Forty years in the same home is a remarkable reference for any four walls.
But, when those walls happen to be a two-storey, turn of the century villa on a wonderful level lawn of 906 m2, and, just steps to the golden sands of Cheltenham beach...then it's easy to see why you would stay.

Now into their 41st year, our vendors have their eyes firmly fixed on the next chapter of their lives leaving this wonderful family home seriously for sale to a new owner with a new vision.

While lovingly maintained through the years, 'Whakarua' remains largely original. Other than extending the kitchen in the 80's and adding a double garage with internal access - there have been no significant alterations or meddlings. High studs, ornate ceilings, solid Kauri turned balustrades, stunning leadlight windows, and the utter delight of upper-level verandahs that welcome the warm sea breezes of Cheltenham on a summer's night.
Sited on a generous level section of an approximate 906m² and boarded by mature trees, the garden provides numerous options. Enjoy as-is, the perfect cricket pitch, accommodate a garden wedding, or add a resort-style pool and entertaining area.
Once inside, downstairs comprises an elegant entrance and hallway, a generous formal sitting room, a large dining room that steps through to a garden room and out to a vine-covered deck. This area can also be accessed from the kitchen. A snug or reading room with a fireplace, a separate bathroom, and a utility room completes the lower-level layout.
On the upper storey is a second bathroom, four large double bedrooms - master with water views, ensuite, walk-in wardrobe, and verandah access. On a summer evening pull back the french doors to experience the absolute joy of the northeasterly breeze that lends this home its name - Whakarua.
Watched over and protected by Maungauika, Whakarua is a home boasting a privileged Cheltenham location and lifestyle.
Please call us for a private viewing.
