Hidden Waters – Kerikeri Holiday Home
Wrapped around a magnificent stream, the Kerikeri holiday home – ‘Hidden Waters’ includes two separate dwellings, six acres of mature, rock-lined gardens and four acres of covenanted native bush, with the highlight a 14 metre waterfall.
The Homestead is a completely renovated 1920s Californian Bungalow with a huge open plan living area (lounge, dining and reading room), four generous bedrooms, two bathrooms, a third toilet and an outdoor bath. The three metre stud gives a sense of spaciousness, as do the seven sets of French doors, bringing the outside in.
Separated by a high rock wall and mature plantings, the Schoolhouse is a completely renovated, single-bedroom studio. With a large deck the building retains much of its former character as a classroom, including two sets of French doors, magnificent wooden floors and even a blackboard.
The property is 4.09 Ha (10 acres) in size and boasts a series of forest walks to towering kauri, totara and rimu. A meditation platform sits high in the trees. A stream winds through the bush, culminating in rapids and a stunning 14 metre private waterfall, complete with plunge pool – ideal for summer afternoons.
