"Oakdale" - full of history and grace!


"Oakdale" homestead and its 150-hectare grazing farm, in five titles, was established in (circa) 1900 by the first of Puhoi's early settlers. Held and cherished by the same family for over 120 years, the vendors now wish to downsize providing a new family a once in a generation opportunity (Tender (unless sold prior), 4pm 2 Jully 2020).

The elegant Kauri home was entirely renovated and tastefully restored in 2000, with classic period features on display throughout. Notably, elevated 13-foot board and batten ceilings, large sash windows, leadlight panels, and original Kauri timber floors throughout. A separate lounge and formal dining area, four bedrooms, two well-appointed bathrooms (including a master en-suite) with freestanding claw foot baths, and a Waterford Stanley stove (with wetback), all contribute to the timeless appeal of this enchanting home. Yet more room for work, sleep, or play is provided by a generous converted loft area and a cute sleep-out or separate office. Outside, the immaculate, hydrangea-fringed gardens are admired from the sun-soaked verandah.

The farm is well subdivided into 13 large paddocks and is well supported by a reliable all year water supply, a good set of cattle & sheep yards, and the original two-stand woolshed, which once housed the first shearing machine in the district!

For those looking for more adventure and chance to be amongst nature's giants; there's a 422-metre long flying fox that soars through some of the biggest Kauri you'll ever experience.

Spectacular views are offered across the Hauraki Gulf to the Coromandel Peninsula, Great Barrier Island, Auckland city, and beyond. Further opportunities abound with the possibility of developing further titles, and for honey production from the large established manuka and native bush plantations.

The property's prime location is undeniable; secluded, yet only a short walk or drive from the historic Puhoi village community, its legendary watering hole, six minutes to sandy beaches, and within 35 minutes of Auckland's CBD
