Tui, Tranquillity and Nature
Paraparaumu 42 Guildford Drive
About This PropertyFor sale for the first time ever, this verdant oasis in the heart of Paraparaumu provides a year-round sanctuary of colour, splendour and privacy.
The owners developed their 1331sqm* of park-like grounds, complete with Monet bridge over a picturesque stream 24 years ago. Now it teems with natives and exotics, all varieties of lilies, and amazing birdlife, including a family of tui they feed every day.
As soon as you walk down the driveway lined with flowering cherry trees, you're immersed in a world like no other, one that will delight gardeners, nature-buffs and children who love to catch eels or throw bread to the ducks. Virtually every room in the predominately double-glazed three-bedroom, two-bathroom house frames a different aspect of the garden while opening to either lawn or a sheltered, leafy courtyard with a pergola.
The spacious living is open plan (with a gas fireplace for those cooler months), there is a charming 'garden nook' for relaxing with the French doors open to a sunny terrace, and a room known as "Dad's Den" is the perfect 'man cave' with ensuite.
Add a dell on the other side of the stream, where you can barbecue or entertain alfresco style under a canopy of greenery, and you have an idyllic retreat that's just a few minutes' drive from shops, eateries and the beach.
