Having started life as a farmhouse, it has metamorphosed into a large residence full of warmth, light and family appeal. Vintage features, rich native timbers and retro embellishments maintain the home's original character and integrity while a seamless extension to family living, a gourmet kitchen, stylish bathrooms and indoor-outdoor flow, cater to modern lifestyle needs.

Borrowing from verandah architecture has allowed amenities, including an ensuite, walk-in robe and office, to be subtly incorporated into the home. The sun has an all-day presence and big sash windows draw in the light. Dinner parties, pool parties, childrens' parties ... whatever the celebration, this property will meet the occasion. The rear verandah and turret overlook the glistening salt-water pool, flat lawns and paddocks. An office is located off the double garage and the garage is currently used as a studio and games room.

Set behind a white picket fence and gate, the villa nestles in landscaped gardens developed in synch with the period of the home. Retained features including ornate fireplaces and coal range, enhance the villa's inherent charm. A butler's sink features in the laundry and the bathroom has a big claw-foot bath.

There is a large barn and three fenced paddocks, completing this lifestyle property located at the Hillcrest end of Newell Road.

Hi Neighbours, could you imagine cows floating down the Waikato River?

These cows are floating on Europe's largest port, in another effort to make cattle farming more sustainable. The owners call it the world's first 'floating farm'. It's in Rotterdam and they want it to minimize waste and land use, and also bring food production closer to the city.
