Once upon a time


Fall in love with this most charming cottage set within a lovely garden, espaliered apple trees and even a fishpond nestled in a rockery and established trees. Located in the highly desirable and sought after Central Avenues, the meticulous presentation and iconic character of this 1930s era property will excite those who love the warmth and beauty of heritage homes.

With charcoal painted weatherboards highlighting white, traditional paned joinery, Frog Cottage - The Gingerbread House as it is lovingly referred to by locals - is a rare jewel retaining all the charisma and grace of yesteryear. Plaster ceilings defined by dark stained exposed timber beams, authentic panelled doors and original rimu floors complement the stylish, eclectic interior throughout this unique home where glamourous chandeliers light the way. A spacious lounge warmed by a brick framed open fire adjoins a sun soaked dining room where French doors open out to a delightful paved patio and courtyard perfect for dining al fresco any time of the day or evening. Two large bedrooms echo the nostalgic appeal of this home and share a family bathroom complete with a large claw foot bath, of course.

This property has only ever been offered for sale twice before in 90 years, the romantic character is often sought but rarely found in Tauranga.

Positioned in the heart of arguably one of the most prime central locations, it has easy access to a wide variety of amenities, great schools, the CBD, local sport and recreation facilities and nearby Memorial Park. Whether you are seeking to downsize, want a unique home, or are looking for an asset suitable for boutique accommodation, such a delightful home in this location is a golden opportunity for an astute buyer.

View this fairy tale opportunity today - fall in love and live happily ever after.
