Gorgeous Country Barn Home on 1.6ha
Character, Charm and Modern Style
This barn style home exudes character, style and offers something a little different. Nestled on a peaceful 1.6 hectares in the serene Ararimu countryside and privately situated off a quiet no exit road. Immaculately presented, it is solidly built and split over two levels with the lower level opening to the outdoors from nearly every angle.
A thick double cedar front door is framed by a large timber archway enclosed by established shrubbery. Opening to a large atrium style room combining the kitchen, dining and lounge areas with heated concrete floors, a vaulted ceiling, and sultry wood accents that enhance the rustic design and continue throughout the home and a large wood burning fireplace fosters a relaxed, warm atmosphere. Cleverly designed for practicality, the rustic kitchen features American oak cabinetry, a granite benchtop and an expansive scullery. A servery window opens to an outside bar covered by a huge portico looking over the restful countryside, providing the perfect setting for any occasion.
The home offers three double bedrooms and three bathrooms giving plenty of space for the family or house guests. The master suite is situated on the upper level and flows effortlessly to a large timber deck overlooking the entertaining area below. A generous adjoining living area could be utilised as a home office or similar if desired. An ensuite and a walk-in wardrobe complete this sumptuous living space.
Slider doors open to an impressive solar heated, saltwater pool surrounded by a sun-drenched entertainment area. A double internal garage incorporates a kitchenette, laundry facilities and direct access to outdoors.
The five paddocks are well secured with post and rail fencing and are suitable for horses, sheep, or any type of lifestyle animal. A large 10m x14m shed includes a workshop area, one stable, tack room and a one bedroom sleepout. An additional stable complex offers two stables and a large feed room.
