Labour Weekend auction at Whangamata harbour waterfront
Patiki Point is a beautiful spot – a small neighbourhood sitting at the northern tip of Whangamata’s township. This is a tranquil community on the idyllic Patiki Bay, and Durrant Drive runs down to the reserve on the point. Nestled right by this reserve, No. 175 is among the best positions. One of Whangamata’s iconic homes, it’s architecturally designed to take full advantage of the views - embracing them wherever possible. Thanks to this position, the home commands the best of the sun and nature.
Built from brick and cedar, rimu features throughout the home’s interior, which instils warm accents to the soft décor. Roof and ceiling pitches add interest, while enhancing the space and light. Timber features are showcased in high-pitched ceilings and exposed beams, with tongue and groove flooring in the kitchen and dining room. An inbuilt unit for the drinks and glassware is crafted in rimu. Bathroom vanities are also finished in rimu, while the master bedroom upstairs features diagonal panelling behind the bed. Complete with its own bathroom and floorlength glazing, this bedroom’s windows frame views around the reserve to the water and hills beyond. A mezzanine on this upper level is handy as well. It gives options for a private snug, office, or extra accommodation, while still allowing conversation with family below in the lounge.
Views are on offer in nearly every room of this home.
It’s what surrounds this home that lifts it to the next level. The seamless link with the reserve creates a continual stretch of lawn. It is a nature-lover’s expanse – basking in wide views to the upper harbour, down to the marina and beyond. With ribbons of reserve to walk along, you can meander around the various points from Patiki Bay, across the causeway to the marina and wharf. Launch the kayak at high tide and paddle around the harbour. Be at one with nature and be the better for it.
The owners have loved this home for 28 years. Auction at Labour Weekend will decide its next chapter.
