No detail has been overlooked, no luxury spared in the creation of
this magnificent English-style home. Set privately on 2.0300
hectares (more or less) of estate-like grounds bordering the upper
reaches of the Waitemata Harbour, it has been built with both
passion and vision and it shows.
Gather in one of the living areas to play, converse and entertain, or step out onto the terrace to truly appreciate a garden created by celebrity landscape designer Gary Boyle. It's finely balanced sense of formality with clipped hedges and striking pergolas echo with heritage touches yet works so beautifully against the backdrop of native woodlands. Its centrepiece is a heated pool, below which is a large caterer's kitchen and 2000-bottle wine cellar protected with old iron prison gate. Inside, one wing of the lower floor was designed as a home office suite with external access. Relax in the formal living room with its outlook over Lucas Creek and the slopes of Greenhithe on the opposite shore. Or climb the winding back stairs to the fairytale turret with its 360-degree view out over the tree tops to remind you of how close you are to the city - there's the Sky Tower and Rangitoto's iconic outline.
At this home's heart, a soaring entry is underpinned with oak and stone latticed floors. Climb the curvaceous stairs to the bedroom floor where privacy is ensured for all. A four-bedroom children's wing includes a TV snug, while the master suite has a sitting area, balcony, ensuite and dressing room. Guests or extended family can enjoy the self-contained suite with its bedroom, private balcony, bathroom and separate stair access. Beautifully proportioned, exquisitely planned and executed, this is a fairytale setting for a fairytale life. Make it your happily ever after. While just five minutes drive from Albany, this is your personal playground.
