Secret Serenity… Hidden in Waihi

  • 2 Beds
  • 1 Bath

Located in the Waihi College area on the western side of Waihi, this beauty of a property, as well as being quiet, private and secure, is also sheltered from prevailing winds and has gorgeous views to the North of the local hills.

The main house is a former Edwardian miner's cottage, much changed over the decades, with decking around 3 sides and a sheltered/covered area at the rear for outdoor living.

All rooms have French-doors or equivalent opening to the outside, to allow for outdoor living in the summer, and the lounge has a wonderful log burner for those cooler winter nights.

There is a carport and outdoor parking for 3-4 vehicles by the house, which are all well off street and secure, with a gate at the end of the driveway.

Also sited on the property is a 1970s former NZ Education Department prefab classroom (approx. 80 sqm) that has been used for an artist and class studio. Private, and situated some 75 yards from the main house, it is placed with the main windows facing north eastwards allowing for good light.

The classroom/studio could be developed for alternative use as it has a separate road entrance that can be used, and the underneath can be opened up to double the work/storage area (4 to 6 car garaging). The house and classroom/studio would be suitable for use as a holiday house that could sleep at least 12+ people.

The property has a long private driveway, not visible from the street, and has plenty of room for tents and a camper van, or outdoor activities. There is also a secure garden shed at the rear of the property.

Though the property may require some work (mostly cosmetic decoration/finishing's), it is very minimal for a property of this age; and it is priced suitably for any works/alterations that may be required.
