Real Estate Script – 39 Grove Ave, Mt Maunganui


It’s a challenge to describe in so few words the overwhelming appeal of this north facing, immaculate beach home. This full site in a premium downtown location falls somewhere between a family beach paradise and a work of art. While the rest of the world seems ready made, this magnificent rebuild utilises the home’s original solid timber bones. Bones which create unparalleled atmosphere and form, maximising space, light, and aspect that would be otherwise unobtainable with a new build. Take the narrative tour through this sublime four bedroom beach retreat.


Approaching, you’ll first notice the proud placement of the building, elevated to access unrestricted ocean views, classically contoured with original extra wide weatherboards and eaves, and remarkable detailing along the gables and soffits. The spacious entranceway with its clean white lines welcomes you in, giving you the first hint of the glory you are about to behold. Walk inside you’ll be bathed in warmth and light, a powder room to your left and ahead of you, a generous media room/office with bi-fold doors opening out onto the landscaped garden. Turn right, and be prepared to see your dream family beach life unfold. A strikingly stylish and inviting open plan kitchen, dining and living room is an entertainer’s dream. Bi-fold doors offer unobstructed indoor-outdoor flow to a fully designed landscaped back yard with a stunning Mark Cashmore Design pool complete with eye catching diving globe. Mature nikaus grace the lush lawn attracting tui with their phenomenally beautiful song, and a dense green garden forms a gorgeous contrasting backdrop to the turquoise waters of the 2.4m deep pool, decking and cedar spa.


Head to the second floor via the original timber stairs, and turn left to find yourself in the sprawling sanctuary of your master bedroom with private living area and deck; the recipient of full morning sun and sea views. Your walk-in custom built wardrobe is vast and your large ensuite with quality fittings is sleek and fully tiled, as is the second identical bathroom down the hallway.


Another powder room off the hall gives you luxurious convenience, and services the additional three substantial double bedrooms on that level. View the private garden and its view of the Mount from either of end two upstairs double bedrooms with doors opening out onto a shared deck and external stairway access. Even better, view from the comfort of your fully sheltered outdoor kitchen and courtyard below. This is perfect for alfresco dining all year round with a cafe style clear shelter and waterproof canvas covered pergola.


Let’s not forget your oversized fully insulated, carpeted garage (also with sea views), and an abundance of additional features; Santa Fe shutters throughout, bespoke cabinetry, a Falcon double oven, low-e glass, and thermostatically controlled ducted air conditioning/heating.

Should you ever wish to leave home, saunter 145m to the pristine white sand beach, or take an easy 300m stroll to the world class cafes and bars of downtown Mt Maunganui. It has to be seen to be believed –  call Sandra or Matt now to view.
