About this listing

SOLD - This listing was sold in January 2019.

Dreaming of a cottage by the sea? This gorgeous weatherboard beach house across the road from Wainui Beach and looking out across Akaroa Harbour will make your dreams come true. Stylishly renovated while retaining its coastal character, this is a warm and welcoming weekend getaway for family and friends - be it summer boating or winter days sharing a vino by the fireside.

Step inside this charming property and feel yourself relax. The open-plan living and dining space invites quality time with loved ones. Throw open the French doors to hear the sea or hunker down in front of the log-burner and enjoy uninterrupted water views. A pitched ceiling adds charm, while crisp white walls are the perfect backdrop to your own personal style. The kitchen is unpretentious and appealing, yet very practical, boasting a 90 cm oven and five-burner gas cooktop to make catering a breeze. There are three delightful bedrooms (two double, one single) and one bathroom.

At the rear of the property, a secure boatshed with three additional rooms attached. With a largely original interior, retro flavour makes this a classic Kiwi bach - heaps of fun when guests come to visit!

Outside, the 999 sqm grounds are large enough to accommodate tents, cricket matches or even weddings with ease. Fully fenced for children and pets, it is landscaped for ease of maintenance, but includes fruit trees, herbs and veges. In the sheltered rear garden is a superb covered entertaining area with views of the hills and, at the front, a magnificent oak provides a shady spot from which to contemplate the sea.

Close to the Wainui tennis courts, boat ramp and, of course, the beach, you simply couldn't pick a better location than this - and, what's more, the section offers the possibility of future subdivision.

This beach house has served the owners well through the last decade (and more) with warmth, loads of room for family and friends, and a perfect location: imagine boating in the Akaroa Marine Reserve, visiting salmon and mussel farms so close by, walks up the Wainui Valley, four-wheel-driving high in the hills ... a soul-satisfying antidote to city life, around an hour from Christchurch!

On the market for only the second time in 45 years, it's clear that this is a very special property. Seize the opportunity to make it yours and by Christmas you could be enjoying the first of many unforgettable summers here. Owners new project well underway, hence this property is now available to the market. Call today to find out more.
