It is for good reason that Mapou Road is one of Taupo's most tightly held streets. Nestled on the north side of Rainbow Point the street is sheltered from Taupo's prevailing south-west wind and enjoys stunning day and night views across the north-eastern corner of Tapuaeharuru Bay to Taupo's CBD. The road runs down to the lake edge providing lucky residents with a short stroll to the popular Lion's Walk, which extends for 10 kilometres along the lake edge from Taupo to 5 Mile Bay. Take the short walk to the unique Boatshed Café or stride out to sample the fine dining at the iconic Millennium Manuels Hotel just a little further along the waterfront.

Number 2 Mapou sits beautifully on its elevated 812 sqm site looking across the Two Mile Bay reserve to Lake Taupo. The single level 230 sqm home is currently divided into two dwelling units, which could be easily converted back into one dwelling. The home has a total of 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and 3 car garaging.

A great example of 1960's architecture this home has stood the test of time and will do so for many years to come. Alternatively the site provides a fabulous redevelopment opportunity.
