Peace, pri­vacy and an abun­dance of space com­bine at 156 Sch­lae­fer Rd in Pukekohe, a farm­let with plenty to of­fer.

Set at the end of a no exit road, Hel­ve­tia Downs is per­fect for those who are look­ing to es­cape the grind of the city for a qui­eter, more re­laxed pace of life. Lo­ca­tion, pri­vacy, views, space, sun and na­tive bush – you name it this, prop­erty has it in abun­dance.

Pukekohe is only a short drive away and you’re in rea­son­able com­mut­ing dis­tance through beau­ti­ful coun­try­side on ex­cel­lent roads, with the mo­tor­way at Drury just 10 min­utes away.

Span­ning 75 acres, this north-fac­ing prop­erty is set up for calf or horse rear­ing with a four-stand walk through cow­shed, barn with five loose boxes, hayshed, sand yard, lung­ing ring, 25 pad­docks and an Olympic sized arena. The 25 pad­docks are of ex­cel­lent con­tour and are cur­rently locked up for silage.

On the prop­erty you’ll also fi nd a vast ar­ray of beau­ti­ful trees, in­clud­ing a covenant of stun­ning na­tive bush – a par­adise for birds like the bell­bird, tui and wood pi­geon, as well a newly built dou­ble garage with a study.

Then there’s the stun­ning Tu­dor-style home set amid equally de­light­ful land­scaped gar­dens. Fea­tur­ing three bed­rooms and three liv­ing ar­eas this two-level home is both spa­cious and com­fort­able.

Down­stairs you’ll dis­cover two good-sized bed­rooms and two liv­ing ar­eas, one of which opens out onto a private deck. Th­ese rooms are served by a lovely bath­room with a rimu tim­ber fi nish and spa bath, shower and van­ity. There’s a sep­a­rate toi­let, and a sep­a­rate laun­dry.

An el­e­gant kauri ban­nis­ter takes you up­stairs to the main liv­ing ar­eas – a light-filled, sunny lounge com­plete with a wood­burner, spa­cious din­ing room with a bay win­dow and smart and stylish kitchen fea­tur­ing all the mod cons in­clud­ing a Fisher and Paykel dou­ble dish­drawer, wall oven and elec­tric hob.

From the lounge a ranch­slider leads you to a large deck with mag­i­cal views stretch­ing over the na­tive bush and be­yond to Ran­gi­toto Is­land, One Tree Hill and the Sky Tower.

The mas­ter bed­room also en­joys th­ese pic­turesque views, as well as its bal­cony, en suite and his-and-hers wardrob­ing.

Whether you’re look­ing for a com­fort­able re­treat or a fam­ily want­ing a healthy lifestyle change, 156 Sch­laepfer Rd de­serves your im­me­di­ate at­ten­tion.

Presently the prop­erty is on one ti­tle, how­ever, there is po­ten­tial for a sec­ond ti­tle (sub­ject to coun­cil ap­proval).

It is for sale by ten­der, clos­ing Fri­day De­cem­ber 14 at 1pm. View by open home on Wed­nes­day De­cem­ber 5 from 11am-2pm or Thurs­day De­cem­ber 13 from 11am -2pm or by ap­point­ment.
