Magnificently 'Marooned'


This property will be sold plus GST (if any).

A 'masterpiece' Bay of Plenty waterfront property offering a location and quality of life without equal. This 3.6448ha almost island is anchored to the mainland by a bridge at its base and completely surrounded by estuary and wetlands. Tidal waters lap the water front and you live with the sparkling sea, the interesting outlook and birdlife an estuary frontage offers, inviting a quiet paddle or a spot of fishing off the bottom of the garden. A unique slice of paradise deserves a unique living environment. Arrive through security gates and via a curved road through the avocado orchard before the drive dips to the magnificent home which complements, and is complemented by, its glorious coastal setting. Created without compromise, from landscaping by a Chelsea Flower Show award gold winner, to the highly effective use of West Coast Schist, cedar and plaster over aerated concrete. This property displays beautifully honed native and exotic timbers and stunning fossil studded jurastone tiles inside. The row of schist pillars supports a long structure which settles in the sheltering lee and keeps those who live within constantly in touch with the beautiful outdoors. You will appreciate the attention to detail in every aspect of this dwelling.

The 753m2 home (including a loggia with fireplace near the pool and other outdoor living and boardwalks) was designed with the spacious spectacularly equipped kitchen as its welcoming heart. High quality appliances will meet every cook's every need and the huge concealed pantry enhances the already copious work spaces and benches. Its slight elevation allows you to gaze across the living areas to the estuary.

Dining fans out either side of the kitchen; one side a casual space, the other a light and large formal dining room with extra high stud. Living areas front the sparkling water, two linked spaces divided by a 2.2 tonne soapstone fireplace which retains amazing heat. Surround sound enhances your personal or entertaining pleasure. Bedrooms encompass a family wing with lounge and a guest suite on the ground floor. The upper floor is accessed from the massive foyer (a work of art in itself) and reserved for adults. The master suite is a chalet influenced haven with marble tiled bathroom and library, with walls of wardrobes and dressing room space. A large landing makes a good gym or small lounge; the bedroom balcony invites you to revel in the views.

The 160 avocado trees, a utility shed and two bedroom cottage enhance the opportunities on one of the Bay of Plenty's most peacefully located and prestigiously appointed properties. The Plummers Point enclave is highly valued by its residents who enjoy peaceful coastal living with Tauranga city convenience hardly fifteen minutes away.

Location:

Few regions in New Zealand or the world for that matter have as much to offer as the Bay of Plenty. From the gentle harbour waters to its surf beaches, its fishing and diving grounds to the scenic bush, the Bay is as much a quiet recreational playground as it is a thriving business and rural community. Key economic elements for the region include Tourism, Horticulture (predominately Kiwifruit and Avocado production), Viticulture, Pastoral farming, Forestry, Housing and Holiday Makers. The rapid growth in the area provides a vibrant living environment from job opportunities to business prospects with a sustainable future.

Tauranga as a city is one of the fastest, if not fastest growing cities in New Zealand. With a mixture of beautiful scenery, great beaches, cafes, restaurants and nightspots it is more than a city it is a lifestyle. The award winning schools also provide a key reason why Tauranga is proving to be such an attractive destination for both ex Kiwi's and migrants as a place to set up their new life in New Zealand.
