The time has come for our vendors to put their treasured property on the market.
This substantial 270sqm, the triple brick homestead has been fully renovated. Two adjoining lounges, four bedrooms, two bathrooms all full of character and has been the perfect setting for family gatherings.
The separate lounge is an absolute haven with its calming ambience, flowing through to the sun-drenched media room, which opens out to the swimming pool area.
The brand new Barrett's kitchen has set the home up being the jewel in the crown. Diesel central heating keeps the home cosy throughout Winter.
The woolshed has a spacious loft, which in the past has supported family and friends playing pool and table tennis. The outside office (or 5th bedroom) has a shower and hand basin including an adjoining room. If so desired these two rooms could be incorporated as a bedsit with the removal of the wall.
Park Hill has a history of producing stock of a very high standard, including Group one winners, Johnny Alone and Magnet Bay.
6 to 8 loose boxes including well fenced day yards have given the Vendors the opportunity to produce top draughts for the South Island and Karaka Premier sales. Cattle/sheep yards set this property up for a range of different options, being fully deer fenced and having 15 hectares of rolling to flat land. Ideal for a bed and breakfast, grow your own beautiful farm eggs.
It's time to contact Ben and join him in the leisurely drive up the tree lined driveway to this magnificent homestead beyond.
Leaving is not an option!
