House sale: A Taupo gem in an award-winning garden SPONSORED
A beautiful Taupo home and award-winning garden is available for sale.
This architect-designed home in Five Mile Bay’s prestigious Mahuta Road is two minutes from Taupo’s best beach, five minutes from the airport and 10 minutes from town. Its thoughtful open-plan layout leads to spacious decks off the lounge. The bedrooms are all connected to the magnificent garden.
A guest bathroom and separate dining and office areas make this home functional as well as a joy to live in. The master bedroom, with en-suite bathroom, also opens to a spacious deck overlooking the garden.
Across a glassed-in gallery is a separate two-bedroom guest cottage, which is fully self-contained with a kitchenette and a bathroom. The home, built from native timbers, is fully heated with under-floor heating and has a double garage.
The garden is rated as being of International Significance by the New Zealand Gardens Trust and contains the owner’s lifetime collection of plants and Steuart Welch steel sculptures. Do you have lots of family wanting to come and stay? Or perhaps you like the idea of operating a guest-hosting business? This property would suit you perfectly.
Taupo is among the fastest-growing regions in the North Island, attracting holidaymakers chasing lake and mountain activities as well as those seeking respite from big cities.
