Living your lifestyle dream

Wanting to fulfil your long-held desires of a tranquil rural lifestyle? Come and have a look at this farmlet in the country! Only 4 kilometers from SH2, and ideal for commuting, this three hectare lifestyle property, in 7 paddocks, enjoys a fantastic location, great views of the western ranges, and is the perfect place to raise children as there is plenty of grassy areas for budding Black Caps to practice, or to park the ski boat or the motor home. A circular driveway leads to the five bedroom, two bathroom homestead, which has been freshly painted and sits in the middle of a beautifully planted garden with mature trees and shrubs and a big aviary. An entrance foyer leads through double doors to a spacious, recently renovated living room and separate dining or family room, and almost every room in the house opens through ranch sliders to the outdoors. The very large kitchen has a central island, and delightful views of the garden, paddocks and the Tararuas. The master bedroom has been recently refurbished and has a walk in robe and a new ensuite, and there's a family bathroom with a king-sized glass shower. Four further double bedrooms, a second kitchen and a huge rumpus room (with carrara ceiling roses and scotias) have lots of scope to have value added, add a little imagination, a good toolbox and some elbow grease, could pay handsome dividends. A double garage and workshop, a good shed and dog kennels are great assets, so bring the kids, the pets, your recreational toys, and plant a crop, rear a few calves and lambs, put your vegies in, and let the 'good life' begin on Norfolk Road!
