Not often does a property of this calibre come to the market.
This beautifully restored 6-bedroom character villa was the original masonic lodge in Tirau, between 1905 through to the early 1990’s. Something magical happens when you step into this character home. It envelopes you in its charm, history and grandeur, and reminds you this is a truly special experience! This two story villa gives you that exact feeling from the moment you arrive at the front gate and venture up the path across the lawn to the glorious verandahs facing the street. This is a home steeped in history with wooden floors, high stud but with modern conveniences, family kitchen, informal and formal living spaces, gas heating and a heat pump.
The house is configured in such a manner that our owners have run a low-key B & B when it suits. The 875 m2 flat section offers a double garage, outdoor entertaining and a fully fenced lawn area. The location is ideal, less than two minutes’ walk to Tirau shops and close to the cycle trails, Okoroire Hotel, Hobbiton and Matamata. If you love history, character and charm and are seeking a substantial family home for extended family, or a B & B, then you must see this remarkable property.
