Is 2019 the year to leave the office job behind and head for this vine-covered acreage? Living the life and creating your very own quality drop of wine could be a reality.
This perfect wine-estate escape with its picturesque home on 2.97 ha and established vineyard, lawns and gardens includes shedding and swimming pool. The vineyard has established Chardonnay, Muscat, Albarino and Gewurztraminer grape varieties. The recently renovated main residence has three bedrooms, master with en-suite and open plan living areas, with separate TV/media room. Tucked away at the far end of the house is a large studio currently used for at home teaching. The gourmet kitchen is a chef's dream, with lots of storage space and to top it off a generous family breakfast bar. The north facing living dining area has large bi-folding doors that access the outdoor wraparound shady veranda to sit and enjoy the vista and tranquillity of country living.
On site there is also a one-bedroom cabin/cottage with kitchen and a handy outdoor bathroom, the ideal space for the guest overflow.
Come and enjoy relaxed country living, privacy and space in this charming refurbished 1950s home that oozes character and charm surrounded by the vineyard. The balance of the land has potential for cropping or other horticultural pursuits, the choice is yours, as there is no lease in place. This is a boutique vineyard so it's small enough to be run part-time. But there is plenty of potential to do more, whether its boutique accommodation or something completely different.
Sitting on a quiet stretch of the Karamu stream and less than five minutes from the hustle and bustle of the Havelock North village which offers all the convenience of the restaurants, cafes, shopping and close to award-winning wineries. This is a beautiful property. If you dream of taking your love of a good drop to the next level, call me for a viewing. Plus GST (if any).
