Description

  • Surrounded by native bush for privacy with all day sun and views of the sea from the living areas
  • Huge front deck, flat lawn and large deck out back, secure and suitable for kids to play freely
  • Quirky bridges and benches situated along the many twisting limestone paths following the stream.

The Queen Charlotte drive is an outstandingly picturesque route between Picton and Havelock along the shores of the Queen Charlotte and Kenepuru Sounds in the Marlborough Sounds.

There are many holiday homes and life style dwellings dotted along the road surrounded by the bush and the sea.

This is one of those homes and is sited over the road from the Mahakipawa arm of the Mahau Sound. It is set back in the bush for privacy and appeal. The bach has been given a stylish urban renovation bringing the best of all worlds together in this remarkable property.

A small stream runs through the land down to the nearby sea and has quirky bridges and benches with twisted limestone paths following the stream. The almost level site is guarded at the gate by two good sized clumps of bamboo and a railway hut which when entered steps you into a modern office of taste, style and convenience. The limestone drive leads to a large deck on the lower level which is sheltered by the home and a sleep out.

Again, the sleep out is a tribute to the owners sense of style with its own funky log burner, luxurious carpet and clever design features.

The two bedrooms downstairs also have their own sitting room and log fire plus a newly renovated tiled bathroom. Up the spiral stairs is the living area, kitchen and master bedroom with ensuite and dressing room/office.

A family and/or group will love the flat lawn and large deck out back with white festoon lights forming an evening canopy of gentle light and the supersized outdoor black board edging the green lawn and a bush backdrop.

There are too many features to rave about, the owners have had their fun designing this home away from home but a change of plans means you too can enjoy the wonderful home they have created.

  • We really loved the property and the location was perfect for us...

    We really loved the property and the location was perfect for us as it was nice and private. The kitchen was fully kitted out which we loved and being able to have a soak in the big bath was a huge bonus for us as the weather was cold and rainy during out stay!

  • We loved this house and would definitely stay again

    We loved this house and would definitely stay again. Great space for our family (both in and out in the garden), child safe and warm, including a fire. Well equipped kitchen and lovely bathroom. Situated close to Havelock, Picton and Blenheim, so good to make day trips around the region, not to mention walks in the sounds and the beach close by. Just awesome!
