Enjoy life in sunny secluded privacy where all your daily needs are within a few minutes' drive. Discover a hidden treasure down the curved palm lined drive from where the 5000 sq m (one and a quarter acres) property spreads out around the home. Step out from versatile living space to the stand out feature, the 170 sq m (approx.) of deck which spans the front and encompasses a solar heated pool on the north side. Relax, entertain and maximize your enjoyment of the Kiwi outdoor lifestyle while embracing the varied semi-circle of panorama over the urban and rural landscape by day, sparkling lights by night. (If there's any event with fireworks in the city you have box seat!). The elevated position ensures you enjoy your outlook while inside too. It's a versatile family home with an exceptionally generous and well-appointed kitchen linked to casual space, dining and the lounge, open to both deck and courtyard. Children get their own zone in a wing with a beautiful big bathroom. The four rooms provide options to use as bedrooms, office, or create a kid's lounge opening to the deck. Parents enjoy glorious isolation in the master suite above where an alcove at the top of the stairs suggests study nook or baby's room. Plenty of space on the sweeping lawn, enough grazing for a few sheep in the side paddock shaded by two huge avocado trees, while seven prolific plum trees star in the home orchard on the hillside. This is a fun and functional property with an immaculately maintained weatherboard home, easy indoor-outdoor flow, places to embrace all day sunshine, and a superb, fully compliant pool set into that magnificent deck. The stand-alone single garage sized shed is ideal for a man shed or to store work equipment. Privacy often comes at a price but here it delivers bonuses. You live equidistant between Bethlehem and Tauranga Crossing shopping centres, five minutes from the central city and not far from Bethlehem College.
