At long last we have found a property! Today it officially became ours. It was love at first sight and ticked all the boxes. I just had to share it with you. And it is only 30 minutes drive from where we live now so I can still keep my job.
The house sits on 2 acres of lawn and gardens. It has lots of gorgeous trees and plenty of room for more daffodils, roses and fruit trees! It is surrounded by market gardens, garden centres, rose nurseries and there is a fabulous cafe five minutes down the road. And I thought I'd mention that there are two quilting stores in town! It is five minutes drive from a lovely river, 20kms from the beach and about one and a half hours drive north of Wellington.
The house feels like it reflects our personalities much more than the home we have sold. And the grounds are park-like. There is lots of history to the property too. In the early 1940's it used to be part of a RNZAF (Royal NZ Air Force) air field!
It has a spa pool which I think will be lovely to soak in during the winter months. I've never had a spa pool before and I have no idea how to look after it! However, the most exciting thing is that is has a self-contained flat which will make the perfect studio space for Mr M & M and I.
Can you tell I'm excited?
