Project Overview

Lakeside is a new residential master-planned community nestled on the banks of Lake Waikare in Te Kauwhata. Situated immediately south of the existing village centre, Lakeside is the logical extension of the township. Breathe in, stretch out and make that dream of a Kiwi lifestyle your reality. At Lakeside you’re buying more than just a home, you’ll be building a lifestyle that will be the envy of many. Set in a relaxed rural environment and quintessential Kiwi community, Lakeside’s innovative house designs give you the freedom to choose a home that suits both your needs and your budget. Whether you’re raising a family, enjoying your career or retiring, leave the stress behind and enjoy a slice of the good life. 

Life is better by the water. An exciting new residential community is coming to the banks of Lake Waikare, less than a kilometre from Te Kauwhata’s charming village centre. Lakeside will see for the first time public access provided to the banks of Lake Waikare thanks to the creation of over 5km of walking and cycle trails within 185 acres of dedicated reserve land. Lakeside’s main entrance will be via Scott Road with a secondary entrance via Rata and Rimu Streets, both providing easy access to SH1. 

Access Everywhere

Forty-five minutes north of Lakeside is the supercity of Auckland. With a population of around 1.6 million, Auckland is New Zealand’s major economic and financial centre. With large commercial and industrial areas in Manukau City, plus a wide range of primary industries located in the Pukekohe region, this thriving hub provides a plethora of employment, study and recreation opportunities. 

Lakeside is also within easy reach of bustling Hamilton and beachy Tauranga. With large shopping and service precincts available less than forty minutes’ drive away via the new Waikato expressway, all the necessities in life are just a stone’s throw away. For your outdoor enjoyment the Coromandel and its golden sandy beaches, Waihi and the scenic Karangahake Gorge to the east are all an easy drive from your new Lakeside home.

To the west you’ll enjoy the charms of popular seaside hamlets like Port Waikato, world famous surf town Raglan and the nature reserve of Mt Pirongia. Boating is not just a hobby but a lifestyle for many in the area, and there are dozens of places nearby providing access to the Waikato River for water skiing and fishing. The town is serviced by a newly-built highway interchange leading from the country’s main artery, SH1.

The plan for Lakeside’s centre is a boutique commercial hub, where you can get a latte then walk back to your idyllic new home — or even the beach. A recreational lake is being built adjacent to Lake Waikare. The new lake, along with sports fields, playgrounds, and walking and mountain bike tracks, will offer loads of fun in the outdoors. The Lakeside Village Centre may include: Café / Restaurant, children’s playground, childcare centre, modern medical centre, communal business office, spaces, ample parking, sports field and a basketball court.

All of this will ensure that Lakeside will be both a great place to live now, and for future generations to come. 

  • Lakeside Developments 2017 Limited has purchased a 179 hectare parcel of land located at 94 Scott Road, Te Kauwhata.

  • Located on the southern boundary of the existing community of Te Kauwhata, on the northern banks of Lake Waikare, 45 minutes to Auckland and 40 minutes to Hamilton.

  • The property is situated in the “Golden Triangle” between Auckland, Tauranga and Hamilton – one of the countries fastest growing regions with net additional households forecast to grow by 12,400 homes per annum over the next 15 years.

  • A private plan change rezoned this land to residential in order to allow for the development; over 1,600 homes over 7 years.

  • Landscape led master-planned residential community and commercial hub. The Village Centre will include a café and restaurant, a childcare centre, medical facility, convenience store, retail shops and offices and a children’s playground. The MoE has approved a new primary school within the development.

  • The existing Te Kauwhata community is a thriving township offering primary and secondary schools, a new library, sports clubs (including golf, bowls, rugby and squash) and community and social groups (including Lions, Scouts and Guides).

  • The development will retain 80 hectares as recreation reserve with sports fields, over 5km’s of walking and cycle trails and the creation of a recreational lake to be enjoyed by all residents.

  • There are currently 5 shows homes and a sales suite on-site. Earthworks for the first 162 lots have been completed with house construction commencing in September 2019.
