Pure waterfront living

14 Tara Bay Road, Kenepuru Sound, Marlborough Sounds


Asking price: Auction

Surrounded by birdsong, wander the short distance through the native bush to the gently sloping beach and enjoy the benefits of pure waterfront living. On the market for the first time in 22 years after the difficult decision was made to move closer to family leaving this piece of paradise with carefully nurtured landscaped gardens, olive grove, fruit trees, nikau, a grotto and a babbling brook. This genuine Lockwood built by a Master Builder, was architecturally designed specifically for the site in the late 1990s capturing all day sun and sensational water views. In 2003 a Lockwood studio was added to the property built by the same Builder. The interior timbers have mellowed to a perpetual golden glow over the years. An open plan design connects the well appointed kitchen, dining and living spaces with wide opening doors to give a seamless transition to outdoors for entertaining. All three generous bedrooms have built in double wardrobes and direct access to decks. The sunsets are jaw dropping and lying in bed watching the sun rise is like being on permanent holiday. With elevated decks there is ample opportunity to observe and feed tui, fantails, pigeons and quail. With the added bonus of the studio boasting its own log fire, bathroom, large storage cupboard and shelving it is the perfect place to turn into your hobbies room or set up for family staying. The home is serviced by mains power, has a septic tank for waste and riparian rights to an abundant mountain stream for the main water supply. A wood burning fire in the centre of the home radiates warmth throughout with a heat pump located in the second lounge. You can reach Tara Bay in the Golden Mile 45minutes drive from Havelock or 35 minutes by boat. A swing mooring for a vessel up to 10m in length is included in the sale and there is a large community floating jetty in the bay for easy access off and on your boat.
