Description

The harbour's the host


A beautiful drive around the edge of Ohiwa Harbour brings you to this quiet little enclave of cottages on a crooked finger of land poking into the harbour. Far from the highway, the silence is broken only by a cheerful tui singing in a nearby tree. This 2732sqm (more or less) section spans the width of the peninsula, so it has beaches in front of and at the rear of the property. The two-storey home in between has the feel of a great holiday home while retaining all the comforts of a permanent residence. With three bedrooms upstairs, plus a lounge/bedroom downstairs, three bathrooms and awesome living and entertaining areas. There are also two cabins, or tiny houses, on the property, also one with a pull down bed. A large covered barbecue area is at the front of the property, and this has power to run lighting and a fridge and also provides a place to hook up the power supply for a caravan. The home is clad in weathered marine ply and Colorsteel. Garaging will not be a problem with an internal access tandem garage that could easily fit three cars. There are views of the harbour from every room in the house, even the bathroom, but they are most spectacular from the open-plan lounge, dining and kitchen areas. Large, glass sliding doors open from the north and the south walls leading out to two generous balconies. These not only give you clear views of the harbour and ocean in the direction they face, including Whale and White islands, but you can also look back through the house where the view in the other direction is framed. Among the modern design features that make this house special is stainless steel balustrades with zigzag rigging wire on the inside staircase and also on the balconies. In the kitchen, custom made, stainless steel benchtops have double sinks seamlessly moulded into the design. The master bedroom has a walk-in wardrobe and an ensuite. A hot tub in the backyard, plenty of fruit trees, including an avocado, a boat ramp just minutes down the road and much more make this home an absolute paradise.
