An Enchanting Coastal Retreat - Selling $70,000 Below GV
Masterton, 8 Puk Lane, Flat Point Beach
Grandchildren and a desire to experience living on a pristine coastline ' far from the madding crowds' has inspired the building of this unique coastal home with its expansive deck and unrestrictive views of the sea, reef, golf course and coastal hills.
The present owners' design of 'The Snow Goose' with their architect's specifications has created a spacious and delightful holiday retreat at Flat Point Beach, accessible for all ages. Granny does not need to climb the front steps; she can be driven round to the back and walk straight from the car to the deck and once inside there are no stairs for her to negotiate. Macrocarpa, matai, elm and rimu timbers reflect the sun in summer and the flames from the woodburner in winter. One 600 year old rimu pillar is a sentimental treasure from another building once owned by the family.
Enchantment begins when the shipping diary on the coffee table is opened; here the family have recorded where possible the names, directions and dates of ships which have passed on the horizon within view of people in the 12 metre x 5 metre lounge. And the grandchildren will always remember after dinner dancing on the 5x 5 metre blue tiled kitchen floor.
The secluded beach with its rock pools and safe swimming within the reef is only a 2 minute walk from 'The Snow Goose', along a serpentine track through flax and native grasses. Once on the beach the children can slide down the sand dunes or paddle about the rock pools while dad dives for crayfish along the reef or surfs the mighty Pacific Ocean.
Boat launching and quad bike escapades are via a private right of way secured to the title. This home is serviced with 2 x 22500 litre concrete water tanks and has its own eco friendly sewage treatment system.
