Relax and unwind as you escape the city and venture out to experience what the current owners fell in love with 13 years ago when they too were searching for something special. Only 45 mins drive from Hamilton, all on sealed roads, you’ll discover this serene coastal retreat hidden from view and nestled under Mt Karioi. The 5832m2 section includes a stand of native bush, a Nikau Grove and extensive plantings that have been nurtured over the years. Add to this an orchard that includes Avocados, Tahitian Lime, Lemon, Guava, Olive and Fig Trees.

 

The couple camped on site for several years gaining a real feel and connection for their slice of heaven, and experienced first-hand what would be best suited to maximise the many views on offer before enlisting their trusted friend and architect to transform ideas into reality. Those views are panoramic and include the Tasman Sea, Gannet Island, Albatross Point, across to Aotea Harbour, and on a clear day Mt Taranaki. The other unmistakable landmark, Mt Karioi is framed in the glazed gable end of the living pavilion… mimicking a view they used to see zipping the tent flap open in the morning.

 

The resulting three linked gabled structures resemble simple clean lines of Kiwiana farm-like buildings you see peppered over the countryside, yet with a cohesive and contemporary flair of refined style.

 

While it has been a second home for this couple, it could easily be a permanent abode with Ruapuke Beach 5 minutes by car, the Wairake Track/Karioi Summit trail an easy walk from the gate, Raglan only 20 minutes drive, and Ruapuke has an extremely hospitable, welcoming and friendly community encompassing you. If you’re an Aucklander feeling the need to escape the hustle and bustle, it’s only an hour and a half's drive from the Bombay’s and a world away.

 

Homes with this attention to detail, and a style that is both refined and relaxing, seldom come to the market, so if you’re looking for something special, then this is what you will find when you too discover 724b Ruapuke Road for yourself.
