Pop­u­lar Snells Beach

Real Estate Outlook - - Location -

Snells Beach is a grow­ing sea­side town only 7km from Wark­worth. It has a large per­ma­nent pop­u­la­tion which is pre­dicted to in­crease from 3500, in­clud­ing nearby Al­gies Bay, to 9200 by 2018. A new $8 mil­lion school is to be built on Daw­son Rd next year, with an ini­tial roll of about 260, which is ex­pected to rise to 500 over the next 12 years. An­tic­i­pat­ing the growth of the pop­u­lar town, Cabra De­vel­op­ments have be­gun the earth­works on a res­i­den­tial de­vel­op­ment called Mahu­rangi Ridge Es­tate on Mahu­rangi East Rd. It will have 82 res­i­den­tial lots. The area, over­look­ing Kawau Bay, was named af­ter James and Mary Snell who bought the land, then ca­su­ally known as Long Beach, in 1854. The Cor­nish cou­ple had im­mi­grated to New Zealand with their six chil­dren in 1853 af­ter briefly liv­ing in Canada and Aus­tralia. Snells Beach has two busy shop­ping ar­eas, The Ware­house, a li­brary and com­mu­nity cen­tre and com­mu­nity po­lice sta­tion next to Good­ell Re­serve, and boat ramps at the beach. A must visit is the High­field Gar­den Re­serve, which sep­a­rates Snells Beach from Al­gies Bay. It’s home to friendly don­keys and white ducks. The re­serve has an amaz­ing lookout across Snells Beach.
