Sale is Plus GST (if any). Executive lifestyle at its best is on offer in the heart of Tasman. Surplus to the requirements of its absentee owner, 300 Pomona Road, Ruby Bay, really is something special. From its 360 degree bay and mountain views to the contemporary country home, in-ground pool with substantial pool house and 14ha of lush grazing land, to three standalone workers accommodation cottages, it sets the scene for any number of lifestyle options.Central to the property is a classically styled 272 square metre modern 5 bedroom home, built in 2001. Features include a home office with separate entrance, a huge stand-alone work/equipment shed, double garage with internal access, spacious walk-in linen cupboard/drying room, separate laundry and of course plenty of room for family living with not just one, but two large lounges. Many of the rooms have views front and back, across Tasman Bay to the east and to the Kahurangi National Park in the west; the large double glazed modern windows making the most of the panoramic beauty. Look across to d'Urville Island or enjoyed the snow-capped majesty of Mt Arthur and its rugged environs. The master suite - with walk-in wardrobe and generous ensuite bathroom - has French doors accessing the verandah, as does the large guest double bedroom. All five bedrooms enjoy views across to the western ranges, while the contemporary country kitchen overlooks Tasman Bay. The interior décor is cool and neutral in the common living areas, with clever lighting, quality fittings and furnishings. Subtle hints of colour enliven the bedrooms which all have built-in wardrobes and loads of room for all ages. The spacious family bathroom includes separate bath and shower, and there is a separate lavatory. Fully double glazed, the house is warmed via a ducted heat pump system throughout, augmented by a wood burner in the formal lounge.
Outside the hard work has been done forming the gardens, including a potager in front of the kitchen, the paths and other infrastructure. Adjacent to the house is a 10m by 5m solar-heated salt-water pool with summer solar cover and automated pool cleaner. Part of the fully fenced pool enclosure is a pool house incorporating a changing room, toilet and shower and multi-purpose studio room. Comprising 14.035ha originally planted in apples, the gently contoured property comes with its own Bio Cycle septic system, a 23,000 litre concrete tank which is on the Mapua Water Scheme, and also has a 2/3 share of a water right to a 13 million litre dam across the road. The icing on the cake may well be the three standalone workers accommodation cottages on the northern boundary. Two of the cottages are in original condition, while the middle one - with two bedrooms and a sunroom - has been renovated to a high standard. Completing this country estate is a pond in the paddock below the main house, with well-established native plants and its own small jetty. Proudly marketed by Ross Lockhart of Harcourts Motueka, 300 Pomona Road is on the market for $1.5 million plus GST (if any). If you are serious about lifestyle, you need to see this property.
