The Ultimate In A Lifestyle Property

A fabulous and simply outstanding property allows for a family to live life to the full. Infused with a holiday mindset, this property brings together a superbly crafted home, outdoor leisure facilities, 3.8ha of land and awe-inspiring lake views to offer a sublime living experience.

There'll be no missing those overseas vacations with such a resort-style environment in your own backyard. The home was constructed by iconic Rotorua builder, the late Don Parkes. Dripping in detail and reflecting his dedication to craftsmanship, the dwelling has strength of character, is built to last and solidly anchored to the stunning landscape. Everything is on a grand scale. All living areas link to the alfresco entertaining zone set against a lake panorama, views of Mokoia Island and Mt Tarawera.

The modern farm-style kitchen, serviced by a large scullery, is a foodie's haven with a penchant for entertaining. Open-plan living, formal and family rooms and master suite grace the ground floor. Upstairs reveals spacious bedrooms, a full family bathroom and a TV lounge/study with a private deck. The home is refreshed with new interior and exterior colours, and the house gardens have been redesigned for easier maintenance.

Full of family appeal, outdoors offers something for everyone, including a heated swimming pool, tennis court, numerous entertainment spaces, restful gardens and huge garaging. Imbued with a peaceful rural aesthetic this exceptional retreat is also close to urban life.
