Idyllically situated on a stunning promontory, this compelling waterfront retreat holds huge appeal for buyers seeking outstanding real estate in a premium location.
Of timeless design and with an over riding sense of style the substantial residence captures the essence of gracious yet understated waterfront living.
The style, charm and ambience are evident from the moment you drive through the gated driveway, and catch your first glimpses of the classical weatherboard villa. From the welcoming entrance lobby the scene is set with expansive yet serene entertaining areas spilling out to inviting paved terraces whilst the kitchen with its rich timbered floors, smooth Carrera marble surfaces, butler's pantry and superb appliances is the perfect hub for family living. The sea is never far away with exquisite views from nearly every room. The magnificent curved stairway sweeps upstairs to a grand master suite, with sitting area, dressing room and luxurious bathroom. This quiet haven with private balcony enjoys the most captivating of seascapes. There are three further bedrooms, all exceptionally spacious and handsomely appointed and with supremely crafted ensuites. Two downstairs spill out onto their own terraces.
Beautiful gardens surround the residence and feature crafted stone walls, meandering paths and quiet sitting areas. And, yes, there is a beach at the bottom of the garden! A stepped pathway leads through bush to a tranquil sandy beach just perfect for beachside entertaining. Small boats and kayaks can be launched here to access the deeper water of Veronica Channel.
Sheltered, warm and with a northerly aspect, this is certainly a home that will satisfy those who expect superior quality, craftsmanship and stylish finesse.
Located a convenient drive from the restaurants, craft outlets and produce market of Paihia, the Russell ferry, the Opua marina and just twenty five minutes from Kerikeri airport with up to five services daily to Auckland, it is easy to enjoy all the benefits the vibrant and growing Bay of Islands has on offer.
Our vendors are eager to pursue country living with room for the children's ponies.
