounded by historical sites, including the iconic general store, the pub and Puhoi Valley Cheese.For our owners, the two-level home has been the centrepiece for all their family occasions with enormous freedom to fit everyone in. When they bought it 13 years ago, it was a humble 1980s cottage with not much in the way of scenery. It was the home of an Englishwoman who was nostalgic about the old country, so she got it constructed as a replica of an English cottage. Impressive from the street, the vast 390 square meter feature-rich home has an immediate impression of reassuring quality. It can be seen in the happy blend of the warmth of hardwood flooring, the luxury of stone and glass and the elegance of David Trubridge lighting. The paint scheme is sophisticated yet earthy, for an intimate connection to Puhoi's Bohemian essence.The main living areas in this property all flow and complement each other in design and functionality. In the formal dining room, you can seat 16 people with ease. The galley-style kitchen is high spec and very modern and has a contrasting black island and white quartz benchtops and is centrally located within the household. The kitchen is designed for high-capacity cooking and could easily serve two families because there are two of everything. There is even a scullery on the side for additional food preparation and storage needs. The living room is currently styled like a 'Cigar Lounge' although this has always been a no-smoking home. With its super modern fireplace, comfortable sofas and picture TV on the wall makes a great place to talk and relax after that long day. If talking is not your thing and relaxing while watching a movie is, then step into the theatre room, where you will find a large cinema screen and surround sound system. Looking for an escape and further fun, then there's a media/games room and any noise here won't disturb the rest of the household, so a great hang-out spot for the kids. The spacious master bedroom comes with a stunning ensuite and walk-through wardrobe and opens out to the garden and surrounding decks with the hot tub just around the corner. Upstairs you have six bedrooms including a second main bedroom with a walk-in wardrobe and all serviced by a large family bathroom and additional lounge area.Your primary parking options are located out front or if covered parking is required then there is the large double garage currently set up as a gym. Clearly, our owners have spared no expense to establish an environment that will be cherished for generations to come.If this property is of interest and you're looking for something unique with a point of difference in a prime location, then contact Nik Sams for that exclusive private viewing, as once you are there and have experienced it for yourself, you really will not want to leave.Rooms, Valley Cafe and Cheese Store, Manton Forest, Lothlorien Winery, Heritage Museum, Saleyards, Krippner, Slowater Tender
