Wellspring is a beautiful property in the nature of a sanctuary set on 11 acres of land with lawns, gardens and mature bush and directly overlooking the waters of the Manukau Harbour.

The large multi level house is built into the contour of the hillside and is filled with light and sun. There are spectacular views from all rooms. From the front of the house you can watch the sunrises over the water and the ever changing vista of sky and sea and from the back you can bask in the afternoon sun and enjoy the vista of sweeping lawn and mature forest.

The massive front deck is a wonderful place for alfresco dining, gazing at the views , and enjoying the multifarious birdlife and the presence of the kauris which stand sentinel.

The property leads directly onto the Armour Bay Reserve with its extensive grassy and picnic areas, tennis courts, kids playground, child friendly beach and clifftop bush walk.
