Set well off the road down a tar sealed driveway this private cedar home with bush views to Rangitoto ticks so many boxes for those who want to live close to Albany but with all the benefits of country living.
The exterior of cedar and copper guttering is complemented inside by double height atrium style windows that fill the living rooms with sunlight and bounce off the matai floors.
A large open plan living space incorporates a spacious lounge with wood burner, dining, and sitting area off the newly renovated white and stainless steel kitchen that has been finished in style with moulded stainless butlers sink, induction cook top and quality finishing.
Additionally there is a separate lounge/rumpus that has full AV/HDMI cabling, sound proofing, a reverse cycle heat pump and adjacent powder room.
The master suite has a beautifully appointed en-suite and dressing room and there are 4 more bedrooms with 2 additional bathrooms, plus an office and an artist's loft with velux skylights.
Many of the rooms flow easily to the extensive decking which overlooks the solar heated concrete pool and the mature landscaped gardens.
There are 4 paddocks with post and rail fencing by the house, a stable, yard, reticulated troughs and metal area for winter months.
Additionally there is a huge 140m2 ficus covered barn with an automatic door set away from the house for the toys and with an additional outside parking area.
To add to the all inclusive package this home has to offer, there are three water tanks and a vast range of mature fruit trees and a vege patch.
This home will not last and could be yours for summer!
