Imagine sipping your G&T on the viewing deck from the separate living room while watching your daughter and son ride their beautiful horses around the purpose-built 800 m2 equestrian arena; how lovely and proud you must feel and how happy you are to know their unbeatable passion captures a moment for them of sheer enjoyment. Their horsefloat is parked off-street adjacent to the two looseboxes opposite the double internal access garage.
Beautifully established trees, lawned areas and enchanting gardens complement the 1936 North-facing iconic residence so preciously positioned behind the tall hedged front boundary down Marton's gracious Wanganui Road on the way to Huntley Boys' and Girls' School. Out the front gate, there's a lovely walk down to the Library, the shops, yoga centre, and popular Sugar Plum Cafe.
As you enter the bold front door of this 16 radiator gas centrally heated homestead, you are welcomed by a beautiful Rimu-lined guest reception hall that easily accesses the library and dining rooms to the left, and the living room to the right. You can imagine climbing the staircase to the first level of this character home which features main bedroom with walk-in wardrobe, potential office area, two other double bedrooms, and modern tiled floor bathroom. Beautiful views delight you from the main bedroom over the magnificent and gorgeous grounds.
Farm-style kitchen downstairs is combined with casual dining while there is a separate more formal dining room. Feel free to press the servants' bells. The kitchen opens out to the viewing deck that connects you back to the living room. The summer room has bifold windows to push open to enjoy the summer sounds and lets in the vibrant sunlight. Downstairs, there is a study and bathroom, plus access to the double garage. The dog sleeping area in the garage is fitted with one of the central gas heating radiators - how spoilt!
Here is your chance to enjoy the architecture of a bygone era and to own one of Marton's finest homesteads in the scenic Rangitikei District of New Zealand.
Marton is only 20 minutes drive to Feilding, 25 minutes drive to Whanganui, 10 minutes drive to Bulls, 15 minutes drive to RNZAF Base Ohakea.
