About this listing
The outstanding, iconic beauty of New Zealand's Bay of Islands can be appreciated from virtually every window of this elevated home.

Wide, spacious decks and intimate mature garden add to the relaxing ambiance.
This home has been owned by artists and art is a core feature here. It has drawn visits from internationally famous artists from all over the world. The Austrian artist, Frederick Hundertwasser has even sketched on the veranda ceiling!

The separate artist's studio is a work of art in its own right and enjoys, like the main home, similar views across Waipiro Bay and the sparkling water to the islands beyond.
This home's unique and creative design has a very well sheltered North facing aspect taking full advantage of the sun's year-round warmth.

Easy access to the beach below is via a private path through the bush to a communal road access or by road if launching your boat.

Lending itself to family holidays as well a wonderful place to live, this home has a local surf beach only minutes away to the east and the historic town of Russell only a short drive away.

Having four bedrooms on two levels, three with stunning views over the water and one facing West with a balcony, relax with a glass of wine whilst watching the summer sun set beyond the hills and ask yourself, "can life really be this good"?
