Property descriptionThis is a property of magic; from the five-bedroom home on three levels to the rambling, romantic garden.And it's rare that such a property, created and furnished with love and imagination, surfaces on the Wanaka market.
The fact that it's the home of an interior designer - and avid collector of all things beautiful and interesting - is within the secret.
Built in the '90s, but completely refurbished by its current owner in 2015, the home is straw bale and features white-washed, beamed ceilings throughout.
The kitchen is true farm style, with a huge, central working wooden island. Wooden joinery is used throughout the home, again part of the charm. Older-style wooden doors add appeal.
It's a true home, full of space, light and comfort, with doors from the living space opening to the outdoor flagged north side of the home. Here there is a table and chairs for outside dining, an outdoor pizza oven and a shaded seating area - complete with iron chandelier - with a twisted grapevine and wisteria frame.
There are five bedrooms, four of them double, and charming bathrooms on each level, in traditional white with black and white flooring. There is also a loft, a perfect studio or play place, above the double carport.
Heating in the home is provided by a wood-burner in the living area plus a heat pump. Bedrooms have heating panels but these are rarely needed in this warm home.
The photos best tell the rest of this fairy tale.
