This absolutely stunning Alan Minty architecturally designed home is on the market for the very first time. You can easily understand why these owners have cherished and adored this home over the past 25 years and will be very sad to pass it to the new owners - but the time has come to downsize.
As you enter the driveway and through the enchanting mature gardens you want to pause and appreciate the brilliance of this design that awaits you. The chapel roof lines, brick exterior, floor to ceiling glass windows and the owner's favourite area - the private sunny pergola entertainment deck that flows out from both the formal lounge and the family room.
The proportions of the rooms give you many options for formal or casual living with both the formal lounge and family rooms able to open up to form one space for when you have guests, or for quieter times they become individual spaces. Both areas have fireplaces for cosy winter days.
The gourmet kitchen is located perfectly within the family room space and a casual dining area is situated within the floor to ceiling glass conservatory, perfect for day to day living. From here you can wander out to the back garden to pick your vegetables or fruit from a selection of various varieties.
Downstairs offers two double bedrooms, refurbished family bathroom, separate spacious walk-in laundry, internal double garaging, plus an additional vehicle door at the rear to access boat or trailer with inbuilt shed complex.
Upstairs you will find another bedroom, (or possible office, complete with stunning views). A very generous master with ensuite and walk-in wardrobe overlooking the beautiful gardens. Generous storage options are available throughout the two floors.
This is undeniably one of the most prestigious properties in the sought-after garden area located in the heart of Waikanae. Established for many years as a feature property on the popular Waikanae garden tour.
