Discover the perfect blend of tranquillity and activity at Northridge Estate, Coromandel’s latest elevated housing subdivision.

Offering a unique combination of house and land packages and sections, Northridge Estate presents an unparalleled opportunity for those seeking a slice of paradise in the heart of Coromandel’s coveted landscape.

Nestled within a serene bush-clad setting with breathtaking views overlooking Tairua harbour, Northridge Estate provides residents with easy access to a plethora of recreational activities both on and off the water. Immerse yourself in coastal living at its finest, with near by walkways and estuary beachfronts inviting exploration and relaxation.

Developed in multiple stages by experienced developer and Pauanui resident, Gordon Finlay of Inspired Property, Northridge Estate epitomises the essence of luxury living amidst nature’s beauty. “It’s getting harder to find secluded, bush-clad sections along the
East Coast like these,” says Gordon, “and I’ve purposely priced them right to sell, which they are.”

Stage one of Northridge Estate is already underway, with a variety of packages sold and four sections still available. Titles are available for stage two, offering both section and house and land options.

With fixed-price design and build contracts provided by Inspired Property’s experienced building contractors, residents can rest as sured that their dream home will be realised without unexpected costs.

“The agreed price is what you pay – there’s no additional costs,” assures Gordon. Collaborating with local architectural designer Danielle Cooper, Inspired Property ensures that each house is a unique one off, not replicated within or outside of the estate.

“We design every house as a unique one off, specific to our clients’ needs. Danielle is a genius designer and really loves what she does.” Gordon is a highly experienced and prolific developer and is the creative force behind many local projects including homes on the Waterways Parade, Motu Grande and The Quays Villas.

With an open and personable approach, Gordon knows what makes a value-added offer and is expert in maximising the best aspects of the natural environment.

Gordon’s vision extends beyond mere housing development; he envisions Northridge Estate as a thriving community catering to the needs of its diverse residents. With plans for future development including a private hospital, assisted living facilities, retail outlets, storage sheds, waterfront restaurants, and even a supermarket, Northridge Estate aims to provide a comprehensive living experience for residents of all ages.

Gordon recognises the importance of supporting active lifestyles within the estate, proposing amenities and services tailored to meet the needs of residents of all ages. “Sixty really is the new 40 for many New Zealanders,” says Gordon who is 66 years young and
still involved in circuit motorcycle racing. “I race against my son and my grandson,” he says, highlighting the desire for an active and vibrant community within Northridge Estate.

“The key thing is to have a variety of housing options for a mix of residents including the workers who work within the amenities,” says Gordon who plans apartment living options above retail complexes.

“In effect, the Coromandel is a tourist region like Queenstown, but they have a real shortage of workers’ accommodation there,” explains Gordon. “The problems they experience, are what we are trying to avoid.”

With its idyllic location, inspired designer homes, and emerging service community, Northridge Estate at Pauanui is poised to become the epitome of coastal living in the Coromandel. Whether you’re seeking a permanent residence or a holiday retreat, Northridge Estate offers something for everyone, promising a lifestyle of luxury, convenience, and natural beauty. Experience the essence of coastal living at Northridge Estate Pauanui – where every day feels like paradise.
