Equine lifestyle - ready to move in and enjoy
This superb 3.87 hectare (more or less) property in Whakamarama lies centrally between Bethlehem and Katikati and has been specifically planned for an equestrian lifestyle. With easy contour the 14 paddocks and well planned layout offers a diverse range of options for rural living. Edged by a lovely stream that provides an endless supply of water for the farm, the property faces the sun and offers a charming rural outlook, enabling most of the property to be viewed from the expansive decking around the home. A fully fenced, post and railed 40x60 pumice/sand arena can be viewed from the home's deck and is complimented by a large American barn comprising two stables, tie up area, hay room, tack room and concreted wash bay. The barn also includes a huge workshop/storage area that offers many options - be it for a home based business, workshop space plus parking for the horse truck/float or the boat? From the barn there are several easy contoured paddocks planned specifically for the safety of horses. The quaint three bedroom, open-plan home is well positioned to capture all day sun and sits on a rise giving a wonderful perspective of the property. With double glazed windows, a log burner provides heating. There is also an enclosed lobby for storing firewood, and all those boots and outdoor clothes that comes with rural living. Wooden decking surrounds two sides of the home with a covered nook for having breakfast in the sun, or a barbeque on the deck. This property has been carefully tended and well maintained and has been home to the current vendor for the past 13 years. Being only two minutes from the Whakamarama Primary School and community hall, a short walk to the beautiful native bush tracks and swimming hole at Puketoki Reserve and a five minute drive to the local dairy, takeaway shop, rural machinery centre, service station this property provides a fantastic lifestyle perfect for families wanting to live their rural dream.
