This expansive1047sqm property is surrounded by some of the area's most prestigious real estate and celebrates panoramic views across the Hauraki Gulf.

The location at the top of Clifton Road has easy access. Takapuna Beach is just a quick stroll and a short walk along the shore to the vibrant area's restaurants, cafes, shops and nightlife.

Through the front gate, well-established gardens embrace the grounds and a gracious, circular driveway sets the scene. This home has recently been restored and extended by local architect Fraser Gillies. All the detail has been retained, but still delivers contemporary luxury living.

An elongated, covered balcony with white pillars was created for an entrance the house deserved offering the perfect alfresco living alternative.

The water is immediately visible upon entering the foyer, and the character is evident with gleaming Kauri floors, panelling and architraves, soft, pastel-coloured stained glass and lofty, ornate ceilings.

The dramatic formal dining room has a gas fireplace, while the library area and formal lounge overlook the light and spacious casual living and exceptionally functional modern kitchen. Bi-folding and French doors open out to a two-tiered deck and the uninterrupted outlook to Rangitoto Island can never be built out.

The ground floor bathroom has a sauna and the large tiled laundry could be used as a gym or office as it has its own access. On the second level, the three bedrooms are light-filled and generous in size. The master showcases the best views of the house from its elevated vantage point, and has a private tiled balcony, ensuite with spa bath and walk-in wardrobe.

There's space for a boat and numerous vehicles outside, along with the double garage and workshop. Above this is a completely self-contained apartment that makes the ideal rental/guests/extended family accommodation, teenage retreat or office.
