Sea Views Over Pearl Bay
Beds: 2 Baths: 1


Pearl Bay is within the Matuku Marine Reserve that was signed off in 2003, public access to the bay is by foot or boat only. There are several residential properties in and surrounding the bay with exclusive vehicular access, a small number have permanent residents while the majority are baches, affording a relaxed holiday ambience with a strong sense of community.

Locally known as “The Tower House”, this holiday bach exudes an irresistible quirky charm, offering the quintessential kiwi holiday reminiscent of yesteryear, a combination of Hobbiton, The Old Woman Who Lived in a Shoe and, perhaps, The 13 Storey Tree House. It shouldn’t be difficult to encourage the kids to drop their devices and be inspired to explore, OR… make it your permanent retreat.

Dwelling is set on a 2,140m2 site with favourable contour for a building platform. It has been owned by a collective of families and a treasured getaway for over 40 years. Now it is time for fresh eyes with new imagination to ignite.

Nestled back from the clifftop above Pearl Bay and surrounded by quality bush that affords a privacy that is further enhanced by a gated road. The bay is a short walk from the bottom of the section, you can launch the boat off the trailer or drive the Sealegs down a concreted drive. Your long-drop and well-appointed bush bath are blessed with views if not modern facilities, however, if you are so inclined, it will be relatively simple to bring these up to today’s standards, making the first step towards future development. The kitchen/lounge is both spatial and cosy offering basic but adequate facilities including an electric hot water cylinder and wood stove. The tower is separate and houses two large double bedrooms on two levels.

After a long day lounging in the bay, sit on the deck and relax with a glass of wine, feeling the stress of a busy life recede with the sunset. Match your wine with the view… out to Passage Rock.

Sea views don’t get any cheaper. Buy a future legacy that will stretch far beyond …
