Impressive. Exceptional. Spectacular.
A total reclad with every area remodelled to a high level. Working on a remote island has it’s challenges but one we enjoyed and were thrilled to deliver a high end residential home.
You approach down the long drive, park the car and walk up the Italian porcelain steps to the front door. It opens onto what can only be described as a truly grand entrance.
A two metres-wide central staircase leads you to the genuinely breathtaking living space and decks. First thing to take your breath away is the spectacular, 300-degree sweeping, north-to-south ocean view. You can see all the way from Waiheke out to Motuihue, right round, taking in Maraetai opposite, as far as Pakihi island, Kawakawa Bay and almost to the Coromandel.
The house is equally impressive. From the elegant, expansive lounge across to the high-class kitchen with Miele appliances and butler’s pantry, round to the generous guest bedroom overlooking the bay.
A unique feature is the wooden spiral stairway leading to the second guest bedroom, a large garret-style room whose ceiling is in the roof and which again has staggeringly impressive views. The exceptional master bedroom with a large luxurious ensuite bathroom, walk-in shower and bathtub has been created as a peaceful haven downstairs and facing west.
Below ground level is the full-size double garage and a room just for a wine cellar.
As well as a most exceptional home, this 3698m2 property looking out over picturesque Takirau Bay is a totally separate self-contained studio apartment. It has its own gate entrance, deck over the bay, modern kitchen, living, separate bedroom area and separate bathroom.
