Description

An idyllic riverfront lifestyle


Positioned riverfront to capture beautiful views is an exciting property with plenty of scope to enjoy it your way. Stunning "River Retreat" feels a million miles from reality, yet is just 15 minutes from Kerikeri and 10 minutes from the Paihia waterfront and all the magic of the Bay of Islands.

Sandy enclaves, trout-fishing and swimming holes - the Waitangi River is a honeypot of activities and fun, and River Retreat holds the key to it all. Two acres of lawns and native plantings entice you to the water below, and dedicated picnic spots are perfect for watching wild ducks, tui, fantails and swans.

This peaceful setting is an escape from busy lives, topped off by incredible sunsets. Architecturally designed, the property has a unique layout, described as an upside down boat! The configuration includes two separate guest suites, reached via a covered walkway (each with own ensuite), a self-contained one-bedroom loft apartment above the garage that could be rented out, plus the main dwelling - bringing the bedroom tally to four. There is also a 50sqm garage and plenty of parking.

This dynamic footprint would be ideal for a family with older kids - offering privacy, before re-joining at mealtimes. It would also be a wonderful holiday home investment for two families - again allowing space before shared BBQs and drinkies into the evening.

River Retreat is currently run as an award-winning Bed & Breakfast. Buyers who wish to continue this lifestyle business will appreciate its impeccable reputation and glowing guest reviews.

The decor throughout is fresh, light and modern, with many superb features such as Jarrah timber floors, expansive decking and attractive macrocarpa feature ceilings. The mezzanine loft hosts a library, office and a relaxing TV room, while downstairs offers light open-plan living with a generous galley kitchen.

Could this be your next chapter in paradise? Delay not, this is a rare opportunity to secure something idyllic! For the full info pack, call David today.
