- About this property
Fabulous Homestead on Ten Acres in MaxwellProperty ID WAN27805Balance is an essential ingredient to a healthy life and a large old villa with ample charm on the outskirts of Whanganui is poised to deliver just that.
The 225-square metre four bedroom home at 80 Maxwell Station Road is on the cusp of two rural wards steeped in history with Kai Iwi Beach at Mowhanau just down the road in one direction and SH3 at Maxwell in the other.
The 10-acre (4.048ha) property is less than a 15-minute drive from Whanganui central offering a rural haven in which to recharge the batteries from the pressures of city life.
The villa is a stunning example of a bygone era where craftsmanship was taken to a different level. The four spacious bedrooms, the high 12-foot stud and native timber floors and ceilings treat the senses to a journey back in time.
The home was moved to the property 30 years ago and has since been partially restored, although the essentials in life are well catered for with massive living areas, spacious kitchen with gas hob cooking and the large bathroom are all in comfortable working order. Many of the original features have been retained.
Fully fitted with all the necessary internet connections, this is an ideal place to run a business from home.
The immediate district and fertile soils are well-known farming areas specifically chosen by the pioneering families of the mid-1800s. Not only is it sheep and cattle, dairy and horse country, it is also ideal for arable and horticultural production.
The 10-acre property is fenced off into four large main paddocks and two smaller ones, while the house block is a sizeable area planted in a wide variety of species, both native and exotic, including two types of producing banana trees.
The fertile pastures and fenced paddocks are ideal to run a few stock for a secondary income or to simply fill the family larder.
Secluded garden pathways have been groomed to provide walking tracks to several secret clearings within the exotic woodland.
