SOLD by Karl Leathley EVES Real Estate Whangarei

Seriously for sale and now priced at $589,000... $66,000 below Rateable Value! Are you a fan of a great story? This beautifully presented family home was the featured subject of the 2015 humorous memoir DIRTY CHICK, in which American author Antonia Murphy learned to farm vegetables, raise animals, and make her own wine and cheese. Featured in Australian Women's Weekly and New Zealand Lifestyle Block Magazine, this 4.6ha property is all set up and ready to offer you the ultimate Kiwi lifestyle dream. Comprising 177sqm of floor area over three levels, the character-packed homestead features five bedrooms, two bathrooms and a modern kitchen that offers a country touch. Spacious open plan living spaces enjoy plenty of sunlight, while excellent indoor/outdoor flow ensures you (and the family) will spend plenty of time outside. A single garage with internal access adds to the appeal also. The large section features established fruit trees interspersed with native trees and shrubs, while the big veggie garden will appeal to those with green fingers. Grazing land comprises of five fenced paddocks (each with its own water supply) and is currently leased by a neighbour - perfect if you just want to enjoy the land without managing stock. The huge shed will impress those looking storage for the boat, caravan or the family toys. The excellent Purua School is located nearby - families that desire a classic kiwi school experience need look no further! Lifestyle lovers and families looking to establish themselves in a fabulous spot will be drawn to this affordable opportunity, and interested parties are advised to act quickly.
