Stretching along the length of Tamaki Road and around to Glendowie, residents of Auckland's Eastern Beaches enjoy beach walks, waterfront cafes, bustling urban centres and quiet greenspaces. Rangitoto Island is visible from most homes for sale in the Eastern Bays, including established family homes, architecturally-stunning residences and beach-view apartments.
First stop on Tamaki Drive, Orakei is an oceanside village, boutique and beautiful. Its peninsula touches the waters of the Waitemata Harbour and Hobson Bay and has incredible views of the city skyline. Despite being minutes from the city centre, Orakei is a tight-knit community with locally run supermarkets, cafes, bakeries and even a farmers market. Magnificent homes, amongst the country's most expensive, are available in Orakei but also modest mid-century homes ready to be modernised.
Those who call Mission Bay home love its beachside vibe, proximity to the city, promenade cafes and iconic flowering pohutukawa trees. The popular public reserve and beach have remained largely unchanged over the years. The majority of homes for sale in Mission Bay are established properties built before 1970 with plenty of character and mid-century style. Recent residential developments have added some sophisticated chic apartments to the suburb's housing stock.
Kohimarama is a less-densely populated option for families and commuters with its proximity to the beach, access to bike lanes into the city, transport and schooling options. The relaxed local community feel is quintessentially kiwi and most shops and cafes are within walking distance from the suburb's residential homes. Buyers looking for homes for sale in Kohimarama will find renovated stand-alone homes, recently-built architectural houses and modern units.
St Heliers Bay is the village of the Eastern Bays, it's a favourite residential area due to its tight-knit community, family friendliness, proximity to the CBD and of course, the beach. Summers are bustling with residents and visitors alike, enjoying the safe swimming beach, parks and promenade cafes. Property on the market in St Heliers is a mix of family homes on large sections, new apartments and townhouses.
On the Eastern side of the bays, property in Glendowie is tightly-held by long term residents keen to retain the character of the leafy suburb.
