Escape, arrival, adventure, supreme comfort and a deep affinity with the sea and nature, this property has these qualities in abundance. Testament to over 40 years of ownership and thoughtful stewardship of the highest level.
The 4,224 sq m (more or less) site was historically selected due to the sheltered anchorage it provides. The boatshed as it stands is original and houses the owners Sealegs. An original cottage was used by the owners for 20 years while they contemplated a substantial new and environmentally considerate build that was completed in 2004.
Water only access makes this property truly magical and unique. Immediately impressive, the degree of comfort offered on arrival is sophisticated beyond expectation. Everything you could want for a few days, weeks or months. For true escape, the lucky few could even call this home.
The bay is a delight, framed with picturesque out crop and taking in direct views of Ponui Island and the mainland beyond. The easy contour allows swimming and beach access within a minutes stroll. The Sealegs is used to effortlessly access the best fishing and recreational boating on Waiheke and a deep water mooring provides anchorage for either yacht or motor launch to this idyllic spot.
Proportioned to accommodate a group with ease, the cedar vertical weatherboards, lofty living room stud of five metres and Bosch appliances are examples of the functional and timeless design. Spacious living and four bedrooms are positioned on the main floor and a huge games and utility room occupy the lower level. Amenities are well covered with mains power to the site, rain water storage sits at 10,000 litres and a pump from the fresh water stream provides extra water for gardens and boat rinsing.
Reflecting the owners generosity and genuine hope that the next owners experience the privilege they have, they are including all furniture and appliances to make this a turn key proposition, allowing your holiday adventures to begin from day one.
