Huge views, outstanding location with an upside


The spectacular coastal, city and rural views from the beautifully sited home are almost matched by the options provided by a high quality near new shed beside the house.

The home grounds occupy the upper plateau of this 2.1270-hectare property with four well fenced grazing paddocks sloping below, perfect for a few cattle, sheep or horses. A strip of land abuts a tree fringed spring fed stream. The loading bay and yards are at the bottom of the sweeping concrete drive. It winds gently up past yet another shed (ideal for the boat, tractor or horse float) to arrive at a huge aggregate concrete parking area outside the home and the new shed.

The upside twist with this property is that it was built by its registered Master Builder owner. An oversight at the time of construction saw the necessary inspections completed however the final inspection was delayed. In that time the local body changed its policy on the exterior cladding system that had been previously approved. While the other buildings on the property are compliant the end result is that the final Code of Compliance for this beautiful home was never issued. The vendors have reflected this in the asking price.

Built to embrace the outlook the 20-year-old home has living areas flanked by patios so you can follow the sun and shelter. The master suite enjoys lovely morning sun, a huge guest suite at the other end of the home benefits from afternoon rays. The garage is so deep you could fit four cars.

While there is ample room in the home, the 93sqm (approx.) ply lined shed immediately extends your options. It encompasses a double garage with a large space to the side. Already plumbed and with its own toilet there is scope here for serious hobbies, maybe conversion for paid accommodation or extended family.

On a clear day you can see White Island in one direction, down Tauranga Harbour past Bowentown in the other, Mayor Island hovering on the horizon. If it's an opportunity you are looking for then you have just found it.
