Beautiful views, prime location too!

House · Sold

This lovable home with tranquil inner harbour views is nestled within established grounds, and has been built for family and entertaining.

There are two living areas, a sun-drenched conservatory and fabulous spaces to enjoy alfresco dining with family and friends.

At the end of the garden, the 829m2 elevated site flows to an esplanade reserve, where you can enjoy leisurely walks, kayaking and appreciate birdlife, and views of farmland, framed by the Kaimai ranges. You may even like to try your luck and catch a fish or two.

The charming three bedroom home has been well loved as a full time residence, and would also make a wonderful holiday home, with plenty of scope to renovate or redevelop, and to add your personal touch.

There are three good size bedrooms, master with ensuite and walk in robe, and ever changing water views can be appreciated from all the living zones, and the two bedrooms on the upper level.

Heated by a wood burner (with a wetback to keep the power bills down), there are also two heat pumps, so you will be lovely and warm in winter.

A generous size sunroom that opens to the garden, is a perfect place to relax, and would make a wonderful family room for kids and hobbies too.

There is a fenced pool area, where teenagers and children will enjoy endless hours of summer fun. Also, a super size double garage with an automatic door opener, workshop space and a high stud for storage, that will appeal to the handy person in the family.

The enchanting garden with mature specimen trees, fruit trees and a good size flat lawn allows plenty of room for children and pets to play, and space to park a camper and the boat.

Property like this is hard to find and Francis Drive is a desired street address. Shops and restaurants are within five minutes drive and the surf at Waihi beach 15 minutes from your door.

Potential, prime street address and lots of appeal – call me today!

Located within the Bay of Plenty – Tauranga, and the surrounding areas are renowned for great fishing, boating, a large inner harbour, good swimming beaches and the surf at Waihi beach at the northern end of the bay, and Mount Maunganui at the southern end, with scenic bush and the Kaimai ranges as a backdrop – creating a wonderful recreational playground.

Economically the Bay is known for its thriving business and rural community with Tourism, Horticulture (predominately Kiwifruit and Avocado production), Viticulture, Pastoral farming and Forestry as the key economic elements.

With a temperate climate, great business opportunities, excellent schools, beaches, cafes and restaurants, the growing region is proving to be an attractive destination for both Kiwi’s and international migrants to live and holiday, and a wonderful place to enjoy all, that life in New Zealand offers.
