Stunning waterfront living

Auction (unless sold prior)

On Site, 12pm Wed 10 Feb 2021.

This is spectacular seafront living - a spacious, light-filled, contemporary home of high quality designed for beachside pleasures, and for living to the rhythms of tide and seasons. It is elevated for views and tidal security, protected by a gabion stone wall.

Built in 2008 to high standards and designed (house and garden) for no-fuss upkeep, this superb home takes full advantage of sun and views with skylights, picture windows to frame the seascape and doors that stack open for indoor-outdoor living and sea air.

As well as three bedrooms, plus study, you have the bonus of a separate sleepout/studio with its own bathroom, providing B&B income, or extra family/visitor accommodation.

The generous 197 square metres of living space includes two lounge areas, giving separate places for adults and children.

The lounge/dining areas open to another 60 square metres of elevated deck and, in addition, a superb viewing platform at the end of the garden gives close-up views of seaside happenings.

The master bedroom is nicely away from the rest of the house, with a spacious en-suite. Cooks will enjoy the spacious kitchen, tasteful and practical with its stainless-steel bench and laminated bamboo joinery.

The section of 1,083 square metres is fenced at the back where there's lawn and a dedicated barbeque area, incorporating a pizza oven and spa pool or summer night enjoyment.

By building a house raised on H5 timber piles and investing in a robust gabion rock cage wall shared with neighbours, the owners have provided maximum protection against tide and weather.

Cladding is Eterside weatherboard with mono-pitch Colorsteel roof. Hot water is solar, with gas califont for the studio.

Parking and storage (huge area under the raised house) are generous, including a space for the studio occupant. The location speaks for itself, so close to the cafes and restaurants of Mapua and with boat launching just as handy and your choice of lovely walks and bike rides.
