Located in a private, elevated position with views over Lake Wentworth, vineyards and the Wairau Valley to the Richmond Range, and over Cook Strait to Wellington, this impressive home provides an appealing rural lifestyle handy to town services. The two-storey house is sturdily constructed using 70 mm Hebel panels, well-sealed with Elastomeric paint. The design is attractive and practical with extensive open plan living spaces, a kitchen catching the morning sun, easy access to outdoor options, a media room, four generous bedrooms, three bathrooms, plenty of storage and a large internally accessed garage. It provides for very comfortable living and would work well for multi-generational living or earning additional income through bed and breakfast. Additional character has been introduced through the occasional use of recycled timber doors. A woodburner, a heatpump and four zones of underfloor heating in the kitchen and bathrooms ensure warmth throughout the year. Potable water is provided from the Fairbourne water scheme, stored in a 21,000 litre tank onsite and water for the garden comes under pressure from the Southern Valley Irrigation scheme. The extensive gardens flow around the house and all the way down to the bottom of the section. There is plenty of space for outdoor living, hobbies and activities, and growing fruit and vegetables. Numerous mature trees offer shelter, shade, firewood and peacefulness, and the use of large rocks provides a feeling of comfort and establishment. There is parking for a boat and campervan and easy vehicle access. Swinging a golf club, jogging through grapes, cycling down valleys, sipping local wines, fishing rivers and sailing in the sounds are all on the doorstep. This is a wonderful opportunity to enjoy a taste of the good life in New Zealands sunniest region....
