Description

European Opulence on Wellingtons Riviera


With its golden sands, boulevard ambience and waterfront vistas, Oriental Bay has long been considered Wellington's Riviera. But never before has it been possible to acquire a home that exudes European sophistication on a scale as grand as this. Step out of the lift directly to your own private floor and you'll be immersed in a palatially proportioned showcase of space and light that sets the standard for elegance and luxury in the bay. Every aspect of this single-level apartment and harbourside terrace extending to more than 450sqm (more or less) will leave you breathless and exhilarated.

From the soaring 3.2m ceilings to the impeccable design and decor, to the vast gallery like wall surfaces for exhibiting art with gallery-like gusto, the attention to detail is extraordinary. Be it the stainless, glass and marble kitchen, the multiple sets of towering French doors or the bifolding shutters opening up the panoramic northern frontage to a broad, sunny terrace with exquisitely detailed wrought iron work. The regal master bedroom suite, with the Philippe Stark en-suite, shares the same divine views and waterfront connection as the enormous drawing room and dining areas.

A spectacular cloister, extending the full, cricket pitch length of the property, glazed at either end, separates the grand troika of waterfront rooms from the bedroom wing (two doubles, bathroom, guest bathroom, study, and supersized utility room). The permanence and heritage of this Category II historic building blends sublimely with such high-spec trappings as eclectic designer lighting, Italian fittings, mobile storage, underfloor and radiator central heating, and the vivid contrast of marble, tile and dark stained floorboards.

Strengthened in 2017 to 100% of the current seismic code. Never before on the open market, this glamorous yet refined residence represents the very pinnacle of blue-chip waterfront living.
