Versatile riverside living


Auction brought forward to 22nd March 2022 at 292 Great South Road, Takanini, Auckland.

Welcome to tranquil riverside living matched with outstanding architecture and possibilities.

Te Waiau Rere (fast moving water) aptly describes this incredible two-dwelling oasis, positioned to capture native bush and waterfall vistas.

A true masterpiece in the country, this unique listing will appeal to astute buyers keen on versatile living arrangements. The well-designed home will thrill all ages and stages, and the second cottage has two bedrooms and 1.5 bathrooms - ideal for hosting guests or permanent tenants. Generating Airbnb income or work-from-home are possibilities too.

As security gates lead you into a big circular driveway, you are immediately drawn to a feeling of space, peace and plenty. At 8058sqm (nearly 2 acres) plenty of the site is clad in lush bush, keeping the grounds manageable. The irrigated gardens are a showcase in tropical plantings, and a swimming pool plus a sauna are fantastic features. You also have access to the river below.

The main three-bedroom home is full of energy and soul. More functional and inviting than pretentious, you can tell it's been designed for the entertainer. From decks and covered verandas to a terracotta tiled terrace, the vibe is Mediterranean inspired, with relaxed colours to match.

A leisurely day begins with coffee on the east-facing decks, listening to the soft tune of the river and falls. In the afternoon, the terrace off the living area is a welcome respite from the sun. The vaulted ceilings add a wow-factor to the open plan living and dining area.

Home comforts are many, including a modern kitchen, master bedroom with ensuite and balcony (upstairs), and two fireplaces (gas in the bedroom & woodfire in the living).

Back outdoors, a standalone garage offers 4-car parking, along with plenty of space for a boat or motorhome. The site is fully fenced, and all the amenities and hospitality awaits at Waipapa just 4km away, or Kerikeri (10km).

Not many can boast a waterfall in the backyard! Call Jane to view today.
