Oakfield Lodge - superb country estate
Comprising 16ha (more or less) of all flat land, this versatile country estate boasts superb equestrian facilities, supports maize growing and speaks to the consummate lifestyler.
Located between Morrinsville and Te Aroha, the well-packaged property has many features. Reigning over the extensive block is a large Lockwood residence beautifully in tune with the rural ambience. Over two levels, the home can comfortably accommodate an active family and guests. Downstairs are three bedrooms, a bathroom and a spacious open-plan kitchen and dining area flowing effortlessly into the large lounge. A kitchen island with an under-bench fridge, a five-burner gas hob, electric oven, side-by-side fridge/freezer, double drawer dishwasher and bi-fold windows onto the sun-drenched deck make entertaining a delight. A laundry and wet room add substance to the large double garage. A roomy upstairs master suite beckons for peaceful luxuriating and the generous landing meets diverse needs, from living area to office or hobby room.
Designed for utmost comfort, the home offers the convenience of gas hot water, under-tile heating, heat pumps and plentiful storage. Its visually appealing timber interior echoes the nature and provides a warm aesthetic throughout.
Architecture and landscape co-exist in harmony and the stunning countryside views extend to the Kaimai Ranges. Buxus hedging enhances the easy-care gardens and 14 paddocks are defined by post and rail fencing. One large paddock currently grows maize. Comprehensively appointed for equine use, the property encompasses a high-stud 24mx12m shed with a concrete wash bay, four loose boxes and a lockable tack room. Roller doors feature on two bays and the workshop has a toilet. Further infrastructure includes a 64mx20m sand dressage arena, an enclosed three-bay 9mx6m storage shed, a three-bay gable hay barn, a float loading ramp and a stock loading ramp.
