Auckland, NZ, New Zealand
265 Maraetai Drive, Maraetai
This very unique waterfront property has been loved and cherished with many happy memories and change of tides by the same family for over 70 years and it's easy to understand why. The location, being the last house along the golden sands of Maraetai's waterfront, the property has just one neighbour, and the sandy beach opposite makes it feel like you can reach out and touch the crystal blue waters of the Hauraki Gulf without leaving the comfort of the couch! The well maintained 3 bedroom plus office or 4th bedroom property was renovated 15 years ago and honours the original architectural design. The other great feature within the fully fenced approximately 766m2 grounds of this property is the impressive 2 bedrooms fully self-contained separate dwelling out back. Being modern construction and super low maintenance it's an appealing second home arrangement that also takes in its own beautiful sea views out to Waiheke Island from its elevated position over the garage. It's also a nice little earner, whether rented full time or running as an Air BnB. The deep tandem garaging set-up is perfect for storing the bucket and spades, paddleboards, the boat and other marine toys and the cars. As an extended family home, holiday house or an investment arrangement, renting either properties or both, this is a fantastic waterfront combination that very rarely becomes available for sale and one you can't afford to miss. Electric gates add a nice element of security. Just a short stroll to the beachfront cafes, famous local wharf, restaurants and Maraetai Boat Club. Plus, you're just a short drive to the 35-minute ferry service to the city.
