This stunning two storey, nine bedroom home includes five award winning bed and breakfast suites. Although only a one hour drive (approx.) to the bustling metropolis of Auckland, this beautiful oasis lies in complete peace and quiet. The best of both worlds.
The current owner uses it as a three-bedroom home upstairs, with five luxury bed and breakfast suites downstairs. The one and two bedroom units each have their own full Bathroom, Refrigerator, Smart TV, Safe, Patio and gorgeous natural views. TripAdvisor.com has consistently rated this as the top rated bed and breakfast in the Warkworth and Matakana Coast regions. This year they also won TripAdvisor's coveted '2017 Certificate of Excellence'.
This lovely property is beautifully positioned on 5.5 hectares (more or less) of spectacular contoured land and covenanted native bush, and located on the southern boundary of the thriving town of Warkworth.
As you approach the architect designed home, you notice how its Western Red Cedar blends beautifully with the surrounding native bush. The front door opens to a large lobby and then onto an enormous, high ceiling living room. The wrap-around balcony showcases spectacular 180+ degree views.
The vista stretches out over green valleys, all the way to the beautiful east coast, from Little Barrier and Kawau Islands to the Coromandel Peninsula. Even with these wide-open views, this spot is very private. The north-facing aspect means that the home gets optimal warmth and light - and one can watch both the sunrise and sunset from the balcony.
Next door lies the stunning Parry Kauri Park, with 800 year old Kauri trees. A natural stream on the property leads into the Mahurangi River mangroves, which attract a great richness of life.
Warkworth and the nearby Matakana village boast popular country markets, boutique restaurants, wineries, and exclusive retail shopping.
