Imagine the Possibilities
Simply Stunning! With your breath taken away by incredible views to the Ōhiwa Harbour, as the sun sets to the West whilst waters glisten with golden rays dancing upon gentle ripples, there will be no doubt that you are living in your own slice of paradise, just living the dream.
This special place is hardly known outside the Eastern Bay of Plenty. Kim Webby wrote in her recent Kiwi postcard article published in the Sunday Star-Times, 29 Nov 2020, Ōhiwa Harbour is a place full of surprises, where orca chase stingrays to get a feed, godwits fly 11,700 kilometres from Alaska to nest, there's an abundance of oysters, and the fish bite. In an uncertain world, Ōhiwa Harbour feels safe and steadfast. The turn of the tide, the coming and going of the godwits, and the annual blush of pōhutukawa is very reassuring.
Having loved every minute of her ownership at this sanctuary, this hidden haven, awaits loving new owners as our vendor reluctantly lets her slice of heaven go to be closer to family.
The offering here is special and unique indeed, with over 1600m² of land and a somewhat "heritage" orchard set in a mini micro-climate up behind the home. Exploring, hiding and hut building will be the domain of the kids when they are not frolicking, swimming, playing and fishing in the harbour. For the adults, "pottering" will be a pleasure, or rest in the hammock, shaded by established trees and sup on a glass of "something delicious" whilst reading a book or simply listen enjoy the bird life, with tuis, kererū and fantails in abundance. This is the epitome of laid-back living.
The dwelling itself is a true character throwback to simpler times where bedrooms and kitchens took second place to expansive family and communal areas. Our vendor has taken care of many of the required maintenance items identified when she purchased and with a new roof installed recently, this home is set for many years of minimal maintenance. The rooms are also orientated in such a fashion that the option of an Airbnb offering for additional income will be yours, or have it all for yourself with space for the many friends and family that will "all of a sudden, want to catch up for a weekend at yours..."
Water is via a metered community bore supply, so no concerns about water tanks running dry and the septic tank will be freshly emptied prior to your settlement at this stunning property.
A close and easy commute to get a good coffee, access services, shops, or employment in Ōpōtiki, Ōhope or Whakatāne.
