You may not be able to travel to Tuscany or Bordeaux at present, but here's a touch of the European countryside. Make no mistake, this is a magnificent estate! Priced at just over the $3m mark, it won't be on the market for long. Standout features include: First of all, 20 acres of prime land, just 7 minutes' drive from popular Matakana. This is gentle, rolling, north-facing countryside, a portion of which is planted with grapevines, and currently being used to produce boutique wine. There are 8 large, easy-care, fully fenced paddocks, ideal for grazing cattle. The home itself will leave you breathless. It's big: with multiple living and alfresco areas, a wood burner fireplace, inviting kitchen, 3 luxurious bedrooms (all with ensuites). Artfully designed and skilfully constructed to capture the sense of light, space and easy charm you'll see reflected in the landscape. It's private too: so much so, you can slip into the spa pool at the end of the day, gaze out over the vines, appreciating the beauty, peace and solitude that surrounds you. Other highlights include - The Barn, a gorgeous, modern classic farm building that's separated from the main house, featuring high stud, and charming outdoor pergola that leads you to an awesome pizza oven!. The farm shed, which is lovely and large, and currently being used for all the practical bits including extra garaging. Oh, and did we mention the lake? Your own piece of park-like paradise, where you can stroll around happily, without the endless noise, pollution, and crowds of the city. This impressive property is a must view for those looking for a haven - and searching out the freedom of country life (without moving too far from the action; Auckland CBD is just 40 minutes away approx).
