Leisurely lifestyle with views
Now, more than ever, the time is right to head to the hills - and breathe. Fresh air, space and freedom - freedom from the city bustle. Views from this Western Bay property however, show how close Tauranga is. The panorama from the hilltop is breath-taking. Spectacular by day, it's magical at night - toasting sunset as lights start twinkling below. Covering a little over 20 hectares - including eight of covenanted bush and a babbling stream - there's around ten hectares of hillside and valley grazing. Complete with shed, yards and loading ramp; this is valuable cattle and sheep country. Farmed well, with tracks and the promise of solid returns - right now, land is the best investment you can make.
A sun drenched single level 385sqm country manor completes the lure of life in this precious spot - private entry to it's prime plateau, shared by a handful of neighbours. It's a prestigious address and this house meets all expectations. Colonial styling is defined by significant space and a brilliant blend of traditional formality with casual relaxation in the various living areas. Timeless in its appeal, the home has also kept pace with the times. The large kitchen has been renovated - offering a cook's dream with a revamped butler's panty, high end Bosch appliances and quintessential island bench as the homes centrepiece. The house has recently had a fresh lick of paint throughout. This is an invitation for family, friends and guests. Four ballroom bedrooms, three with ensuites plus a family bathroom shared by the fourth bedroom. Rooms embrace the views - window seats to snuggle up in the sun; outdoor flow to patios and gardens for endless days basking in this exquisite pocket of countryside hovering above the heart of the Bay of Plenty's coastline. It's called Bay of Plenty for good reason - particularly the backbone of Tauranga - which is thriving with its valuable land investment. What price do you place on that kind of lifestyle?
