A sandy foreshore on Tauranga Harbour is bound to tantalise - but it's the view that counts here. A sweeping panorama embracing Matakana Island and sunset glory over the Kaimais - Bowentown Heads and Coromandel in between. Welcome to the domain of Auchenbrain.
A prominent estate, this homestead portion is for sale for the first time. The house isn't the main attraction though; the site is the trump card. Five hectares (subject to survey) includes a broad waterfront ribbon on a sandy shore with over 200m of beach front. Launch kayaks, dinghies or paddle boards; fish or fossick. Recreation doesn't get better. The potential is enormous.
This hidden haven slopes gently to the water - through an orchard of citrus and 175 young avocados. Then there's the playground element - a secret forest path down to the harbour; campground fringe along the waterfront and another scenic walk to a hidden pond. If you have vision, this will inspire you. If you love nature, the birdsong will enthral you. Kaka, tui and wood pigeon all reside here.
Live in the home and contemplate the next phase. It's comfortable and built around the view - from the kitchen, dining, lounge and all three bedrooms. There's also a cosy den, several bathrooms, storage and outdoor flow.
Opportunities of position like this don't come around often.
