Countryside Living

SOLD - This listing was sold in August 2018
Here is your chance to escape the busy world and create an idyllic lifestyle for your family in the clean, fresh country air! This 16-hectare lifestyle block is set in a rural farming community just five minutes away from Oxford township.

Enter through the long tree-lined driveway to find a truly magical setting with picturesque views, lush pastures and a welcoming family home. Wide open spaces for the children to muck about in their gumboots and seek adventure. Plenty of appeal for the adults too, with cattle yards, nut grove, orchard, vegetable garden, bees in the Kanuka paddock and wild flower gardens. The duck pond with Mai Mai is the perfect bird watching spot for hunting enthusiasts!

The home provides a beautiful sense of warmth due to the timber walls and ceilings as well as the north-facing aspect. The open plan kitchen, dining and lounge exudes space and light thanks to the vaulted ceilings and picture windows that let the sun stream in. The living is heated by a large wood burner, with wetback, and the heat transfer system assures the rest of the home is kept cosy. Sliding doors open out from the lounge and flow out onto the verandah where you are surrounded by expansive gardens and mountain views - the ideal spot for alfresco dining and family gatherings.

The 3 double bedrooms, including a master with ensuite and main bathroom all flow off the hallway. Both bathrooms have been beautifully renovated, setting the scene for enhancement should you wish to update the rest of the house. New carpet throughout is an added bonus. An external studio outside, including shower, toilet, and sauna is perfect for guest accommodation. Ample sheds for garaging and storing equipment. The current owners have carried out annual re-grassing and fertilising to ensure the pastures are in top condition.

This property is equally appealing to retirees seeking a rural lifestyle in a farming community without all of the hard work. An easy drive to Oxford Area School, local shops and cafes and a 45-minute commute to Christchurch.

Also the option to purchase the neighbouring 24-hectare block to extend this fabulous lifestyle opportunity.
