A Parklike Place to Call Home
This beautifully crafted brick home, completed in 2000, evokes all the emotions of homecoming, enhanced by its setting in a private park where half the 1.7362 hectares is QEII covenanted native bush.
Two-storey brick homes are rare in New Zealand and even rarer one with the attention to detail displayed in the exterior brickwork where the many hues of Australian bricks meld in sun warmed harmony. The interior is equally detailed and provides expansive living in classic style with contemporary comfort, easy flow and a mix of open and intimate spaces enhanced by heart rimu in joinery and stair balustrading. The ground floor spans big efficient kitchen, breakfast bar and dining alcove overlooking the grounds, casual living and separate lounge with open fireplace and a formal dining room with a serving hatch from the kitchen. There is one double bedroom, bathroom, and laundry on the lower level. 'Gone with the Wind' style stairs lead to a long landing off which are two more bedrooms, a family bathroom, and a magnificent master suite with views west towards the ranges. The ground floor has diesel fired underfloor heating.
A breezeway from the triple garage links a one level two-bedroom dwelling which echoes the style and quality of the main home. Perfect for extended family who enjoy seclusion and sunshine with peace of mind proximity.
Live in your own private park where high hedges shield country roadside and views extend to the Kaimai Ranges without anyone seeing you. A gazebo sits on the sunny patio which faces a superbly set double infinity pool with its own changing room. The grounds slope gently from the home, the bush dropping to the gully below. A 125 sq m shed and workshop with 3-phase power increases your options. Joyce Road is a popular rural road with easy access into the city. Tauranga Crossing's new large local shopping centre is five minutes away, the CBD about ten.
