This family home is nestled in a beautiful, private setting with splendid sea views towards Ponui Island, yet is only 15 minutes drive from the ever-popular Onetangi Beach. Orapiu Wharf is located at the end of the road, offering daily sailings to Auckland and the Coromandel throughout the summer making this the ultimate holiday location.
With three big bedrooms and three bathrooms, the house is in excellent condition and has been lovingly maintained by the same family for 30 years. The roomy, open-plan living space feels light and airy, with its high stud ceilings and bay window that makes the most of the mesmerising view. The substantial deck wraps around the house from east to west, allowing for ultimate outdoor enjoyment from sunrise to sunset.
An alluring, rolling rural scene can also be enjoyed from the kitchen area. Two sizeable bedrooms are on the main floor. The master, with ensuite, looks out to sea and the second is primed for the west-facing sunsets. Downstairs, the third bedroom, with its own deck, is a large space that also works as a bunk room or rumpus room and allows for a home that comfortably sleeps 10 people. It has the added bonus of a bathroom and separate entry on the same floor. There’s plenty of storage space under the house for all the outdoor toys, as well as turning space on the driveway and parking for the boat and two cars. Also included is a mooring, which (*on approval from Auckland Transport*) may be transferred from the current owners.
This wonderful home is so close to the sea for a spot of fishing or swimming. A track leads down to the road from the house, where it’s about a one-minute walk to the water. It’s not long till summer. CV $1.1 million.
