Superb residence offers superior family living
By C Scott A spectacular 770sqm home with a classic timeless design and built by craftsman builders to the very highest standards, is now for sale at a highly desirable address in Western Ave, Omokoroa. Exuding warmth and welcome, this gracious six-bedroom residence is the ultimate peaceful retreat, with a special atmosphere that’s obvious from the moment you enter the tree-lined drive. Featuring a multitude of special features, the very special home has an atrium entrance foyer, with linked living areas spread along the ground floor and balconied bedrooms above. A media room, guest accommodation, six bathrooms, comprehensive utility and storage space, garaging and garden pavilion complete a highly flexible interior which you will easily adapt to your lifestyle and family needs. There’s also future proofing in the form of a hydraulic lift. Maintenance isn’t a problem thanks to the home’s solid masonry construction, which has the added protection of copper pointed cedar weatherboards, triple layer cedar roof shingles and copper spouting. Double glazing throughout highlights an obvious commitment to quality. The property is being marketed by Brent and Rhys Trueman of Bayleys Tauranga, who say life at this wonderful spot is enhanced by water views over Omokoroa’s highly regarded 18-hole golf course on the boundary of the 1ha (more or less) grounds. “There’s plenty of room to cater for a crowd or have multiple people helping in the fabulously spacious and beautifully appointed kitchen,” says Brent. “And there are lots of spots to relax outdoors, including outside the family room, and beside the inground swimming pool and cabana.” A formal living room provides a grand sense of occasion and there are separate dining and family rooms. Around the home there are endless places to follow the sun, or shade, around the home. Hunker down when the weather is cooler with an open fire and you’ll be perfectly warm, as the entire house has underfloor heating from the property’s private warm water bore. The immaculate property is perfect for an active family – you can play tennis on a floodlit all-weather court, or indoor games in the pavilion with ensuite and covered pergola. A spray-free orchard with 19 varieties of fruit, nuts and vines ensures there’s a constant supply of fresh produce, while the parklike grounds are planted with mature exotic trees, with a lovely stand of native trees in one corner. “If you demand the very best in life, this home’s aspect and layout and it’s abundant peaceful privacy will certainly appeal as it will exceed the highest expectations for relaxation and recreation,” says Rhys. “It’s designed to maximise the joy you’ll get from an environment that easily caters for large-scale entertaining and will delight generations of family members. And when the children leave the lights on - no problem: one switch at the front door turns all of them off!” The home’s wonderful location also leaves nothing to be desired. As well as being right next to one of the best 18-hole golf courses in the entire Bay of Plenty right on the shores of Tauranga Harbour. Located on a sunny peninsula jutting out into Tauranga Harbour, Omokoroa has an ever-growing line up of schools, shops and services, and community recreational facilities. When you need to go to the city, the property is just 21kms from downtown Tauranga. It’s also within easy distance of several local attractions including Te Puna Quarry Park and many other beautiful parks and reserves.
