- About this property
Offers over $750,000 ConsideredProperty ID WHC26159Sub-Tropical Paradise
A one of a kind home that perfectly showcases the integration of many elements, from the kauri lancet church windows to slate tile floors, country cottage gardens to a canopy of native pohutukawa, raw native timber to thatched ceilings, and the tropical salt water pool to the natural volcanic rocks, all reflecting of a sub-tropical home of distinction.
The home was built in the 1980's using a combination of new and recycled materials. As you enter through the stable door your eyes will be drawn to the innate stained glass windows, rich rimu kitchen, skylights, copper fittings, french doors and polished hard wood floors before falling upon the elevated views out over Reotahi Bay. The open plan living flows outdoors to the summer lounge that is private and sheltered all year round - the perfect place for a day bed as you relax overlooking the deep crystal blue pool among the natural rocks and green ferns. With three large bedrooms, the master suite opens out to a private deck protected by the ancient pohutukawa on the banks of the stream below, the ensuite bathroom features a claw foot bath where you can soak away your woes while absorbing the view of the native bush.
Set upon a large section of 2750sqm there is a garden of fantasy with rambling lawns, organic vegetable garden, volcanic boulders, native trees, cobbled bricks and space to further develop...perhaps build a beach cottage for the extended family, or a big shed for yourself?
Spoilt by location, Reotahi is the gateway to many outdoor activities with a selection of spots to explore kayaking, swimming or snorkeling, boat launching facilities, walking and tramping tracks around the coast. Only 5 minutes drive (2.5km) to the local Whangarei Heads School (years 1 to 8), the Parua Bay village is a 10 minute drive (8.5km) and Whangarei City Centre is 32 minutes (28km).
