Have you al­ways dreamed of set­ting up a home busi­ness that al­lows you to have any life­style you want? Your op­por­tu­nity awaits with this 10 acre home and in­come plot at 172 Glen­brook Road, Karaka.

The property is ideal for some­one in­ter­ested in hor­ti­cul­ture pro­duc­tion with its 3200 square me­tre Red­path twin skin green house, which is cur­rently used to grow cym­bid­ium orchids for an ex­port busi­ness run by the cur­rent own­ers. Ac­com­pa­ny­ing the green house is a 48 square me­tre pack­ing shed, which has toi­let fa­cil­i­ties for staff. An ir­ri­ga­tion reser­voir di­rectly be­hind the green­house sup­plies all the rain­wa­ter needed to main­tain its plant life.

The re­main­ing land is made up of five flat to rolling easy care pad­docks, per­fect for graz­ing cat­tle, sheep or horses. The property also has an ar­ray of self suf­fi­cient fruit trees which pro­vide a sea­sonal sup­ply of av­o­cado, fei­joa, olives, pear, per­sim­mon and macadamias.

The house it­self is a four bed­room GJ Gard­ner de­sign, built nine years ago. Its fam­ily lounge was pur­pose built to make the most of the north fac­ing sun and views. Through dou­ble ranch slid­ers, home own­ers have un­lim­ited views of its five easy care pad­docks and the neigh­bour­ing farm­land. There is also a wood fire­place which pro­vides warmth dur­ing win­ter.

At­tached to the lounge is a mod­ern de­signer kitchen, din­ing and seat­ing area, great for fam­ily in­ter­ac­tion or en­ter­tain­ing. This can be closed off from the fam­ily lounge via slid­ing doors if sep­a­rate liv­ing is de­sired.

The bed­rooms quar­ters are sit­u­ated at the sunny spots of the house and all are ser­viced by a fam­ily bath­room with a bath and shower combo and sep­a­rate toi­let.

All four bed­rooms are full dou­bles and a bonus box room would also be suit­able for a home of­fice. You will find the mas­ter bed­room in a lovely part of the house, fea­tur­ing its own full size bath­room and walk in wardrobe. The best part about this fab­u­lous room is its sep­a­rate en­trance to the out­doors mean­ing you get to wake up to gor­geous coun­try views ev­ery morn­ing.

For those who like to put their own stamp on a new home, the neu­tral theme through­out will be the per­fect blank can­vas to add your per­sonal touches.

In­ter­nal garag­ing for three ve­hi­cles is ac­ces­si­ble via the sep­a­rate util­ity room, plus there is a wide space for additional park­ing right out­side the front door.

This rare property is priced to sell at $1,850,000 and is mar­keted by Ray White, Pa­pakura.
