Porirua 1234 Paekakariki Hill Road
About This PropertyBreathtaking birdsong and lush natural beauty abound in this sublimely storybook splendour of seclusion and serenity.
Sequestered amid 4.06 hectares* of native bush and rolling pasture, it exemplifies the best of country living for those who crave a House and Garden-magazine lifestyle.
Meandering down the driveway, beneath the archway of trees, and past the farm shed and paddocks is like leaving the rest of the world behind to start a new chapter of your life.
Built of heart timbers, the charming 1900s weatherboard home looks like it's always been part of the countryside, blending in with the magnolia, gum and kowhai trees that distinguish the bucolic splendour of its surroundings.
The three-bedroom house's heritage is reflected in the warmth of its character, from the polished floorboards, paned windows and painted beam ceiling to the timber panelling, bevelled glass cavity doors and French doors that open off the front porch into a sunroom on one side and the lounge on the other. The latter has a cosy brick fireplace, but it's the woodburner in the hall that keeps the house warm in winter with the never-ending supply of firewood that can be culled from trees on the property.
A spacious eat-in kitchen with a family room at the northern end of the house with a window seat view of the garden.
And it won't just be guests reluctant to go - the vendors have been here for 30 years and their neighbour for 50!
So if you want to spend the rest of your life immersed in scenery and greenery, in a world of your own but just a few minute's drive from Paekakariki Village and train station, don't miss out on making this your happy-ever-after home.
