Who Would Have Believed?

A true gem. A property that we get asked for but until now, has only been on offer in the distant past!

This precious Russell offering sits above the township and is in easy walking distance to all that lies below, beaches, shops, school, ferries, bars, clubs and restaurants.
The building itself is an old army cabin, renovated into a welcome holiday residence which in its past, was a permanent family home to a well-known and respected family in the area.

The position of this property is such that it allows for views across to Waitangi, scanning south past Paihia, Te Haumi and closer to home, the Russell basin.

Possibilities to build beyond the existing home would allow for the inclusion of views down to Long Beach and the Islands of the Bay to the east and North.
The true blessing of the position on this property is the proximity of all that Russell offers but still retains a sense of privacy.

The 3.2628 hectares (more or less) has so many possibilities. It is however one of those rare finds that will require much consideration as to what and how to make the most of its unique position.

Retaining the charm that it possesses and keeping it as a family get away for now and the future. An investment property that will only expand in value as land becomes more and more scarce in the area. A possible subdivision, making the most of the large land size and the various views this would create.

A possible business opportunity for accommodation - a Fishing Lodge, a Luxury Retreat or something more unique.

Or the idyllic space to build a once in a life time dream home.
