Southern Real Estate Guide - - Profile -

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.
