This unique Mediterranean-style residence is set amid mature, landscaped grounds. The vendors have enjoyed every minute of their time here; entertaining their family and hosting friends and guests. Now the time has come for them to downsize and move on.
Well presented and maintained the home is warm and comfortable with wood burning fire, vibrant décor and easy-care tiled floors which absorb the warmth from the sun's rays, further enhancing the home's European ambience. The expansive views of the bay and the ranges are divine and can be enjoyed from inside in winter, or from the sun-kissed decks in the summer.
The generous floor-plan comprises a large lounge and an adjoining dining area and kitchen, which has quality appliances. Sliding doors open to the decks, extending your living space for the summer. Off the hallway are the well-appointed master suite, the family bathroom and toilet; four guest bedrooms and a study, along with internal access to the double garage and laundry. This configuration is ideal for a large family or perhaps as a bed and breakfast option, for those who want an additional income stream.
The grounds are a delight; the decks enable you to peacefully relax in the sun or shade throughout the day enjoying the rural, sea and mountain views beyond the lush lawns, trees and flowerbeds. There's a huge parking area, a three-bay shed, a garden and woodshed, plus a paddock providing space to graze a pony or perhaps run a few sheep. Gums for firewood, a chicken pen, a vegetable garden, fruit trees and berries afford you with the opportunity for autonomy; a real advantage in these uncertain times, whilst the location, close to the highway for a straightforward commute and a short distance from the village of Mapua with its school and lively wharf, make this property an ideal choice for purchasers who want to stay in the community loop, but without compromise to their privacy.
