This beautiful 1.94ha property is situated in sought-after Armstrong Road just a short stroll from Te Puna Village, five minutes from Bethlehem and ten minutes to Tauranga's CBD. The 402 sq m executive single-level brick home with 2.7 m stud ceilings and quality fixtures throughout is nestled in superb parklike grounds. Huge picture windows and stacking ranch-sliders provide stunning garden views and access to the covered outdoor dining area and 100 sq m wrap-around deck.
The home offers open-plan living, with the kitchen boasting two granite-topped benches, an enviably spacious walk-in pantry, large gas hob, built in fridge-freezer and extensive storage. The entire living area is heated by an efficient wood-burner as well as a gas fireplace. There are four spacious bedrooms, the master with a walk-through wardrobe and sun-drenched ensuite.
Large built-in wardrobes provide ample storage in the other rooms. A 6x5m utility room, a built-in tractor shed with roller door, and a 6.5x6.5 m internal garage all open to the concreted area servicing the rear of the home. The house overlooks the extensive gardens and lawns. A stream runs through the property opening into a picturesque pond with its own island and resident birdlife. An impressive stand of over 40 redwood trees graces the front half of the grounds and together with the roadside swamp cypresses, create a peaceful, shielding atmosphere for the property. Seasonal changes make for ever- interesting vistas - the flowering rhododendrons, magnolias, roses and dogwoods in spring, spectacular autumnal russets and golds, the beautiful bare trunks of the deciduous trees amidst the evergreens in winter, and the verdant shade and shelter in summer - all this is intimate theatre from within and without this impressive home. Great neighbourhood, great community and a truly special property. Boundary indicative only
