What a lifestyle charmer!
This wonderfully unique straw bale home is situated on 2.4 hectares in popular Waipapa and just ten minutes from Kerikeri township. Our vendors fell in love with the four bedroom property from overseas, completely smitten by its strong architectural personality and picturesque country setting. They will miss its comfortable, easy living footprint and strong insulating qualities. The children have grown up with a sense of freedom to roam across the site, enjoying the swimming holes in the river and the walking tracks on the Te Araroa trail, shouldering the property.
Over two levels, the ground floor hosts an open plan kitchen, dining and living area and is very much the heart of the home. Gorgeous timber features add a welcoming, warm ambience including french style doors, timber joinery, exposed beams and hardwood flooring. An open fire heats the home very quickly, while the straw bale construction conveniently traps the warmth. Soft cornered plaster walls add to the style and character, and again, the straw bale means the interior stays cool and breathes in the warmer months. As the sun spreads across this downstairs area it plays a light show of depth and detail dancing over the textured plastered walls. Decking overlooks park like grounds and lush, easy care gardens. A master bedroom with ensuite and a walk-in wardrobe is also found on this level as well as a family bathroom.
The top level of the house is weatherboard and hosts three double bedrooms and a large open plan landing, currently set up as an office space it might suit your family to use it as a kids lounge and media room.
Situated close to the commercial centre of Waipapa opens a variety of possible uses for the property. Commercial ideas or otherwise, this truly is the complete package of lifestyle and location, with a lovely family home to match. For the full info pack, call David today.
