Want to be one of the luckiest people on the planet, and build your very own dream home overlooking the spectacular coastline of New Zealand? Or, perhaps better still, build 18 of them? Well, here’s your chance…

Situated on the gorgeous east coast of New Zealand’s North Island in the holiday community of Mahia Beach – and just over an hour’s drive from the business district of the town of Gisborne – sits the incredible coastal development opportunity of Panorama Heights. Comprising 39.5 hectares of land, this exquisite parcel of land for sale in Mahia is a blank canvas just waiting for the right buyer. With the potential to build up to 18 luxury homes on the site, there’s no end of options for those wanting to exercise their design skills… and their entrepreneurial tendencies.

And given the property’s elevation, spectacular views over Mahia Beach north toward Gisborne or south to Hawke's Bayare pretty much guaranteed from most lots. Add to this the fact that the property features 1.5 hectares of lush native vegetation, along with 13 hectares of Manuka / Kanuka and secondary bush regeneration, there's plenty of scope to build the perfect – and peaceful – luxury vacation home or full-time residence here.

Panorama Heights Features Spectacular Views Over Mahia

In addition to its incredible views and potential for peace and privacy, Panorama Heights offers plenty of scope for those seeking a fresh palette on which to create their dream luxury lifestyle.

For example, the option exists to perhaps subdivide and sell some of the lower lots, hanging onto the upper area with the best views for yourself.

“Initial investigations have been carried out into the subdivision potential of the land, and cost estimates have been ascertained for consent application, surveying, earthworks, roading and power,” says Katie Bowen, the listing agent withBayleys Gisborne. “And with few lifestyle lots available in Mahia, this really is a great opportunity.”

All told, Panorama Heights consists of 18 lots


Adds Bowen: “The Mahia Peninsula enjoys wonderfully long, hot summers, as well as mild winters. Add to this the spectacular beaches around the peninsula, and you’re looking at an incredible lifestyle opportunity, not to mention the investment potential.”

Luxury Lifestyles in Mahia Beach

Other aspects of the luxury lifestyle on offer through the purchase of Panorama Heights includes easy access to the numerous top attractions in Gisborne and the Mahia area, not to mention great dining and entertainment options, too. The list of fun things to do include swimming at the nearby beaches, surfing and boogie-boarding, as well as fishing and boating. Rocket Lab’s regular launching of satellites from the tip of the Mahia Peninsula adds an exciting new dimension to what visitors to Mahia can now experience.

“Our vendor is very motivated to sell this land as they have other projects they wish to focus on,” says Bowen. “Given the fact it’s within easy reach of the region’s famed surf beaches, wineries, and gorgeous coastline, there’s going to be a great deal of interest when this spectacular opportunity goes to auction in February 2020.”
