Luxurious paradise in Western Bay

Tags: Rural

A home of exceptionally high quality, set within an expansive section providing easy access for passionate golfers to the local course, offers an exciting lifestyle opportunity in the Western Bay of Plenty.


The 770sqm property located on an expansive one-hectare section on the edge of the Omokoroa golf course has attracted keen interest from locals and people further afield wanting to claim a pocket of the Bay’s location, and a property of a standard not always seen on the market.

Bayleys agent Brent Trueman says 59D Western Avenue has been constructed to an exceptionally high standard, with concrete floors on not only the bottom but first floor, imparting a well-founded sense of solidity to its construction.

“From that solid construction the build has encompassed the best of everything, including the copper pointed cedar weatherboards and the triple layer of cedar roof shingles and copper spouting, and of course double glazing throughout. There is a level of quality and endurance to the home that you don’t see every day.”

Particular attention has been paid to how the six-bedroom property is located, from a tree lined drive and approach, to the north-easterly views that extend over the local golf course to the Tauranga Harbour and the Coromandel ranges in the distance.

The owners will enjoy having their fruit bowl supplement from the property’s orchard supporting 19 varieties of fruit trees, nuts, and vines, well sheltered by the established surrounding trees.

The well-planned home ticks every box for making the most of a Bay of Plenty lifestyle. This starts at the front door, with a warm, welcoming atrium entrance extending to the generous living areas, doused in natural light and optimising the gentle Western Bay of Plenty climate by offering plenty of indoor-outdoor flow.

This is enhanced, thanks to the home’s covered outside area, that encourages year-round alfresco dining outside the family room. The covered area comes complete with a social open fireplace and in-place barbeque that will encourage the summer entertaining to stretch well into the winter months.

The sun’s progress can be easily avoided over the hottest days of summer, or followed during the cooler winter months, thanks to the generous outdoor areas. This extends to the fully in-ground pool adjoining the home which comes with its own shade house.

For the active family keen on swimming and golf, the home’s tennis court completes the trifecta of sports on hand, complete with lights for night games, and a pavilion for social get-togethers post-match.

Despite the home’s deep sense of privacy and appealing rural-coastal outlook, its Western Bay of Plenty location places it within comfortable reach of the region’s attractions, with Mount Maunganui only 27km away, Katikati 23km, and the Tauranga CBD 20km.

Families are well served by access to the region’s top schools with Girls’ and Boys’ College in Tauranga an easy bus ride away and Omokoroa Point Primary School only 3km distant.

The home’s hot water system is serviced through a geothermal bore which also provides underfloor heating throughout the ground and first floor, including the covered outdoor area, making the Bay’s mild winters even more tolerable.

The provision of a media room, guest accommodation, and the garden pavilion are all in keeping with the home’s status, ensuring any family has as much space and activities on hand as ever needed.

Brent Trueman says he had the pleasure of marketing the home the first time it went on the market not long after it was completed in 2008 and appreciates the chance to revisit it.

“The exceptionally high standard of construction and fit-outs continue to stand the test of time in this coastal environment – the home looks as good as it did the day it was completed and proves to be a very liveable space you would want to share with family and friends, with the space to do so.”
