Beach Retreat Paekakariki
Paekakariki 22 Aperahama Street
About This PropertyScandinavian vibes. The views are spectacular but what truly defines this unique character beach home is the enchanting secret garden with its discreet sauna and studio.
Like the deftly renovated four-bedroom house, the owners have blended a sophisticated European sensibility with the traditions of the Great Kiwi Bach to create an exquisite retreat that can be enjoyed year-round in all weathers.
You can soak up the sun and sea air from the big open deck at the front, with its panoramic views of Kapiti Island, Mana Island and the South Island. Or retire to the shelter and shade of the beautifully timbered sanctuary at the rear that steps out to sublime landscaped seclusion. With its level lawn, exotic palm tree and colourful bird of paradise bush, you'll feel like you're in your private paradise, especially after a relaxing sauna or a dip in the spa pool.
At the bottom of the garden is the insulated ply-lined studio, complete with a picturesque veranda, window seat and loft.
You'll love this home even on the coldest of winter days, thanks to its roaring wood burner in the lounge and a heat transfer system to keep everything cosy when the sun isn't streaming into the open-plan living space - all of which can be opened up to the beach-facing deck with its sunken seating for sheltered entertaining.
Add a solid timber kitchen, single garage with auto door, off-street parking for three cars, sheds for the garden, bikes and surfboards, and you have a home for all seasons. This unique home is selling "as is, where is".**
