Rural sanctuary on prestigious Pahoia Point
Rural sanctuary on prestigious Pahoia Point - for sale for the first time in 17 years, this beautiful waterfront lifestyle property offers absolute privacy, security and serenity.
Less than 20 minutes from Tauranga, situated down a long gated drive, this substantial cedar lodge boasts dynamic harbour panoramas of Omokoroa, Matakana Island and Mount Maunganui.
The 2.8769ha main block and adjoining 3869m2 separate title are home to Heron, Kaka, Kingfisher, Morepork, Hawks and Falcon. Tui feed on native foliage amidst Trish Waugh designed landscaping in park-like grounds that showcase mature trees and shrubs. Pathways meander to organic vegetable gardens, orchards, and a high fenced playing field.
The valuable second title creates future options for another dwelling overlooking the valley.
Designed by architects, 'Babbage Consultants', the impressive cedar lodge includes four plus bedrooms, extensive native timber detail, quality furnishings, vaulted Rimu ceilings, large picture windows and expansive living spaces. A luxurious master suite upstairs affords seclusion and breathtaking views.
Upgrades include a new Palazzo kitchen, diesel boiler radiators, solid fuel fireplace, and air conditioning throughout. Multi level decks and sandstone paving lead to the amazing 15x4m infinity pool by architect John Melhuish (HMA).
The pristine, thermal bore water source is 33 degrees and drinkable, allowing all year round enjoyment. The innovative weir edge overflow system irrigates gardens, ponds and stock troughs. Low maintenance and chemical free, with translucent glass mosaic tiles and push button cover - this pool is stunning. The two large ponds have extensive plantings, creating a native fauna and flora haven. Six paddocks, predominantly post and rail fenced, currently graze a herd of alpacas and have implement sheds, animal shelters and shade trees. Perfect for ponies or a few beefies.
Through the harbourside gate a sandy beach reserve beckons, ideal for picnics, windsurfers, paddle boarding or dingy fishing in the abundant shallows. Retire to the cedar barrel steam room, hot-tub or enjoy cocktails by the beautiful pool.
Marua Lodge is truly unique and stunning in every sense. A peaceful waterfront retreat in total harmony with its idyllic setting.
