Mangonui is one of those special places. The relaxed seaside atmosphere and unique heritage character makes you want to slow down, look around and take time to enjoy the sights, sunshine and sea air. This stunning lifestyle property embodies the essence of Mangonui at its best: a gorgeous 3+ bedroom heritage cottage on 6728 sqm of elevated waterfront land in a unique and convenient central location with wide harbour and coastal views.
The property is very private and peaceful, tucked away down a long curved drive, fringed with large trees, gardens and park like grounds. The grounds are divided into two zones, manicured lawns and gardens around the cottage, and a more wild fenced paddock that slopes down to the harbour. The gardens include multiple outdoor entertainment areas, 20 mature olive trees, and a variety of established orchard trees. The land is very manageable for its size, with potential to expand and enhance to suit your lifestyle. It is held in two titles and commercially zoned.
The two storey cottage has been restored and renovated to retain an authentic colonial layout and feel. It is tucked amongst the trees with wooden staircases leading up to a wrap around covered verandah. Inside living areas at ground level are semi-open plan and full of character, with lots of exposed timber and period detail. These spaces include a light and airy casual dining/living room opening onto a spacious north facing deck, a more formal lounge with adjacent dining room, a unique kauri kitchen, modern bathroom, spacious master bedroom, a large office, and a handy rear service area with second toilet and covered carport. The upper level accommodates two character guest bedrooms which feel like something straight out of a fairy tale. A very unique lifestyle property with loads of character and appeal.
