Southern Homes : January 15th 2015
2 Thursday, January 15, 2015 Southern Homes Rural opportunities: The section at 641 Clevedon Road covers approximately 33 acres and in the past has had horses, cattle and sheep grazing the paddocks. As pretty as a picture in Ardmore If you’re searching for a property that offers an abundance of rural beauty, a peaceful location and ample space to turn your farming dreams into a reality, Lucerne Farm in Ardmore is well worth a visit. At 641 Clevedon Road you will discover this enchanting 33 acre section, which is on the market for the first time since 1989 and is located just six kilometres from the town centres of Papakura and Clevedon. It is home to a vintage Kiwi villa, built in 1905 from hand-sawn kauri and with its special period features such as leadlight windows, back-toback fireplaces and soaring ceilings lovingly preserved for the next owners to enjoy. This property represents natural beauty at its finest and is sure to weave its heady spell of relaxation from the moment you enter the English lime tree flanked driveway and catch your first glimpse of the front gardens, which are bursting with hollyhocks, hydrangeas, camellias and French roses. Inside you will discover plenty of space for contented family living – with three double bedrooms and two bathrooms on the left hand side, while the shared living areas are on the right. These include a formal lounge, a formal dining room, a renovated kitchen with tranquil views over the countryside and a separate TV room. There is easy flow from the lounge and kitchen out to the wraparound veranda and extended sundeck, where you can entertain guests or keep an eye on children as they play in the swimming pool, the spa complex or on the tennis court. If you would prefer to simply sit back and enjoy the laid-back country lifestyle, there is the option of leasing the farmland out and reaping an additional income. Viewing in person is highly recommended, with open homes every Saturday and Sunday from 1pm till 2pm, or take a look online at harveys.co.nz using property ID PAK7663. The property will be auctioned on-site on February 8 at 2pm (unless sold prior). ❚ For all enquiries phone Graham Clark at Harveys Papakura on 298 4000 or 027 564 2700.

Enchanting entry: The vintage Kiwi villa is tucked away from the road down tree flanked driveway.
