Elegant Eco-Architecture on a Grand Scale


A blend of natural materials come together in the most spectacular fashion at this Country Estate. "To the Manor Born" ... this magnificent residence places prominence on sustainability and space alongside the Riverhead Forest bordering the arguably most picturesque section of the Rangitopuni Stream.

Designed by eco-architects Jorg Schulz and Ferry Poursoltan, this stately six-bedroom home sits on a very secluded, quiet and private 1.7 ha (4.2 acres approx.) of gorgeous flat land which gently slopes to the river where you can picnic beside the riverbanks and paddle or kayak direct from the property!

The solidity and permanence of Waipu stone is softened by macrocarpa beams and eucalyptus saligna flooring, while the use of rammed earth internal walls provides natural heating, cooling and moisture control through the seasons.

With extraordinary attention to detail, rustic charm imbues the interior with ceiling beams, exposed timber and earthen walls creating a uniquely inviting environment. The country kitchen features an Irish Stanley wood burning oven that powers the central heating; an alternative for hot water via a wet back; and of course for cooking.

The cleverly configured layout incorporates; a versatile guest wing and office; family living and entertaining; and bedrooms, including a master with ensuite and balcony. The lounge and conservatory lead into a sheltered atrium with a Louvretec roof where you can unwind as you admire the park-like gardens beyond.

The grounds are breath-taking, with a rotunda and pond producing an overwhelming sense of peace and tranquillity. Adding further appeal is a naturally cool underground cellar for food and wine, triple garage and separate 90sqm (approx.) barn with power and water.

The exclusive setting of Coatesville is home to cafes, pony club, reserve and primary school, and only three minutes' away. 10 minutes to Albany and 20 minutes to Auckland CBD (off-peak).
