HARBOUR LIVING: Located next to a handy jetty, this home is perfectly located to enjoy harbour life. Photos Open2view

YOU can’t get any closer to Ohiwa Harbour than this without getting your feet wet.

This up-market 1970s brick and tile home has been built in a prime location, with the superb views across the harbour given first order of importance.

The home is separated into two fully self-contained accommodations, making this home perfect for someone wanting both a home and income, or for someone looking for a place suitable to accommodate elderly parents or other extended family.

The first part is the large, three-bedroom family home and adjoining it is a fully self-contained and luxuriously spacious one-bedroom apartment that enjoys an equally beautiful view of the harbour.

This apartment comes complete with kitchen, laundry, large bathroom and a walk-in wardrobe.

Together, the two accommodations cover 190 square metres, all on one level, and are set on an 847sqm section. Although the apartment has been updated, with a modern kitchen and bathroom, the larger home is ready to be given a new lease of life. While it could be lived in as is, the location and the home’s great bones make it well worth the effort of making improvements. Just a quick walk through the home brings the imagination alive with the possibilities. Someone could have a lot of fun with this redo.

The lounge opens to the harbour to the south while to the north is a wide hallway that captures all day sun and would make a wonderful conservatory. This space overlooks a private lawn area shared with the master bedroom.

The family kitchen area is huge and, together with the large dining area and the lounge, makes up the wing of the main house that overlooks the harbour. The three double bedrooms are along a hallway. The master bedroom comes with an en suite toilet.

The main bathroom is separated into four separate spaces, one each for vanity, toilet, bath and shower and takes up a huge amount of space – enough that there is plenty of space to create a large family bathroom and still save room for a second en suite for the front bedroom.

The property also has a separate garage with a built-in office or storage space at the front of the house. A carport or boat parking area and two garden sheds provide further storage.
