1.5 (i) Introduction

The property is located on the Southern side of Otitori Bay Road almost at the bottom of the road (which finishes as an esplanade along French Bay). The section falls away from the street down into a bush filled valley. There is a single garage on the street at the top end of the property which is cantilevered out over the bank. A crude sleep-out has been built below this cantilever and out from it. The house is sited on a bench made in the slope about six metres below the road and thirteen and a half metres in from the street boundary. The house is level with the cut ground on its northern side. A half-basement has been formed beneath the house on its lower side, facing south. The entire section is bush covered.
