Noth­ing short of stun­ning in the south

Southern Real Estate Guide - - Profile -

It’s not ev­ery day that a land­mark prop­erty like this comes un­der the ham­mer! Se­cluded be­hind high brick walls and dou­ble wrought­iron gates in exclusive Wat­tle Downs, this pic­turesque villa-style res­i­dence is be­ing sold (re­luc­tantly) by the own­ers who have moved to Eng­land.

For those who trea­sure the ar­chi­tec­tural style of a by­gone era but want the prac­ti­cal­ity of mod­ern liv­ing, 84 Wat­tle Farm Road is the per­fect fi nd. Add in an ex­cel­lent neigh­bour­hood, prox­im­ity to re­serves, lake, walk­ways, golf course, mo­tor­way, plus top-notch school­ing, and you have what can only be de­scribed as an ob­ject of de­sire.

Dis­play­ing time­less style, the two-level home built on 650 square me­tres pro­vides a top notch fam­ily en­vi­ron­ment around three bed­rooms and a mas­sive lounge.

From the open-plan liv­ing area, French doors open out into the wrap-around ve­ran­dah that leads to out­door en­ter­tain­ment, com­plete with fea­ture fire­place. Ma­ture trees ring the front of the house, af­ford­ing pri­vacy and shade. The pro­fes­sion­ally land­scaped English gar­den, with its man­i­cured hedges, adds an ex­tra touch of class.

Inside, soar­ing ceil­ings and pol­ished wooden floors add to the char­ac­ter of this de­light­ful cot­tage. What re­ally sets this home apart is the lib­eral use of wood. You’ll find warm wood ev­ery­where - from the high sarked ceil­ing in the ul­tra-mod­ern kitchen to the beamed ceil­ing in the sunny lounge; and from the bath­rooms and loos to the laun­dry nook.

From the lounge, walk up the quaint wooden stair­case. Up­stairs there are two spa­cious and sunny bed­rooms with steepled ceil­ings, the mas­ter hav­ing large dou­ble wardrobes. Both bed­rooms have ex­cel­lent street views and are well po­si­tioned for light.

Out back, there’s a to­tally private back­yard ringed by camel­lia hedges. There’s a spa room, a big­gish tool shed, and plenty of space where you and the fam­ily can soak up the sun!

The home is fully alarmed but in this se­cure neigh­bour­hood, it re­ally doesn’t mat- ter! A dou­ble car port and store room at the end of a cob­ble­stone drive­way com­plete the pic­ture.

Open home Satur­day and Sun­day 2pm-2.45pm. Auc­tion on site (un­less prior sold), 2pm Satur­day, June 7.

The home is brought to you by Tina Yates and Paul Yates of Remax Ma­nurewa ( Your Re­alty Ltd). Freep­hone the Yates Team on 0800 300 324 (Tina) or 0800 300 325 (Paul).
