Though at first glance a church, this house has been a lively home for a boisterous family for the last 19 years. An 1880’s Dargaville church building was uplifted from where it lay, and repurposed into a home bursting with character and history. Unique Magnificence
Lovingly rebuilt, the works included rewiring, insulation and preservation of the original magnificent stained glass windows including the solid kauri floorboards and double front doors. In addition a mezzanine floor was added to accommodate four bedrooms, with a master bedroom and ensuite. This floor overlooks the replanted gully of native bush on the property, which attracts native birds to nest and feed. The kitchen was fitted with a Falcon oven and gas stove, and comprises the main dining and living area opening onto a newly fitted rimu deck. With years of love and unique character filling this house, and such painstaking attention to historical preservation throughout the building, any new owner should be honoured to be able to add their own stamp on this home’s colourful history.
Sitting on approx. 2,500m2 this property is situated a very short distance from the village.
Waipu is a great location. It retains that quaint village feel yet has a good range of facilities and a vast range of sporting activities including rugby, tennis, croquet, bowling and fishing – it is also home to the Award winning Pizza Barn and UNESCO recognized Waipu Museum. Also you can’t beat the beautiful white sandy beaches of Waipu Cove, Langs Beach, Uretiti and Ruakaka and you are approximately 90 minutes to the Auckland Harbour Bridge and 30 minutes to Whangarei.
Many properties have laid claim to being the best in Waipu. Ignore those, this is the real thing. If you want imaginative, quirky, breathtaking, unusual and simply in a class of its own then this is the property for you.Unique Magnificence
