Ara Hills is the home of a new village based community of around 700 homes on 84ha of rolling hill country just 3km from Orewa village. On its eastern boundary, the site borders State Highway 1 and is directly accessible from the motorway exit at Grand Drive.

To the west is the 172ha Nukumea Reserve. This Department of Conservation-owned land features pristine native bush and provides a stunning green backdrop to Ara Hills which is alive with wildlife and birds.

The upper reaches of the Ara Hills site has sweeping views of Hauraki Gulf.

This is an environment designed to engender a sense of community and belonging.


Village, hamlet and hillside homes


'Ara' means both 'track' as in pathway, and 'to wake' or 'to rise up' in Te Reo. This seemed an ideal name for our beautiful hillside which faces the rising sun, offers grandstand views from the upper reaches and will feature a network of trails around and through the bush.

Ara Hills will have homes for sale in three types of neighbourhoods - villages which are built to create an urban feel, hamlets which are larger sections on streets grouped into loose enclaves to promote a community feel, and hillside homes around the bush clad fringes of the site where generous properties will make the most of expansive rural, reserves or Gulf views.

You will be able to choose from a range of housing types including apartments, terraced houses, and standalone homes on compact or large sections.
