Description

Ecological coastal sanctuary


Formerly known as Sandpiper Lodge with a reputation to impress, the enviable lifestyle setting and beautiful surrounds at 841 Takatu Road include some unique features rarely linked to private land ownership in Auckland. Set on 2.81 hectares and located at renowned Tawharanui Peninsula in the northern Hauraki Gulf, the area boasts some of the region's most beautiful white sand beaches, rolling pastures, shingled bays, native forest and regenerating wetlands.

A highlight of this opportunity lies in the tidal estuary on the Title where the fresh water meets seawater, and in the extensive eco habitat and bountiful wildlife that the unique ecosystem supports.

Amid well-established properties and complementing the magnificent views of the estuary bush and surrounding gardens, this private oasis includes a main residence with 7 rooms (all with ensuite bathrooms) plus two 'holiday villas' set away from the primary accommodation and fringe a gorgeous level lawn, groomed to the water's edge.

Rolling lawns, mature trees and a sheltered position are the perfect setting for self-sufficient living, orchards, herb beds and hens. Swim, surf, hike or explore directly from the property's bounds. If you prefer to set the volleyball ball court, break out the cricket bats or pass the rugby ball you need go nowhere for that! Hidden opportunities and hints of 'the good old days' include an in-ground swimming pool, currently 'roofed' for weddings events.

The current layout offers a brilliant platform for a private residence and/or extended family, creatives, professionals, nature lovers, lifestyle retreat and those with a nose for an exciting income opportunity. The property needs TLC to take it back to its full glory or a renovation for the more adventurous.

On a fully sealed road, metres from Christian Bay and close to boutique Matakana Village, this peaceful community is within 15 minutes of Omaha Beach Golf Course and the restaurants, markets, vineyards and outdoor leisure pursuits that the Matakana coast is famous for.
