About this property

  • Believed to date from the 1870s, Arawai House is a stunning example of a substantial Victorian family home. The property benefits from many period features one would expect from this era including generous ceiling heights, well proportioned rooms and large windows, as well as a number of original fireplaces, wooden floors and doors.
    Highlights of the house include the beautiful formal drawing and dining rooms as well as the exceptional kitchen/breakfast room, which has been fitted with a Bora induction hob, Quooker basin and Miele oven. There are delightful elevated views over the mature gardens to the rear from the decked terrace. The snug is located off the kitchen, a study and a flexible space in the basement currently being used a games area and store room. There is a separate door to an annexe with reception room, kitchen, bathroom and bedroom on the mezzanine level all with separate outside access to the rear garden.

    On the first floor, there is a wonderfully proportioned principal bedroom with dressing room and en suite bathroom. There are 5 additional double bedrooms and two family bathrooms. On the second floor is a play room, ideal as a yoga studio with a magnificent window facing over the garden and Hangers. There are three other store rooms as well on this floor.

    Approached via electric gates and a gravel driveway, Arawai house has a sizeable and attractive front and side garden where there is ample car parking. All set in approximately 4 acres, to the rear there is a large attractive garden, one area currently being used as a tennis court, the other ideal for a swimming pool/ croquet lawn. There are a number of outbuildings, all bound by a beautiful old garden wall to the south. There is also a gate to the rear woodland.
