Wattle Downs

Located in the leafiest, and possibly the most sought-after street in town, this home is a quiet, secluded paradise in which to enjoy an enviable lifestyle.

The venue of many happy garden parties, you too can enjoy lounging under the shade trees after a long lunch, with dappled sunlight filtering through, and the sound of children playing hide and seek in the shrubbery.

In this magical 6,793m2 setting, there are a myriad of fruit trees including citrus, quince, stone and pip fruit, berries, and a huge vegie garden to feast from all year round. Magnificent specimen trees such as maples and nut trees abound. Excellent outbuildings feature a double garage, greenhouse, large and varied implement and tools sheds, and an attractive, elderly rough-sawn timber stable converted to a comfortable studio/reading room.

The fine family home has a beautifully proportioned living room, separate dining area, spacious eat-in kitchen, laundry, two bathrooms and three double bedrooms. An amazing 4 x 4m2 study/fourth bedroom has a fabulous bank of floor to ceiling storage cupboards. Glowing timbers create a warm, welcoming atmosphere ably assisted by a Metro logburner and heatpump, but the icing on the cake is having extensive covered decks on both sides of the house ensuring great indoor/outdoor entertaining and alfresco dining.

This 'sanctuary' will appeal to all sectors of the market, but especially to families looking for a country lifestyle within an easy bike ride of the village and schools, and yet only an hours commute to Wellington's CBD. This is, indeed, living the kiwi dream.

Deadline closes Thursday 6th October 2016.
