Country Sophistication – Equestrian Lifestyle 

Stunning architect-designed home with superior equestrian facilities plus second dwelling makes this well-developed 16.95ha property with easy access to the motorway an irresistible lifestyle choice. First time on the market and a property of this rare caliber won’t last long!

With a premium Ramarama location and grandstand position with north-facing sweeping views, this 404m2 four bedroom David McBride-designed home offers sophisticated country living with a quiet elegance. This contemporary family home has a warm, natural aesthetic featuring Bombay bluestone plinths and cedar joinery – a city side sanctuary to enjoy a flexible family lifestyle with horses.

Quality craftsmanship and stylish appeal resonate through this beautifully presented home. The front entrance through tall cedar doors leads into a spacious foyer designed to pull your gaze forward through to the formal lounge and out to the magnificent views beyond. With a feature cathedral ceiling, contemporary open fireplace and extensive glazing, relax here and soak up the stunning views out to Auckland City, Manukau Heads, Waitakeres and Rangitoto.

To the right of the entrance foyer is a WC/powder room and access through to the open plan kitchen/family/living with bifolding doors out to the sunny entertaining area with landscaped gardens and lawns. A service wing with Butler’s pantry, laundry and WC leads out to lined triple car garaging with a comprehensive workshop space.

The bedroom wing lies to the left of the entrance with a bathroom and four double bedrooms, including the master suite with walk-in-wardrobe and ensuite with contemporary freestanding bath looking out to views over the property. Thoughtfully developed over the years, the landscaping includes planted embankments, a rockery with walkways and a pottager vege garden.

Designed specifically for horse agistment and riding, the 200m² stable complex is just four years old and built for premium functionality, style and quality with convenient circular access for trucks and floats. Wash down facilities include hot and cold water, the feed and tack room includes a kitchenette, an implement room offers further storage options and the six stables even offer views for the horses! 12 large post and wire paddocks and three smaller paddocks with electric fencing offer varied grazing options for horses or stock. The extensive gravel race system leads by a full-size 65x20m sand-shell dressage arena and well-planted wetlands and ponds – poetic trails to roam and ride.

A substantial minor dwelling was originally constructed to combine accommodation and stables and includes a double garage with high stud and six lockers for horse gear. The dwelling includes two bedrooms, living and bathroom at ground level and a 42m² mezzanine. With a cute sunny courtyard and garden, it’s ideal for extended family or an additional income.

Beautifully finished with a striking first impression, this superior contemporary lifestyle property with views is ideal for those with equestrian or agistment interests and is so close to the Southern Motorway and ready to benefit from the Drury South development.
