At the heart of the home, the high stud ceilings, polished concrete flooring, bespoke timber features, soaring schist and light- filled open plan living, combine to achieve that rare alchemy of scale and warmth.

Sweeping water and countryside views are as serene as they are private, with stacking sliders that capture all-day sun, opening to create exceptional indoor outdoor flow to the large undercover entertainment area with schist outdoor fireplace and in-roof speakers. The waterfront boundary allows for endless exploring, launch your kayak or jetski and head out to the Manukau Harbour for a fish!
