Your own private, beach and country retreat less than 70 mins from Auckland
“Until we went there, we would never have believed such a wonderfully peaceful, private, white sandy beach environment, existed so close to Auckland”
Located just before Big Bay, at the end of a private road, is this unique property with 3.3194ha (9ac) of north-facing land with direct access to a secluded, white sandy beach, a cleverly designed main house which is a large version of a traditional bach design, guest/kids accommodation, plus large garaging and storage. The uniqueness lies in the combination of its privacy and peace, rural and sea views, white sandy beaches … all with the Sky Tower in sight.
Once you are there the environment is like the Far North or Coromandel, but you do not have the Harbour Bridge or the Thames road to ‘fight through’ to get there. From Remuera it can be an easy 70 minute run that takes you through the countryside around Karaka, the Waiuku township then up the beautiful historic Awhitu Peninsula with its dramatic scenery, rolling countryside, farms, orchards and vineyards. The feeling is very much like ‘relaxed’ New Zealand as it was without the crowds.
Set on a knoll the view from the main house flows down over the gentle slope of your land and native planting that protects your privacy, to flat lawns near the beach from which boats can be launched to waterski, fish, sail, paddle board or whatever takes your fancy. From there the view extends across the Manukau Harbour to Auckland. Facing north-west, the sun is with you from early morning until the end of the day.
There are no other houses in view and the zoning of the surrounding area and covenants means that it is likely to remain so.
The large main living area is the hub of family life, with large sliding doors that open onto the spacious deck, and expansive sea views one way and an enclosed courtyard the other. The master bedroom suite is at the eastern end and features a large bedroom sharing the amazing view plus its own bathroom. This is mirrored with another bedroom suite at the other end of the main building. The family or guest accommodation includes two more bedrooms, a third bathroom plus kitchenette and utility area.
There is room for all the water sports equipment you may wish to have, plus your land adjacent to the beach has power, water and toilet on site, and is perfect for friends and family who may wish to camp or bring their own accommodation. The opportunity is there to participate in a great range of outdoor pursuits that are not normally available in most other holiday destinations ... horse riding, clay bird shooting, motocross riding, tennis and golf ... to name just a few.
Having the town of Waiuku only 30 minutes away, and Auckland less than an hour and a half, means that it would be practical to think of living here or perhaps more importantly having a family or personal private retreat close enough for you to use on a regular basis.An amazing property, like no other we have seen.
