Nestle into nature with a rare investment prospect on exclusive piece of Northland coastline

An exceptional opportunity awaits those seeking a slice of paradise on Whangarei's breathtaking coast. With over 200 meters of waterfront spread across two generous freehold titles, 85 Scott Road offers the potential for development or personal retreat.

Lot 1 covers 2,605 square meters, while Lot 2 spans 5,564 square meters (approx.), with both featuring brand-new sea walls and a convenient concrete boat ramp.

"This property is incredibly unique. Very rarely do such prime parcels become available, offering both a blend of development and waterfront tranquility” says Bayleys salesperson John Greenwood.

Previously known as the Blue Heron Holiday Park for 80 years, the property was transformed into a residential haven by the current owners who have overseen the picturesque piece of land for the last 16 years.

Lot 1 has two separate entrances to two dwellings, the first being a one-bedroom bach with a large deck overlooking breathtaking west facing views. The second is further up the road in a more elevated position, and offers a one-bedroom dwelling with kitchen and bathroom.

“The larger dwelling would make a fantastic holiday home, the deck provides unobstructed views to the setting sun. It’s the perfect spot to relax with a gin in hand.”

Lot 2 is the larger of the two freehold titles housing a three-bedroom, one-bathroom weatherboard home, three one-bedroom studios, and a two-level building containing an ablution block and camp kitchen.

“The park kitchen is now an open space with fantastic views and has been stripped out to become a separate living area for the main house. The ablution block would make a fantastic boatshed with a deck directly above it.”

Behind the main house is another studio, as well as an additional standalone one-bedroom unit with a full bathroom, kitchen and separate driveway.

“Right on the waterfront at the front of the main house sits a stunning BBQ cabana positioned right over the water. It’s a unique addition that you wouldn’t be allowed to build again.”

But what sets this property apart is its adaptability. Preliminary plans allow for subdivision and the creation of up to seven additional titles (nine in total). Alternatively, buyers can choose to subdivide Lot 1, all while retaining Lot 2's coveted 200 meters of waterfront exclusively.

With dual road access and riparian rights along nearly half the boundary, the development potential is vast. “It would make the ideal spot to build a series of holiday cabins, with such a huge waterfront it’s the perfect place to enjoy summers and long weekends relaxing.”

Positioned on the serene Tamaterau coastal settlement near Whangarei, the enviable location offers a peaceful retreat bound to satisfy lovers of the outdoors.

“You can enjoy golfing, fishing, kayaking and leisurely walks all along the pristine beaches of the Whangarei Harbour.”

“With a relocation to Auckland the vendors are highly motivated to sell, but the only way to truly grasp this property’s endless potential is by coming out and viewing just how spectacular it is for yourself.”

John Greenwood and Sam Swinburne are marketing 85 Scott Road for sale via auction at 2pm on May 15 2024 (unless sold prior).
