The property provides a jaw-dropping experience that transports you to a different state of mind. On 5 hectares (12 acres) of waterfront land the owners have created an artisan-chic residence, designed by Professor Allan Wild and his son Bruce, completed in December 2006. Picture travertine marble floors, woven bamboo ceilings, natural linens, huge expanses of glass, and powerful local stone crafted by Tongan stonemasons.

The design theme of the property is sophisticated tribal. The residence showcases museum-quality collections of Maori and Pacific Island artefacts, many of which have been in the owners’ family for over 100 years.

Fossil Cove has four romantic bedrooms (each with spacious marble-walled ensuite), and gorgeous kitchen, dining and living spaces. Almost every room has panoramic views of the Hauraki Gulf and Waitemata Harbour with its uninhabited islands and extinct volcanoes.

The property has a 17 metre (50 ft) heated swimming pool, with a full length solar shelf so you can relax in the warm water with your favourite cocktail while watching schools of fish or dolphins in the bay below.

The residence is set in a very private location in a gated park-like development, with no houses close by. The property can really only be seen from the sea.

There is plenty to do at Fossil Cove, with on-site walks through rain forest, bird watching, fishing from our private cove, snorkelling or swimming.
