Timeless and Elegant in a Dress Circle Position


Occupying a dress circle site, on a prominatory in Auckland's North Shore, this home is in perfect harmony with its private ocean front position overlooking the channel, changing tides, private beach and with Rangitoto centred beautifully in the view. Elegant and spacious the home was designed and built for the current owners about ten years ago to replace an older bungalow which had occupied this spectacular site for around 100 years. Combining all the attributes of heritage architecture, starting from scratch provided the opportunity to embrace a modern aesthetic whilst maximize the views allowing light and sun to flood into the home. Solid masonry wrapped in weatherboard is sympathetic to the original bungalow and whilst is unassuming from the street the homes size and grandness is evident from the water or beach. Spanning three levels, European oak floors and a soft neutral palette of whites create a neutral canvas to maximize and enjoy the spectacular views. A seamless flow between indoors and out is created with floor to ceiling bi-fold doors which open up to wide Sommerset Maughan style verandahs running the width of the home on two levels. Capture the bush, sea and beach views these provide perfect privacy and a wonderful sanctuary for relaxing or entertaining. Luxuriously appointed interiors include sweeping open living rooms, kitchen with scullery, four bedrooms,study and five bathrooms, including a semi separate guest suite. The ground level cellar with open fire and kitchenette is the perfect winter retreat or additional entertaining option and the pool overlooking the view has its own changing room and shower. This home exudes quality, comfort, privacy and a serene sense of timelessness with views that change daily. Positioned in easy proximity to Auckland's CBD, motorways, excellent schools, Takapuna township and Devonport the property promises a lifestyle hard to match anywhere in the world.
