Cranmere Homestead

This original homestead has absorbed a lot of life, and if the walls could talk, they'd have heaps to say. Built to serve a vast Tamahere farm, this near centenarian of a home is full of distinctive character and vintage appeal. While the surrounding land mass has given way to quality lifestyle holdings over the years, none of the home's size and charm have diminished. These days, the homestead nestles on a private 6417m2 site, planted largely in natives, but also offering paddocks for the family pets. Shiny-leaved titoki trees line much of the driveway that lies off the end of the quiet Cranmere cul-de-sac. Voluminous rooms ease off a traditional wide central hallway of newly polished matai flooring. There are spacious areas for family living, a big parlour for formal entertaining, sunny verandahs overlooking the inground swimming pool, and spacious five bedroom accommodation, including two with studies, and one with an ensuite. A feature fireplace and restful garden outlook enhance the ambience of the master bedroom. The sun has a welcome presence throughout the day, reaching the open plan kitchen, dining and family zone in the afternoon where it penetrates a large bay window. At some stage of its evolution, the tongue and groove kitchen was revamped to house modern appliances, including a wall oven. And while the original fireplaces have been retained, comfort is boosted by heat pump units. A spa bath has also been added. Interiors are set under high stud ceilings. Dado rails feature in the formal lounge and period detailing is evident throughout. Lush greenery creates a natural backdrop to the in-ground swimming pool, which is newly repainted. The grounds are richly planted in natives and also showcase some spectacular exotics. Pathways through the grove provide an invigorating meander. There are paddocks for pets or beefies, stables for ponies or storage, garaging and carport. The tranquil rural area is zoned for Hillcrest schools, and close to Tamahere and Matangi primaries, and transport.
