Built with love as a wedding gift, the beautifully restored Omana is a 1928 Villa set on approx 2.5 acres of park-like grounds. Including decks and verandas, the 325sqm home provides a wow factor, not only in its interior design style but with an intangible vibe of happiness and love here.
Tall Phoenix stands proud to greet you, once you have meandered up the sweeping driveway. Once inside the beautiful wooden flooring and retained villa charms, that include high studs and wall panelling, will delight you. There are three spacious living areas, two wood-burning fireplaces, a Kent style fire, and separate formal dining.
The dream chefs kitchen showcases a stunning Aga cooking range, character wooden bench-tops and cabinetry, inbuilt fridge/freezer and a fabulous chef sized walk-in-pantry, and informal dining and picturesque window views.
Off the long central hallway are four of the five bedrooms, three of which are roomy and spacious and beautifully appointed for sunlight and warmth, and a single which is a perfect nursery or work from the home office. The master bedroom is super-sized and has doors to the sunny north facing veranda and lawn. There has been no expense spared in the recent renovation of this home including the beautiful guest wing, with sleeping loft, living area and facilities. Two bathrooms, two separate WC's and a good-sized laundry/mudroom make this the perfect layout for any residing configuration.
Outside, the wonderful covered verandas, pavilion, paved resting and entertaining areas let you enjoy the great outdoors any time of the day. The northern side has space for large gatherings and overlooks the flat green lawn where you can enjoy pétanque, croquet or install a tennis court AND a swimming pool, or land the helicopter.
The western veranda provides sunshade with a pretty gazebo, paved afternoon lounge area and gives access to the established orchard with a plethora of fruit and nuts on offer.
There are a modern 64.8m2 freestanding workshop/shed and a 48m2 double garage. The landscaping and specimen trees are beautiful, frame the property for peace and privacy. When combined with the size of the home and grounds, so splendidly presented and just 45 minutes from the Auckland CBD - you won't be able to resist this beauty.
