Boasting exceptional provenance this beautiful property is spread over 61 acres of flat and gently contoured land in a picturesque North Canterbury location framed by the majestic backdrop of the Southern Alps. 'Hillcrest' presents as an idyllic, secluded homestead for the professional or amateur equestrian enthusiast and families seeking an executive country lifestyle. A hint of grandeur is set with secure gates leading up the long drive between the well-fenced, fertile paddocks and on past the stables complex, guest cottage or workers accommodation and a variety of other wool or implement sheds. The attractive character house has been renovated and altered in a contemporary manner yet is styled true to its origins. A light and spacious kitchen, dining plus informal living area is the essential core of the home and provides an easy transition from indoors to out. Multiple living areas invite formal entertaining along with options for a media room plus choices for an office or study. A practical flow from the formal living areas to the sprawling outdoors takes you to the paved patio with open-fire. This is an enchanting position to sit and watch your horses graze, activity in the heated in-ground pool or on the new tennis court. Downstairs comprises two bedrooms with own bathroom facilities, the upper level accommodating a further three double bedrooms, the main ensuite and family bathroom. The home offers plenty of potential too increase or reconfigure the current accommodation. The double garaging is located close to the house with other features including auto irrigation, own well and established shelterbelts. The property boasts plenty of paddocks with lush meadow grasses and conservatively runs 30 head of cattle, 10 sheep and 12 horses. Our vendors have made the commitment to move further north and hence this magnificent property is available for genuine purchase. Phone Rosemarie or Mark for further information - or to arrange a viewing.
