Hidden Prospect

This elegant fully-renovated home is traditional in style and blends English and Kiwi country ambience. Set amid over 5,600m² of landscaped gardens with verdant lawns, 'old world' roses, fruit trees and specimen trees and shrubs, it's easy to believe you're in paradise! However, the options for you to work from home, care for a relative with limited mobility, or provide B&B are all viable possibilities here.
The home's lovely timber joinery is complemented by tiled floors and neutral décor. The rooms are generously proportioned and comprise a well-appointed farmhouse kitchen and an open-plan living area, flowing into the delightful sun room. For sultry summer days you can throw open the doors and entertain al fresco in the sun, cooking on the patio's barbeque or pizza oven. In winter relax with your guests after dinner by a roaring fire.
The floor-plan of this residence is very versatile. On the ground floor, in addition to the living areas there's a mudroom/utility, a bathroom with a claw foot bath, a separate toilet and a master bedroom and an office.
An elegant timber staircase leads up to the first floor, where there are three further double bedrooms, plus the family bathroom and again, these are all well presented.
Attached to the home is a two vehicle carport, plus there's a large shed/workshop, so there's ample space for vehicles and leisure equipment. Outside, beyond the garden is a lush paddock, ideal for the family pony.
The home's location is a perfect mix of getaway and convenience. The drive confers privacy and yet it's an easy drive or bike ride along the new cycleway to the quaint settlement of Pohara, or Takaka for supplies. With beautiful beaches and two national parks in the vicinity, along with boutique stores, art studios and galleries, this is a unique community-spirited region with wide appeal. So if you're seeking a place that possesses a feeling of natural harmony in which to live your best life, this is it.
