Windermere cottage is a unique and enchanting category 2 listed heritage property with a long and beguiling history. Originally built around 1870 by Charles Harris for his wife Harriet Wells, the property once housed the horses of travellers staying at the Old Oak Inn. The current owners took over its care 32 years ago and have lovingly restored it. It now offers a serene oasis of old-worldly charm that has been recognised as a site of national heritage significance.

Windermere sits on 6728 sqm of elevated coastal land overlooking the broad expanse of the inner Mangonui Harbour. Accessed via a quiet one way lane and tucked away down a long driveway fringed with large trees, landscaped gardens and park like grounds, it enjoys a very private and peaceful atmosphere just a few minutes walk from the shops, cafes and restaurants of the historic Mangonui seaside Village. The land is held in two titles and commercially zoned.

The cottage was extended in the early 1900s and has been restored and thoughtfully renovated over the years but still retains its authentic colonial feel and layout. Integrated lounge and dining rooms are warmed by a character wood burning fireplace and heat pump, and open to a covered balcony that wraps around two sides of the home. The centrally positioned kauri kitchen is sunny, and adjoins a second dining/living room, a well appointed bathroom, and a private north facing deck that is bathed in north facing sun. Downstairs is the master bedroom and large office/study with the two additional double bedrooms on the upper level separated by a landing. All 3 bedrooms and the office/study enjoy lovely garden views.

This is a unique property with loads of character and appeal that you won't want to leave upon entering. Call Michael Healy for further information or to arrange an appointment.
