Set in the heart of New Zealand’s famed Bay of Islands 'Wharenui' is the pinnacle of modern beachfront living. Designed by Simon Carnachan the vision was for a resort-style environment that could house a multi-generational family for holidays and family events.
The buildings are centred around a heated swimming pool and large bespoke spa pool giving a true resort feel from each of the private residential areas. The two-bedroom house and den closest to the water is considered the master suite facing north out to the glorious Bay of Islands. Two other stand-alone dwellings have two luxury bedrooms each and open north to the pool and the manicured lawns. A bunkhouse has additional capability with two double en-suited bedrooms and a bunkroom with eight bunks which share two en-suites.
Entertainment options are abundant with a fully functional bar and dining room featuring a teppanyaki hotplate and bench seating for 10 people, 12-seat dining and a wood burning fire. A separate games room adds to the multi-generational capabilities with table tennis, pool, darts and a large television perfect for children and adults alike.
Outside the fun continues with an international size floodlit tennis court and a comprehensive golf facility with a two tier green made from synthetic grass, three sand traps and multiple tee off areas ranging from 90 to 160 metres.
The land itself is situated within the exclusive ‘Omarino’ development which is limited to 18 exceptional sites sharing 350 acres with over five kilometres of waterfront. Most are either beachfront or private peninsulas, securely gated with a full-time operations manager taking care of the properties. Shared facilities include an owners clubroom designed by Pete Bossley and the original shearers' quarters which have been renovated into an exceptional quality lodge. Both buildings are on the glorious waters of Waipiro Bay with a private marina, boat launching ramp and a private boatshed for each owner capable of housing a 25 foot trailer boat. Another Omarino owner has successfully built a consented private helicopter facility on the property and there is currently an application being processed to build a private jetty.
