This character 3 bedroom villa with 9586 sqm of established grounds and a stony bottom stream is located just 15-20 minutes drive to Mangonui Village and Doubtless Bay. The villa has great bones, with plenty of scope for you to develop and realise its potential. It is located in a beautiful rural setting, surrounded by lawns and fruit trees, and is very sheltered and sunny.
Most of the land is near flat, banking down to the stream that forms the north-eastern boundary. Surrounding land rises up on either side with established native forest to the east and farmland to the west. The property is surrounded by large trees which shield it from the road and winds, while still allowing in lots of sunshine due to the north facing aspect of the valley. The soil is a lovely clay loam and the property has been spray free for over 20 years, perfect for growing your own healthy fruits and vegetables.
The villa is a classic of the 1915-1930s era with a large bay window in the front bedroom, high stud ceilings and native timber floors. It features two large living rooms; a lounge with wood burner and a little sunroom, and a living/dining room. The kitchen, bathroom, toilet and laundry are located to the rear of the home and lead out to a lovely private back deck and lawn. The ceiling and floors have been retrofitted with insulation and the home has been fitted with an HRV system to keep it warm and dry in winter. Adjacent to the house is a lock up garage and covered carport.
With further renovation and work this property could be polished up into a truly lovely countryside home. Call Michael Healy for further information or to arrange an appointment to view.
