Description

Private waterfront sanctuary


Located on a peaceful peninsula, just five minutes' drive from Mapua, this exceptional 1.27 hectare property is bordered by the Waimea Inlet and an Esplanade Reserve, which extends out to the shoreline.

The property is sunny, sheltered and extremely private with no houses nearby and broad unobstructed views which cannot be built out. It includes a charming 280 square metre home in a glorious parklike setting, a second garage with a separate driveway and a fully compliant, 42 square metre salt water swimming pool.

The outlook is mesmerising as it sweeps over the Inlet and the long curve of the Richmond Ranges and eastern hills. To the west-northwest, the view extends over pasture, vineyards and gently rolling hills to the Western Ranges.

Designed by Cecil Stokes and built in 1968 by Henk Gerritsen, the solidly constructed home features native rimu flooring throughout and comprises a living room, a formal dining room, an open-plan kitchen and breakfast room, a study, a sitting room/library, a master suite, four additional bedrooms, a second bathroom, shower room and a laundry/utility room.

A 150 metre deep bore on the property provides water to the house and garden irrigation system. With the addition of fencing, the pasture would be ideal grazing for sheep.

There is a conservation covenant on a small piece of land near the shore of the Waimea Inlet, which has very high wildlife values. The vendors have been restoring the native vegetation here for the past 15 years and more recently it has become part of a Department of Conservation and Community Partnership project.

If you are looking for estuary frontage and absolute privacy in a serene peninsula location, contact Daniel Reed for further information.
