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.

    A fantastic property - the views and location are wonderful - the Tower view is WOW! An excellent choice for a large group as the living spaces are generous and comfortable. Also nice to have a couple of options for outdoor eating / sitting depending on where the wind is. We thoroughly enjoyed our time but would in future try and and arrange a slightly later check out time as it would have been nice to enjoy a more relaxed morning the day after the wedding.
