Soak up a quintessential Kiwi summer with rare lakeside home on the serene Te Akau Peninsula

Nestled at the end of Te Akau Road and at the tip of the peninsula, this captivating lakeside property is perfect for those seeking the ultimate escape.

The exceptional home, boasting a half-share in a jetty and a quarter-share in a boat ramp, offers an outstanding lifestyle with unrivaled lake and farmland views.

“This is an extremely rare opportunity to own your very own slice of paradise. It’s a really tightly held piece of real estate, with the last sale on that peninsula all the way back in 2014” says Bayleys salesperson Beth Millard.

Spread over 214sqm, the split-level four-bedroom property, is one of only six in this exclusive enclave.

With wood finishes, and an abundance of light, 187C Te Akau Road embraces its stunning surroundings with passion and grace, seamlessly blending the picturesque views with its interior to create a bright, airy, and uplifting space.

“I’ve sat outside and shared a gin with the owner. It's a great place to soak up the afternoon sun and solve the problems of the world, all while enjoying birdsong and uninterrupted views of Lake Rotoiti.” The property features a thoughtfully designed layout, with bathrooms on both levels and bedrooms scattered upstairs and down, including a mezzanine master suite with its own private balcony. The deck at ground level provides a perfect space for relaxed outdoor living, while the double garage offers convenience and ample storage.

“Occupying its own floor, the master suite is separate from the kids and guest rooms to guarantee peace and quiet.”

“The overall design is funky, and a bit different. It’s exactly what a bach should be.”

The breathtaking views surrounding the property also provide the perfect backdrop to the centrally located open-plan kitchen, which offers a delightful space for both cooking and entertaining.

Residents of this lakeside haven are also able to enjoy the privilege of a half-share in a jetty and a quarter-share in a boat ramp, ensuring seamless lake access for idyllic days spent on the water or lazy afternoons at home.

“On any given day Lake Rotoiti’s boat ramps are extremely busy. This means you don’t have to worry about queuing up, you just walk across to the water and put your boat in.” 187C Te Akau Road delivers the simple joys of life in a back-to-nature setting, and while it feels worlds away from the crowds and traffic, it’s still an easy drive to all of the amenities both Rotorua and Tauranga have to offer.

“It’s just 20 minutes into Rotorua, and about 45 minutes to the Mount. It’s also only a 10 minute drive to the iconic Okere Store.”

For those looking to escape the ordinary and embrace a lifestyle of tranquility and natural beauty, this property on Te Akau Peninsula could be the perfect spot to begin your next chapter.
