You can enjoy beautiful sea views all year round in these six homes for sale from across the country
There’s nothing that can beat a sensational view to give peace of mind and a dose of serenity. It doesn’t matter what time of the year it is, nature always puts on a compelling display and whether it’s sunny skies, or a sweep of rain, just looking at a beautiful vista can help you de-stress. Here’s our pick of properties that offer the chance to appreciate wonderful sea views every day of the year.
1. Water wonderland
Wow! With views like this you’ll never want to leave this Whangarei home. The lion’s share of the sensational panoramic outlook can be enjoyed from the living room, kitchen and master bedroom and many an hour can be spent watching the activity on the water from the ample decking.
This waterfront property offers a unique lifestyle and is a dream come true for anyone who loves water sports. With lots of space both inside and out it’s a perfect retreat or permanent home. Relax on the deck with a glass of wine and think how lucky you are.
2. Miami nice
Relax on the couch and revel in the views of the harbour and Hauraki Gulf from this immaculate second-floor Auckland apartment in a grand-stand position on Tamaki Drive.
Or you can kick back on the deck and watch as the world passes by before you cross the road for a refreshing dip.
This spacious apartment takes up the whole floor and boasts a generous entertaining area, three double bedrooms, two luxe bathrooms and entertainer’s kitchen. This is Miami-style chilled by the relaxed vibe of Kohi and as rare as hen’s teeth.
3. Heaven sent
You’ll think you’ve died and gone to heaven when you wake up and look out your bedroom window at the sensational views from this charming Pukehina cottage.
This is beachfront at its best — enjoy a morning coffee on the deck and it’s a hop, skip and jump to the sea. The all-white interior allows the 180 degree view to take centre stage and underlines the tranquillity of this special spot.
There’s nothing to be done to this little 20s darling except move in and embrace the sun, surf and sand lifestyle.
4. Sixties classic
This peaceful sun-drenched Nelson property is a sixties classic with amazing views over the lush garden to the sea beyond.
There’s plenty of value that can be added here with a bit of an update of the kitchen and bathroom, but it’s the special site that’s irreplacable.
Two-storeys offer plenty of potential to reconfigure to your needs, and you can enjoy the gorgeous views from the deck while you’re planning how you’ll make this home your own. Better still, you can walk to town along the pretty Arrow Street walkway.
5. Family favourite
There’s nothing you need to do to this two-year old Nelson home except move in and enjoy a glass of wine on the deck while you drink in the fabulous views over the harbour.
This high-spec home is perfect for families with two living areas, spacious kitchen with a hard-working butler’s pantry and three double bedrooms.
The central kitchen and living area make the most of the vista and opens to the generous deck. Enjoy the relaxing ambience and feel like you’re on holiday all year round while being only a seven-minute drive to the city centre.
6. Close to nature
This lovely Clutha home has no airs and graces but it does put on a show with its bird’s eye view over the sweep of the bay from the living area and deck. It’s also got heaps of space with four double bedrooms (one with fireplace) and two living areas.
Rimu details and brickwork accents give the main living area plenty of character. You’ll be so cosy while you enjoy the vista on a winter’s day — as well as a fireplace, wood burner and heat pumps, the home is well insulated.
A lovely space to relax and enjoy all that being close to nature has to offer.
