Mataia Homestead is an historical homestead located on a 1400ha unique combination of a working sheep and beef farm and private nature reserve on the beautiful Kaipara Harbour. The perfect spot for families or groups looking for a quiet retreat, the homestead is situated on approximately 5 acres of developing gardens, including a large productive vegetable and herb garden and an establishing heritage fruit orchard. There are a number of short and long walks through the 400 hectare private conservation reserve which is made up largely of coastal native forest margin and salt marsh wetland. This area is a great place for bird-watchers and boasts rare populations of Fernbird, Banded Rail and North Island Brown Kiwi and is host to a large number of other native bird species.

The two-storey homestead features 6 bedrooms, two bathrooms, a library/television room, music room, dining room and large open plan kitchen and lounge area making it the perfect space for groups.

The homestead is located equidistance from three townships - Warkworth, Wellsford and Helensville (all within a 30 minute drive).

    Beautiful property, house equipped with everything we needed. Loved the extensive fruit, herb, and vegetable gardens, and the walks available. It was clean, quiet, comfortable and had everything we needed. Highly recommended.
