Maples and Orchids.. Unique Lifestyle

  • 3 Beds
  • 2 Baths
  • 2 Cars

Lifestyle and opportunity go hand in hand in Joyce Road. A proven nursery supplying cut blooms to export and domestic markets. A bush-clad setting where kereru visit; space for more horticulture or horses; and a step back in time with the home. You have to see it to appreciate everything here.
Wistful memories of Minnesota maples and barn architecture bring rimu character and respect of craftsmen to the fore with rustic charm. Traditional board and batten outside, rimu throughout inside and flagstone flooring that stretches outside to embrace a swimming pool and barbecue corner. With verandah grace, patios and rose beds; plus more than 40 maples, there's even a Japanese-inspired water garden.
Detailed inbuilt furniture; arched joinery and cabinetry you don't see any more this house is unique; one of a kind. With separate bedroom wings, upstairs den for the men; study nooks and cosmetic counters the heart of this home links life with leather-couch fireside comfort and an invitation to linger around the dining table.
With pulleys and trusses plus a dovecote on the roofline; a separate garage continues the Minnesota theme barn doors, sleep-out overhead and scope to create self-contained living if B&B is in mind. For added income, there's a separate, one-bedroom cottage down in the gully near the creek. Spring water and ponga bush walks; there's even a secret waterfall to explore cicada nirvana.
The work-horse aspect includes four, twin tunnel houses housing thousands of orchids - all individually irrigated and ready for the next season from April to November. It's proven profitability, plus a three-bay packhouse with tea-room amenities. Next door to all this there's scope for more horticulture or a setting for dressage, jumps and grazing.
Your choice, your opportunity the owners have already bought - ready to end their 20-year lifestyle amid the maples of Maple Hill Orchids.
