Our home

Our house is rural paradise! Sitting on ten acres of pasture with a small stream and duckpond it is a single level wooden clad house with a beautiful swimming pool that is safely fenced seperately from the securely fenced garden. There is a large deck area for entertaining. The main house has three very large bedrooms, two bathrooms, a huge open plan kitchen, dining and lounge area and a lovely sunny conservatory area. There is a very efficent wood burning stove for winter nights. Adjoining the main house is a separate large "granny flat" which has one large bedroom and seperate dining/lounge/kitchen area and bathroom. There are open sided stables, chicken house and a horse arena.

Who we are

  1. Perry is a New Zealander and I, Caroline am English. We moved from England to NZ 9 years ago. We have two children, Ferguson aged nearly 3 and Scarlett just 7 months. We are in the fortunate position to both be able to take considerable time off our work in the finance and commercial property sectors this year and are wildly keen to spend some quality time watching the little ones grow, in England and/or France actually living there rather than just a short holiday! We have travelled extensively and both children are sweet gentle little people who are adaptable and easy going.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

We are situated in Taupaki, close to Kumeu which is a rural area, most of the surrounding properties are "lifestyle" ten acre farmlets or proper large farms giving a lovely rural feel yet not isolated at all. Walking distance is a super school and kindergarten. There are numerous beaches within 30 mins drive - the nearest is only 12 kms away. Auckland City is only 24 kms away - it takes less than 30 mins to get to the nightlife of the city (or work!) off peak. This area is an outdoor persons dream with horseriding, mountain biking, surfing etc all on the doorstep.
