This waterfront Awhitu bach for sale is all set up for a classic Kiwi summer

This gorgeous kiwi bach is located on an elevated section set on the water at Matakawau, Awhitu. Its position is unique, one of a few original kiwiana bachs in the area, which sets it apart from the ordinary. When at this property you are at one with the ever changing moods of the seascape. Unbelievable.

Located to embrace the northern aspect, the living area is right at your front door and attracts plenty of sun and natural light, the front of the bach opens out onto a deck where you can sit and enjoy the views and the strong connection to the sea. The beach out front is easily accessed via a walkway along the queens chain and down some steps to the sand.

This charming two-bedroom bach has been owned by one family for more than 59 years, with the time right for a new family to create their own happy memories. Outside, there’s plenty of room for guests to pitch their tents, park a caravan & boat and the kids to play backyard cricket.

Set on 1012sqm with beautiful views, and within the Auckland supercity – where else can you buy a genuine waterfront property for less than the average house price in Auckland? It’s little wonder that this special part of the country is known as the hidden jewel of Auckland’s crown. Matakawau is only 50 minutes leisurely drive from the southern motorway at Drury.

Nearby is an all tide boat ramp for launching your boat into the Manukau Harbour where the fishing in both the inner harbour and out over the bar in the Tasman sea are renown. The Awhitu regional park and golf course is only minutes drive via Matakawau Village or you can take the coastal walkway. On the wild west coast is Hamiltons gap for surfing or take your pick of other inner harbour beaches at WattleBay, Orua bay, Big Bay, Grahams Bay or Hudsons and there are plenty of walking tracks to enjoy when you aren’t lounging around the bach.

Make no mistake about it – these waterfront gems rarely come on the market so this is an opportunity for you and your family to secure a holiday home in a fabulous location.
