A stunning contemporary home with amazing sea views from every room. Located on one of the highest points in the Auckland Region, you will see from the Hen and Chicken Islands, across the horizon to Little Barrier, Great Barrier and the North tip of Coromandel. To the South, views over Omaha, Sandspit and back to Rangitoto in Auckland complete the picture.

Completed in late 2012, the architectural design of this home makes the most of the superb outlook. The stacking windows in the open-plan living area roll aside to open the interior to the huge deck, creating fabulous indoor-outdoor flow. The deck is furnished to make the most of outdoor living with a large 6-seater table, an outdoor couch for lounging, and a gas BBQ. And, to top off the relaxation, enjoy a glorious spa under the stars.

Aside from BBQs, the fully-equipped designer kitchen, with stone bench tops, gas cooking and dishwasher, along with the extendable (up to 10-seater) dining table provide everything you need for entertaining. Throughout the house, the furnishings are sleek and stylish, complemented by an amazing contemporary art collection with pieces in each room. Timber floors throughout the house lead to the fully-tiled bathrooms complete with walk-in showers, a freestanding tub (with a view of course!) and infinity gas hot water. There is also a full laundry w dryer, flat-screen TV (no Freeview, but DVDs available) with great cell reception on both Vodafone and Telecom gives excellent 3G internet connectivity from your laptop or mobile devices.

For winter stays the house is cosy and warm – the north facing aspect means sun streams in through the double-glazed windows during the day; while a wood burner provides heating in the evenings.

Located on a quiet, private 6 acre rural site just 5 minutes from Goat Island in Leigh and 10 minutes to Pakiri beach.

  • Stunning views, what an awesome winter retreat - this has to be...

    Stunning views, what an awesome winter retreat - this has to be the warmest house we have ever stayed in! So much to explore from this spot, yet so peaceful and away from it all. A great place to catch up with friends and very dog friendly.

    A great family winter getaway spot with great veiws, spa and fireplace to keep warm. Close to Auckland but feels remote. Has everything you need and a bonus to be able to take our dog. highly recommend.

  • We had the most relaxing family holiday here in the one week...

    We had the most relaxing family holiday here in the one week of year when uni and school holidays overlap. Close to Auckland but feels a long way away. It is private and warm in the winter with the fireplace and spa. It had everything we needed and despite mixed weather there was always a lovely outlook. Comfortable beds with great water pressure. Enjoyed visits to Pakiri beach with our dog in tow it was a great spot for a relaxing family holiday.
