3 Bedroom Seaside Cottage in Devonport AUCKLAND NZ

  • 3 bedrooms
  • 2 bathrooms


Rata Cottage is truly a home away from home and can be described as ‘absolutely charming’. Nestled at the end of a long private driveway, the home and its lovely garden are a delightful surprise. The quiet and peacefulness of the surroundings is immediately evident, and lush native gardens encircle the property. Everything about this home and property is pleasing to the eye
That this lovely home is warm and welcoming goes without saying. A cosy outdoor patio with its glass roof and tensioned awnings enables you to either have the full el fresco feel with all the blinds rolled up, or block out the breeze or inclement weather by rolling them down. Comfortable outdoor furniture makes this a great spot to take an afternoon nap in the sun or read a book, and the 6-burner BBQ makes this a perfect area for entertaining in all weather
The spacious open-plan kitchen, dining and living area has a simple elegance and is charmingly appointed with its comfy furniture and eclectic native artwork. And you’ll certainly enjoy preparing meals in the modern well designed kitchen with all the modern easy to use appliances any chef would be happy to cook with. A fireplace adjacent to the kitchen/living room provides cosy winter warmth and there’s always plenty of firewood on hand
The master bedroom has French doors which open out to the gardens and the surrounding native trees providing a delightful backdrop to the distinctly appealing decor. The second bedroom has one entire wall of windows which makes this a very light and bright room. Each of the three bedrooms is furnished with style and supreme comfort in mind. The ensuite bathroom to the main bedroom is a special feature with its French doors and bi-fold windows which brings the garden into the bathroom and will transport you to an exotic spa as you soak in the luxurious bath
The master bedroom has a queen bed and the guest room has a Californian King which can convert to two king single beds. The third bedroom is a single room. High quality bedding and linen has been used in all the rooms to maximise your comfort
A separate well appointed bathroom, which combines the laundry, services the rest of the home
The owners of this enchanting property have ensured maximum enjoyment of the gardens and outdoors, and aside from the outdoor living room/patio, French doors also lead out to another terrace area from the living room allowing you to bask in the late afternoon sun while you sip your coffee or glass of wine
The property has plenty of space, and off street parking for your cars
And Rata Cottage would be a fabulous choice if you are rugby fans coming to New Zealand in September or October 2011. For those games that you can’t make in person, there’s a 42" plasma TV to watch them on in the superb comfort of your home away from home
