Own a piece of lakeside history nestled on the idyllic Te Ti Bay shoreline

Nestled on the picturesque shoreline of Te Ti Bay, a cherished family homestead steeped in tradition is on offer for discerning buyers seeking an unparalleled waterfront retreat.

This iconic Kiwi Bach boasts timeless charm and rustic features, embodying the essence of lakeside living.

“Te Ti Bay is super sought after. The current owners have had an association with this land for over 100 years. There’s a lot of love and passion that’s been poured into it” says Bayleys spokesperson Beth Millard.

Covering a generous 178sqm (more or less), the four-bedroom, two-bathroom original homestead-style residence sits on a sprawling freehold site spanning an impressive 6,824sqm (more or less). With gently sloping grounds leading to the water's edge, the property offers a serene escape surrounded by nature's embrace.

“Everyone who wants to own a lake property has an idyllic vision that they want to sit on their deck, drink a glass of wine and watch their kids play in the water. This property is it.”

“It’s whisper quiet, and the lake’s edge is quite literally 20 steps from the deck.”

257C Whangamoa Drive easily caters to water enthusiasts, with a half share in a jetty right on your doorstep, providing easy access for fishing excursions and water sports adventures. Additionally, the renowned Manupira hot pools are just across the bay, further adding to the allure of this sought-after destination.

"This is the ultimate escape. It’s not just a home, but a lifestyle enriched by the tranquil beauty of Lake Rotoiti."

Cherished by the same family since the 1930s, the property presents a rare opportunity to secure a piece of history, and with the potential for further advancement, this offering opens the door to endless possibilities for future generations.

“When it comes to location, it doesn't get better than this.”

"The sale of this spectacular home marks the passing of a slice of paradise and history onto another family, destined to create their own cherished memories for generations to come."

In close proximity to the iconic Okere Store, 20 minutes from Rotorua and 45 minutes to Mount Maunganui, it’s easy to relish in the quiet but also enjoy easy access to local amenities when needed.

“When you walk onto the property, it’s like time has stood still. The crazy world we live in begins to quiet, and there’s an overwhelming sense of calm.”

“It’s like you’ve stepped back into a time before technology, and you’re out of the hamster wheel of life.”

For those seeking a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to own a piece of Kiwi paradise, this property stands as a testament to the enduring spirit of lakeside living.
