Rarely do properties of this calibre and proximity to the Village of Havelock North come to market. Sitting proudly atop Busby Hill offering panoramic views over the Village, the Plains to Mt Ruapehu and Te Mata Peak.
Designed by Albert Garnett in the 1950s, the property has been extensively renovated, most recently by the present owners, under supervision of architect Simon Clarkson to create an outstanding contemporary home that successfully retains the charm of yesteryear.
The sweeping tree lined drive leads to a completely private property with substantial parking and five car garaging. The garaging links directly to the home or alternatively approach by an internal courtyard connecting the kitchen and open plan dining area, creating a natural flow for al fresco living.
A second separate lounge area with its own facilities is available for extended family living and, in addition to the four bedrooms there are two offices and a workshop/hobby room.
The home of some 400 sq m's sits on 4631 sq m's and resource consent has been obtained for two residential sections. These will not interfere with views from the main home and have great views of their own. This provides a solid land bank or future development option. The gardens provide the perfect backdrop to the home defining areas and ensuring privacy without in any way interfering with the view that needs to be seen to be truly appreciated.
The home's location means that it is easy to stroll to the village where you can enjoy a coffee in one of the many cafes that are in the centre of this vibrant community, recently voted one of the most desirable places to live in New Zealand.
