Full Description: If you go down to the woods today you're sure to have a surprise". But it won't be teddy bears having a picnic but ducks and chickens at home in the "woods" of this 5880sqm property. The original owner planted many, now magnificent, trees with the idea of attracting native birds. There are Rimu, Pear, Poplar, Camellia, Feijoa, Rhododendron and many others which have achieved impressive heights creating a haven in the midst of neighbouring farmland. The back section has been fenced to provide a sanctuary for Cayuga ducks and drakes (eggs!) and hens (more eggs!). If poultry are not your thing there's plenty of scope for a picturesque garden around the pond and utilizing the vegetable gardens and the glasshouse. The 1950's home has been transformed over the years. The bedrooms are double, the bathroom is new and the spacious lounge now opens to a very sunny and new deck. The kitchen is user friendly and has a new stove. Altogether this is 150sqm of family friendly living. The large separate double garage has workshop space, built in benches and a pit. Whakamaru is just 4km and has popular riverside cycle trails, waterskiing and there's also a general store, service station and a cafe. This is a special, one-off property. Perfect if you want country living on 1.4 acres within commuting distance to Taupo town.
