- About this property
Secluded Waikanae RetreatProperty ID PPU20494Slip through the electronic gates where the long driveway will sequester you away from the demands of the city, to a haven so private no one will know you are there.
Centred within 21.4 acres of sweeping grounds with an impressive array of mature specimen trees and delightful ornamental ponds. The home invites you inward with its elegant simplicity and focused design, ensuring energy efficient comfort, whilst evoking a strong sense of separation from daily life and its demands.
The generous floor plan arranges itself around a central courtyard, accessed from all wings by double glazed bi-folding doors, increasing your living spaces and flooding the entire home with natural light. The open plan living kitchen and dining area share the warmth of timber, polished floors and the tasteful neutral tones evident throughout. Even warmth is provided by a superb wood fire that additionally heats European style radiators in the other wing.
Cavernous four car garaging provides just that - whilst also allowing for an easy conversion to four bedrooms, additional living, an office, or more.
Access around the property is easy, with varying species of trees creating separate areas to stroll through. There is a fruiting orchard, vegetable garden, bore irrigation and a large storage shed.
The current owners have spared little expense in their quest to create a true haven within the bounds of total privacy and an easy commute to the city.
