Single Family Homes
Privately tucked away, this eye-catching, two-storey cedar home impresses from the moment of arrival. Centrally positioned on 1.018 ha, it is superbly angled for the lake and rural views and has tremendous family appeal.
Timber walls and ceilings exude an earthy aesthetic and both levels are newly carpeted. The well-appointed kitchen sits on a newly tiled floor, frames a lake outlook and is open plan with the dining room which has double doors out to the garden. The spacious lounge gazing over the lake and rural surrounds contains a snug, which is a favourite reading spot. Two well sized bedrooms at garden level are serviced by a full bathroom. The spacious laundry includes a toilet. Storage and wardrobes are generous.
A well-appointed master bedroom, an office or 4th bedroom and a mezzanine area occupy the upper level. An en-suite, large wardrobe and balcony give the main bedroom a luxurious feel. And with the office and mezzanine also having a balcony, there is the choice of sitting on either side of the home depending on the weather.
A heat pump keeps the interior ambient through all seasons, and nine solar panels and a log burner on wetback are eco-friendly perks. A stand of gum trees provides firewood.
Gardens are private and mature, and the back garden has a large shade house for horticulture pastimes. A lovely tree walk leads to four paddocks, ideal for a few sheep and a pony. Rounding off the property is a substantial 78 sq m double garage, a single garage workshop and loads of parking.
The home is warm and friendly, and the grounds allow children to grow up the good, old-fashioned Kiwi way, with plenty of space to play and adventure. Hamurana store and the lake reserve are moments away to enjoy all that the lake offers. Great position if travel to Rotorua and Tauranga are required.
New Zealand is a nation that welcomes overseas nationals to live, work and invest. Many expatriates, particularly those from Australia, U.S., Europe and increasingly China and Korea, are drawn to the largest city, Auckland, which has the country’s priciest housing stock.Show More
