54 McGregor Road, Clevedon

Semi-Rural Sanctuary Awaits

Thinking there is more to life than traffic congestion and road cones? Would you and your family like to thrive in a property that offers a retreat from the hustle of big city life while still providing easy access to its attractions?

Enjoy grandiose views of Manukau, Rangitoto and Auckland City from the comfort of a spa pool whilst soaking up an exquisite setting-minutes from lively Clevedon Village. Straddling the Hunua Ranges, the house boasts 3.5 bedrooms and is situated on 6602-metres of fertile land (1.6 acres) partitioned neatly into three usable stock/horse paddocks, ideal for those wanting to dip their toes into the attractions of ‘the good life.’

The house is a bungalow, solidly built with brick that has been plastered over. It sits prominently at the section’s front within easy access to the driveway.

Inside, the recently renovated kitchen and well-appointed lounge catch the eye, as does the indoor-outdoor flow towards the prominent decking. The master bedroom is positioned to the east providing the warmth of the early morning flare, while the evenings can be spent unwinding in the presence of magnificent sunsets to the west.

A garage and small shed allow for farm vehicles, or to keep that ongoing project away from the elements. A larger space adjacent is currently being utilised as a classic man cave. If that’s not your thing, the area could provide temporary accommodation for extended family, a lounge for teenagers, or a quiet space for reflection or artistic endeavours.

Zoned for the well-performing Clevedon School, the village has all the modern amenities one needs to complement the area’s agricultural backbone. A medical centre, farm and bait supplies, pharmacy, hairdresser and barber, two garages for repairs and fuel, two dairies, liquor shop, community centre, restaurants and bars including the recent addition of Hallertau Brewing. The gastronomic and aesthetic delights of the Pohutakawa Coast and Hunua are within touching distance. For the fishermen out there, a short 20-minute drive to Kawakawa Bay to launch out into the maritime playgrounds of Maraetai, Waiheke and the Firth of Thames will make any ‘old salt’s weekend.
For those who enjoy the vino culture, boutique wineries are a few minutes away. In summer, local’s love picking their strawberries at one of many farms and cool off with a scoop of real fruit ice cream.

The weekends are buzzing, with the famous Clevedon Farmers Market located at the recreation grounds and the village-based craft market selling local-sourced food from agriculture producers.
Sports lovers are catered for with a Bowling club, Cricket, Rugby, Soccer and Tennis clubs, nearby Windross golf course, and the many challenging walks in the area from the trig at the top of Duder to the ascent of the ancient maunga at Camp Sladdin.

Known as the ‘home of polo’ the champagne-set comes to Clevedon for a series of high-end events from December to February.

So what are waiting for! A lovingly maintained family home, surrounded by one of New Zealand’s most beautiful landscapes in an area only 40 minutes from Auckland’s CBD -could be yours!

Don’t delay, properties like this don’t hang around long in today’s market, so call today to secure your paradise in the Shangri-La of the South-East.

Pick your house site! No covenants mean you can build new or move your dream home on.
For sale is a neat grazing parcel with lifestyle potential less than 2 kilometres from the well serviced Hunua township.
In a former life, the 7.9485 ha (approx. 20 acres) site was part of a larger dairy farm. Today, its 11 paddocks connected by a central race, offer endless stock management possibilities for an established cocky, or as a ready-made acreage for rural hobbyists with an eye towards settling into the good life.
Most paddocks have troughs with water rights from a neighbouring bore.
Complementing the land is a recently built 173m2 farm shed, housing four bays with a high stud – perfect for vehicles, hay or projects. The shed has power and contains a water tank & pump. A Code Compliance Certificate will be provided prior to settlement.

Or you could just start your building adventure?

Just 40 minutes from Auckland CBD, there are several great options for a house site, in fact you may have trouble deciding! The whenua is enhanced by a stand of native bush where birds like the Korero and other indigenous wildlife make their home.

Moments away are local attractions to take advantage of in the summer sun, be it mountain biking, trail running, or just relaxing with a vino at John Hill Estate after a leisurely walk around the Hunua Falls. You could also make the short commute to the Pohutakawa Coast and enjoy a day at the beach, or out landing the big one.
