|Opua is a peaceful seaside settlement with a population of 350
and is in the heart of one of New Zealands' most popular summer vacation destinations; the Bay of Islands, located in the sub tropical north, only 3 hours north of Auckland. |
Surrounded by the key towns of Paihia, Russell, Waitangi and Kerikeri, offering excellent shopping, restaurants, cafes / bars and safe swimming beaches. Opua has its
own general store (with bakery and Post Office), an award winning fully licensed cafe/restaurant (featuring locally caught seafood) and a popular cruising club servicing a 400 boat marina with excellent marine services. The bay area has a variety of recreational activities including: Kayaking, paragliding, diving, fishing, sailing, dolphin & whale watching and some of the best walking tracks in the north.
Having a modern, bright house in a great location is a good reason to
look forward to coming home each night.
The house was a custom designed response to both the owner and the coastal location.
Welcoming interiors flooded with natural light, open plan living configurations and effective indoor outdoor connections are all features of the home.
The dramatic views of the upper level have been reserved for the living spaces and the master bedroom.
The black and white kitchen with stainless splashback and
island front, provides a modern centre point in a decor that allows the views to take centre stage. It also allows great social interaction with guests. The bi-fold doors at the back of the kitchen give access on the other side giving a perfect late afternoon BBQ area.
The focal point of the living room, apart from the views, is the built in fireplace housed in a natural concrete surround. The simple styling of the furniture reinforces the uncluttered
look, with a colour scheme that is an integral part of the mix. The extensive tiled floors are easily maintained.
The dining area is positioned to give the impression that you eating "al fresco" and is a few convenient steps to the kitchen.
The master bedroom really sums up every thing that is special about the location with fabulous uninterrupted views, making getting out of bed a difficult task.
A semi-free standing wall in the master bedroom backs onto
the spacious fully tiled ensuite and an interesting wardrobe layout.
A huge double garage and work area (yes it also looks over the bay) gives stairway access to the lower floor into a large rumpus room. The lower floor was the original Opua Harbour masters house, can be either used as another 2 separate bedrooms, two stand alone rentable units complete with their own bathrooms, kitchens and separate entries or ideal accommodation for a home stay.
The northerly aspect of the property captures the benefits of the sub tropical climate which is also maximized by the Solar hot water system.
The house has a sense of strength and scale. This is provided by the steel structural support complimented by the rectangular panel cladding, which distinguishes the house from the surrounding properties.
With expansive decks on both sides to catch the sun all day long, floor to ceiling glazing, and open plan living spaces, the
house is a picture of seaside relaxation. Glass balustrading provides safe, uninterrupted views of the bay and is in keeping with the contemporary architectural exterior.
Just as water plays an important visual role in the house, so does light. To ensure there is plenty of light in the living areas, the roof slopes up overlooking the water, leaving space for a line of windows below the eaves, drawing your eye to the sky and allowing excellent ventilation.
The house is 296 square meters (3186 square feet), with 140 square meters (1506 square feet) of balconies and decks. The property is surrounded by low maintenance gardens so you can spend more time relaxing rather than working and if its boating you are keen on, you have your own swing mooring 80 meters directly out in front.
This is a rare opportunity to purchase an exceptional waterfront home in a prime position in the much sought after Bay of Islands.
