In a character filled world of its own, ten minutes from Napier airport, this private homestead on 3.5Ha sits in an elevated north facing position in the Esk Valley. The mystic charm of the tree lined drive leads you to your own secret place where the ambience of The Terraces, nestled into its environment since 1908, unfolds around you. Extensive renovations and modern conveniences keep the 240 sq m home up with todays modern living expectations. Warmth generated by a woodburner (on wetback), the heat permeates through the home. Original native timbers throughout, recent refurbishment including new carpet, drapes, fresh colours and an ensuite bathroom has this home ready for new owners. C.V. $810,000 (2013) The kitchen opens to the dining enjoying the morning sun, a fabulous family space which has entertained a crowd on many occasions. Tall cedar doors open to the spacious lounge, a bay window brings the outside in, a place to study the garden trees, abundant birdlife or your grazing animals. Cedar doors, both French and bifold, open to a covered verandah which in turn leads to an expansive lawn surrounded by established trees. The living areas of the home integrate easily with the outdoors, accommodating family functions, a game of bullrush, long lunches, or suitable for an exclusive wedding. The wide hallway runs the length of the house, perfect for displaying your art collection, and opens to the accommodation. The master bedroom, with walk in wardrobe and new ensuite, has French doors opening out to the covered verandah. The spacious guest room also has French doors leading to its own covered verandah overlooking the valley, a special space to unwind in the afternoon sun.
