Live life ranch-style in Ramarama
Words are not enough to describe a property as big and breathtaking as this rural retreat located five minutes from the southern motorway in sun-drenched Franklin.
A sprawling six-bedroom character home, 129 Ramarama Rd offers privacy, exclusivity and grandstand views of the great outdoors. Families with children should fit right in for the home is walking distance to the desirable Ramarama School and popular Drury Village amenities.
You’ll love the feel of this ranch-style property set on five acres of lush terrain. Hard to believe that such sylvan bliss is to be found less than an hour from downtown Auckland.
The house is set at the end of a winding driveway that has a lush canopy all the way. The home itself has a commanding view of the surroundings; it has been planned for easy and refi ned country living but with top city amenities – a home that’s both practical and elegant. There’s a spacious guest bedroom with a study nook, walk-in wardrobe and a big picture window. There’s another bedroom right next to it that has good views of the lush paddock out front.
The family room is spacious and comes with large windows that give commanding views of the front of the property.
The master bedroom has a large en suite, wardrobes, and your own private deck from which you can step on to the lawns or the pool area, with a nice rural outlook.
There are three other bedrooms, one of them with a sunny deck, and an elegant reading room with sarked wood ceiling; all served by a large family bathroom with spa bath.
The piece de resistance is right there in the middle of the house – an open plan galley kitchen and entertainer’s dining area. Pool’s cool: You can’t beat the view from this sunny spot.
From here french doors open out to the sprawling patio and inviting pebble-bottomed pool. Entertain outside in the fenced Infi nity pool area or inside with a kitchen that’s a sleek showpiece of contemporary design.
Add to this a near new 12x9m, threebay shed (park your big boy toys here) plus 11x7m barn-style garage with loft, and you have a property that is appealing and versatile.
