This magnificent home gives you 430m2 of living space and is set in 4,302m2 (just over an acre) of attractively laid out tree-studded gardens with a glorious rural backdrop of fields and rolling hills and yet a mere 15 minute drive from Dunedin's Central Business District and Dunedin International Airport.
This charming, timeless 'Tudoresque' style home began its life as a 'Gentlemans Residence' in 1907, with a major two-storey extension in the 1980's followed by extensive sensitive refurbishing and modernising of facilities since 2003 culminating in this totally unique, future-proofed and exciting property that is "The Birches" today.
The character features of this home are almost overwhelming and include the imposing 'grand staircase', timbered panelling and doors, ornate plaster ceilings & cornice, glorious fireplace surrounds and so much more. The kitchen and bathrooms provide all the quality finishing touches modern life demands without losing the charm of this exquisite property. Delightful flooring throughout includes lovely American Oak timber floor in the kitchen and casual dining area.
The house has 5 enormous bedrooms, including four ensuites which offer the opportunity for boutique accommodation if wished. The present owners are currently operating a luxury 5 Star rated bed and breakfast business successfully. The spacious, bright and airy kitchen is equipped to suit the keenest culinary artist yet full of rustic charm and the living and dining rooms, while spacious and grand in style, have a feeling of warmth and life, enhanced by the ample light provided by the leadlight windows throughout.
Generous paved outdoor living areas provide opportunities to relax and enjoy sunny mornings and afternoons surrounded by rural peace.
Adjacent to the house is a massive garaging-workshop complex, capable of housing at least 6 cars. Originally built to house classic cars and facilities to work on them, the 283sqm (approx) garage complex includes having 3 phase power, inspection pit, air tool points, gantry hoist & endless bench space. Complimenting this is the parts and tool storage plus a small kitchen and toilet.

Maybe cars aren't your thing! Consider a redevelopment of the building which could offer extended family accommodation or extra boutique lodgings.

Close proximity to East Taieri Primary School (Decile 9 and zoned) and Pre-school. This property must be seen and is undoubtedly the finest of its kind in Otago.

Buyers over $2million should inspect.
