This kauri cutie was built by Tanner and Margaret McKenzie way back in the 1860's and it still oozes charm and character, nestled in a beautiful valley with northerly aspect and bush views, so close to the famous Waipu village.
The cottage was tastefully refurbished in 2008, respecting its historical origins, with additions of a modern kitchen and dining area. The house was also completely re-wired and all scrim removed at this time.
The master bedroom is on the ground floor along with bathroom, separate laundry and an additional bedroom currently used as an office. Upstairs (via the secret stairway) there is a third bedroom and storage area in the attic which could be made into a fourth bedroom. There are Kauri floors and panelling throughout, with wooden joinery and French doors opening out onto wrap around decks for great indoor-outdoor flow. Winter warmth is provided by a heat pump in the kitchen/dining area which heats the house in just minutes.
The northern boundary of this 4.3Ha of mainly flat land runs along the banks of the Ahuroa River. The vendors currently graze horses and cattle and have constructed a new barn that is multifunctional and provides quality stabling for the horses and storage for hay. A second shed provides storage for wood and equipment. There is also a secure tackshed in close proximity to the stables for the avid equestrian enthusiast.
This property beckons a young family or couple who are seeking lifestyle living in privacy and seclusion, comfortable that Waipu Village and all its amenities are only 3km away. Ahuroa Road is a no-exit road maintained by the Council and is just 1km to SH1, 35km to Whangarei and 120km to Auckland.
The vendors have their eyes on a larger block and while reluctant to leave this piece of paradise they are ready to pass the baton onto the next caretakers of a special part of Waipu history.
