The good life doesn't get much better at this large acreage of rolling pasture, olives and magnificent native bush in the king of Waiheke suburbs - prestigious Church Bay.
Just a stroll from Oneroa village and not far from the neighbouring high-end vineyards and stunning coastal walks, this 17 acre (7 hectare, more or less) block has been planted out and nurtured over decades to form a picturesque homestead featuring a spacious home and separate guest house, an orchard, paddocks and even a boutique horse arena. With a grand, olive tree lined driveway, privacy is secured at the four-bedroom, four-bathroom house plus spacious two bedroom cottage. The main home offers open-plan living with a conservatory area off the lounge.
Wraparound decks lead seamlessly to an elegant flat lawn featuring a central paved outdoor dining area with raised vege gardens around the side. A large converted double garage provides workshop space, off which there is a spacious laundry and separate extra virgin olive oil cellar. And two double bedrooms, both with en-suites and access to their own deck, enjoy a separate entrance - perfect for visitor accommodation. Upstairs, the huge master suite runs from front to back, with bedroom, bathroom, office, two decks and dreamy peep sea views over the gulf to the mainland. Also upstairs is a self-contained, one-bedroom apartment with its own entrance and deck. The spectacular rural grounds are home to an additional two-bedroom, two-bathroom cottage with a generous open-plan living space and two large decks.
From here there are tranquil views down to the pond, its charming boardwalk, and the entrance to a delightful bush trail. The property's incredible food forest of edibles doesn't just include 280 olive trees. It extends to pine nuts, apples, plums, nectarines, figs and grapes.
With a huge sealed parking area and converted tack room for extra storage, plus your own firewood trees, there is so much potential to rework this exceptional landholding into your own sanctuary.
