This gorgeous 4 bedroom waterfront heritage cottage sits on 6728 sqm of elevated coastal land overlooking the picturesque inner Mangonui Harbour. The property is a serene oasis of old-worldly charm, tucked away down a long curved drive, fringed with large trees, gardens and park like grounds. It also offers the convenience of being just a few minutes walk from the shops, cafes and restaurants of the historic Mangonui Village.
The cottage has been restored and renovated in keeping with its heritage status to retain an authentic colonial layout and feel. Grand wooden staircases lead up to a wrap around Victorian style covered veranda and two main guest entrances. On the northern side a private open air wooden terrace provides a perfect spot to bask in the sun and take in the sea air. Inside living areas are semi-open plan and full of character, with lots of exposed timber and period detail. These spaces include two lounges, a dining room and a centrally positioned kauri kitchen. Both lounges open to the decks via french doors and the home is warmed by a combination of fireplaces and heat pumps. A hallway connects living areas with the master and a large office (or fourth bedroom). A very well appointed bathroom is located off the kitchen. Upstairs includes 2 spacious double bedrooms with all 3 bedrooms and the office enjoying lovely garden views.
The gardens and grounds are divided into two zones, manicured lawns and gardens around the home and a more wild fenced paddock that slopes down to the water below. Gardens include an olive grove of abundantly producing trees, established fruit trees and a vege patch. A covered carport adjoining the cottage provides all weather entry into the service area of the home. The land is held in two titles and commercially zoned. A unique and very special property with loads of character and appeal.
