Situated at the end of a leafy cul de sac in Pahurehure, 10 Wilencote Place would not be out of place in an issue of English House & Garden. Its stately looks and glorious gardens make a blissful retreat from the outside world. Its Tudor style exterior has much to do with it, but it is the gardens that really complete the picture. An integral part of the 1067 square metre property, they are completely private, extremely well gated and fenced, and expertly planted. There are beautiful rose specimens and trees, a little citrus grove, spring flower beds, a vegie patch, a permanent barbecue fixture, patios for tables and sun umbrellas, and two garden sheds. In fact there are places to relax or entertain on three sides of the house - you can chase the sun or find a shady spot as you wish, while the kids have the most fabulous natural playground imaginable, including a treehouse. The home is approached by way of a tree-lined and well-paved driveway. A wide double carport and double garage with workshop and great storage above further screens the house from the street. The home has four bedrooms and three bathrooms, a huge rumpus and separate, spacious living and dining areas. The kitchen is huge, with everything the cook requires, including three pantry cupboards, lots of power points, great food prep areas, a breakfast bar, ceramic hob, rangehood, under-bench oven, dishwasher and water filter. The lounge is another room with space to spare, and built-in storage. The room accesses three sides of the garden, including a paved patio, a pergola-topped side terrace and the main outdoor area. For winter there’s a very efficient gas fire, but essentially this is a home that celebrates al fresco living! There are four bedrooms upstairs, including a wonderful master bedroom with triple wardrobing, an ensuite and views that stretch off towards the Clevedon hills. The other three bedrooms are served by a modernised family bathroom complete with Eurostyle shower, separate bath and new vanity. There’s also a handy mezzanine area in the wide hallway, perfect for a computer station or extra storage. The downstairs rumpus is situated in a separate wing from the main living areas. As there is a third bathroom of this hallway, it would make excellent guest accommodation when required. The rumpus also accesses the rear garden. With added features like a DVS system and full home security, this solid and spectacular home is one of the finest Pahurehure has to offer. It’s in the Central Primary and Rosehill College zone, and enjoys handy access to the Pahurehure shops, the township and the motorway. 10 Wilencote Place goes to auction on Tuesday December 11, on site at 6pm (unless sold beforehand).
