Set on an apple orchard in Mapua, this three-bedroom home is a showcase of refined rural living. Clad in Linea weatherboard with board-and-batten features, the exterior is in harmony with the lovely farmland and Waimea Inlet setting. Stepping inside, the modern farmhouse design unfolds and the layout ensures the water views are on show. The kitchen, at the heart of the home, is positioned for the chef to enjoy those captivating water views. From here, taking meals outdoors is just a few easy steps. The large scullery includes a wine fridge and ample storage. The interior aesthetic is enhanced with features such as the schist fireplace surround in the main lounge. A shuttered dividing wall in the dining area can be closed to provide intimacy or kept open to connect with the living space and views beyond. The three large bedrooms, two bathrooms, and two living areas all enjoy privacy, while also providing unrivalled views. The scenery is on show from various outdoor spaces, including a portico that’s set up for all-weather entertaining. The kwila decks are a pleasure underfoot and on the eye. Warmth, comfort and style are all accommodated.
