Enjoy an idyllic lifestyle on the outskirts of Blenheim with this 8.1 hectare block providing a desirable combination of viticulture, bare land and a warm home in most picturesque surroundings.
Located down a right of way, this property sits amid beautifully landscaped gardens requiring minimal maintenance. Impressive focal points of the property include two ponds providing a scenic waterside setting protected by a conservation covenant. An established vineyard of some 4.48 hectares is planted in a mix of Chardonnay, Riesling and Gewurztraminer, currently producing around 40 tonne per annum.
Designed by the architect as his own home, the style of the dwelling is reminiscent of an oast-house, paying homage to the history of the locale. The three bedroom residence has double glazed open-plan living areas with natural slate tile flooring and underfloor heating. Window seats in the study and dining room provide inviting spaces to bask in the sun and admire the vineyard. An open fire and heat pump efficiently heat the home, and in warmer weather you can swing open the doors to the deck area.
The property offers two well-fenced grazing paddocks, a vegetable garden, and home orchard. A separate double garage, sheds, and intriguing out-buildings provide both storage and amenity. The two natural ponds, reflecting trees and vines, attract many species of wild-fowl to the garden estate, constantly animating the outlook.
Tender Closes : 2pm on Thursday 29 June
