Entry to this astonishingly private and lushly surrounded home is via a tree lined driveway. Kereru, Tui and Fantails frolic happily amidst the shrubbery, native plantings, and flowering violets - literally making the trees sing.
Excellent fencing and the well-established gardens give the home a feeling of seclusion, a truly private oasis. The slow reveal within the home itself a joy at each turn. At the heart of the home, a large recently renovated u-shape kitchen with excellent Bosch appliances, instant hot water, enormous walk-in pantry, loads of workspace with a direct view across dining and living to a huge, framed wisteria canopy and outdoor entertainment area. The home has also has plentiful storage to tuck all the clutter away.
Take a turn from the central hub to the western master with walk in robe and ensuite, or to the east for three bedrooms, beautiful family bathroom and separate laundry and toilet. It feels like you've already got so much room for family and friends, open yet another door to reveal a large living room with beautiful fireplace and views out to the garden on each side. Drape your furniture with furs in winter and snuggle by the fire, or fling open the doors in summer and enjoy the garden outlook. This room has been renovated to enjoy all seasons, a living area you just want to sink into and enjoy.
The garden is prolific and sumptuous, with fruiting specimens, large berry house, a bridge across a sunken BBQ and picnic area, double garage workshop, another smaller shed, not to mention the extraordinary tiled and covered outdoor spa.
Truly spacious inside and out, so close all the good things Otaki has to offer yet you'll feel like you're a million miles away. Great to visit and certainly an excellent place to call home. Current vendors have enjoyed many years here but now seek their next adventure - having created a lovely legacy for new owners to enjoy.
