Far Away from The Maddening Crowd - Work From Home
865 TAKATU ROAD, TAWHARANUI PENINSULA
Inspiration for the enchanting interior was drawn from the vendors' talented daughter Alison, now based in London.
Now for sale below it's RV of $2.2M, this is an opportunity to invest in a majestic country home in a beautiful and stunning setting of ocean views and bush backdrops. A fabulous opportunity to escape city life.
Purchased initially as a semi-retirement permanent home and potential homestay business, the vendors could also see the potential as a holiday destination large enough for all the family and grandchildren to use as their special mecca to reunite with everyone. The vendors have 7 grandchildren of varying ages and wanted sufficient space and separation to keep adults, extended family and children engaged with each other in a fun-filled social environment for their yearly catchups, meet other friends who may be invited to stay, and just enjoy being together again after a long separation.
For the "fitter"individuals several adventure bush walks zig - zag throughout the property where new discoveries of rare wild bird life and fauna are the norm, along with amazing newly found campsites for the intrepid.
The essence of the home and spacious open plan design has been for relaxed, fun and sun filled social family gatherings. The kitchen area is huge (almost commercial) and with options of a two way real wood fire. Another feature of the house is the under-floor heating system which is heated from a wood-burning furnace (convertible to diesel-fired) throughout the lower level.
The 4 plus double bedrooms, 2 offices, library area and a separate bunkroom/playroom upstairs ensures there is no shortage of accommodation for everyone.
With adequate land for a helicopter pad, pool or a tennis court, and a separate massive secure American Styled barn shed a tourist business opportunity is also another a possibility.
Matakana Village is approximately 12 minutes drivetime, and 60 minutes drivetime from Auckland's CBD. With recent news of sealing funding priority for Takatu Road this is a great time to invest in this location.
Vendor's have purchased elsewhere...........time to move on!
