Western Homes : January 17th 2013
2 Thursday, January 17, 2013 Western Homes Holiday luxury: The perfect spot to relax in the afternoon sun. Kiwiana at its best Relaxed living: This one bedroom abode is fresh, simple and low maintenance. Spacious section: Plenty of space for visitors to pitch tents during the summer. Functional living: While maintaining that all essential holiday feel, the house's renovated kitchen provides plenty of storage and all the essentials. Tucked away in one of Auckland's most desirable beach locations is a taste of absolute kiwiana heaven. Directly across the road from the sand dunes of Piha beach, the one bedroom beach house at 65 Marine Parade North is in a prime position, looking directly at the famous Lion Rock and the pictur- esque shoreline and waves of north Piha. With that all essential hol- iday home feel, the one bed- room main dwelling is every- thing a beach house should be with a fully functional kitchen, one bathroom and double bedroom. Enjoying the benefits of large glass windows throughout, the house's open plan main hub allows access to the gorgeous sea view from every angle in the kitchen, lounge and din- ing area. The property's separate bunkhouse' at the rear of the main house is perfect for the kids or teenagers and opens out onto a courtyard shaded by a pohutukawa tree. A great place to escape the mid summer sun and read a book, the area is also ideal for outdoor dining with room for the barbecue, built in bench seats, picnic tables and a cosy outdoor fireplace. The house's front porch is a great spot to sunbathe or enjoy a charming sunset. Only metres from the ocean, the afternoon sun and clear sound of waves crashing create the ambience for a per- fect holiday setting. Built on 953 square metres of land, whether you decide to use the property to build your dream home, or to continue to utilise it as a family bach, there is room for friends and the whole family with plenty of open space at the front of the section for tents or caravans. The property's beach front location on the North side of Piha leaves the ocean liter- ally at your doorstep. Local amenities such as The Gen- eral Store, cafe , bowling club and RSA are just a five min- ute walk away. In a top location which sums up the perfect kiwi get- away, this fabulous property is an incredible piece of real estate. There will be an open home for the property on Sunday January 20. It will be auctioned at 34 Shortland Street, Auckland City on Friday February 22 at 10am. For more information and photos visit http:/ /www.barfoot.co.nz/489591 or phone Sven Higham on 021 0260 5057.
