While Napier currently has a median price of $680,000 this doesn't tell the full story. The more desirable suburbs of Napier Hill, Ahuriri and Taradale sit just shy of $1M.
Hastings median is around $750k but is bolstered by the picturesque village of Havelock North who’s median sits over the $1M mark.
Some notable properties we have on the market include 340 Lawn Road, on the outskirts of Havelock North, a beautiful 2 story character villa set amongst vineyards in a tranquil lifestyle setting.
And sitting proudly on Bluff Hill, Napier, 37 Seapoint Road, a large family home with spectacular views out across the Bay.
