Paradise retreat

1 Watkins Street, Purakaunui


+ Boatshed M10179 (for sale separately)

Breathtaking views and all day sun await you in this paradise setting with abundant native birdlife. Perfectly positioned above the Purakaunui Inlet, this appealing home has just the right blend of modern and iconic kiwiana. Originally built in the 1960s, it has been extended and then extensively improved by the current owners, including level off-street parking, single garaging with internal access, ceiling and wall insulation, fully double glazed, heatpump and woodburner, Colorsteel roof, Shadowclad with cedar batons, an extensive hardwood deck (cladding and decking architecturally designed by Paul Goldsmith) and a beautifully landscaped, terraced garden by Paul Ashford.

Whether you are seeking a home or a private retreat this is perfect. The peaceful seaside settlement of Purakaunui is situated about a 15min beautiful rural drive from Port Chalmers, which takes about the same time from the city, so it's not a world away. From Purakaunui Road turn left onto Mopanui Street and you'll find number 1 Watkins Street - park where you can and then head down the hill to the inlet.


There's also a boatshed (for sale separately) that has been fully refurbished and is clad in marine grade colorsteel. You have to walk a short way after parking (its opposite 82 Bay Road if you use Google Maps) including walking down a track to the boatshed, so sensible footwear and care is recommended.

Homes in this picturesque settlement are tightly held, so don't miss this rare opportunity to acquire your very own slice of paradise.

Centrally heated by a ducted heatpump system, modern elements combine seamlessly without detracting from the glorious period features of this magnificent home. 


Alongside Aorangi sits a second home, "The Tui House" that was constructed by the owners in 2004 to reside in while they extensively improved Aorangi. Light and fresh, this home offers modern accommodation consisting of three bedrooms, all with ensuite bathrooms, with a central kitchen and living room.
