Off the main hallway, a clever dual entry bathroom ensuites a guest bedroom with built-in wardrobe. This also opens outdoors to enjoy the gardens and surrounding countryside. Three further bedrooms here, all with sunset views, include two with walk-in robes and one with built-in wardrobe. These are serviced by the second large bathroom with double basin vanity, bath and separate shower. All bathrooms feature floor to ceiling Italian imported tiling and all bedrooms boast the finest New Zealand wool carpets.

The property provides a high-end security system with eight cameras positioned around the perimeter of the house, three large concrete water tanks and a small natural creek on the north side of the property with beautiful native trees that attracts native birds like Tui and Kereru.
