Surveying the countryside from the top of a hill, this Waikite wonder reigns supreme on approximately 3.8ha block. An option exists to purchase the adjoining 50ha. A sweeping driveway leads to the tasteful David Reid-built residence designed by Darryl Church. In tune with the surroundings, the home achieves a beautiful synergy through its cohesive external and internal elements. Board and batten cladding enhances the rustic feel and the warm light-filled interior echoes elements of nature.
Modern design, clean lines and polished concrete aggregate flooring create a cool contemporary feel. Abundant double glazing optimizes the outlook across the stunning valley. All windows frame picturesque views, and glimpses of Mt Ruapehu are discernible. Two living areas, four carpeted bedrooms, two bathrooms and a study with in-built storage round out the ample floor-plan. Set under a chapel ceiling, the large family room enjoys an intimate relationship with the all-weather deck and pool. A designer kitchen and large scullery cater to the crowds. Parents are treated to a restful master retreat with a generous ensuite and walk-in wardrobe. Two vanities, a bath and large tiled shower feature in the family bathroom. The large laundry has walk-in linen facilities and a skylight, and the double garage contains a multi-functional mudroom and the thermostat-controlled diesel heater that fuels the underfloor heating system. An open fire adds ambience and comfort. There is copious storage throughout and the convenience of two hot water cylinders.
Veggie gardens and fruit trees give a nod to sustainability, and the land itself is suited to horses and lifestyle animals. Equidistant to Rotorua and Taupo, both centres are a 25 minute drive of the property. Local school buses service the area. A brilliant lifestyle choice, Waikite Valley is surrounded by beautiful lakes, thermal waters and hot springs.
