This captivating 310sqm home seamlessly blends the elegance of an old-style country homestead with the cutting-edge comfort of modern conveniences.

A long driveway winds through the landscape, culminating in a stunning schist and black cedar frontage. Divided into three sections and connected by airy glass hallways, the home gives off a sense of rustic beauty.


Step into Homestead Character

Upon entry, a towering 2.7m feature stone wall complements the polished concrete floors and exposed wooden ceiling trusses, instantly establishing the home’s old-style country charm.

The inviting living area features a classic wood-burning fireplace with a stone mantel, providing warmth and ambience. A sitting alcove tucked away creates a cosy nook perfect for relaxation.

The visionary kitchen features a rustic barn door leading to a functional butler’s pantry. Both the kitchen and dining areas seamlessly connect to the outdoor entertaining space, offering breathtaking views of the Mangemangeroa estuary.


Homestead Comfort and Convenience

Four bedrooms are nestled in the wings of the home, ensuring privacy. The spacious master bedroom, accessed directly from the living zone, features plush carpeting, a dramatic gabled ceiling, and outdoor access leading to a luxurious ensuite and walk-in dressing room.

A second glass link leads to a two-storey wing housing a modern haven of comfort and functionality. Here, you’ll find two additional bedrooms, a bathroom, a separate toilet, and a double garage with laundry facilities.

Carpeted stairs lead to the upper floor, where a delightful fourth bedroom awaits. This versatile space can be transformed into a lounge, media room, or home office, offering a tranquil retreat with stunning views.

This remarkable home is a successful fusion of old-world charm and modern innovation, creating a warm, inviting, and undeniably stylish haven for those seeking the perfect blend of rustic character and contemporary comfort.
