Panoramic Picture Book
Seldom does a property of such calibre reach the New Zealand coastal market. This property offers a strong sense of arrival with commanding views and private rural tranquility. Upon entering through the gateway, along the tree-lined driveway you know you have found the perfect picture book setting. Set on an established 2.7265 hectares of gated blue-chip land that is surprisingly low-maintenance given the vast amount of area, an exceptional coastal trophy and modern home is purpose built to take advantage of the magnificent views across the ocean towards Whale Island, White Island, Rurima Island and around to the East Cape. The expansive windows and high ceilings flood the home in natural light. Wide doors in social zones comprising a connoisseur's kitchen and casual and formal lounging options retract to wide patios traversing the home's seaside elevation, perfect for entertaining. Plentiful accommodation is offered on the top level with four bedrooms and three bathrooms including the sanctuary-like master suite with spacious tiled ensuite and large dressing room. The thoughtfully configured layout also includes a separate lounge and study positioned adjacent the master suite, providing a real retreat. Attached yet separate, the property also provides self-contained accommodation with well-equipped kitchen and bathroom facilities; ideal for a dependent relative, or would be fantastic as an Air BnB or rental.
Completing this exceptional home is an internal oversized two car garage and oversized laundry room plus external high stud, four bay shed including workshop, an ideal option for the car enthusiast or stowing the boat and jet-skis.
There is certainly a sense of adventure to be had, take a stroll to the beach, fish from the nearby jetty or launch your boat at the ramp just around the corner. For the garden lovers, there is a greenhouse, vegetable garden with raised beds and established fruit trees.
Located in the heart of the Eastern Bay, Thornton is a popular rural/coastal location only ten minutes from Whakatane with Rotorua and Tauranga an easy one hour drive. Primary schooling is less than 2 kilometres down the road.
