Italian inspired home, immaculate avocado orchard
The cleverly conceived home above a conscientiously cared for orchard enjoys beautiful views to the coast.
The tiered formal grounds and tiled patio overlooking the pool convey a sense of Italian country home further cemented by the plaster over brick exterior and Italian tiled roof, the box hedging, conifer trees and easy-care ground cover. The spacious interior has living rooms linked by cavity sliders to close for quiet retreat, open for flow during social gatherings, all facing covered or open terrace. The central staircase is a strong feature linking bedrooms above which form two zones, the massive master suite and bathroom, dressing room plus an office/extra bedroom and a separate family wing of two bedrooms and bathroom. Copious storage includes the walk-in linen cupboard and space under the stairs, practical places a third bathroom off the double garage and a small bedroom or study tucked at the rear of the home. Gas heated and with security system and central vac this home provides a great lifestyle.
The home and its grounds occupy the upper 'triangle' of this 5.6146-hectare property of which approximately four hectares is orchard sloping very gently below.
The 320 (approx.) mature Hass trees (planted between 2000 and 2004), some 30 young ones and 20 pollinators convey a well husbanded orchard with well-spaced, well pruned trees. A few bins still to pick, the set promising a good harvest 100 bins plus for next season.
There's an open three-bay shed with power at the top of the orchard and a bit of extra income, or children's pocket money, in the 60 lime trees lined up along the rear boundary. High shelter and a deer fence protect a property that delivers near perfection and plenty to keep you productively occupied here between the coast and the Kaimai Ranges; within easy proximity of Katikati and Tauranga.
