Sitting above Scorching Bay is 5,514 m2 of tracked and completely private native bush with panoramic views of the harbour, from Somes Island to Pencarrow. Here you feel as though you're on holiday in the Marlborough Sounds - yet Wellington's CBD is 15 minutes away.

This land is being passed on by the fourth generation of the family who have owned and cherished this retreat for over 120 years.

The property is bordered by reserve and includes a cute, 1950's two bedroom batch that was the home of cartoonist Burton Silver and where he devised the popular Listener comic strip "Bogor" - about a lone woodsman with a fertile imagination. The bach has mains water and electricity, and has had gas in the past.

Endless potential to build multiple homes - there is a scheme drawing for 8 - or whatever you want to, ranging from one amazing home to an eco-village - all subject to consent. Or just keep this hideaway just as it as it is.

This site, which has never been on the market before, is sheltered from prevailing winds and close to good schooling, shops, cinema, beach, airport and public transport.

Ratable value $860,000.

This is a magic place, and an opportunity unlikely to be repeated. Do not delay
