About this listing
Buyers were unable to complete, so this property is back on the market with vendors keen to move on.
An Oak Tree lined driveway leads you to this magnificent Architect Stewart Ross designed residence, set within an expansive 55 acre country estate just 25 minutes' drive from the city centre.
Completed in 2008, this Oamaru Stone and Cedar clad home features a double height light filled entry atrium overlooking a pond and native fernery. A generous open plan kitchen, dining and living room at the heart of the home. Accessed from here are a library, formal dining and separate lounge with a cathedral ceiling. Multiple outdoor sheltered courtyards connect these spaces and offer a variety of outdoor living options, including BBQ area and outdoor fireplace.
From the atrium, the service wing includes laundry, mud room, study, dry store, a generous subfloor wine cellar and access to internal garages and upstairs large games room. There is an additional detached double garage and large dog yard. An accessible ground floor guest wing includes a bedroom, ensuite, walk in wardrobe and west facing patio.
A glazed link from the atrium includes a breathtaking indoor solar heated pool, with glulam structure and cathedral ceiling, bathroom, entertaining area and outdoor secured courtyard with spa.
The upper level includes two double bedrooms, a bathroom and separate toilet, and a gallery area that leads you to a substantial master suite with a generous master bed, walk in wardrobe, chic ensuite with dressing area and a sun drenched north facing balcony overlooking the lake and landscaping.
A self-contained cottage accessed separately from the main residence caters for various accommodation requirements and includes a full kitchen, living, bedroom and bathroom.
Extensive and impressive landscaping surrounds the home and incudes a large lake with a central island connected by boardwalk. An extensive vegetable garden with large glass house and potting shed, an orchard with over 50 apple and pear trees, berry beds and grape vines.
The operational farm is supported by a machinery barn and workshop, a worker's apartment, a 1200 bale hay shed and four bay covered yards. There is a large hazelnut orchard, extensive shelter belts, stock fencing and cattle yards with loading ramp. The owners are currently running Alpacas, growing hay and fattening beef cattle. The pasture has been sewn with horse friendly grasses. The farm offers leasing opportunities, revenue production, or the simple delight of working on your own land.
This magnificent property offers a lifestyle opportunity that is rarely, if ever, matched.
