Majestic Northland coastal property ripe for lifestyle development

A spectacular Northland coastal property, suitable for lifestyle development, is for sale.

On the east coast looking out to the Poor Knights Islands, and located four kilometres north of Whananaki, 30 kilometres north east of Hikurangi and 47 kilometres north east of Whangarei, the property is offered to the market by Dennis Wallace of PGG Wrightson Real Estate, Whangarei, who describes it as outstanding.

“Northland coastal property is always eagerly sought after.

In two titles totalling 16.9 hectares, this is a grand portion of elevated coastline showcasing million dollar views. Currently used as a farm support block, the north east facing land is favourably set up with good pasture, comprising a pleasant mix of well fenced and raced easy to rolling contour.”

Local attractions include sandy secluded beaches, bush reserves, tramping, boating, camping, hunting, fishing, surfing, kayaking, bird watching, scuba diving, snorkelling and kiting. To the south, Whananaki Inlet is Te Wairahi Stream’s wide tidal estuary, sweeping to the ocean and separating Whananaki from Whananaki South. A small, peaceful, laid back village, Whananaki consists of a store, a primary school and a camp ground, with a few homes and baches scattered around the estuary and along the coastline. Estuary mudflats merge into a mangrove ecosystem providing shelter, food and habitat for many species of birds, fish and marine creatures.

Dennis says the land is part of a large local holding that has been in the hands of the same family for many years, with a Charolais beef stud the focus of their farm.

“A central ridge runs through this property, with three or four potential house sites. As the block comprises two titles, the possibility to alter boundaries gives a new owner the opportunity to build two houses. Other recent lifestyle developments nearby underline the location’s appeal. A site at the bottom of the ridge has potential for reclamation as a wetland, which would enhance local ecosystems and this property’s amenity, while the ongoing use of much of the rest of the land for livestock points towards its most likely future.

“Crisp white sand and Pohutakawa-fringed Otamure Bay, which features a highly sought after Department of Conservation camping ground, is a short distance away, and once a house is built its owners will be able to walk their fishing rods down to a rocky point.

“Locals regard this as one of the most outstandingly beautiful parts of Northland’s east coast, with lush paddocks, stands of magnificent bush, superb pristine beaches and majestic rugged islands,” says Dennis.
