This home started life in 1930 as a rural schoolhouse and was then relocated and transformed into a charming home on an easy-care 12,001m2 country site just a short drive from Silverdale township.
Our vendors have purchased and seriously seek to find the new caretakers of this amazing property.
From the moment you step into the spacious entry foyer, you know this home has a real "heart". Period features of the time are showcased as you explore the living spaces, with a high ceiling height, timber detailing and pretty lead light windows featuring in several rooms.
The home has enjoyed refurbishment, which cleverly blends heritage with industrial accents creating a modern living environment. The formal lounge just wants you to sit and relax and enjoy the fireplace in winter or step onto the deep decking in the summer months. The library and large foyer offer space to read or get creative.
The hub of this home is the family room, with formal dining space and country kitchen with large centre island. This room looks out onto a large terrace and is the perfect place to cook up a storm, gather and feast! A large scullery sits behind the kitchen and leads to a laundry room and over-sized office.
Accommodation is split between the lower floor - Master with Ensuite plus one further large bedroom - & the large attic rooms in the upper floor hosts a central lounge with a bedroom & ensuite either side.
A lot of thought has gone into how this home blends with the site offering year-round use. From the family room enjoy the terrace, pizza oven, chiminea and pool complex, all totally private.
For those with larger or extended family or those looking for further opportunites (Air BnB or similar), the 2 upgraded cottages will delight. The rustic "Thyme for Me Shed" is perfect for hobbies or creative arts. The separate garage (approx. 72m2) is a bonus with oodles of parking. An onsite bore - fantastic for extra water for gardens/cars in the dry seasons. Orchard, flat lawns, and space to explore.
Set on the outskirts of Silverdale, just 6 km away, you have country goodness with city convenience. Transport hubs, a variety of shops, mall, and excellent schools. To the north you will find Orewa Beach which is a destination in itself.
