Beautifully crafted interiors feature polished timber floors, cedar joinery, hand-made rugs, kilims and New Zealand art work. Full length doors and windows open from every room onto expansive north-facing decks which wrap around the house taking in the spectacular views. A double height formal living room with cathedral ceilings, open fire place, hand-crafted formal staircase and mezzanine balcony forms the centre piece of this unique home. Folding glass doors separate a further family living area with cosy wood burner and large modern open plan kitchen. 7 spacious and beautiful bedrooms, all have stunning north facing views, polished timber floors, beautiful linens & fabrics. The 5 modern spacious bathrooms feature walk in showers, luxurious baths and beautiful mosaics.

Peace, seclusion and tranquility abound - beautiful river and sea views, secluded swimming, 150 acres of organic farmland, walks, sub-tropical gardens, private jetty, fishing, kayaks, and access to the beautiful deserted sandy beaches at Takou Bay. Be totally pampered in privacy and luxury by our experienced massage & beauty therapist. Gourmet catering also available by prior arrangement.

The property is centrally located to explore the wider Bay of Islands, yet hidden away from the hustle and bustle. Enjoy the flourishing birdlife; wander enchanted gardens and riverside walks, paddle to Takou Bay; relax, refresh and romance - or bask in the bliss of doing absolutely nothing.
