Set atop an elevated native bush ridge, this exceptional 8.4ha property affords stunning 360 degree views over Waihi Beach, the Pacific Ocean and Coromandel Coast. Just a two-hour drive from Auckland, the outstanding estate boasts a distinctive hand-built eco-home, rolling pasture, Heli-pad, barn and subterranean wine-cellar.
Mediterranean e'lan merges with the intense purity of the Coromandel Peninsula landscape in the construction and setting of the distinctively ornate five-bedroom straw-bale and mud-brick home. Reclaimed native Kauri doors, recycled jarrah and exotic timbers blend to create an enduring retreat away from the hustle and bustle of city life.
Described as a "little paradise on earth" the property features double height raked timber ceilings and prodigious use of expertly milled and finished timber in a variety of interior and exterior treatments. Open-plan living areas and a large banquet sized dining room with underfloor heating are enriched by rustic objects d'art and bespoke fixtures and furnishings made both locally and accumulated from all over the world which form part of sale. A generously proportioned provincial country kitchen with granite countertops is fully-equipped for passionate foodies who love to entertain. Each bedroom suite has its own imaginative arts and crafts detailing in bathrooms and accommodation, several with doors to the landscaped gardens, outdoor fireplace, terraces and romantic open-air bathing alcoves.
Dominating the native bush ridge in Golden Valley, and sympathetically designed to maximize the dramatic bush and ocean views, Manawa Ridge truly is exceptional
This private slice of paradise would make a perfect wellness retreat or haven for nature-lovers, offering a variety of lifestyle choices and eco-living.
