House Sold - Whitemans Valley Upper Hutt
Finally a property that ticks all the boxes – gorgeous rural location, spacious and flexible accommodation to suit a wide range of needs, and a short drive to the village of Silverstream for easy access into Wellington. The combination of a large family house, together with a separate self-contained guest cottage and generous garage / workshop, means you’ll never be short of space or places to relax and sip a glass of wine overlooking your own private bush reserve.
The main house reflects the current owners need for comfort, privacy and indoor/outdoor flow. A customised Lockwood design, it is fully insulated and double-glazed throughout, offers zoned underfloor heating, and is supplemented with a wood-burner in the main dining / living area to keep everyone cozy and warm year round.
High chapel ceilings, floor-to-ceiling windows, and light ‘blonded’ interior walls predominate, delivering a sense of calm which matches the bush and gardens outside. Three living areas, all pre-wired for your audio equipment, allow family members to spread out and relax, whilst the wide deck and generous verandah gives ample opportunity to enjoy the grounds, kitchen garden, and vistas beyond.
The house offers three bedrooms, including a master with large walk-in wardrobe and ensuite, together with a generous family bathroom. A study / nursery, and dedicated laundry, all offer extra space for your needs.
The separate one-bedroom cottage is built in similar style, with high ceilings and large sliding doors opening onto a private deck area. An open-plan kitchen / dining area, lounge, and spacious bathroom provides ample room for extended family members, teenagers, or guests. The adjoining garage / workshop can easily accommodate two cars and your sporting, DIY and gardening equipment.
The property is set within a 4.05 hectare block, comprising a number of fenced paddocks which all have access to water (either natural or via troughs with pumped non-potable water). A central bush area provides a haven for native birds.
