Historic Homestead on Waiheke Waterfront
House - Ostend Auckland
Seated on the enchanting terrace of this magical abode, we awaited the vendor’s arrival for a meeting, maintaining a reverent silence. It felt almost sacrilegious to disrupt the harmonious symphony of nature enveloping us – the rhythmic cadence of water ebbing and flowing in the bay below, playful Tui birds frolicking amidst the Nikau trees, and the distant hum of a fishing boat embarking on its oceanic journey. As we completely relaxed, a gentle breeze whispered through the majestic Pohutakawa, on the cusp of bursting into its festive bloom.
For twenty-six splendid years, the current owners have savoured the twilight of their lives in this historic homestead, finding respite after years of bustling activity around the globe led them to a peaceful retirement. This home has proudly graced its half-acre perch, silently witnessing the unfolding tapestry of Waiheke’s world. Standing here, it’s easy to feel transported to the same moment all those years ago – central yet secluded, offering unparalleled serenity just moments from Ostend yet gracefully distant from the village hum. The character and heritage of the home are preserved as meticulously as its magnificent ambiance.
Boasting four bedrooms, two bathrooms, a kitchen with traditional formal dining, a cozy lounge, vaulted ceilings, and celebrated native timbers, the residence also features three outdoor terraces, each offering views as breathtaking as the last. After nurturing this haven for twenty-six years, countless moments of joy and cherished memories have been woven into its fabric.
Recognising the potential of the property, the vendors seized an opportunity: resource consent has been granted to subdivide the three titles. Whether you choose to build your own rental opportunity, sell a portion of the land, gift it to a loved one, or plant an orchard, the possibilities are endless.
