Ultimate Architectural Sanctuary!
An exceptional opportunity to own an extraordinary property presents itself...
Located on a knoll at the end of a private road this fantastic residence is the creation of the owner's affinity with both the native bush, the desire for a living environment with light and airy spaces and a collaboration with Copeland Associates Architects.
Enjoying stunning distant views of Auckland City and Rangitoto Island beyond.
The home is sheathed in low maintenance Zincalume corrugate while three rectangular pavilions are angled for views, sun and also form both internal and external spaces. Where the pavilions intersect, a rusticated stone wall penetrates from the outside defining the entrance. This wall also forms a suntrap on its other side sheltering generous entertaining areas which flow seamlessly to wide open living areas and the adjacent pool.
Continuing the integrated theme throughout the home is the use of concrete, granite and generous amounts of glass. The spectacular Butler's Kitchen merges with the outside BBQ area creating multiple options to entertain. A superb up to five metre stud, open plan kitchen and living with an adjacent media room, powder room and the use of sliding doors generates functional and interesting living spaces.
The master suite is a retreat with a luxurious bathroom and stunning floor to ceiling windows - much like sleeping in your very own tree house looking out to the now established easy care gardens. Two additional bedrooms share the main bathroom and also enjoy the bush outlook with complete privacy. An office and a separate laundry with its own outside access to the clothesline and servicing area is stylish and practical.
Extremely well insulated the house is largely self-sufficient using high efficiency solar roof panels for hot water and for a piped system in the floor slabs. Garaging with internal access and plenty of parking behind the electric gate is both convenient and security conscious.
At the rear of the home is a 'Boat Shed' with high stud and roller doors on each end. Incorporating additional space on two levels its ideal as a studio, storage, a teenagers retreat or perhaps an opportunity to work from home.
With spectacular West Coast beaches, parks, wineries and cafes on your doorstep, and not too far as the crow flies (or the helicopter!) to Auckland or North Shore City, this is the lifestyle you don't want to miss.
