Retreat to the lake house


Property sold at auction.

Nestled on a private site, this wonderful property offers a deep connection to nature. Mature trees, unexpected lake views, picturesque gardens and sprawling lawns are just part of the appeal. Adding to the joy is Lake Manuwai in the 'backyard'.

A retreat from the chaos of everyday life, this property is secluded and peaceful yet is just 10km from Waipapa or 16km from Kerikeri. Perched lakeside, lucky new owners can indulge in kayaking, swimming and fly fishing on Lake Manuwai - rainbow trout for tea? The fluted rock formations on this enormous man-made lake are very cool.

Providing tremendous character, the three-bedroom, one-bathroom bungalow has leadlight windows, solid timber flooring and high ceilings. A lovely facelift has created further magic, including new carpets, fresh paint and extensive decks. The layout offers flexibility to enjoy it in a manner that suits, currently staged as three-bedrooms plus a second lounge and a study nook, you could easily arrange it as four bedrooms. All the home comforts are in place, including a wood burner and heat pump.

Separate to the main residence is a double garage with a bathroom and office. The office has been used a bedroom and is configured as that now. Some of the garage has been converted to a kitchenette to make what the owners refer to as a sleepout.

There is also scope to further develop the 10,556sqm site. A minor dwelling would be a fantastic idea to enable working from home. Likewise, an inexpensive, trendy 'tiny house' would boost your income.

Further merits of this exceptional property include a big circular driveway, a double garage, an internal laundry, two garden sheds, a water tank and even a playhouse for the children. Of course, the chook house will entice you to buy a few chickens and embrace a free-range lifestyle!

What a privilege to market such a unique property, full of healthy, old-fashioned living. Imagine entertaining or relaxing on the deck with filtered lake views and birdsong to serenade you.
