All the romance of a Jane Austin novel

Its not often that I am speechless, but from the first view of this enchanting villa, set in picturesque surrounds and nestled into rolling hills, it took my breath away. Set in over 10 acres of lush flat to lightly sloping countryside, 10 minutes north of Dannevirke, the property is ideal for big family occasions or garden weddings. With rolled verandahs wrapping around the handsome villa, the homestead is surrounded by mature trees and gorgeous gardens. Boasting two spacious lounges, each with its own fire-place and absolutely stunning native timber features, carefully carved mantles, beautiful doors and kauri ceilings. The home has 3 large double bedrooms, each with a set of french doors opening to the covered verandah, perfect for enjoying your morning cup of tea surrounded by birdsong and serenity. The kitchen is well appointed with all the modern conveniences of today seamlessly intertwined with the stylings of the era of the home. Soak your cares away in the claw foot tub or enjoy the convenience of a separate shower. The home has been re-roofed and repainted and has been lovingly restored and immaculately maintained. The property has a single garage, 3 bay implement shed and lots of garden sheds for storage. With calf sheds, pig pen and chook house there is the opportunity to fully embrace country living. A two-stand milking (a piece of history as it was one of the first in the district) and single plant shearing shed make running a few livestock easy. Bore water and pump feed troughs plus a rainwater tank with new pump and filters feeds the house. The perfect lifestyle of those downsizing from the farm, those who want to get out of the rat-race or for those with growing families dreaming of space and freedom. This property is something special. With lots of scope to do more or just beautiful as it is, be prepared to fall in love.
