About this listing

SOLD - This listing was sold in June 2019.

Imagine the tranquillity of your own private retreat with views across rural Manawatu as far as Mt Ruahepu on a clear day, yet only 10 minutes to Palmerston North. The unique hexagonal form of the expansive residence is a masterpiece of design and engineering.
Marvel at the rustic rural block of 8.1427Ha (20 acres more or less) with craggy hilltops, two man-made lakes and scenic gardens which is home to multiple water, land and bird species. The tinkers in the family are bound to be excited by the possibilities within the 96m² implement shed and workshop. In addition there are several structures around the property with multiples uses. e.g. chook house, animal pens, machinery and implement sheds, workshops and shelters.
Elevated above the lakes the home is comprised of four bedrooms (three with ensuite bathrooms), formal and informal living areas, two kitchens, and a split level multi use office/study area. All of this is spread over 711m² on two levels. The ground floor welcomes you in through double doors featuring leadlight and stained glass, then through the grand entrance to the living areas boasting full length windows with views of the lakes and birdlife. While the stylish curved staircase leads you to the upper floor which gives a mesmerising feel of being on a luxury cruise liner, with its irregular angles, curves and porthole views. Every part of this monumental home has been designed and engineered to impress with a list of high quality fixtures and fittings including a central audio system, while the layout of the home lends itself to options such as a boutique guest house.
In addition to the main residence is a spacious two bedroom independent apartment with large open plan living area and extra breakout space or third bedroom.
This property is really something else and has to be seen to truly appreciate its many outstanding features. Contact Team Mansfield for your personal viewing. Council File available including Code of Compliance.
