WINA Estate in Savusavu may just be that ideal place to turn your dreams into reality or appreciate the magical place with family and friends.
Savusavu’s well known real estate agent, Pettine Simpson believes the natural surrounding of the hidden paradise sets a unique and ideal environment for settling. Ms Simpson explains more about the property at Wina.
Wina is a prized-jewel of properties along the Hibiscus Highway, less than 10 minutes scenic drive on Bitumen road from peaceful Savusavu Town which is regarded as the most welcoming town in the country. On arrival at your secluded island paradise estate, you will be uniquely nestled in peace, serenity and nature, without a neighbour in sight except for the waves that thrushes against the shores from the blue ocean. The palm trees line the sandy beach and the majestic green hills of Vanua Levu, Fiji’s second-largest island sits as your backdrop. Bordering Wina, are two well-maintained coconut plantations, each hundreds of acres in size. The Wina driveway is 290 metres long that passes through beautiful manicured tropical gardens with an abundance of tropical fruit and flowers all at your fingertips.
The homestead is exclusive and private. It is not visible from the main road and barely visible through lush trees and ferns from a round-about at the end of the driveway. A three car garage and boat shed is located at the end of the round-about. Here you will find the start of your journey to the main house, an enchanted walk-way winding through ferns as you approach the front porch and double doors.
The main house
The main house and pod bedrooms are of solid engineered wood construction, but designed with a pleasing rustic beach shack appeal.
The finish is dominated by local mahogany, on heavy exposed rafters, ceiling planks, and numerous bi-fold doors.
The Wina home has been designed to blend in with nature, capturing the essence of the natural surroundings. If you enjoy sea breezes, stunning sea views, the peaceful and calming sounds of nature, the aroma of flora, bird and watching fish leaping in the lagoon then you will understand why the Wina house is more than just a beach haven.
As you approach the main entrance from the walk-way, you will notice two Fijian warrior figures, carved into the porch uprights; standing guard, over you and your household day and night. Once the front doors open upâ€¦ a whole new vista waits. Light beams glisten brilliantly through the house, reflecting off the sea, an ambiance that is unforgettable. Walking through the front doors, a large open planned kitchen will be on your right, with tinted glass louvres and carved window frames on two walls and bi-fold windows that open up over the dining deck area.
As you walk through the front doors the lounge will be directly ahead. Open planned with three sets of bi-fold doors that open over the external decks. The bi- fold doors provide a unique living experience for one to experience natural surrounding of the resonance of sea swells, the rustle of palm fronds from the sea breeze and the singing of birds.
The Wina House is built on solid footing with about 72 uprights dovetailed one metre down into the bedrock.
The Wina property has an abundance of possibilities available.
There is ample room for several additional dwellings and further subdivision.
Wina also has potential for a dive operation or bed and breakfast; rental income would be significant for this holiday tourist paradise.
