Property Description

Iconic Brookby Villa set a amongst park-like grounds
Iconic 19th century, colonial villa set amongst park-like grounds and offering huge opportunity for equestrians, with Papatoetoe Pony Club's world-class facilities bordering the western boundary. A tree-lined driveway reveals the 470sqm north-facing home. Exquisite gardens and magnificent lawns are framed by Oaks, Liquidambar, Magnolia and stands of Kahikatea trees. The idyllic lily pond with its jetty enhances this enchanting setting.

Originally built in St Heliers in the 1880s, the stately home was relocated to its current position in 1996. It has made a remarkable transition from a historic homestead to a contemporary residence retaining its old-world charm through character features such as the stunning pressed ceiling in the formal lounge, crystal chandeliers in the formal lounge, dining and in the gracious panelled ballroom. There are five generously sized bedrooms all with large windows that let the sun stream in; three with ensuite bathrooms. The master enjoys a large walk-in wardrobe and views over the gardens to the countryside beyond. A farmhouse-style kitchen, featuring engineered stone benchtops, opens onto the patio with views across the lawns towards the paddocks, as do all north-facing rooms.
Two open fires, a wood burner, and heat pumps infuse warmth throughout. The property offers a mix of terrain. Level lawns flow to rolling country progressing to hill paddocks, all fenced for horses or stock. A large barn offers multiple opportunities, including workshop space, storage for a boat or farm implements, and will also be simple to set up ten loose boxes for horses via existing post holes.
Enjoy the use of the club's all-weather arenas, cross-country course and hacking facilities - not to mention the many coaching opportunities and shows on their calendar. Horse ownership has never been so easy with none of the cost or time required to build or maintain these facilities.

Grand and private, unbeatable rural living.
