Free Range Family
With sweeping views across a pretty rolling hillside, this beautifully maintained and meticulously decorated light filled family residence offers the opportunity to remove your family from the suburban grind and transplant them to a rural paradise only a short drive from Helensville or the bustling lifestyle hub of Kumeu.
Set on approximately four gently contoured north-facing acres (more or less) apportioned across five well maintained paddocks, this lifestyle block provides all the grass necessary for a coterie of animals to delight the whole family. A couple of horses, one or two sheep, a few chickens and the ubiquitous cheery kiwi farm dog will be blissfully at home here.
As you make your way up the drive, through a grove of young trees that glide past to reveal a charming sunkissed residence and attractive outbuildings, a sense of complete peace prevails. A classic design, this home screams 'country' with cosy board and batten cladding cocooning a residence firmly focused on drawing living out to the countryside.
The open plan kitchen, lounge, and dining room are bathed with light from the skylights above, and form the hub of this carefully decorated home, spilling out to broad, gloriously elevated, decking. Like the bedrooms beyond, this space enjoys picture-postcard worthy views, and easily accommodates a huge family farm-style dining table alongside the well-appointed kitchen. Discerning decor choices create a fabulous sense of ease and flow through the house, and a totally peaceful ambiance with the bedrooms and bathrooms tucked neatly up the other end, facilitating entertaining with small children.
Ancillary buildings include a large garage, currently perfumed with the scent of fresh hay, spilling into the bonus additional flexible space to one side, ideal as a home office (due to the insulation) or as a casual rumpus room. Double bay stables cleverly built on skids to provide maximum flexibility beckon the kids to pick some new pets, and a purpose-built hay shed - also moveable - provides their feed in a nostalgically cute home.
