Once in a Lifetime, Ultimate Waterfront Opportunity

Available for the first time in over 50 years, number 63 Rothesay Bay Road presents an unparalleled opportunity to live the waterfront dream. Only one up from the beach and with direct water access, it’s easy to see why this coastal estate has been cherished within the same family since the 60s. Spanning a colossal 1476m2 of freehold land, this is a once-in-a-lifetime chance for an astute purchaser.

Peaceful and pristine Rothesay Bay is known as a local’s beach, favoured for its quiet location and no through-road. Regarded as somewhat of a hidden gem, it’s safe for swimming, kayaking and paddleboarding, and ideal to launch boats from. It’s adjacent to a large reserve for picnics and playing and enjoys spectacular sunrises.

Rothesay Bay located between the vibrant coastal villages of Mairangi and Browns Bay, both which offer a vast array of shops, supermarkets and drinking and dining options.  The coastal walkway links all the East Coast Bays and is an easy way to explore each – Murrays with its iconic sailing club and Mairangi with its popular surf club.

Excellent schools are all within walking distance, including Murrays Bay Primary and Intermediate and Rangitoto College. The esteemed address is in illustrious company and the sought-after neighbourhood offers an exceptional, enviable lifestyle for those of all ages.

With a perfect, prominent northerly aspect, the property celebrates pure panorama. An extraordinary grandstand position showcases 180 degree views of the Hauraki Gulf. It’s a true ocean-lover’s sanctuary, with the sounds of the sea and waves lapping the shore below and riparian rights meaning private beach access.  The site is enveloped within mature grounds and gardens, with areas of gently sloping lawn extending all the way to the cliff’s edge. A stone staircase arrives down at the water for swimming off the rocks.

It’s currently occupied by the charming, two-bedroom original holiday home, positioned at the road end of the site. This could be kept as a summer retreat to enjoy, or used as temporary accommodation while plans are drawn up for a brand new dream home. The dimensions, proportions and aspect of the property mean design is limited only to imagination.

This is a rare and exiting opportunity to create a dazzling waterfront dream home in glorious Rothesay Bay.
