Ruby Bay is known for its magnificent sea views and rolling landscape, its prolific, beautiful gardens and a great lifestyle. This home has all of these and more.
At the end of prestigious Korepo Road, this established property reflects Ruby Bay. On top of the ridge, it captures all-day sun from sunrise over the Bay to sunset over the rolling hills.
Yet with all the wonderful views, this is an extremely private home. A winding drive runs through the elegant, mature garden to a courtyard. Wooden double front doors lead to a light entranceway with kitchen, dining area and sunroom adjoining. Double doors lead outside to patio and garden, all looking out over the sea.
This home is cleverly warm. Expansive windows provide extensive sun heating. When not shining (which is rare in Ruby Bay), underfloor heating in the main living areas and a wood fire in the lounge make for a cosy home in any weather.
The master bedroom is away from the main areas, with patio doors to trellised garden and sea views. Past the study and other two bedrooms, and beyond the double garage, is the guest wing: a separate living area with two double bedrooms, bathroom and lounge, perfect for family or extended guests keen to enjoy the wonderful Tasman.
The solar-heated landscaped pool, vegetable garden, fruit trees and rolling lawn create a serene, calming environment. There is a huge workshop for that large project, whether cars, woodworking, painting, or even space for the teenagers.
Close to Mapua and with all the urban amenities, but with privacy, sea and rural views, and room to breathe. Ruby Bay at its best.
