The views will take your breath away as soon as you come down the driveway and will never cease to amaze you with a panorama across the entire Hauraki Gulf, its islands, beaches, harbours and rural vistas with Auckland in the far horizon.
Secluded amongst 4ha, half in pasture and half in mature Kauri and native trees, a covenanted bush area with Tui, Wood Pigeons and Kakas, a rare native bat and Hocksetter frogs.
The pool and its self-contained pool house set the scene for your summer entertainment while in cooler weather you will love the cosiness of the library/lounge with floor to ceiling window to encapsulate the sea views.
This extremely private home, designed by the late architect Rewi Thompson and fitted out by interior designer Simon Pritchett, will impress you in so many ways by its well thought features such as wine cellar, wind turbine providing some of the power, under-floor heating under the tiles, oak timber floors, fireplace. Some separation is created between the 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms with children and guests living on one side of the house with their own lounge, 2 bedrooms and bathroom facing the bush, a bedroom and bathroom close to the entrance while the master bedroom and its ensuite and office are above the library.
Stage one, a barn was built in 1997 with the rebuild and extensions completed in 2005 and the pool was added in 2014.
The large kitchen is in the hub of the house with 2 spacious stone bench tops, quality fittings and access from both living areas.
You can follow the sun on the 3 different decks through high bi-fold doors for morning coffee to drinks in the evening always facing this magnificent vista.
Just over an hour drive North of Auckland, swim and surf on Pakiri Beach and Goat Island Marine reserve, enjoy the Leigh Sawmill Cafe down the road. Matakana wineries, shops, cinemas and markets a bit further and retreat to the privacy of this superb property.
