24 Magnet Lane, New Gisborne
This well-known Tudor-influenced home sits proudly on its 2.5 acres (approx.) high on Mount Magnet with long and panoramic northern and eastern views.
Surrounded by its terraced gardens and elegantly-positioned among its many established trees, this is a well-organised, beautifully-maintained and classic home offering tremendous scope for a family.
Downstairs (zoned in-floor hydronic heating throughout) you’ll find a welcoming foyer adjoining a massive combined living/dining room with wood combustion heater, split system, ceiling fans, double-glazed windows and tranquil peaceful views through its many picture windows. Through the doors lies a completely updated entertainer’s kitchen/meals area with Miele appliances, Caesar stone benches, marvellous cupboards and a chef’s quality exhaust system (Saugen). An added bonus is the reverse osmosis filtering system for drinking water.
A generously-proportioned bedroom with casement windows and superb eastern views, ensuite bathroom (separate toilet) and practical cupboards are nearby, plus an excellent laundry. The extra-sized double garage allows direct entry to the home which is serviced by a large electric HWS. The downstairs section of this house is thus entirely self-sufficient.
Upstairs you’ll find 3 further bedrooms. While all upstairs bedrooms have their own split systems, a fall-back arrangement includes an integrated ducted air conditioning flow-through which services the entire upstairs section and also caters for the kitchen below. Upstairs at the southern end, a large and comfortable bedroom with BIR’s, split system air conditioner and a walk-in room with toilet and basin is situated. French doors lead out onto a pretty deck with long southern views. Nearby is a further bedroom with a large WIR, casement window and grand easterly views.
A fully-renovated bathroom (shower and bath) and a separate fully renovated powder room provide light, bright and cheery respites from life’s toils. A fold-down storage facility allows access to the roof space.
A further bedroom or library room with its own split system, marvellous views and large adjoining dressing room (separate split system) with BIR’s, French doors to a lovely balcony and a magnificent modern bathroom are further features of this always-surprising and beautifully-presented home.
The piece-de-resistance is a huge lounge room with its own kitchenette and spectacular panoramic views. Access to the western deck is easy through the sliding doors.
Externally, there is a massive concrete water tank (10,000 gallons), a bore which provides excellent quality water to both the house and gardens through a series of pop-up sprinklers. Town water, 3 phase power and telephone co-axial cabling are connected to the home.
Marvellous stone-surrounded veggie gardens and some lovely vantage points for views and peaceful reflection are added features of this privately-positioned, handsome family home.
