Prominent Dunedin Architect Roy Fraser fell in love with Manapouri and Fiordland in the early 1920's and the beach which now bears his name was home to the family summer camping holidays for 30 years when he then designed and built the house which has remained in the family ever since.
Set among mature native and exotic trees and shrubs, this 1960s-built home harks back to a time of fun-filled and adventurous holidays. It is now time to let this family home, listed for the first time, go to a new family to continue the tradition of several generations.
The dwelling was updated and modernised in the early 1990s but still retains the character and the original features that set it apart and add to its charm.
Split over two levels, the upstairs features a light-filled living area with an open fire place, a separate dining nook/ breakfast room, a functional kitchen and two double bedrooms. Native timber flooring exudes warmth and enhances the ambience of this space.
Located downstairs are two further bedrooms, one of which opens to the garden, a bathroom, separate toilet and laundry. There is also plenty of space for storage and potential for a rumpus room or more sleeping areas. A secure basement area provides for outdoor storage needs.
This unique package is set on a 2274 sqm section (in two titles) in the heart of Manapouri, just a casual stroll to Frasers Beach and the local business area. There is an abundance of space for visitors to pitch tents or park vehicles. With potential to develop further or just enjoy it as it is, this property offers a unique chance to purchase a beautiful part of the country that has the wilderness of Fiordland on its doorstep.
