Ngunguru, New Zealand - 62 hectares - 2 bedrooms - 1 bathrooms - 2 garages


Although it is only 25 minutes into Whangarei, the next town, and 10 minutes into Ngunguru, the next settlement, this place offers total privacy and peace. It is best suited for self-contained nature lovers, who work from home or are retired.

This property is of high ecological significance, apart from the small residential area the whole land is covered in beautiful, mature native forest.

There are 3 buildings situated on a ridge overlooking the Tutukaka Coast.

  • The house is 13.5m x 6.4m, total floor space of 86 sqm, it is facing north-east.
  • The double garage is 9m x 6m, total floor space of 54 sqm, of which 1/3 is workshop.
  • The guest cottage is 4m x 3.1m, total floor space of 12.4 sqm.

The house was built by Initial Homes in 1987, a solid wood construction with a coloured steel roof. The siding is of low maintenance concrete fibre.

The interior consists of an open living area, kitchen-dining-living, with an open fireplace. There are 2 bedrooms, one bathroom and one office.

Cooking and water heating is with LPG gas. The water supply is rain water, coming from a 20 000 litre tank. It is ample, since the catchment area of the 2 roofs is very big.

The garage has generous parking for 2 vehicles and an additional bathroom with shower, toilet and laundry. The workshop has 3 workbenches at different heights, with a covered outside work area. There is also a little shed for garden tools.

The cosy little guest cottage has a kitchenette and is equipped with a fireplace. There is a queen size bed on the ground level and another one on the mezzanine floor.

All buildings were fully renovated and up-graded in 2005.


Other information

Rare Northland Brown Kiwis live in close proximity to the house. There are also many other native birds in abundance, as well as the rare Tree Weta and other magnificent insects. For these reasons this property is absolutely not suited for pet owners.

The marina in Tutukaka, a 15 minutes’ drive away, is the gateway to Poor Knights Islands which offer world class diving. From here it is just a day trip by sailing boat to the Bay of Islands or the Great Barrier Island. In fact this part of New Zealand is a spectacular playground for people interested in any kind of water sports, from sailing, surfing, diving, fishing, to kayaking. There is a big community of underwater photographers.

A raised, organic vegetable garden supplies fresh produce and is fully enclosed with an established irrigation system. For people who like physical exercise, there is a small outdoor gym. A beautiful walk along the bush, with stunning views over the coast, starts right by the gate.
