A Hawke's Bay Treasure


Located in an elevated position on the foothills of Te Mata Peak, "Appin" is a stunning property offering one of the most spectacular settings you will find. Bathed in all-day sunshine and set amidst landscaped gardens, the property takes full advantage of the breath-taking 360 degree views out to the Napier coastline and across the Heretaunga Plains to the western ranges.

When first impressions count, this property will impress from the entrance. Approaching the house up the grand sweeping driveway offers the first glimpses of the landscape designed gardens which include manicured hedges and lawns, crazy-paved pathways and retaining walls, extensive terraced vegetable gardens and a multitude of established specimen trees and fruit and citrus trees.

Step through the double wooden doors into the Italian stone foyer and you are immediately struck by the seamless flow out to stunning outdoor living which along with the beautiful gardens also features a swimming pool and tennis court.

The 1960's bungalow has been extensively modernised under the guidance of renowned architect Paris Magdalinos over the years. It features open plan kitchen and informal living plus formal dining and living spaces all opening out through large sliding doors to a sweeping north facing terrace with an open fire. There is plenty of space for family with five large bedrooms, two bathrooms plus a study. Other property features include the underground wine cellar and an extensive garden irrigation and drainage system.

There is the option to purchase the surrounding 1.8ha as well. This has an established building platform with privacy, stunning views and a separate driveway.

"Appin" is a Hawke's Bay treasure and it is easy to see how this property has featured in numerous home and garden magazines and garden tours over the years. After lovingly tending this special home for 36 years the owners want to hand over to a new generation to enjoy.
