Beautiful life boasts harbour views and Kaimai sunsets
Rural lifestyle in arguably one of the best spots near Tauranga Harbour takes on international status in Pahoia Road - the epitome of lifestyle in this prime horticultural ribbon.
Welcome to Waireka - recognised worldwide for its beautiful blooms, yet possibly little known domestically. Except to fellow flower growers of course. This property is one of only two growers of hellebores - winter roses - in the country. There is also a close-knit community of flower growers in the area. Adjoining the several rows of hellebores are many rows of Hydrangeas - row upon row of brilliant blooms lining the slopes in front of the home. The other main crop is pieris - or lily of the valley.
These are just coming into production - an aspect which enhances the allure here. The ability to move into the property and earn immediate income is an enticing benefit which adds cream to this proposition. With only a small part of the year in downturn, the blooms of Waireka offer a roll-on seasonal production.
It is a well-oiled machine. Strolling amid the sheltered rows of plants, the presentation and maintenance of the property is something to admire. Walk down to the shedding and be equally impressed. Two chillers, packing and implement sheds house all the equipment to run this operation. Waireka is being sold as a going concern - lock, stock and barrel - the nursery, business, contacts and global reputation - together with all the equipment and implements. Even workers if you choose.
Run successfully as a husband and wife operation plus staff who may stay. It's an aspect worth considering when looking at what's on offer. And then there's the home - and lifestyle that accompanies it. A character house melts into this stunning setting - views to Tauranga Harbour and those breathtaking Kaimai sunsets adding to life here.
The home embraces warm tradition with contemporary charm - modern flair incorporating lime-washed Douglas Fir lining vaulted ceilings in key areas throughout the home. There is an inviting brick fireside lounge; a separate family lounge with pellet fire and built-in dressers, voluptuous draping and areas with cushioned window seats. Timber is another dominant feature throughout - in the kitchen, bathrooms and closets. There's a farm-style laundry with back-door entrance and shower to clean up after work, a loft to work in, or make into another bedroom if you want - and a lot more to explore - including a tennis court, swimming pool and gorgeous grounds.
Even if the flower business doesn't appeal - consider the home, the setting and what you could turn it into - a sanctuary of secret splendour. It's a sumptuous property with options - wide options. Just don't forget the door to the world.
