Enveloped in an intoxicating aura of rural seclusion, this charming grand villa is set among 4.8ha (more or less), and offers beautiful views of a stunning rural landscape, comprising outstretching farmland and the Tararua Ranges.
Renovated to a good standard, the use of natural timbers throughout creates an inviting atmosphere. A spacious hallway connects four generous bedrooms and two bathrooms to an expansive rimu kitchen and open-plan living areas. Multiple living spaces and a large dining area make this the perfect-sized home for all the family.
The sparkling in-ground pool provides welcome reprieve from the hot Wairarapa sun during the summer months. The wrap-around verandas keep the inside of the home cool and provide great shade for relaxing, entertaining and enjoying the scenery.
This home also offers a separate, self-contained guest bedroom and bathroom - great for when the family or friends come to stay, or for use as a home office. With this grand home, there are so many options.
The nearby Waiohine River is easily accessible by car, bike, horse or on foot - to take advantage of jetboating, fishing and swimming. The communities of both Carterton and Greytown are a short scenic drive away and commuting to work in Wellington is a breeze, with Matarawa train station on the doorstep.
If you are wanting to embrace the wholesomeness of country living while still being within striking distance of local amenities, primary and secondary schools, cafes and shops, then take a serious look at this enchanting property.
Historic lifestyle properties like this one rarely come on the market, so don't delay in finding out more.
