Updated Photos - This exceptional and rare heritage property will suit only the most discerning of buyers.
Greenlea is a superior turn of the 20th century homestead and is arguably one of the best character properties of its type in New Zealand.
As you approach along the driveway guarded by the majestic 80 ft Norfolk pines, all the stress of today's fast pace of life will melt away as this spectacular home appears before you. Beautifully redecorated and refurbished to the highest standard throughout by its present owners over a 20 year period (the vendors are prepared to include the majority of the furniture by negotiation). This spacious, well insulated, centrally heated home offers modern amenities without sacrificing its grand period style. Built entirely of heart native New Zealand timbers this home is an exceptional example of the superb craftmanship of its era.
Set on 5 hectares of land this magnificent home has sweeping lawns with formal yet easy care gardens, 4 paddocks, shelter belts and a dam.
When privacy is of the utmost importance look no further than this exquisite and unique homestead. Entertaining will be a dream come true. Take advantage of the large covered verandas, a formal dining room, a billiards room, two lounges, a library or office and a large bespoke kitchen with top of the range appliances.
Within a short drive you will find excellent educational options at all levels, a picturesque market town featuring shops, restaurants, bars and a boutique movie theatre. Palmerston North City is only 15 minutes away with a very well service regional airport.
With the main state highway less than 10 minutes away "Greenlea" is conveniently located in New Zealand's lower North Island with the capital city Wellington, the wine growing regions of Hawkes Bay and South Wairarapa, and the ski fields, fishing, biking and hiking of the Tongariro National Park all within 1-2hours drive.
Lifestyle choices abound for families or those with an entrepreneurial eye.
The images do not do this outstanding property justice and it must be seen to be truly appreciated so call for a viewing without delay.
