Dreaming of an Island Escape?
The quintessential Kiwi summer lifestyle just got a whole lot cooler! Tucked away on a little island only accessible by boat you’ll have almost the entire beachfront to yourselves with panoramic water views, and total peace and quiet. Whether you reside here or keep it as a holiday home, its’ sensational location and outlook certainly make for a special place to be.
In harmony with the stunning beach surrounds is a spacious residence constructed with warm timbers and extensive glass sliders. Open plan living and kitchen embraces the outlook, while the clever use of space in the three bedrooms allows room for extended family or guests with an extra-large third bedroom that sleeps eight people. Generous decking wraps around the entire dwelling connecting it to the boathouse; a smart addition with living and sleeping space along with bathroom and laundry facilities. Perhaps an additional stream of income?
Embracing the natural environment that it inhabits, the property is completely self-sufficient with solar power and hot water, gas for cooking, and a plentiful amount of rainwater storage with three large tanks. The 4.7803 hectares of land stretches from one side of the island to the other, and with only a handful of properties on the island (even less that are permanent residents), you are almost guaranteed complete privacy. The boat crossing takes mere minutes and is made even simpler by garage storage for a boat/kayaks both at the property and at the Motueka wharf. The property is built above sea level and protected from wave action and erosion by the sandspit in front, as well as extensive sandbags.
Jackett Island is close to town and all amenities, so while you are indeed very privately situated, you are by no means isolated. The Tasman region is simply stunning and this prime location is right in the heart of it in between the Abel Tasman Nation Park and Nelson Airport. With the hot summer sun now upon us, Pohutukawa flowers in the trees, and a sea view that stretches for miles, there is simply no better place to be, and no better time than now.
