19 Ye Old Mill Road

Secluded Waterfront Sanctuary. ‘Ye Old Mill Castle’ is one of just seven other residences in a tightly held enclave located midway between the small unspoiled coastal townships of Awakino and Mokau in the Waitomo District, Ye Old Mill Road ends at the gates of this very unique property. Seclusion and privacy are evident from the entrance as only the hewn cedar garage doors are initially visible. Enter through the large arched gates into a spacious, curved courtyard and be captivated by the beautifully crafted stone exterior of the house. The stone is a sedimentary rock called greywacke and was hand selected from the Pio Pio quarry and laid by English stonemasons here to craft the stonework at the Beehive, Cornwall slate was used on the bell style roof edging. The stone exterior, concrete block interior combined with a portion of the house being built into the ground offers improved thermal dynamics. The house consists of 3 good sized bedrooms all with built-in robes overlooking the courtyard and accessed via a wide hallway with a walk-through storeroom at the end allowing for internal access from the ample double garage and workshop space. The living area faces north with ocean glimpses and is bright and spacious with a wood heater and a fully equipped modern kitchen.
