Versatility a ‘must-have’ on lifestyle buyers’ wish-lists

As the sun disappears behind the Kaimai Ranges, with light dancing off the Wainui River, one sprawling lifestyle property comes alive above the Tauranga estuary, purveying a sense of unbridled luxury and multi-use opportunity.

The 2.46ha estate has been meticulously crafted by its current owners, delivering an extensive 321sqm (more or less) internal floorplan that lends itself to multi-generational living with supplementary income potential.

Bayleys Tauranga salesperson Anton Terblanche says 175 Stewart Road has attracted widespread interest from potential purchasers, united by their recognition of the property’s inherent flexibility and value.

“The property and surrounds make an immediate impression on anyone with an eye for quality development in residential construction. This is reflected by a hugely functional single-level floorplan that features two independent wings easily capable of accommodating visitors, extended family households, or a short-stay accommodation venture.”

Terblanche is marketing the Whakamārama property for sale by auction, scheduled at 1:00 pm on Wednesday, 17th April 2024 (unless sold prior).

The designer home features four bedrooms, three fully tiled bathrooms, separate living areas, and modern conveniences, including independently controlled central air conditioning and sound systems.

“Through a formal entry, visitors are instantly wowed by uninterrupted and uniquely New Zealand views, which spill west from the integrated living spaces over a large Kwila deck that runs the entire length of the home,” Terblanche says.

“A primary wing on the northern side features a master suite with full bathroom, walk-in-wardrobe and supplementary guest bedroom plus ensuite, providing seamless lock-up-and-leave living when only partial occupation is required.”

Additional amenities include a spa and sauna, with covered alfresco entertaining areas accessible to a dual-sided fireplace and vibrant solar night lights.

The second wing provides two more bedrooms, a full family bathroom, and separate indoor and outdoor living areas.

A triple car garage, three implement sheds, and a 40-foot storage container provide ample storage for vehicles, including boats, hobby, and maintenance equipment. The grounds have been expertly developed for easy care.

“The large sprawling land plot presents an abundance of opportunity for new owners, which may pursue equine, horticultural interests or the potential to generate supplementary income through livestock grazing and accommodation options.”

Privately located towards the end of Stewart Road, the estate is superbly accessible to the rapidly growing townships of Katikati and Ōmokoroa, which feature community amenities, schooling, retail and an upmarket rural village atmosphere.

Terblanche says that the broader Tauranga region has been one of New Zealand’s fastest-growing areas for the last decade, with the Western Bay of Plenty a recent focus area for lifestyle hunters moving away from urban centres.

“A location within the country’s economic engine room (The Golden Triangle, which links Auckland, Tauranga and Hamilton) presents a significant opportunity to capitalise on consistent demand for homes through population growth.

“Equally, recent policy changes which have sought to reduce the subdivision of productive land may see lifestyle holdings in this coveted region increasingly sought-after.

“Whether you’re seeking a sanctuary for your family or a luxurious retreat for guests, this beautiful estate offers a rare combination of size, quality and location punctuated by design elegance and tranquil surrounds.”
