City close, Country quiet, Craftsman's masterpiece
Grand in every sense, this urban sanctuary is a family home of the highest calibre. Located in one of Rotorua's favourite city suburbs, it offers the significant benefits of quality workmanship, a spacious 400sqm floor plan and an exceptional indoor-outdoor lifestyle. Built by well-known local craftsman, Don Parke, this landmark four-bedroom home comes with the tantalising prospect of low maintenance, timeless style and great capacity for entertaining. Nestled on a trim-kept 809sqm section, it evokes a sense of relaxation and gives peace of mind living via a private, secure backyard. Spread over two generous levels, the solid brick home provides the perfect format for large-scale living and entertaining. While formal and casual living truly impress, it's the huge kitchen that steals the show. Aside from the big walk-in pantry, it has room for family and friends to sit, kids to do homework and budding chefs to conjure up their culinary dreams. The bedrooms are quiet retreats served by on-trend bathrooms, including an ensuite off the master. Upstairs attracts a city panorama while downstairs gives itself over to indoor-outdoor pleasures. Guests have a powder room and garaging is a big three-car affair. The refreshed home is dressed in a contemporary colour palette, boasts new carpet, abundant double glazing and warm natural materials. It lies minutes from the CBD, close to local shops and schools, and in easy reach of diverse lifestyle attractions.
