Undoubtedly one of Marlborough's most spectacular lifestyle properties, located just 10 minutes from town, this generously proportioned, attractively designed home sits nestled amongst well established gardens on 1.5ha of fertile Rapaura land near the banks of the Wairau River.

The well-thought-out home exudes a rustic elegance and offers a unique lifestyle second to none. Morning sun warms the four well-appointed bedrooms located on the north eastern side of the house and the central 'cupola' filters light down into the kitchen and heart of the home.

A spacious scullery located behind the kitchen allows for plenty of storage and the perfect preparation area when entertaining, while a formal western sitting room captures the last of the sun while you enjoy evening drinks with friends.

Spacious lawn areas allow plenty of room for children to run around, and the in-ground swimming pool provides hours of entertainment for all ages. Well planned and easily maintained gardens designed by Robert Watson feature Feijoa hedges, Silver Birches, Pin Oaks, Alders, Weeping Elm as well as plentiful fruit trees and raised vegetable beds to ensure you and your family are never without fresh produce.

Other benefits of the property include automatic irrigation system with pop up sprinklers, security system and private guest wing for visiting family and friends. Numerous useful buildings (including a 12m x 9m shed), office space and outbuildings cater for the 'handy man' of the family and allow plenty of storage for boats, cars and other toys, or even the opportunity to run a business from home.

The stunning Brinkburn garden is the perfect place to entertain and again played host to 400 people at the 2018 Garden Marlborough Cocktail Party.

Well thought out and planned over many years; properties like this don't come up often. Don't miss this opportunity.
