This premium country estate puts life and style into lifestyle living. The 1.6 hectare (more or less) property on the fringe of suburbia is home to an exquisite manor that exudes country charm and is full of luxurious places in which to indulge and unwind. From the get-go, this property impresses. An elegant security gated entrance-way, which opens to a sealed driveway leading to an extensive Lockwood home. The seamless interplay between residence and rural environment creates an all-pervasive sense of peace and unperturbed living. The home epitomises the iconic Lockwood brand, distinctive for its unique timber characteristics and aluminium profiles that together create a strong, versatile structure. The main living domain, set under a soaring ceiling, combines a marble-look composite stone kitchen, dining and lounge area in a bright airy space with views across the landscaped grounds. The centrepiece island bench allows the dining to be functional light filled space. This nature lover of a home has double bedrooms with inviting country outlooks and a full master suite opening onto extensive decking. Living areas also enjoy an intimate relationship with the professionally landscaped gardens, highlighted by a stunning water feature and irrigated lawns. Nestled between the main home and the guest quarters is a supreme pool room housing a heated salt water swimming pool. The tiled and fully enclosed room, which maintains a constant 26 degree temperature, has a commercial air-con system and alarmed doors. From your early morning swim to late night pool parties, this leisure centre is the ultimate for exercise and entertaining. The guest wing, comprising a kitchenette, double bedroom, sunny lounge with outdoor flow, enhances the property's versatility. Heat pumps keep the home and guest wing ambient through all seasons. No expense is spared in the automated double garage, which is insulated, carpeted to marine grade, fitted with abundant power points, storage and a workbench. A built-in storage cupboard in the attached double garage is the engine room for the domestic pump and solar power box, with solar-panels residing on the roof. The property is bounded by extensive deer fencing and camellia hedging and is superbly set up. An American-style three bay barn with concrete floor has three roller doors and three phase power. The punga garden house is also a special feature for the owners and has been greatly enjoyed. Animal handling is made easy with a loading ramp and stock yard. A six metre bore supplies water to the stock, lawns and outside with domestic water collected via rainwater. This is an opportunity not to be missed, located in an elite country lane, and referred to one of the best northerly locations close to the city and close to popular Puketaha primary School. It has all the credentials and luxuries needed to experience an incredible lifestyle. Also on the market and adjoining this property is a unique 22.9 hectare grazing block with dual access, which could be considered if more land is desired, and to keep the two blocks as one.
