and fam­ily room - an ex­quis­ite space which fea­tures Pal­la­dian win­dows and an op­er­a­tional coal range stove. As you would ex­pect in a home of this qual­ity, the kitchen is sim­ply stun­ning. It en­joys all the mod cons, as well as plenty of sun­light.

Also on the lower level is a guest bed­room, bath­room and large for­mal lounge com­plete with open fire­place and ac­cess through French doors to one of the home’s shel­tered decks.

Al­fris­ton is home to many im­pres­sive prop­er­ties - but none more so than the exquisitely crafted villa at 1441 Al­fris­ton Road.

Ar­chi­tec­turally de­signed and set on 6.1 hectares of lush farm­land, this prop­erty is ideal for fam­i­lies who are look­ing for an el­e­gant home that is stylish and spa­cious.

Built in 1996, this clas­sic French coun­trystyle villa is splen­did in both pro­por­tion and aes­thetic ap­peal. No ex­pense was spared in its de­sign and you’ll be im­pressed by the taste­ful plas­ter and iron ex­te­rior, mag­nif­i­cent por­tico, grand en­trance way, high ceil­ings, pol­ished tim­ber floors and French doors and win­dows.

The large dou­ble doors in the en­trance­way and sweep­ing stair­case are from the old ASB Bank in Blen­heim, while the gor­geous rimu floor­boards were re­trieved from the old Waihi Post Of­fice.

On the lower level you’ll fi nd the open plan kitchen, din­ing lovely dou­ble bed­rooms in­clud­ing the spa­cious main bed­room with its walk-in wardrobe and large semi- en suite.

Such is the de­sign of this prop­erty that pic­turesque coun­try views are vis­i­ble from al­most ev­ery room.

As well as a num­ber of pad­docks which are cur­rently grazed by a neigh­bour, the prop­erty in­cludes a sub­stan­tial barn and yards, in ad- di­tion to be­ing zoned for sub­di­vi­sion in 2020.

For buy­ers over the $ 2 mil­lion mark, this prop­erty will ex­ceed your high­est ex­pec­ta­tions. It is proudly mar­keted by Peter Belcher of Har­veys Pa­pakura.
