RURAL PEACE WITH LONG VIEWS
A drive up Hurford Rd from Surf Highway 45 at Omata reveals an impressive number of new and recently built homes. That says this rural setting just minutes from central New Plymouth is a popular lifestyle choice.
At 619 Hurford Rd, you will find an easy-care acre of land (about 4000sqm), mostly flat and comprising five small paddocks, framing this striking family home. The house is a contemporary-styled, mono-pitch-roof design with four bedrooms, two living areas, double garaging and excellent indoor-outdoor flow.
The living areas face north and naturally catch the warmth and light of the sun from morning till night. They also capture a striking view down the rural landscape to a sea horizon.
Walk from the foyer through into the sunny open-plan living areas and the views open up - and they get even better with step-through wide-opening doors out on to the deck. During the day, you can see the tall shapes of Paritutu Rock and its pencil-thin chimney neighbour and at night there's a beacon of lights up the North Taranaki coast that marks the location of the Motunui methanol plant.
The views can also be appreciated from the central kitchen space, which has been well-specified with a 900mm gas-electric cooker and an island bench with hidden cupboards designed into its front.
A contemporary Masport wood burner in the main lounge area complements the heat pump in the hallway that warms or cools the bedroom areas. A second spacious lounge behind the kitchen offers plenty of flexibility, allowing separate activities just a few steps apart during gatherings of family and friends.
The home's floor plan creates a master-bedroom wing with its own door out on to the deck and easy access to a spa pool. Along the hallway are three more bedrooms, one of them a quirky internal space with light and ventilation provided by a large skylight, a clever feature is the door up in the skylight area that opens into a ceiling space that is handy for storage.
The immediate grounds around the house are well-fenced to make life here safe for children and pets. The well-presented gardens contain two garden sheds and a variety of fruit and ornamental trees and shrubs.
