Offered to the market for the first time in nearly 40 years this incredible property is the likes of which have never been seen before in Titirangi. Set on 3,384 square metres of parklike grounds this much loved family home is both impressive and welcoming.
Hidden from the road, you get the first glimpse of what lies beyond as you come up the drive. A sprawling, flat lawn, perfect for cricket, football or a marquee, leads to the home. As you approach the main entrance the tennis court and orchard come into view.
An expansive open plan living area, with glowing timber floors, flooded with light, has a stunning view to the pool and lush surroundings. The kitchen & dining area are perfectly positioned to be at the heart of family meals and entertaining. The adjacent sitting area is complete with delightful window seats.
This whole space connects seamlessly to the pool and outdoors. Comparable to a high end resort there is no excuse to be bored here and entertaining will be a dream. There are abundant vegetable gardens, an extensive orchard, and even a hidden inground wine cellar.
Completing the lower level is the lounge with soaring ceilings and a large woodburner to heat the whole space. There are three large bedrooms, one currently used as an office, and the other two open to the lovely deck and lawn. A large family bathroom has a separate shower and toilet.
Upstairs a cosy library and sitting area is a peaceful retreat. Surrounded by sliding, double glazed windows, and overlooking the lounge there is a lovely feeling of space. The master bedroom has a generous ensuite and walk-in robe and the fifth bedroom is also a double.
Walking distance to 3 schools and the bustling Titirangi Village, you can have it all in the heart of one of Auckland's most vibrant suburbs. There has even been a scope assessment for future subdivision giving you a great opportunity to land bank for your future. We encourage you to come and view one of Titirangi's finest as this is a rare offering and unlikely to be repeated.

Locality Guide - Titirangi

Location Description

Titrangi translation from Maori, "The Fringe of Heaven" is a beautiful natural area in the south east of the Waitakere Ranges, bordering the Manukau Harbour and the suburbs of Glen Eden, New Lynn and Green Bay, with Laingholm to the west, and marks the end of Auckland's urban sprawl.

Titirangi has always been described as a haven far from the madding crowds, for potters, artists, weavers, writers etc, but today half the workforce are professional people or managers!

Living in Titirangi offers a much laid back life style away from the hustle and bustle of the city.

Expansive architectural homes stand alongside original cottages in beautiful native bush settings, some with panoramic city or Manukau harbour views.
