Executive Waterfront Residence

One of Whakatane's most stately waterfront homes is up for sale for the first time.

The expansive two-storey residence on Muriwai Drive, overlooking the river, has become something of a landmark since its construction in the 1960s, much admired by passers-by for its premium location, coastal outlook and award-winning tropical gardens. To its owners though, it has simply been 'home' and a place in which many memories have been created over the years.

Built with family and entertaining in mind, it sits on a slightly elevated 2148 square metre section and offers 310 square metres of living over two levels. Downstairs is home to two bedrooms, a den, bathroom and internal access triple garaging and carport while upstairs features an expansive kitchen, dining, and living area, complete with an impressive South Island schist fire surround. All rooms look out over the river, including the master bedroom with en suite that is a joy to wake up in with floor-to-ceiling windows that draw in the view.

A concrete terrace runs the length of the upstairs, offering multiple places to sit and enjoy this exclusive location. From here you will see-all and know-all of what goes on at The Heads.

Aside from one lot of alterations, which included extending the terrace to allow for large-scale entertaining, the home is close to original and a true testament to its era. Yet at the same time, it is ahead of its years in the way it encompasses modern day living with great indoor/outdoor flow and an entertainer's kitchen complete with bifolding windows and an outdoor servery.

The house sits on a well-developed and landscaped site where parking is plentiful, and the gardens are stunning. The boat ramp and children's playground are across the road and it's just a short stroll to The Heads or town.

•2148sqm section more or less
