Piha Paradise 

This incredible 1900m2 Piha property is a true slice of coastal paradise. Located on the tightly-held and highly sought-after Garden Road ridge, the residence showcases panoramic, unobstructed views of one of New Zealand’s most iconic surf beaches. The beauty of the position is that it’s just a five-minute walk from The Piha Store and The Piha Café for the newspaper, food and great coffee.

Originally crafted in the 1920s, number 28 is an immaculately-presented character home that’s fully immersed within the special landscape. In fact, the property is a major part of Piha history, with the foreman from the old mill believed to have resided here, due to the railway tracks that used to pass out front. Masterful craftsmanship and solid Rimu and Kauri have stood the test of time, with all the elements of the heritage design beautifully retained inside.

The home is designed to face out towards the water, capturing the sights, scents and sounds of the sea from every angle. Spanning the entire length of the beach and Lion Rock, there’s always something to see and although the outlook is wide and open, the raised position means no one looks in. The beach can be easily accessed via the public walking track next door, or directly through the bush at the base of the property.

Inside, a wonderful world of original panelling, joinery and stained glass create a warm, welcoming and comfortable ambiance. The open-plan living and dining areas flow out to the sundrenched deck and sweeping vistas of sun, sand and surf. Mature trees and hedges provide excellent protection and the gazebo a restful place to relax. The kitchen was elegantly modernised 10 years ago, accommodating high-quality new appliances and more space and light.

Two of the three bedrooms are serviced by the main bathroom and separate toilet, while the luxurious master has its own ensuite and French doors opening out to the deck.

The grounds have been developed by the current owners over the past 26 years, with the creation of stone pathways, well-established gardens and numerous alfresco living areas located around the generous site. It’s positioned behind a security gate, ensuring an excellent sense of peace and privacy. An extra special spot is the private one-bedroom sleepout, which with its own deck, is the perfect romantic spot for an evening glass of wine.

The magical views, character design and beautifully-established grounds make this Piha property the perfect holiday retreat or permanent residence.
