Coastal living, stunning views, magical sunsets
Evoking images of an endless summer - of lazy afternoons on the front lawn and cooling swims in the pristine waters that glide past the unspoilt sands of the beach, this property is proudly poised yet unpretentious in style.
Hovering near tranquil waters, there's something inherently soothing about this slice of Maketu magic; it's a dreamy lifestyle offering many possibilities, whether you're looking for a permanent residence, investing, retiring, developing or just wanting a holiday escape.
The uninterrupted panoramic water and island views are simply spectacular. This cliff-top beauty arguably offers the best views in Maketu; Te Puke and Papamoa Hills with the coastal beach through to Mount Maunganui, Kaimai Ranges, Mayor Island, Motiti Island through to Schooner Rock and up to Coromandel's coast as far as the eyes can see ... the views don't get much better than this.
On a generous 1181sqm, there's unleashed potential here. The modest three bedroom home is tidy, with open plan living spilling to a long covered patio for entertaining, perfectly designed to bask in all-day sun. A double garage stores the car and the water toys, the large front lawn ideal for play.
With an unspoiled estuary and beach directly across the road, there's much to love about the water playground; do a bit of bird watching, enjoy a leisurely swim, set up the Kontiki or surfcaster, hunt for pipis and flounder, or launch the boat for a day of fishing or diving with an abundance of seafood waiting to be harvested, then sit back and enjoy the colourful and impressive sunsets.
Wind back the clock to bygone days and remember when life was simply about relaxing and enjoying long summer holidays. If you manage to tear yourself away from the serenity of this special property, Maketu is superbly located with easy access via the TEL to Tauranga, Rotorua, Papamoa, Te Puke and Whakatane. The family has enjoyed 60 years of ownership with plenty of memories but now offer this rare and unique property to the market.
