One of Tauranga's largest homes has been listed for sale for $5.25 million.
The five-bedroom stately home sits on 20,000sqm, boasts a library, games room, cinema and large outdoor pool – and despite its Victorian livery is actually only 10 years old.
It looks as if it's been standing in its grand countrified surroundings since at the early 1800s, but in fact, the rural house was only completed recently and was the work of a British interior designer.
The materials were sourced from all over the globe, and the home features tall ceilings, leadlight windows, impressive fire surrounds and masonry.
The house has 932sq m floor space, six times the average Kiwi house.
Included in the layout is a reception hall, a large kitchen, and formal and informal dining spaces, both inside and out.
The house is being marketed for sale by Oliver Road agents Jason Eves and Cameron Macneil, who last year listed the Tauranga home of former AC/DC drummer Phil Rudd.
The listing price for the Pyes Pa Road home, although high, is a million dollars short of Tauranga's most expensive house sale last year. A three bedroom beachfront home on Oceanbeach Rd in Mt Maunganui sold for $6.3 million.
Pyes Pa is Tauranga's third largest suburb in terms of the total number of residential housing stock, with most of the homes in area constructed post 2010.
According to OneRoof/Valocity data, the median value of houses in the suburb is $729,000.
