Historic Kauri Villa Lifestyle

Villa lovers will be in heaven! Come and be impressed with this 1890’s Kauri Villa oozing with original features, well maintained by caring owners over its lifetime. Soak up a country vista with all day sun.

The homestead was built in two stages by an early settler family, firstly with 3 bedrooms, then an extension of an additional 3 bedrooms were added not too much later as the family grew. One of the 6 bedrooms has since been converted to a bathroom with 4-claw bath, along with extensions to kitchen and dining area. Standout character kauri flooring, feature wood panelling, high stud ceilings and many fireplaces. The HRV system allows for warm comfortable living. Your hot water is heated electrically and via Wetback system from the Woodburner and lounge fireplace.

Wander around the gardens, discover plenty of outbuildings, including ex-maid’s quarters with toilet, old safe/pantry room, workshop, lockable garaging, undercover parking and the heritage carshed. The old woolshed across the way adds a rustic charm with much potential.

Enjoy being surrounded by your farm animals as they circulate around the paddocks on 5.3 Ha (approx 13 acres). For horse enthusiasts, there’s a dressage area and horse jumps. Stock water tank gravity fed to troughs. Natural water source from spring dams and seasonal streams. Plenty of shade trees and patches of native bush.

Located a few minutes from Paparoa village on the Kaipara Harbour, with local boat ramp at Pahi. Travel from Auckland is 1.5 hrs drive. Reasonable driving distance to choice of local beaches on West and East coasts.

The present owners have enjoyed a memorable 40 years and it’s time for new owners to make it theirs.
