A local landmark, with a vibrant and diverse history is poised to captivate prospective buyers with an appreciation for unique real estate.
Originally a schoolhouse from the 1930s, 2 Pinestead Reach was thoughtfully relocated to the site in the 1980s. Acquired by British entertainer Ronnie Ronalde in 1988, the property retained its original charm and became known as Whistler's Lodge.
“It’s one of those properties that has the wow-factor. Every time you go inside you notice something different. There are original details that the present owners have done a lot of work on to bring back to life” says Bayleys salesperson Louise Thomson.
Imbued with the passion of its current owners, the property seamlessly blends vintage features with modern comforts. The four-bedroom home, three-bathroom home is spaciously designed for contemporary living, with inviting spaces for relaxing in.
“It’s perfect for family living, with a modern kitchen, butler's pantry and large laundry. It has everything you need, all while retaining the original vibe and character.”
The remarkable property sits on 1.2 hectares of land, with expansive landscaped grounds that have played host to a number of family gatherings, celebrations and long lunches by the stunning pool.
The 100sqm deck offers panoramic views of the lush lawns and surrounding countryside. Additionally, the private pool complex boasts a wood-fired pizza oven, chiminea, and covered patio for memorable outdoor experiences.
“It's got fantastic indoor-outdoor flow. It’s the perfect place to sit with friends, have a drink and take in the view, while the kids play in the pool.”
With two spacious living areas, the upper level serves as an ideal retreat for kids or teenagers, but the potential doesn’t end there.
Alongside the main residence, Whistler's Lodge includes a two-bedroom sleepout, a one-bedroom sleepout, a 72sqm garage with WiFi and power, and a 'She-Shed' provides the perfect backdrop to enjoy hobbies or artistic pursuits.
“Those sleepouts are perfect to accommodate extended family or friends, or double as a great work-from-home space.”
“Your imagination is the limit.”
Located just a short drive from Silverdale, and with the upcoming Penlink onramp just a two-minute drive away, Whistler's Lodge offers the perfect balance of seclusion and accessibility around 30 minutes from Auckland’s CBD.
“You’re so close to the Silverdale shops and the ever-expanding Hibiscus Coast, as well as being 15 minutes from all of the beaches. It feels like you’re a million miles away but with everything in reach.”
Whether you’re drawn to its character, picturesque landscapes, or the myriad of opportunities, this unique property with its captivating narrative and diverse features, beckons those who seek a distinctive lifestyle in the heart of Stillwater.
