When the owners of this property envisaged building their dream home they wanted to combine the best of classic villa features with the comforts of a modern home. Set on ten acres against the stunning backdrop of Mount Pirongia, "Dunvegan" is a successful melding of classic proportions, good taste and comfort.
Approached down a drive lined with fruit trees, the house sits just below the brow of a hill ensuring privacy. Enter through majestic cedar front doors and your eyes are drawn up the sweeping rimu stair case to a stunning chandelier. To your left through French doors the welcoming family room opens out and incorporates a dining area, an area for relaxing in front of the wood burner and the kitchen, complete with rimu cabinetry, gas hob and granite benchtops. This large space opens at either end with French doors, one set leads invitingly out to the pool. Back across the central hall, more French doors lead into the formal lounge which also incorporates space for formal dining. Here, two sets of French doors entice you out into the gardens. Still on the ground floor there is a powder room and office. Upstairs four double bedrooms, two with ensuite bathrooms and walk in wardrobes, all offer stunning views of the surrounding countryside with French doors again encouraging you out onto the wide verandas to take in the views.
Handy to the house is a triple garage which incorporates a bathroom, ideal for those using the pool, plus a utility or laundry room. There is also a two bay implement shed and wood shed. Ideally set up for those seeking a lifestyle property with room for animals, the ten acres are divided into six large paddocks plus three smaller ones.
This home successfully incorporates the best of traditional villa features such as beautiful rimu joinery, wrap-around verandas and high studs with the modern conveniences of a near new home. Located only 4 kms from Pirongia, here is a peaceful rural lifestyle.
