Property descriptionidyllic country lifestyle close to urban conveniences
Vendors are committed to moving, reluctantly leaving their beloved Indonesian-inspired home they built on two acres of a hilly paddock in 1981. Positioned in the established suburb zoned under Countryside Transition of Residential Large Lot, sits this uniquely designed residence. When our vendors undertook the task to build their dream home, they focused on providing a family home that encompasses space, comfort, privacy and in tune with the natural surroundings of the immediate area. Their overseas living experience did play a part initially on their path to creating a garden uniquely of their own. In fact, it was two family weddings that played the major part - returning to attend her sister's wedding prompted the purchase of the plot of land, and later fulfilling their daughter's dream to get married in her "Garden of Eden". Our vendors had two years to transform the garden into her dream wedding day.From then on, the garden evolved over the years, albeit not that burst of activity before the wedding due to their work commitments. Enjoy the leisurely stroll on the walkway through the bush and numerous garden projects on display by renowned landscaper Jonathan Bowman, sculptures by impressive artists James Wright, Terry Stringer, Jeff Thomson, Graeme Hitchcock and Jenny McLeod. Being an engineer, our vendor himself is accomplished at woodwork and carving as evident from his personal pieces on display. His wife is just as talented, she is a glass artist with her workpieces on display as well. Art is a dramatic feature of this garden that has been created and developed proudly by the vendors. Seeing is believing. You will be amazed too!Vendors have undertaken some enhancements including the kitchen/pantry/laundry area, conversion of one of the bedrooms into a study/reading area, conversion of the study into a large walk-in wardrobe and combining the dressing room and a bathroom into a spacious ensuite.Essentially this uniquely shaped dwelling comprises four equal sized hexagons with three of them grouped together making the main residence and a standalone hexagon forming the garage for two vehicles and workshop space. This home with a total floor area of approximately 197 square meters, features three bedrooms, an ensuite, a separate toilet, the main bathroom, a study/reading area, dining area, formal lounge, and a bar area ideal for entertaining family and guests. Off the family, area is the North-facing sheltered alfresco outdoor which provides an additional option for entertaining on any scale, from intimate dinners to cocktail parties.This enviable magnificent tranquil setting is surrounded by extensive plantings of native bush attracting a myriad of bird life, handy to excellent schools and recreational facilities in Barry Curtis Park and just a short drive to Botany Town Centre and Manukau Shopping Centre with its excellent range of shops and community amenities. Also close by is the ever-popular Point View Reserve walking tracks that provide another option to satisfy your leisure activity.The opportunity is here - retain the country lifestyle or explore the subdivision potential. Could there be a more idyllic setting and yet so close to all urban conveniences? Come and see for yourself.
