Undoubtedly one of Taranaki’s most significant homes, Wentworth is an iconic residence sure to capture your imagination. Magnificently occupying a rare view point, the Victorian villa built in 1896 sits proudly on a 1060sqm (more or less) landholding. Rich in its origins, the property typifies the integrity and craftsmanship of its age.

The stately exterior features a classic weatherboard facade, bay windows and wide verandas. Stepping inside the home you are greeted by intricate cornicing, grand archways and chandeliers. Walking through the wide hallway on polished rimu floorboards, your attention is captured by its proportions as your eye works its way towards the staircase with leadlight feature window.

Featuring five bedrooms upstairs, each with its own unique viewpoint of the ocean, mountain or landscape. The master bedroom is complimented by a traditionally presented ensuite with a stunning claw bath. The height of the ceilings throughout the home allows the darker wood to become a main feature allowing the light that falls in the sash windows to fill each space. A main living, dining and kitchen area all give way to the nearby veranda access. The formal lounge is impressive with its solid brick frame that houses the wood burner creating an inviting room for relaxation.

The second bathroom downstairs offers convenience and functionality attributed to the modern home. Finally, a generous third living space with an adjacent sunroom provides the option of an office space. Take your pick of spaces to entertain in from the spa to the grape-laden courtyard with a pizza oven. Perhaps you would prefer a veranda vista out beyond the green paddocks next door. Not only can three cars be safely stored in the partially lined garage, there is also the bonus of room for a campervan or off-street parking at the top end of the driveway. Scarcely do properties of Wentworth's stature and originality endure; this is an opportunity for a buyer with an eye for detail and appreciation of history.
