When current owners, Marie and Ken went looking for a home to buy they both agreed they wanted to live in a special recreational setting with waterfront views in Palmerston North city. This is a hard ask in our city at the best of times.
After a long and frustrating search they found 41 Dittmer Drive which met their criteria.
The setting was perfect. As the builder, Ken's criteria was that a luxury family home should earn its keep and be able to provide some income in their retirement. So they got to and had plans architecturally designed and extended the home to allow for operating a Boutique Bed and Breakfast business while adding value as a family home. It meant that every bedroom now has its own ensuite or bathroom which growing families will love.

As retirees, Ken and Marie love the exclusivity of their small lifestyle business of four bedroom accommodation. They meet interesting people from all over the world with whom they keep in contact. Hardly a day goes by when they don't have lively discussion with guests about all manner of things: culture, travel, history, theories, human interaction, music, film, the list goes on. When Ken and Marie want to travel overseas for a couple of months they just block out that period for bookings.
It's that easy if you are interested in a lifestyle business.

From the inside of this stunning five bedroom home you can take in breathtaking sunsets and sunrises while marvelling at views of the river and ranges.
Even now, Ken and Marie are continually surprised by the small pleasures the property brings them: breakfast among the tree tops, coffee or wine on one of the six decks, a view of snow topped Ruapehu, friendly neighbours who wave or chat as they pass, the constantly changing vistas and the variety of walkway users.

They enjoy swimming at the Lido aquatic centre just around the corner, the Esplanade with its miniature railway, the rose gardens, the paddling pool, aviary, and playground to take grandchildren. The variety of sports activities along at Ongley Park never ceases to amaze. For Ken and Marie it is no hardship to cycle the walkway, stretch out their legs for exercise on the path or just watch or catch the trout in the river directly opposite the house.
However, they are selling this unique 5 bedroom family home which is situated in a safe and friendly location. The gym, media lounge, sun-drenched decks, butler's pantry, tradesman's workshop, the list goes on. These are all the reasons why you should take the time to view this special home with Century 21.

Ken and Marie's Bed and Breakfast brings the world to their doorstep and has been an enjoyable experience. The business does not need to be part of the sale.
However, if you have an interest in this home and income opportunity, Ken and Marie will include the intellectual property and future bookings at a very reasonable price.
But all good things draw to an end and Ken and Marie have considered their future and decided to downsize. Hence this wonderful property is on the market.

Take advantage of what Ken and Marie have built up over time. If this sounds like you. Give us a call !
