Description

Ground floor, spacious, luxurious apartment in a Coromandel artist's locally celebrated landmark property – your own private landscaped courtyard garden, beautiful shared garden, masses of parking for cars and boats. Architectural interior upgrade completed August 2017. Enjoy designer decor with quality furnishings in comfortable Art Hotel style. Generously equipped throughout.

On Colville Road, 13 km north of Coromandel town centre, 2.5hr from Auckland airport. This is an excellent base for exploring the beautiful Coromandel Peninsula. Excellent fishing locally with boat ramp access 200 meters; swimming beach access straight across the road, local bush and river walks; wonderful sea and island views from shared gardens and lookout.

Many diverse famous local tourist attractions – Driving Creek Railway and all Coromandel town attractions 17mins; Colville Village 15 minutes; Hot Water beach 1hr 20, Cathedral Cove 1hr 30. Excellent restaurants too.

You may hear kiwi at night in the adjacent bush reserve, and you can join the generations of families who have photographed their children on the historic "Big Tomato" (visit him on his own Facebook page "The Big Tomato PapaAroha")

This is your perfect basecamp for Coromandel fishing competitions, and for cycle and kayak teams or film crews. Join the Open Studios Coromandel Arts Tour in early October, with glass, ceramic, jewellery, painting, printmaking, photography, sculpture, carving, textile and fibre art, woodworking there really is something for everyone!

Visiting in autumn is a treat. More settled weather than summer, mirror-like sea, magic sunsets, collect blackberries for your breakfast porridge or cereal. No traffic. And your almost private beach becomes your pretty much absolutely private beach.
