Buy the bach, or build yourself your dream home – the choice is yours

AUTHENTIC holiday baches are hard to find.

So are compact sections on which to build that sought-after bach.

Ray White has both issues covered with this week’s feature property – or “properties” to be precise.

Lot 1 and 2 at 245 Harbour Road, which are being sold subject to the issue of new titles, will suit completely different buyers.

For those wanting to build themselves a bach, or permanent home, with unrestricted views over Ohiwa Harbour there is the 350 square metre section.

Land in Ohope is scarce generally, let alone land with a view, and there are plenty of options here – move on a ready built home or build one to your own specifications, with a design that makes the most of what this particular section of Harbour Road has to offer.

With homes only on one side of the road, and reserve opposite, there are fantastic ever-changing views available whether you go for a one-storey build or something bigger.

The section was once the front lawn of the home behind, which following the subdivision is also for sale.

This three-bedroom, authentic bach, is ready to move into today but this site also offers opportunities for further development in the future with two dwellings possible subject to council planning consent.

Given its elevated position, there is potential here for fantastic views of both the harbour and Ohope Beach.

The home has a definite “bach” vibe about it as far as construction, décor and the eclectic mix of joinery and fittings, which combine to give a homely feel.

At the same time, it is light, bright, and airy with prime views over the harbour from the living area and the master bedroom enjoying its own private deck.

The rent appraisal for this property is between $480 and $530 a week making it a worthwhile proposition for an investor.
