OVERVIEW

This incredible property is completely exquisite and timeless. It is truly like no other.

Steeped in history, this is the original Ratanui homestead, circa 1892, and is a thing of rare and true beauty. This beautiful home has been impressively extended and improved over the years, as well as impeccably maintained by the current owners over their four decades of tenure here. It is perfectly poised on the hillside, looking down the valley with stunning views across the plain to the sea and horizon. Four bedrooms include a huge master, two doubles and one single (or office). Three living rooms include a sun-drenched conservatory with jaw-dropping sea views.

The stunning, thoughtfully curated and maintained gardens unfold gracefully around this glorious home. Every avenue reveals a new burst of colour and delight. A stunning water feature adorns the backyard, situated in a rich tapestry of greenery. Multiple raised vegetable beds provide a plethora of produce and there's a chicken house, and even an aviary - currently populated by doves!

A number of excellent outbuildings are peppered around the property. Most impressively, a superb converted double-storey converted stables, in which the top floor has made an amazing study and music room for the current owners. There's also multiple workshop spaces in a variety of utility sheds, more than enough to satisfy the needs of an entire family and more.

Other features include a private spring as a water source, three water tanks, wood stove with wetback, fireplace, two heat pumps, heat transfer system, partial double-glazing, large Smeg oven and induction cooktop, and so much more.

Located just five minutes from the excellent Te Horo School and ten minutes to Otaki, this property will suit families looking for peace and beauty within easy reach of all amenities. And only a 55 minute cruise down the expressway into the capital - an easily commutable distance!
