Potential in Paradise 1012m2 of prime coastal land

Boasting impressive dimensions, an exceptional location and infinite potential, this Rothesay Bay retreat equally suits dream home-seekers and astute developers. Spanning 1012m2 of flat freehold land, the property showcases sensational views of the Hauraki Gulf from its elevated position. Mixed Housing Urban zoning presents many development possibilities, limited only to the new owner’s motivation.

The current owners have lived here for the past seven years and have loved the proximity to the beach. Hyde Road is a quiet cul-de-sac, with number 32 is just six back from the coastal reserve at the end of the street. From here, Rothesay Bay, the peaceful locals beach is an easy stroll to the south, while glorious Browns Bay is accessed via a walkway to the north. Browns Bay’s village offers a vast array of shopping, dining and amenities, and school zones include Browns Bay School, Murrays Bay Intermediate, Northcross Intermediate and Rangitoto College.

An impressive rock wall protects the property from the road and has electric pedestrian and vehicle gates. Inside the compound there is space to park up to eight cars, a boat and a caravan, with a separate single garage/ shed plus double internal garaging. The flat lawns and gardens extend up either side of the house, creating accessible space for new driveways if required.

The original residence was extended in the ‘70s to create an elongated home that captures sun all day. Polished timber floors and high ceilings create a spacious living environment for families. The open-plan lounge, dining and modern kitchen spaces flow out to the incredibly private, yet very generous outdoor living at the rear. Paved terraces, decks and well-established gardens create wonderful alfresco entertaining spaces, with the in-ground Cascade swimming pool perfect for summer fun. The fact that the pool is slightly raised means children swimming are always in sight.

There are two bedrooms serviced by the family bathroom along the hallway, before a small flight of stairs arrives up at the master retreat. This well separated space has its own lounge and deck, which captures sensational views of Rangitoto and the Hauraki Gulf. With its own bedroom and bathroom, this area could also be closed off for extended family or use as an Air BnB.

Downstairs, the internally-accessed garage boasts plenty of space and a separate laundry, with a chute from the level above.

The dimensions, ease of access and elevated coastal position make this vast land holding a very enticing prospect for developers. Alternatively, this comfortable and well-maintained residence could be renovated and modernised to add value, creating a dream home by the sea.
