About this listing
Rated by National Geographic's International Travel Magazine as one of the best coastlines in the world. This awesome property has a paved driveway to a white sandy beach you could call your own. This unique and private slice of coastal real estate is protected, along with the neighbouring property, by covenants for the established native bush and birdlife. No public road access and only one other private vehicle access to the beautiful Tauwhara Bay. The quality Canadian cedar and brick multi-level home, has been built with the environment in mind tucked away and blending in so that it is hard to spot from the beach.
On entry you are wowed by the awesome views from the open plan living areas and when you can draw your eyes away from the ocean, you will see the beautiful home has been built to exacting standards, with Italian chandeliers, high vaulted ceilings and featuring heart Rimu timber throughout. The guttering is handmade to add strength and asphalt shingles have been laid on the roof. The designer kitchen is centrally located facing out to sea and boasts Norwegian granite bench tops and underfloor heating as does all the tiled areas apart from the decadent spa pool room. Picture yourself on the North facing deck, wine in hand, overlooking this aquatic wonderland with a pod of dolphins frolicking in the bay or Orca. The family are catching snapper on the beach or snorkelling the secluded reef, maybe the dinghy was launched and its crayfish from your bay for dinner. As the sun goes down and the song of the Tui is replaced by the morepork call...the dramatic under lighting of the magnificent Pohutakawa comes into play...would you want to be anywhere else in the world?
The adjoining block could also be acquired to complement the legacy and secure absolute privacy.
Is this the opportunity to own a stunning coastal legacy?
