Point Wells

En­joy views to­ward Leigh, Ti Point and Omaha

Real Estate Outlook - - LOCATION -

Point Wells is best known as ‘the gar­den vil­lage’ and has a rep­u­ta­tion as a car­ing com­mu­nity that looks af­ter its el­derly res­i­dents. The gar­den vil­lage rep­u­ta­tion has grown from the area’s rich peat soils and a num­ber of lo­cal hor­ti­cul­tural ven­tures pros­per. The wa­ters of the Whangateau Har­bour lap against the fore­shore, bor­dered by many Point Wells homes that en­joy views to­ward Leigh, Ti Point and Omaha. Other homes have been built to over­look the es­tu­ary-fed wa­ter­ways and net­work of rivers, with Mount Tanahunga pro­vid­ing a cap­ti­vat­ing rural back­drop. Th­ese wa­ters are pop­u­lar for swim­ming, ca­noe­ing and play­ing around in small boats. At low tide the fore­shore re­veals sweep­ing ex­panses of sand for long walks, gath­er­ing shells and rid­ing horses. The town has a dairy and take­away, a com­muntiy hall, a li­brary, play­group, church, cro­quet courts, bowl­ing greens and ten­nis courts. The town, north- east of Wark­worth and Matakana and close to Omaha, has more than 200 homes on flat land. Its com­pact­ness makes it pop­u­lar with older folk who en­joy gar­den­ing and be­ing in walk­ing dis­tance to friends and fa­cil­i­ties. It is not far from the Omaha Beach golf course and Matakana vine­yards. There are sev­eral sub- di­vi­sions un­der way and many hor­ti­cul­tural ven­tures have opened on the prop­er­ties flank­ing the main road into Point Wells.
