- About this property
IconicProperty ID WAI21070Our Vendors have bought, so they offer for sale this updated 1940s Omiha retreat to the fortunate new owners. The home is situated only fifty metres from Kauakarau Bay where there's safe swimming, excellent fishing and a public reserve with a playground for the kids to run wild, then be treated to a barbeque afterwards. Dogs need a good run? You're permitted to take them off-lead on Kauakarau and Omiha beaches as well as the trails at nearby Te Whau peninsula.
The home itself offers beautiful bay views across Tamaki Strait to the mainland from the upstairs lounge and outside deck, or try to resist the gorgeous vista and work quietly in the adjacent study. Here, enjoying an evening cocktail and watching the sun's warm glow setting in the west will be a privilege indeed. Downstairs comprises two large bedrooms, renovated bathroom, designer kitchen and compact dining/media room leading to an expansive deck for al fresco dining and relaxation.
The fully landscaped garden and flat lawns (twice featured in the Jassy Dean Garden Festival) include vege beds, passionfruit, lemons, limes and even bananas! Wake each morning to delightful sights and calls of large Kereru and Tui feeding amongst the mature trees. A double garage with ample off street parking for cars and a small boat complete the picture.
Stroll to the Rocky Bay Hall on a Thursday for afternoon tea, Locals' drinks on the first Friday of the month or enjoy a morning coffee at the weekend cafe. Tucked away from the crowds in peak season, yet you're only a short drive to the many renowned vineyards as well as the golf course, sports fields and Onetangi beach. A permanent base or a holiday home? This could be your good fortune to decide. CV $860,000
