One of the Few
When you think of 'Old Mapua' in your mind's eye you'll likely see pictures of traditional family baches, large sections and ever-changing estuary views. Most of these vintage homes are long gone now, so I'm delighted to be marketing one of the few good examples left.
This property was built around 1955 and has all of the above and more. Estuary frontage with direct access to the shoreline, a vintage home, half an acre of grounds with plenty of parking, plus the original old boathouse, too!
The light and airy residence has been modernised over the years and comprises two bedrooms, a combined kitchen-diner, a laundry, bathroom and a north-facing lounge with two sets of sliders opening to the terraces. Watch the ebb and flow of the tide and the sunshine on the ranges from the comfort of your fireside chair in the winter or the sun-kissed deck in summer.
The home benefits from its north facing position and features wall heaters, a Pyroclassic® wood fire and a Stanley® stove. Plush carpet in the lounge and the cooker and dishwasher in the kitchen provide a touch of the 21st century, enabling you to shift in and settle before making any decisions on what changes you want to make. Indeed, the level of scope and space is astounding. With the appropriate consents, you could re-vamp the home, rebuild, subdivide, or just enjoy the place as a coastal bolt-hole for professionals, a family, or simply those with busy working lives.
I don't need to tell you that Mapua is delightful. Restaurants, cafes and boutique shops at the Wharf are a stroll away from this property, as are the library, the dairy, park, primary school and health centre. Cycle the Taste Tasman Trail, beach comb, or launch the kayaks from your lawn. What a fantastic place in which to live and raise a family!
Our vendors are keen to move on with their new life plan, so it's imperative that you contact me now. Properties sell extremely quickly in the village and this will be no exception.
