Using a French provincial theme, Don Nelson Architecture set about initially designing a separate guest house and a large country residence concurrently for the original owners. Set against a backdrop of lush countryside with wide terraces the extensive glazing permits panoramic vistas. A portico front entry includes wrought iron gates and large timber doors that open to reveal light airy living spaces. On arrival, the foyer has a sense of grandeur leading to the formal dining and thorough to the lounge. The grandeur is continued throughout the interior and enhanced by details such as tiled floors, and wrought iron balustrades. A relaxed and ambient French country lifestyle is on offer at this spacious home of approximately 400 square metres. In the kitchen, large bi-fold windows provide a convenient connection with the alfresco dining area, designed with wooden cabinetry, granite surfaces, and a central island connecting to the informal family lounge. The stunning pool and outdoor entertainment area are drenched in sunshine. The separate guest house of approximately 80 square metres offers an exceptional opportunity for extended families or as guest accommodation, connected to the main residence via a covered pavilion providing easy access to the house. Both the main house and the separate guest house are well-appointed, each offering double garaging and ample storage.
There is no doubt that new energy and vision will bring this incredible home back to its former glory. Close by is the main hubs of Silverdale and Albany, with an easy drive to the Coastal communities of Orewa and the Hibiscus Coast and only 40 minutes north of Auckland CBD. Take advantage of this enchanting lifestyle opportunity and be truly inspired by the countryside ambiance of this exceptional property on offer in beautiful New Zealand.
