Karanui captures the true essence of country life with the city doorstep just a five-minute drive away.
Karanui has been thoughtfully designed to ensure residents enjoys the unique and peaceful landscape, with farmland and native bush vistas, and a chorus of native birds like kereru (wood pigeons) and tui.
Karanui’s historical stone walls and groves of native trees have not only been retained, but given pride of place in the landscape, as well as large tracts of land being maintained as small farmlets to enhance the rural feel.
Behind Karanui is the impressive Pukenui Forest, a large block of elevated and bush-clad terrain that serves as a defining backdrop for the development. Karanui is ideally placed to attract a wide variety of bird species from the neighbouring forest and wetland areas, including exotic bird species like greenfinch and skylark, and native bird species like tui, pukeko, kereru, silvereye and grey warbler. Intensive work is underway to also reintroduce kiwi and possibly kokako into the forest.
Situated on Three Mile Bush Road, Karanui is just a few minutes’ drive from Kamo, where a full range of amenities is available, including early childcare centres, primary and secondary schools, grocery stores, service stations, restaurants and bars, as well as a full range of specialty stores including hardware, butchery, plant and book stores.
Just a further 5-10 minutes drive brings you to the heart of Whangarei’s city centre, giving you access to full services and amenities, plus a wide range of eateries and entertainment, all close to your delightful new home.
