Picturesque Coastal Setting for a Secluded Lifestyle
This is the ideal coastal lifestyle for someone who loves the solitude (and fishing) that this always beautiful, often wild stretch of coast delivers. The property provides enough space to potter privately or could be locked and left if used as a holiday base.
Masses of mature trees are an asset to this coastal 5,666 sqm property. You can sit on the big front deck and gaze at the ocean view framed by the foliage which also provides welcome shade through the hot summer months. Tall trees, including ginkgo and ficus, dapple the drive and one of two small paddocks either side has a high open canopy of big old avocado trees. The post and rail fenced drive slopes very gently to ample parking outside a double bay shed and to the spacious home enjoying elevation above this glorious coastal stretch where the Pikowai Stream meanders across the sand to the sea.
Built in the late 1980's, this three bedroom home (could be four as office has wardrobe) has undergone an extensive renovation to become a relaxed contemporary place to live or holiday. Monochrome tones and sleek lines bring the kitchen and bathrooms into the 21st century. Live summer "inside out" with sliding doors opening the kitchen to the elements and more sliders from the large lounge where partially covered deck has some glazing to ensure shelter from on shore breezes. More sliders to balcony outside the upper level master suite let you choose to sleep to the sound of the waves. No need for children to cross the road to the sea when they have a big in-ground pool in the back yard and parents can relax and watch from the octagonal conservatory which adds dramatically to living space.
This is a beautiful spot high above the road that sweeps along this particularly picturesque expanse of coast. The Pikowai Camp Ground is just along the road, Matata for fish and chips a mere five minutes and you can be on the outskirts of Tauranga in half an hour via the Expressway, Whakatane 30 minutes in the other direction.
