Beyond the gated entrance your first impression of this lifestyle property will be everlasting: 'THIRLMERE' a stunning, rare 1887 villa positioned amongst manicured grounds, colourful gardens, grapevines that flow boundlessly and an abundance of established fruit trees; you will enjoy the luxury of fresh produce throughout the year.
This irresistible residence has maintained its unique original charm whilst being brought into the 21st century with some modern adjustments- it has the character of yesteryear with modern convenience. A grand hallway, high ceilings, ornate stained glass features & the original coal range- there is character to be found throughout the home. Featuring 3 large bedrooms, master suite with ensuite & heat pump. The formal dining space is separate from the open plan lounge & dining area but has previously been utilised as a fourth bedroom. All spaces present stunning original features, a mix of polished timber & carpet floors. Kept warm & cosy in the winter by a wood burner with wetback. A deck connects the home to the original farm cow shed, which is charming as well, but now provides car shed, wood shed, workshop and storage spaces.
Athenree is well known for its micro climate & fertile volcanic rich soil which is the reason 60 Hass avocado trees were added 18 months ago which will provide income in the near future. Income over the summer is provided by the fruit stall- a great outlet for excess fruit produce. Another enticing feature to this property is the shedding: 70sqm 3 bay, American barn shed as well as a 78sqm 1/2 round barn shed both with concrete floor & power- both are rented for storage and have a separate entrance to the house. Nestled within a private, friendly neighbourhood community in the heart of rural Athenree & within a 2 min drive to SH2 and approx. a 5 min drive to Waihi Beach or 10 minutes to Katikati is certainly another plus for this quaint lifestyle property.
