Solar powered estate offers sustainable and luxurious rural lifestyle opportunity just north of Auckland

Step into a realm of sophistication and tranquility, as the 135 hectare (330 acre) Hutchinson Family Farm opens its gates to the market for the first time in 140 years.

The meticulously crafted property at 955 Ahuroa Road seamlessly blends opulence, historical allure, and a commitment to sustainable living, offering an unparalleled opportunity for both domestic and international buyers.

“This is an extremely rare offering. You won't find a block of land that’s so well put together, and takes such little effort to run” says Bayleys salesperson Dianna Coman.

At the heart of the sprawling estate stands a magnificent home, featuring an open-plan design with a lofty 3.6m stud. A commanding open fireplace hewn from Coromandel river stone, serves as the focal point to envelope the living space in warmth, before leading to three spectacular bedrooms and two bathrooms.

“The statement entrance hall sets the tone for this breathtaking residence. The grand master suite will suit the most luxurious among us, with an enormous walk-in dressing room and ensuite.”

The kitchen provides a culinary haven for cooking enthusiasts. Equipped with top-of-the-line American-made ovens, and a spacious walk-in scullery, it’s the perfect mix of luxury and functionality. The outdoor entertainment zone, graced by a Flare fire outdoor pizza oven and a heated pool, extends the grandeur to an al fresco setting.

“The home is sensational, and its design is world class. Imagine evenings spent dining next to the pool and the stunning views, all while enjoying a delicious meal cooked in the spectacular pizza oven.”

“It’s the perfect spot for a family gathering, or something more extravagant.”

Complementing the main residence is a separate 4-bay tandem garage, and a multi-level barn providing extensive machine parking and storage.

Equestrian enthusiasts will find delight in the stables, tack room, and separate wash bays for horses and machinery. A historical homestead overlooking a century-old orchard of pears and plums adds a touch of vintage charm to the contemporary magnificence.

“It’s amazing to think that those trees date back to the beginning of the property’s existence. They certainly feel like they have their own story to tell.”

“This property is very iconic now. Anyone who has driven that road can’t help but notice its presence.”

Hutchinson Family Farm is primed for a range of activities, with sheep yards, Te Pari cattle yards, a half round ‘smart-shelter’ and pre-prepared site for an arena. 80 hectares of land is dedicated to grazing, and the rest to native bush, satisfying both farming and environmental conservation.

Enjoy the Te Araroa walkway, bushwalks, horse riding, dirt bike trails and natural landscapes.

“If you love the outdoors, this property is the perfect spot for you. There really is something to cater to everyone.”

To top it all off, sustainability takes center stage at 955 Ahuroa Road, with solar power as the primary energy source, a windmill-driven bore water supply, and a strong commitment to eco-conscious practices.

“It’s been a really important addition for the current owners. Everything on the property can be driven by solar. They even have a utility room just for the solar equipment. It’s a huge investment in sustainability.”

This Premier Estate offers an unrivaled location, placing Auckland, the Matakana Coast, and the prestigious golfing destinations of Te Ari and Tara Iti all within easy reach, and despite its close proximity to urban amenities, the property maintains an air of serenity, allure, and exclusivity.

955 Ahuroa Road is the epitome of luxury living, seamlessly blending heritage, sustainability, and unparalleled lifestyle opportunities together for its next owner.
