Escape to coastal paradise

Anchored above Crowles Bay, this incredible waterfront residence took inspiration from a French-Country theme. Seldom reaching real estate pages, this is a legacy property, ready for new owners to thrive.

From bare land, our vendors have moulded 8.5 hectares into a generous property, where scenery captures expansive ocean views, mature landscaping and lush countryside. The 307sqm three-bedroom home is robust and enduring, with considered-design to showcase the ocean views. Cathedral ceilings and hardwood floors set the tone for lively entertaining, while a circular driveway makes a striking first impression.

The property stretches down to the water's edge, enjoying its own vehicle access. Dotted below are yachts in the bay enjoying shelter and calm. Thriving on the land is an array of animals, and horse enthusiasts will appreciate the set-up of 3 tack rooms, troughs in paddocks and a large barn (with workshop and loft).

On the home front, the lounge is the hero room, a favourite place for guests to gather and soak up the views. Every window frames something special outdoors, revealing many wonderful nooks to escape with a book. A large Macrocarpa tree from the property has delivered the front door, structural beams, and a beautiful kitchen benchtop. In the master bedroom with ensuite, big curved windows bring the outside in. The tiled laundry/utility room is practical and spacious, while a loft above the double garage offers multiple uses.

Other land features include a well-producing olive grove, and Manuka sets the scene for 16 beehives. Even the call of Kiwi is heard at night. A rose garden shares colour and aroma, and a chestnut tree illustrates the seasons. All the lifestyle goodies are right here, just five minutes from the marina and 15 minutes from Kerikeri.

What a privilege to market such an exhilarating property! Astute buyers will recognize several investment options, and a waterfront buyer may have just found the perfect oasis to share with family and friends.
