Xtra Special Sanctuary In the Heart of Matakana

This family home is special. Very special.

Tucked away at the end of a cul-de-sac in the heart of Matakana, our owners have loved the 3 minute flat walk to the centre of Matakana Village with its eateries, shops, cafes, pub and the famous Saturday Market. You will too - your very own secret sanctuary right in town.

The home is immaculately presented, modern, light and airy.

As you drive through the front gates you are greeted by a Cedar-clad covered entranceway framing dual opening Cedar doors. The welcoming formal entry hall draws you through to the central hub of the home which is open plan living at its best.

The main lounge area features an Inglenook Fireplace and a large log burner on a granite slab. The living, dining and kitchen areas all have direct access to the rear deck which offers views over the very 'private' landscaped gardens, mature trees, down to the water's edge and then over to the hills and trees beyond. This is New Zealand landscape at its best.

The Kitchen is well designed and includes a Smeg oven and induction hob, fully integrated dish drawer and glass splash backs, Blum fittings and soft close drawers.

Enjoy mornings at the breakfast bar or use the large kitchen slider window for easy outside dining. The side kitchen door leads out to a covered deck and then straight to a kitchen courtyard area with 4 large raised vege beds and a covered log store.

The 2nd lounge area (formally bedroom 4) has stackers that open onto a sheltered, more intimate deck area. The large Master Bedroom has sliders opening to the rear garden, a large corner window seat and en suite bathroom. A further 2 double bedrooms are at the other end of this home, along with a Rumpus and Office area.

The 3 bathrooms are fully tiled and have underfloor heating.

Double glazing throughout and a heat transfer system.

Internal access to the double garage with a remote controlled double garage door.

Alarm system and outside light sensor.

We said this home is pretty special and it is.

The views are breathtaking and it has direct private River access through the back garden taking you and your dingy or kayak directly out to the new Sandspit Marina or paddle the other way to the Matakana Wharf. Matakana Primary School (soon to be zoned) is also a 3 minute flat walk the other way and there are no roads to cross.

The rear garden is all about lifestyle and the views. Lifestyle means a low maintenance, landscaped garden with a flat lawn and established flower beds, all weed matted and mulched. But that is just the beginning, because you have a clear pathway leading you down to the water's edge (which could be fenced off if need be.)

Numerous fruit trees - grapefruit, plum, peach, crab apple, mandarin, fejoa, lemon trees.

Mature native trees border the garden and rivers edge.

Undercover log stores, and a garden shed...what more could you want.

Originally built in 2003, it has been extended and renovated throughout to high standards in 2011 by local award winning builder Mark Wilson. A great family home or just a beautiful home for 1 or 2 with plenty of space for visiting family and friends, could also work well as a B&B.

The options are numerous. Live and enjoy the outlook, the access to town, the privacy.

Call us today, viewings are strictly by appointment to see this hidden sanctuary and prepare to smile, this home is stunning.
