Offered to the market for the first time is this delectable lifestyle property in the sought after Havelock North hills. Designed by renowned architect Barry Sweet the cedar clad home is an entertainers delight, with large formal living and dining rooms complemented by an open plan family room and kitchen, leading to covered verandahs to while away the evenings in the setting western sun.
A short drive up Lane Road and hidden behind the electric gate the home is nestled into its setting, positioned for privacy, maximising sun and views. As the gate slides back you pass through a mature garden, generous guest parking to the front of the home, garaging with internal access and additional good yard area to the rear of the property.
Upon arrival into a large entrance foyer this classic home unfolds charming spaces before you. Well designed with a variety of built in joinery and interesting ceiling lines, this home is unique and warm in feeling. While completely liveable as is, we expect in time someone will refurbish and decorate to bring a more modern twist to this timeless home.
The master bedroom is on the ground floor with walk in dressing room, ensuite with spa bath and separate shower. There is a further bedroom accessed from the master that would also double as a private office. Back off the hallway a stairwell or lift leads you to two double bedrooms together with a bathroom.
Wrapping around the home the land extends to 1.46 hectares, petanque court and level lawn close to the home. Access to the paddock can be gained from Lane Road or alternatively from the yard. A bore is in place for stock and irrigation to the garden. The house has rain water storage tanks underground. Additional extras include separate laundry and workshop, a double garage with walk in wine cellar.
This home has location, sun and views plus fantastic design detail. New owners will delight in the opportunity that exists in this sweet retreat.
