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.

    Amazing/interesting architectural house design and WOW - those views!! A comfortable, well loved house with everything you need. We hosted a dinner here and the kitchen and house were well equipped to be able to do this.

    Great space for groups the dining and lounge area are fantastic. We were there in August, so loved having the fire to sit around. Summer would be amazing, there are plenty of decks to take advantage of when the sun is shining. There were 7 of us and we had a fabulous girls weekend away. The views are brilliant. Very relaxing house to stay in.

    Great location, Great views, Excellent living space/ seating for the amount of people that can stay. Everything you could ask for in the kitchen. We arrived on the coldest weekend of the year and the fireplace and electric blankets kept us warm and comfortable for the duration of our trip. Would highly recommend this place and i would definitely stay here again!

    Fabulous location with superb views and a great Winter Retreat with the fireplace. New towels, coffee mugs & some upgraded beds would be a good idea. I think it feels like a well-loved bach and a few improvements would make it ideal.
