Potential for work, rest and play combines with lifestyle and location on this flexible and unique rural property where you're surrounded by pasture but still close to amenities. Formerly the home and premises of a boatbuilder, the 7722sqm (approx.1.9 acres) of land accommodates a 190sqm modernised Lockwood main dwelling featuring four bedrooms, twin lounges and study/fifth bedroom. The contemporary kitchen flows through to rustic covered decking looking onto mature trees and green lawns. Timber floors, walls and ceilings offer a sense of warm ambience enhanced by a stone-surround feature fireplace. A huge central entertainers' patio separates the main house from a massive multi-purpose room currently set up as the ultimate man-cave but would convert easily to additional self-contained accommodation, subject to consents. The 240sqm boat-barn is divided into an expansive workshop space with 5.5m stud, mezzanine and showroom and is ideally set up for a light home-based manufacturing/fabrication venture. Set on picturesque grounds with a stream running through and lovely gardens, the property is an idyllic spot for raising the growing family with zoning for Dairy Flat Primary, Orewa College or Albany Junior and Senior High Schools. An appealing unique property geared for the home-based craftsman or someone simply looking to get away from it all while maintaining proximity to the city with a 30-minute (off-peak) commute into Auckland. Act fast - these opportunities don't present every day.
