What is believed to be the highest amount ever paid for a residential property in Picton has just been confirmed by Harcourts Picton owner, Brenda Davey. The renowned luxury property at 41 Marina Drive, Waikawa Bay sold for close to its listed price of $1.6 million.
Ms Davey described it as “a landmark property with the marina at the doorstep” and added that property of this calibre with its many special features was “extremely rare” in Picton. This was the first time it had been on the market since it was built 17 years ago.

Crafted from cedar and Alexandra schist the large homestead included three bedrooms and three bathrooms as part of its 360 sqm floor area. It also had four car garaging and numerous entertainment decks to take advantage of the stunning harbour views stretching well over 30 kilometres down Marlborough Sounds from its elevated 9780 sqm site.
