Riverside retreat in the city


Prepare to fall in love with this award-winning home on the sandy banks of the Waikato River, architecturally designed and built in 2012. A secret oasis just a few minutes' walk from the Hamilton CBD, this home is a modern marvel, thoughtfully connected to its waterfront location on a large 1,990sqm (more or less) site. A property of this size is a rare find within the Hamilton City precinct and offers luxury, privacy and nature-filled surrounds. Light and spacious, the home was built with family and entertaining in mind and its owners have loved the ease with which it has allowed them to entertain friends and cater to the diverse and evolving needs of a family. The main home comprises 322sqm with a further 68sqm of mezzanine flooring shared above two of the four bedrooms. There are an additional two buildings on the site opening up a myriad of options for those who need space to work from home and/or to accommodate regular guests. These include a double garage (88sqm) with a lined room, ensuite with additional space (currently used as a gym). There is also a triple garage (148sqm) with an upstairs alpine sealed large living room or office with woodburner, kitchenette and bathroom. The real magic of the main home lies in its clever layout, with private spaces tucked discretely off the main communal areas and the sense of connection with the outdoors. During the summer months you will make great use of the expansive decks and Infinity swimming pool. Generous use of warm timber is offset by charcoal and neutral hues and the overall feel is one of calm and understated elegance. The kitchen anchors the hub of the home and features bold cabinetry and an impressive, oversized scullery. Grab a bottle from the cellar and become immersed in the home cinema or retreat to the library with its floor-to-ceiling shelving, this is a home which begs you to relax, take in the expansive river views and enjoy the finer things in life.
