Modern Matakana Lifestyle Property

07 September 2006

Modern Matakana Lifestyle Property Combines Best of City & Country Living
Busy young professionals seeking to combine the conveniences of modern living with rustic peaceful seclusion, need look no further than a lifestyle property near Matakana.

Marketed by Ben Kloppers of Harveys Warkworth, this impressive property is situated in a secluded country lane, midway between Matakana and Warkworth. Better still, the Ascension and Matakana Estate vineyards are within walking distance.

“For people wanting a place in the country but the comforts of a near-new home which still has a master builder guarantee, it doesn’t get any better than this,” says Ben. “It’s the perfect location for a family with small children who need extra space for themselves and their little ones to run around.”

The 1.2 hectare lifestyle property offers a spacious one-level home, a small paddock, an orchard and a large triple garage, and is listed at a realistic $975,000. “Properties of this value and at this price are hard to find in the Matakana region where you are only minutes from beaches, shops, a choice of cafes and a nice glass of wine,” says Ben.

The compact orchard consists of fruit trees that produce apples, mandarins and plums, and from a neighboring hill top the nearby Matakana Estate and Ascension Vineyard can be seen, making the area a perfect place to take leisurely strolls.

The architecturally designed three-year-old brick & tile home is a sun-trap and is sheltered from the wind by a belt of trees. Created with spaciousness in mind, it hosts four large bedrooms, two lounges, a study, large office and a designer kitchen. There is indoor/outdoor flow to a heated swimming pool and landscaped flat garden.

According to Ben, families will be particularly suited to the property as there is a bus stop at the top of the drive, nearby schools, other youngsters living in the 12 lifestyle blocks sharing the cul-de-sac, and it is safe and private.
