This unique property was public reserve until the late 1960's. An arborists delight, it is abundant with flora and fauna; most of the section is in pristine, mature native bush with multiple walkways, a stream, bridges and lake while closer to the house is a fine selection of named rhododendrons, camelias, fruit trees and other exotics. The gardens are in harmony with nature so there is little weeding or other tedious maintenance to do. Relax and listen to the resident wood pidgeons, tuis, fantails, kingfishers, wax eyes and hundreds of other birds, feed the ducks, play on the rope swing or relax with guests, cook a steak on the open fire barbeque and marvel at the breathtaking native flora. Rewarewas, rimus, kohekohes, kauri, pongas, lancewoods, huge walnuts, pawpaws, Norfolk pines, maples, karakas, puriris, pohutukawas, cordylines, kowhai trees, magnolias, amazing ferns, dracaenas and so many more varieties - own your very own 1.6 acres of back-yard Pukekura Park. The pond and stream are abundant with koura (fresh water crayfish), some gold fish and, from time to time, freshwater trout. In the evenings there is a spectacular display from the glowowrms which live alongside the pathways and near the spa room. Close the front door and make the city vanish. The arcitecturally designed house was built in the early 1970's with some renovations completed last year. Downstairs are separate guest rooms, storage and spa room. Privacy is assured; one never needs to close the drapes in the master bedroom - instead, let the moon shine in and then watch the sunrise beyond the liquidambar. Near the house is a fully fenced area for the pet dog to make a home in.
