About this listing
Circa 1970's: This large, spacious and sunny family home sitting on a private 3½ acres will take you back to a time when a huge farmhouse kitchen, large lounge, rumpus room accessed via a spiral staircase from inside or it's own entrance from outside, a man-cave and a swimming pool were all essential icons of family living. There's ample space for a whole family to live comfortably and enjoy as is, and plenty of scope to bring it into today's world and create your own ideal homestead. With some adaptation and Council approval it might possibly provide two living arrangements. The mature trees and plantings attract birds and wildlife, there's a small pond for the local frogs, lots of space for gardens, orchard, veg & herb beds, play areas for free-range kids, pets and chickens, and a few paddocks for grazing animals to complete the picture for family Lifestyle-living. The location is almost equidistant from Wainui, Puhoi and Makarau, though it's more associated with Wainui as it lies at the end of Monowai Road/Upper Waiwera Road. Wainui and Orewa School buses stop at the gate.
