Property for sale – 342 Tangiora Avenue, Whangapoua, Coromandel Peninsula, New Zealand. Marketed by Lea Jurkovich from Bayleys Real Estate, Whitianga, New Zealand

It is the first time to market for this one-of-a-kind property that overlooks the idyllic shores of Whangapoua Beach.

Designed by award-winning architect Ken Crosson, the “Hut on Sleds” has received national and international recognition for its creative and sustainable approach to seaside living. Among its many accolades, it won the coveted “best small house” category at the 2014 Architizer A+ Awards, beating entries from over 100 countries.

Situated on an exceptional 966sqm absolute waterfront site, this timber cabin has been designed to open and close against the elements, with a five-metre Macrocarpa timber shutter winching up two levels to reveal double-height steel-framed doors that open to a stunning view of white sands and blue seas.

Accommodating a family of five, this two-level property offers open living and kitchen spaces with a triple bunk room and ladder access to the mezzanine master bedroom. A trap door leads to a third-level observation platform, with incredible views to Great Barrier island and beyond. The industrial fixtures and fittings and timber-lined interior spaces create a modern and welcoming retreat after a day at the beach.

This waterfront property is a rare opportunity to secure a piece of real-estate in a very tightly held market. Further opportunity awaits the lucky new owner of this highly renowned property with the choice to enjoy it as it is or expand upon what is already there.
