Quality constructed around the 1990s boasting a prized northerly aspect and a soaring 4.8 metre high apex ceiling in the lounge, this stunning residence accents rich Rimu timber ceilings throughout the living areas and large master suite. Meticulously tended grounds and a driveway lined with Australian Blackwood trees lead to the spacious double door entry foyer where a breathtaking picture window celebrates gorgeous views of the rear garden. There is access from here into the marine carpeted garage which incorporates a laundry with outdoor access and a spacious study. On the opposing side, double doors open into sun-drenched open plan...

family living with fireplace, window-walled dining section and the chic kitchen with walk-in pantry, sweeping formica benchtops and breakfast bar, stainless steel appliances and another large ornate picture window drawing in delightful views of the gardens. Also adjoining the kitchen, there is a cosy sitting room. All the living areas here open onto an outstanding north-facing paved courtyard covered with attractive Mediterranean-style dining under deciduous grape vines which offer shade appropriate to the seasons. A water feature and outdoor lighting add to the relaxed ambience. Three bedrooms include the glamourous master with dramatic feature ceiling, large walk-in wardrobe, sleek en-suite with spa bath, shower, double vanity and garden patio access. Both other spacious bedrooms feature built-in wardrobes and share a family bathroom with bath and glass shower. Off the hallway there is a powder room and numerous storage facilities, generously catered for in this ultra-comfortable home. Outdoors, two major sheds with concrete floors, power and lighting flank a covered area, more super-spacious storage for whatever may be required. There are fourteen electric and wire and batten fences, stock yards and pen and loading ramp for cattle, and an orchard with feijoa, apple, lemon, grapefruit and mandarin trees plus a vegetable garden. Prestigiously located with exceptional indoor/outdoor integration and entertaining venues, we have instructions to sell this superbly sized high calibre home by auction if not before.
