Two For The Money
This practical gently contoured 5-hectare block has two very pleasant homes on it, each exceeding expectations. The property is an ideal horse habitat with lots of clover and includes a half-round barn which has been converted to stables, a tack room in the 'ostrich pen', and plenty of room to create an arena. The land is divided into 9 paddocks, with good races and approximately 10 acres of excellent grazing with a stream along the boundary. The main house is a private, spacious Lockwood home built in 1985 with beautiful cathedral ceilings. It has three bedrooms, an office, two living rooms, two bathrooms and has been regularly updated and renovated by its owners. The cosy atmosphere generated by the combination of timber lining and lots of airy space lends elegance to this home and would suit a family or a work-from-home situation. The land around this home includes a shed with power which was previously used as a wood-working shed. An older ostrich shelter now stores the tractor, but the options are wide open. A separate driveway ensures independence, and mature plantings maintain the privacy of this easy-care portion of the block. The minor dwelling is a good-sized private one-bedroom 65m2 dwelling with a whopping 75m2 garage attached. Built in 2000 it is Insulclad with wide verandas. A generous layout makes it an excellent rental proposition or home for extended family. This home also has its own driveway and turning circle, and privacy assured by well-established plantings. The owners have loved this property which is evident in the thought and work that has gone into making it easy-access, easy-care, and easy-use. The golf course is literally just one property along, so you'll be able to improve your handicap every weekend. Opportunities such as this block are rare in the market so come and look because you really have to feel it to appreciate quite what is on offer. Auckland CBD is 45 minutes' away outside of rush hour and three major shopping centres are within half an hour's reach.
