Seldom does the opportunity arise to purchase a desirable 2 hectare lifestyle property with two dwellings. Tucked away from the road within a mature garden setting and accommodating the largest of families there is not only a spacious five-bedroom home but also a contemporary three-bedroom cottage. Lovingly enhanced over the years, the main dwelling underwent significant upgrades in the mid-1980’s which included rewiring and a substantial northern extension. Furthermore, the vendors also carried out an extensive refurbishment on the cottage which was completely modernised just three years ago. A home of ample proportions, the main residence comprises various living areas including a kitchen, dining area, study and lounge, while the versatile fifth bedroom on the upper level is equally well suited as a hobby room or additional living zone. Allowing for the overflow of family or guests the three double bedroom cottage offers flexible living and accommodation options and a home theatre facility that is being sold with all existing equipment. Established plantings offer enduring privacy and amplifies the restful ambience. Outdoor living includes a sunny deck extending from the north-west side of the home, a greenhouse, vegetable garden, pond with a jetty, BBQ area with outdoor fireplace. Practical aspects of lifestyle living have been well catered for. Providing plenty of scope when it comes to external storage requirements are the double garage, a large store room, lean-to woodshed and a studio with an enclosed workshop. The property has underground three-phase power to the garage, house and cottage. Conveniently located midway between Hornby and Rolleston with improving city access with the completion of the Southern Motorway late next year. Perfect for those wishing to downsize from a farm, or large family requiring access to the city. Interested parties are encouraged to act quickly if they wish to secure this once in a lifetime opportunity.
