Rare slice of coastal bush paradise

Web Ref#FNC10369

Elevated above Doubtless Bay facing North-West and surrounded by approximately 2,400 ha of mature native forest, this stunning and rare 1.6960 bush block enjoys superb views and unparalleled peace and privacy just up the road from Hihi Beach and approximately 15 minutes drive from the Mangonui Village Centre.

The property includes a stand of majestic old growth forest (inclusive of Kauri, Rimu and Beech trees), a well-built 75 sqm studio with three phase power, and an unconsented house from the 1990s, with multiple potential building sites that could accommodate a more substantial home.

The property is positioned on a sheltered bush clad hilltop approximately 5 minutes drive from Hihi Beach and within the Whakaangi Landcare Trust area. Thanks to pest control work undertaken by the Trust the forest is in great condition and home to a diverse range of native birds, including New Zealands most northerly kiwi population. The setting is wonderfully peaceful and quiet and the potential building sites on this property enjoy a sunny and sheltered microclimate, nestled into large trees along the southern boundary.

The 75 sqm studio was built in 2002 to accommodate a pottery studio and is completely open plan with a timber and concrete floor and a large sunny front deck. This space could easily be converted into a lovely little holiday home or sleepout that could serve as a base camp while development plans are progressed. The larger unconsented building on site was previously lived in but is in a state of disrepair. Surrounding this building are a number of possible building site options (including possibly removing the building) to take advantage of the range of varied views through surrounding trees.

NOTE: A Safe & Sanitary Report on the Studio was undertaken in 2003.

Properties in this location and with this combination of unique attributes rarely come up for sale.
