Renovated Farmhouse with Harbour Views
This north-east facing renovated farmhouse (circa 1947) overlooks the inner
Kaipara Harbour, and sits on 22 acres including covenanted native bush with many Kauri trees and a permanent spring-fed stream. It is quiet, private, and accessed by a long tree lined driveway, from a quiet country road.
Views are of rolling countryside to the harbour, with a wide and ever-changing expanse of sky.
This 208sqm home was extensively renovated, and modernised in 2012. This included a new iron roof and surround deck (116 m2) with verandah.
There are three large bedrooms – main (4500x5500m) with a large ensuite and dump shower with wet area. All have built in wardrobes. There is a second bathroom and separate laundry. The main bedroom opens onto the deck, with a spa.
A new kitchen, large dining and lounge room with firebox, combine to make this an open plan living area with French doors opening on to decks. Floorboards are of native Matai and Kahikatea.
A large office (3.5 x 5.5m), with fast internet connection, adjoins a similar size room which is currently used for wine making with a separate and insulated wine storage room attached.
The house is insulated throughout and has a heat transfer system. Cook top and hot water are gas (LPG delivered)
The shed/garage measures 16m. x 6m. has a new concrete floor and roller doors.
There’s also a garden shed and a wood shed.
Rain water storage is approximately 70,000 litres in two tanks. Spring water can be provided by way of conduits in place and pumped to a holding tank.
Native trees and birds, fruit trees (incl. citrus and olives) make this a pleasant space with established gardens of organic soil, and a large flat area near the house, which would be perfect for a swimming pool, tennis court or just a game of cricket.
School bus at gate for Matakohe primary school. Local high schools are Otamatea and Dargaville.
It's a fifteen minute drive from Paparoa village and a two hour drive from Auckland to this peaceful haven.
