​​​Parkview2 small-min.jpgA 7.2 hectare, freehold development site in Gulf Harbour is for sale, presenting a superb opportunity for an astute investor. 

The property is being marketed by JLL agent Tommy Zhang who says, “Resource consent has been granted for 67 residential lots and two superlots, which will provide for an additional 58 house hold units. Together that’s 125 residences in total with an average lot size of 570sqm, which is substantial considering many standard Auckland house lots are approximately 400sqm. The property will cater for a mix of standalone and terrace housing, or this can be reconfigured through council, if the new owner wanted to only allow for standalone properties.”

The site is a short walk from the Gulf Harbour Country Club, beaches and the Gulf Harbour Marina, making the location ideal for those who enjoy boating or playing golf. Decile 10 schools, restaurants, bars and the Hobbs Wharf Café on the waterfront is also nearby. Within a ten-minute drive is Shakespear Regional Park, Whangaparoa business hub and shopping centre and the property is also a 20-minute ferry ride to the well-known wildlife sanctuary of Tiritiri Matangi. 

“There are many high-end houses in the area and with good reason, the sea views from some of the vantage points are spectacular and will no doubt be a big draw card for investors for this site.” says Zhang. 

The median sale price for residential properties in Gulf Harbour for June 2017 was $772,500 (according to REINZ data), which when compared to areas such as Takapuna on Auckland’s North Shore where the median sale price was $1.3m, makes Gulf Harbour a desirable, less expensive alternative, without forgoing access to beaches and sea views. 

“The ferry takes 50 minutes to reach Auckland CBD, which runs nine times daily from Monday to Friday. This makes the prospect of living the dream in Gulf Harbour appealing to many, especially those who commute to Auckland CBD to work and spend an equal amount of time or longer in a car on a daily basis,” says Zhang.


Alongside the obvious of the site being suitable for housing lots, Zhang also alludes to the prospect of the site being utilised for other purposes. “We believe the location could be suitable for a retirement village or aged care facilities. The opportunity is available and the vendor will be reviewing all options.”

The property will be sold through an Expressions of Interest campaign closing 4pm, Thursday 31 August, 2017.​
