Shore perfection near world’s best beach

Three prime residential lots are for sale near Kaiteriteri Beach, a prized location, which was voted one of the best beaches in the world by TripAdvisor in 2021.

The properties occupy an idyllic position sitting above Dummy Bay, which is nestled between Little Kaiteriteri and Stephens Bay. The renowned Abel Tasman National Park is on its doorstep.

Bayleys salesperson Sandra Goodman says the sites are a rare opportunity to secure a footprint so close to the beach. A public walkway on Cook Crescent provides direct access to Dummy Bay Beach.

“Kaiteriteri is a launching pad to the Abel Tasman National Park and Dummy Bay is the first golden sand beach on the Abel Tasman side of Tasman Bay. What an invitation - you can have access to one of the world’s most treasured National Parks and New Zealand’s Great Walk right in your own neighbourhood.

“The sections provide an opportunity to build the home of your dreams in a location that offers stunning views across the bay to the Richmond Ranges and along the coastline to the Kina Cliffs,” she says.

“Occupying some of the most spectacular sites in the heart of New Zealand’s waterfront playground and many of the homes here are intergenerational treasures.

“We anticipate the opportunity for buyers to create something to their own exacting specifications, will appeal to Kiwis’ nostalgia and desire for a year-round holiday experience.”

Lots 33, 34 and 35 are located off the Cook Crescent cul-de-sac extension in Stephens Bay, which Sandra says has created considerable interest during post-development works.

Lot 35 has a total area of 964sq m (more or less) and features as the coveted ‘hot spot’ position.

Lot 34 spans 998sq m, and Lot 35 is 1,107sq m (more or less). Each site gains a northeast-facing vantage and is fully serviced to the boundary.

Walkers, visitors and boaties admire Dummy Bay for its sheltered and secluded position, with appealing turquoise waters, golden sand within an area of great community ambience that offers a rare blend of quiet enjoyment and some of the country’s most spectacular real estate.

Sandra advises that buyers are becoming more focused on property as treasured family assets, with world-class beachside locations like Dummy Bay attracting heightened interest amongst those eager to create gathering hubs and meaningful memories.

“Busy lives and the post pandemic lifestyle shift have placed a new emphasis on sharing family experiences - particularly summer joy and laughter with children and grandchildren.

“As the population grows and holiday destinations become busier, that becomes more challenging, enhancing the value of private areas like Dummy Bay – possibly the region’s best-kept secret.”

The properties are positioned atop one of the most stunning locations in the entire region, providing a chance for new owners to build and capture the essence of the immediate environment and create something extraordinary that reflects the unique landscape.

Little blue penguins can be seen along Little Kaiteriteri, and native birdlife is in abundance in this thriving coastal environment.

“Residents need not have two days the same living in a perennial beautiful area. Adventure bike tracks, wineries, artisan boutiques, hiking, sailing, swimming, fishing, kayaking and boating it’s right on your doorstep.”

Only about an hour’s drive from Nelson Airport, access for visitors and residents alike is easy and direct.

“What a truly remarkable opportunity to design and build a dream lifestyle in one of the world’s most spectacular waterfront destinations.”

Sandra is marketing the properties for sale via the tender process, closing at 2:00pm on Thursday, 22nd February 2024. The sections will not be sold prior.
