Sometimes finding the perfect property requires a little patience, especially in this tightly held area. Thankfully, the wait was worth it because 79 Takarau Gorge Road is something special.

Standing proud at the front of a manageable 5-hectare section (50,206 sqm) you will find a completely renovated 3 bedroom home (with ensuite), an extra guest house with its own bathroom and lounge PLUS a fully self-contained 1 bedroom cottage. In total, that’s 5 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, all on one level.

The mix of accommodation options will suit extended families or those looking to subsidise their income via Airbnb or renting out the cottage, which is nicely situated down the driveway to provide some level of privacy, while still being a short, flat walk from the main house.

Each living space is surrounded by extensive hardwood decking to provide a near-infinite number of spots to enjoy the sun or listen to the local wildlife. This is all topped off with a sheltered fire pit for those lazy summer evenings and a custom-built bushwalk for kids and visitors to explore. A network of fencing has also been installed to make this home child and pet-friendly.

Every structure is fully insulated and double-glazed with heat pumps and infinity hot water systems. No expense has been spared in the modernisation of this property.

The total floor area of all 3 buildings (main house / guest house / cottage) is estimated to be 263 sqm although this figure can not be guaranteed.

This home is a short 19-minute drive from Wellington Railway Station and a 10-minute drive to Johnsonville (off-peak) according to Google, providing you with a total daily escape into your own private sanctuary without sacrificing convenience.

I could keep writing, but by now you’ll be convinced that this property is simply one you must see before you buy. Come along to the open home or Sunday or text 0274286686 to arrange a private viewing.
