The original clinker brick and tile homestead has remained basically untouched for nearly fifty years so bring your inspiration and design skills to return it to its former glory. Quality built in 1972 by Ted Cattle, a respected local builder, it has four bedrooms and two bathrooms plus a large rumpus room. The double garage is adjacent to the home. The elevated position allows two of the bedrooms plus the lounge and dining room views across the water to Rangitoto, Motutapu and Motuihe islands. The original gardens and mature native trees adjacent the homestead are beautiful. The second building is plywood and batten construction, has its own driveway, two bedrooms, two bathrooms and a double internal entry garage. Each is private from the other and has its own water supply and septic system. The land is 4.0468 Hectares (over ten acres) with a long road frontage, ample grazing plus native bush and a pine plantation. The property offers total peace and privacy with beautiful bird song from the resident pheasant, Tui, fantail and Kereru. There is also a non-operational deep wellbore, storage shed and chicken coop plus vegetable garden and orchard.
