Live the clifftop dream in Whangarei Heads – yours for the summer – North Shore

Celebrating an incredible clifftop position in Whangarei Heads, this spectacular one-hectare property is a pristine slice of New Zealand paradise. The remarkable estate is home to a 290m2, five bedroom residence –  a dream waterfront retreat just two-and-a-half-hours north of Auckland. It’s available now for discerning buyers who have been searching for the perfect beach house to enjoy this summer.

One of the key drawcards of 696 Taiharuru Road is the peace and privacy it enjoys, with a total of only three properties positioned on the peninsula. Surrounded by farmland and with the water a constant sensorial companion, it’s an inspirational place and true retreat. Lovers of the outdoors will relish the access to the ocean and legendary fishing spots, it’s a hunter gatherer’s paradise filled with fish, kina, paua and crayfish. Taiharuru estuary is located to the west and provides a sheltered environment to kayak and sail.

A long driveway meanders up from the road, arriving at the large residence. It’s sprawled across two expansive levels, designed with a wide frontage so that every room showcases the broad ocean view and its islands – the Poor Knights, Great Barrier and Hen and Chicks. The beauty of the peninsula location and elevation mean 360-degree panorama, with the outlook encompassing both the Pacific Ocean and Ngunguru Bay. Distinctive curved windows and numerous sets of sliding doors bring the outside in and fill the spaces with light and sun, while the wood fire ensures warmth on moody winter days.

Two living rooms, five bedrooms and two bathrooms plus rumpus ensure plenty or space for family and guests, while the inside spills out decks and the vast platforms of flat grass above the cliff.

The in-ground swimming pool and spa complex are an enticing change from time spent at the beach, or the perfect way to end long summer days. The stand-alone, four-car garaging and vast concrete parking areas create more than enough space for all the toys. The property is also flanked by two fully-fenced paddocks.

The current owners bought the property three years ago, dazzled by the idyllic scenery and breathtaking natural landscape. With work and life commitments requiring more time spent on the North Shore, they’re making it available to market so that an astute purchaser can procure a legacy for their family.
