Designed by noted New Zealand architect Roger Walker, this idyllic home has a rich pedigree. The current owners even decided to buy their treasured home before they reached the front door.

Located on an endearing four-hectare spot, this picture-perfect home retains its original private and sunny aspect, with the views across the valley and stream. It’s stayed relevant through the years with enhancements by subsequent owners, and a 21st-century makeover has opened up the larger of the two living spaces.

Recent modifications have transformed the dining, lounge and kitchen areas into sun-infused living spaces, while keeping the signature Walker cathedral ceilings and exposed rafters. The new kitchen features a walk-in pantry and it’s a pleasure to throw open the living room doors to the north-facing deck.

The saltwater swimming pool and spa are bliss, while a multitude of shed options (including two measuring 13.5 x 9 metres & 9 x 9 metres respectively) provide flexibility to satisfy your needs.

A veggie garden and no less than 30 fruit trees complete this picture-perfect paradise.

A meandering drive from the road creates a pleasing boundary between home and civilisation, yet this exceptional property is only 2.4km from the city boundary.

The lifestyle here is unrivalled, whether you’re a growing family, retiring farmer or relocating to Taranaki.
