Taiparoro - A rare slice of history in the Avenues

Seeing is believing when viewing this irreplaceable historic property, nestled amongst established lush gardens, as it offers several exciting options for any potential purchaser.

In past lives Taiparoro has been a much loved family home, a venue for weddings and in recent years, a well-regarded bed and breakfast guesthouse, hosting many distinguished and varied guests. Protected under the Historic Places Trust with a Category 2 grading, this gracious Colonial homestead is stately and grand, with clear vistas across the inner harbour to Maungatapu and the Welcome Bay hills.

Built in 1882 by Tauranga Mayor J. C Adams, each of the few subsequent owners have lovingly maintained the classic weatherboard exterior, expansive Kauri floors, lofty panelled ceilings and beautiful feature fireplaces dotted throughout the many rooms.

Taiparoro is an impressive 380sqm property of five bedrooms upstairs, each with ensuite, with one bedroom suite enjoying extensive harbour views, a private lounge and a claw foot bath. Downstairs are three more bedrooms, sharing a bathroom, separate shower and two toilets. The conservatory lounge and large modern kitchen are the centre piece of the home - basking in all day sun and opening out to a beautiful cobbled courtyard garden perfect for growing fresh herbs and vegetables. A large formal lounge with a stunning parquet floor and separate office provide yet more gracious areas to spread out in.

Leave the cars in the double garage or utilise the ample off street parking, because it is only a short stroll to the CBD, restaurants, Tauranga Primary School, Saturday Farmers Market and Memorial Park.

Taiparoro may mean 'stormy sea', but this property offers safe harbour for a discerning and/or enterprising buyer. A beautiful character home offering a warm and welcoming haven for a large or extended family - there is room for everyone.

Take advantage of Tauranga's prime position as a business hub and popular holiday destination!
