Hear the waves gently lap at the shore from this sublime, subtropical oasis in peaceful Kuakarau Bay.
Just 30 metres from the boat ramp, this generous parcel of land enjoys beautiful views over the gulf to Maraetai and the distant Hunua Ranges.
With sealed parking, robust block walls and an incredible network of substantial pathways, all the landscaping toil has been completed for easy access around the garden.
Cabbage trees and mature nikau dot the landscape, while an explosion of brightly hued clivias creates a sea of colour that floods the property entrance.
Meander past bromeliads and ancient pohutukawa to a sunny, cleared site that is currently home to grand irrigated vegetable and herb planters.
Wafts of pineapple sage, rosemary, thyme and mint hang in the air as the adventure continues up sturdy steps.
Here, you'll discover lime and peach trees, exotically scented kaffir leaves, and two pretty spots for viewing the idyllic bay and pondering your building project.
The handy garden shed, a repurposed long-drop tool shed and sizeable compost bins are a gardener's delight. And there's a further path to the rear, with more sea views.
These low-maintenance grounds, neighbouring expansive forest reserve, are a real haven in this quiet corner of the bay.
Right by the water for summer swims, and just a few steps from established walking tracks as part of the Te Ara Hura Waiheke walkways network, all you need is your architect and your dreams to fulfil this property's potential.
