Description

Waiheke Waterfront - mooring


Maybe once in a decade, if you're lucky, does one of these nine tightly held properties, that borders the reserve above the beach at Picnic Bay, become available. After 27 years as a much enjoyed family holiday home, no. 61 is now looking for a new family, a new generation.

Picnic Bay is a quiet, relatively unknown west facing beach and boat mooring area on the Island. It offers everything you would want from a beach house. Lots of sun, all tide swimming, a sandy beach, a mooring for boaties (included in the sale), plus a lot more. At the end of the road, a km away, is a boat launching ramp with a large floating jetty; ideal for loading /unloading the launch. If you don't own a boat of any size, this is the perfect excuse to buy one. Very suitable for a Sealegs boat - one lives next door and could be friends. Also on the other side of the breakwater (pictured), is to be built a floating marina.

Some of the locals have provided a moored raft out from the beach, much to the delight of the young people. It provides endless fun as a swimming destination and sunbathing/diving platform. A few locals last year also generously built an extensive rock seawall which will provide erosion protection from any future rising seas.

No. 61 is a full quarter acre, 1011sqm site with a basic but sturdy three bedroom home. It enjoys excellent sea views plus easy access across Esslin Road grass reserve down to the sand. There is ample parking for a boat and tents in the backyard. Over the years, most of these 9 properties have morphed into substantial homes and this no doubt will be the eventual destiny of no. 61. Use it now as a simple bach to enjoy and perhaps develop later into a fabulous place to live.

A real bonus is that a new bus service, later in the year, will be providing transport past this location from both the Matiatia wharf ferry from the CBD and the Kennedy Point car ferry from Half Moon Bay. There will be a stop close to Esslin Road.

Now is the time to secure this very desirable waterfront position at Picnic Bay.
