For sale for the first time in almost 50 years this solid and spacious bungalow stretches down the hillside to the water's edge where you can launch your boat from your own boat ramp and catch snapper on the Meola Reef just minutes from the shore. Situated in one of the most desirable waterfront locations in Auckland this is the only private property from Westhaven Marina to Point Chevalier providing water access for a large boat directly from the road.
The substantial family home has five bedrooms and multiple living areas. There is generous off-street parking, a double garage, carport and covered boat storage. A large shed perched right on the water's edge and currently used as a boat builder's workshop is the idyllic spot for a range of leisure activities and water pursuits. This tranquil and private oasis fringed with Pohutukawa trees has stunning north easterly views across Cox's Bay to the Chelsea sugar factory and cityward to the Sky Tower.
