Soak up stunning coastal views in this 4-bedroom Torbay home for sale

Tucked back from the road in one of olde Torbay’s quiet neighbourhoods, this 623m2 freehold property on Ringwood Street showcases magical views of the Hauraki Gulf, Winstone’s Cove and the Tor.

Torbay village shops are just a short stroll away and the Auckland CBD just 25 minutes off-peak. So while life at home feels like a peaceful coastal retreat, great cafes, shops and restaurants are all within easy proximity. The area is renowned for its gorgeous local beaches – Winstone’s Cove, accessed via a short walking track from home, Waiake and its boat ramp, plus Long Bay’s pristine Regional Park.  Lovers of the outdoors enjoy the swimming, fishing or boating opportunities so close to home, as well as the opportunity to enjoy walks along a choice of beaches every day.

The two level home is presented in largely original condition, but has been well-maintained over the years and fitted with a modern kitchen. A private courtyard and area of flat lawn at the front entrance is framed with established gardens, plus is fenced to keep kids and pets safe. The separate double garage boasts plenty of storage and a workshop area.

Entry level is on the top floor, where large picture windows in both the separate lounge and dining room showcase the incredible outlook. The view extends all the way down the East Coast Bays, with nautical activity and weather patterns creating an ever-changing landscape. Features like the polished timber floors and elegant cornices add charm to the home, with the gas fireplace for winter warmth and the deck for summer entertaining.

There are three bedrooms and a bathroom located on this level, while the remaining bedroom and second bathroom are found downstairs. An expansive lawn out the back is the ideal place for kids to play, with plenty of room for a trampoline, veggie garden or even a swimming pool.

The incredible coastal location, freehold section and character home present many possibilities for buyers. Whether purchased as a family home or idyllic holiday retreat, there is significant potential to develop and add value.
