About this listing
Located in the eastern bays of Banks Peninsula in the private and secluded paradise of Decanter Bay. On a slightly elevated site with stunning views over the bay and out over the Decanters to Pegasus Bay. The house, 1920's Californian style bungalow set on 3.618ha (approx. 9 acres) of sunny land presents a unique, once in a lifetime opportunity to purchase a property in a private access bay. Built for the vendors grandfather in 1920 it has remained in the family ever since with the current member of the family in occupation the last 65 years.
The house has had recent extensive refurbishment and offers 4 large double bedrooms, main with ensuite & WIR, bathroom, office, kitchen/ living room and a formal drawing room with wood panelling and an open fire. Just off the house is a charming sleepout and triple bay garage with substantial workshop. The lawn and low maintenance garden runs down to a lovely sandy beach where one can safely swim and or for ready access to fishing, diving, kayaking. There is no public road to the beach and the bay only has four dwellings with virtually no likelihood of any more. Opportunities like this are rare on the Peninsula .
