PARADISE: Pohutukawa-framed views of the ocean make this property a top spot to relax and unwind. Photos Open2view

SITUATED in an area of unparalleled natural beauty, halfway between Te Kaha and Maraehako on the glorious east coast, this is the perfect coastal escape you have been looking for.

This 8098-square-metre (two acre) property with two chalets as well as the main house is spacious enough for your entire extended family, or for someone wanting to provide home-stay accommodation. The possibilities are endless.

The buildings overlook the ocean, to make the most of coastal living, while extensive grassed areas stretch from the home to the state highway creating a buffer zone that provides a complete sanctuary from the rest of the world.

The weathered, marine-grade plywood cladding sits naturally at home amid native bush, and pohutukawa frames the sea views for that true paradise-on-earth feel.

The tidy, modern homes are divided into a main, one-bedroom house and two chalets, so a couple can live quite separately from other family members or guests.

The main house has a spacious, tiled, open-plan lounge, dining and kitchen area and extensive, partially covered decking to the north and west, overlooking the ocean.

The kitchen is generously-sized and modern with lots of cupboard space, white tiled splashbacks behind the gas stovetop and double sinks – perfect for cooking for large groups.

As well as the en suite bathroom, there is a separate guest toilet connected to the laundry.

The interiors in both the main house and the chalets have a Mediterranean vibe with fresh, white-painted walls and timber ceilings.

The chalets are both two-bedroom units, one two-storeyed with two bathrooms and the other a one-level unit with open-plan kitchenette and lounge, also opening onto a large north-facing deck.

The property includes garaging for two vehicles.

The sale is by negotiation, with the vendors expecting interest over $800,000 plus gst, if any. Be sure to view this rare opportunity to own you own slice of paradise.
