This Waiheke Island estate is an 84 acre slice of heaven

Waiheke island is fast becoming recognised as one of the world’s top holiday destinations. Lonely Planet recently voted the island as one of the best places to visit in the region and Conde’ Nast Travellers also voted Waiheke as the 4th best island in the world ahead of Bermuda, Bali and Santorini! So if you want the best of the best, then this property along with its surrounding bays and native reserves has to be viewed to be experienced.

Kauaroa Bay Estate has everything a discerning buyer would wish for in an exclusive home or holiday escape. Complete privacy, comfort and peace and yet less than an hour by fast ferry and vehicle from Auckland city. A solid licensed jetty allows for travel by water (with a 90m2 boat shed) or the helipad provides the quickest trip from the city in less than 7 minutes (or slightly longer from the International Airport).

This homestead is so exclusive its only had four owners since it was founded in the 1800s. Comprised of 84 acres of lush pastureland spread over 14 paddocks, there’s plenty of room for horticulture. Perhaps graze some alpaca or grow your own wine label? A caretaker lives onsite and a well cared for vegetable and herb garden is also ready to enjoy.

The main home has five bedrooms, two lounges, a study room and a temperature controlled wine cellar – ready for your own label if you choose to plant some vines. A caretaker’s cottage and two guest houses are also sited just back from over 2km of private riparian water frontage and 450 metres of your own beach. An entertainment area with a gazebo, an outdoor fire and pizza oven, a large infinity pool and spa and a tennis court complete the picture. Perfect as a very exclusive home, a holiday estate or a private re-treat.
