In a tightly held enclave on the city boundary, this architect-designed Swiss style family home situated down a no exit lane sits on a mature, private, near 1 acre section with a gully aspect and abundant wildlife.
This unique and spacious home has five bedrooms, and scope to modernise, personalise and add value. Many original features are preserved, including wood-accent ceilings. A central fireplace forms natural room separation in the soaring main living area, while a log burner in the open plan domain naturally draws the eye. The living spaces open outdoors for effortless everyday living and entertaining. Casual and formal dining and living options reflect the homes sociability.
Four downstairs bedrooms, with in-built wardrobes/shelves, are served by an exceptional bathroom containing a tub, vanity, toilet, wet room and sauna. A master suite with a dressing room and en-suite, mezzanine landing, library area and office/sixth bedroom occupy the first floor. The mezzanine is the perfect spot to chill out and enjoy a good book. Judicious use of space includes loft access to storage.
A carport and further storage area extend off the country-sized laundry. Well-manicured grounds showcase an eclectic array of plantings, exotic palms and the large double garage has a workshop area. Offering quintessential town and country living, the property is brilliantly located close to Hillcrest schools, university, urban amenities and arterial networks. Waikato Hospital, Hamilton Airport, Waikato Innovation Park and Ruakura's inland port are all in short driving distance.
