83 Dick Road, PortobelloSOLD
Off the beaten track, yet close to Portobello, this 17.8Ha property bordering the beautiful Papanui Inlet, affords its new owners a rarely available, idyllic lifestyle opportunity.
Nestled in a private setting, the 1980's Mason & Wales architecturally designed home has recently been extended to cater for the demands of larger family living.
The new designer kitchen is strategically positioned to be the hub of the home; whether for family dining or formal entertaining. Exposed wooden beamed ceilings are a special feature of the open-plan kitchen-living area and the separate lounge with open fire.
Seamless flow to the 46m2 deck by two sets of bi-fold doors; wonderful for entertaining, soaking up the sun or enjoying the unobstructed night sky. The rest of the ground floor has two double bedrooms and two bathrooms.
Upstairs you will discover the master bedroom with nursery or study, plus another double bedroom and third bathroom. All bedrooms have BIW's and throughout the home you'll find extra storage nooks and cupboards. The home is heated by woodburner and large heatpump and mostly double-glazed and insulated for year round warmth.
Vehicles are accommodated with double garaging plus workshop area and ample OSP.
The thoughtfully planted property provides sun, shelter and shade for stock and is of a suitable size for grazing animals and chooks.
Rich in local history, it was one of the first dairy farms on the Peninsula, remnants of the original homestead can still be found among the well-established stands of Scotch pines and Pinus radiata. Especially notable, it includes part of the Salt Marshes within its boundaries. This increasingly rare habitat is frequented by a diverse range of wildlife including pukeko, paradise ducks, herons, kingfishers, spoonbills and all manner of terns.
Just a leisurely 35-minute drive from the city, this property is a one-off opportunity for you to secure a true piece of paradise.
