Pristine Country Villa

This wonderful country villa is the one you've been waiting for. My tireless owners have spent years making sure no detail has been overlooked as they've carefully and thoughtfully completed the renovation of this grand old dame, and I'm sure you'll agree the results are worth it.

The kitchen is fully updated and extended to incorporate a spacious dining area, opening out to verandas on both sides. The beautiful Wagener wood range takes pride of place, warming the entire house via a radiator system and also heating the hot water. The solar system takes over when the sun's out so power bills stay low the year round. There's also a large butler's pantry complete with sink, ample bench space and storage.

With both a family living room and a sunny north facing formal lounge there's true flexibility for the family. Although the Wagener does a lovely job, both lounges have their own fires - a real luxury on the coldest of winter nights.

The walls and ceiling have been fully insulated, and the majority of windows are double glazed. This is truly a house for all seasons.

Outside the attention to detail continues. The acre section is beautifully landscaped and planted with a huge variety of trees, shrubs and flowers. You'll be eating from the garden all year with an assortment of stonefruit, pipfruit, citrus, kiwifruit, feijoas and grapes to harvest, plus whatever vegetables you choose to grow. There's ample water storage with 50,000L tanks for the house and a further 20,000L for the garden.

Location is key. The kids can walk to the local primary school, and for commuters the railway station is a three minute drive or a leisurely cycle ride. Greytown and Carterton are both just a few minutes away.

You'll need to move quickly. My owners are relocating and offers are invited by 4pm, Wednesday 2nd November. Open homes are Sunday 12:00 - 12:30 or call David on 021 289 0789 for a private appointment.
