Features in the main house include three bedrooms and a study (currently used as a fourth bedroom), The dining and family room is open–plan to the lounge and kitchen. The rimu galley style kitchen with stainless steel bench-top and splash-back, stainless steel dishwasher and stainless steel double ovens, well equipped with lots of storage, two pantry cupboards and 12 power points. The lounge, with stunning matai flooring, fan, built in shelving and large cabinet has a large log fire which heats the whole home – no other heating required even on those cold winter nights. The bathroom boasts a spa bath, shower, toilet, and vanity. The house has a second toilet in the laundry. The whole house has been rewired in recent years and is insulated under floor as well as in the ceiling and walls with a heat transfer system to the master bedroom. The main home has also been reroofed in recent years. The 3m by 3.6m conservatory opening off the kitchen/dining area looks to the Northeast soaking in all the morning sun and leads out to a covered porch with an abundant grape vine which is a fantastic area for outside entertaining and access from the garage to the house.
The secondary building is a separate house which was moved to this property in 2004 and refurbished. It contains three smaller rooms and one very large room fitted with a heat pump and alarm. This building is ideal for a home office, rental, granny flat, boarders, etc. Each room has multiple power points and data points since being rewired and refitted a few years ago for use by a home business with several staff.
The third independent structure is a fully insulated recreational room which has been lined, carpeted and is currently fitted out as a library, it has been used as a bedroom and sewing room in the past.
At the back of the library is a garden shed.
We plan to change the boundries as I can’t afford to buy it all without a mortgage. So this is what we roughly plan for the boundries to look like. Mine will be the Red boundary, Charmange with the dark blue and her inlaws with the light blue. Charmange and her husband plan (DV) to build on the piece of land that we plan to buy.
