Description

  • House has featured in 'NZ Life & Leisure' & 'ArchitectureNZ'.
  • Spacious family home including a piano, a 3-storey tower, large decks and a verandah.
  • The house, at an elevation of 120m commands spectacular views of Muriwai Beach and the Tasman Sea.

The Tower House is situated a pleasant downhill walk away from the beach with a choice of the road or bush track for the uphill return. Around the corner is Only Fools and Horses' swimming pool with Horse Hire available a little further on.

Muriwai, on Auckland's unspoilt wild West Coast, 35 minutes from Downtown Auckland and 50 mins from the Airport, is noted for its Gannet Colony, Golf Course, 30-mile surfing Beach and its proximity to adventure activities in Woodhill Forest and to walks and trails for all abilities. There are tennis courts and two cafes and a dairy. Waimauku and Kumeu are noted for their wineries, wedding venues and restaurants and there are Hot Pools at Helensville.

The Tower House has extensive decks and verandahs allowing outdoor living in all but the very worst storms and with numerous bifold doors the house, in fine weather, can be opened to the elements and to the constant activity of the sky and the sea. The third 'bathroom' is outdoors on the back deck. A log fire keeps the house warm in winter.

Two-thirds of the house, which measures some 300 sq m, was built as an extension to the original, improved cottage. The house has been used as a family home.

The Tower House has been used for retreats, seminars, corporate events and as a film set. The house is particularly well suited for families and groups of families - children are welcome. All sorts of other groups have also stayed. The Tower House aims to provide exceptional value for large numbers.

  • Stunning location and views

    Stunning location and views. Great house for a large group, with large social areas but lots of room to have some time out if needed.

    Best location! Views to die for, they are always changing you could never get sick of seeing it. You walk up a secret path to this cottage, open the door and walk down the hall to this great open area. This room is perfect for every occasion, and every person.

    The house is just superb and was fantastic for our family weekend including our 6 grand children (4 under 3) we were able to spread the children around the house to give them their own sleeping space. The house had everything that we needed. The weather was not conducive to us being out and about, but with so much space we were able to cope beautifully. The views from the house are just magical.....thoroughly recommend the house for larger family groups.
