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.
Extras: Cleaning (Required, NZ$98.00 per stay); Linen (Optional, NZ$20.00 per person);
Notes for guests requiring disabled access - the house is not fully equipped but fairly well set up for people with physical limitations. We do note however that there are a few steps to enter the house - previous guests have provided disabled access by bring a ramp to attach up to the deck which is approx 40cm above the ground level on the front of the house. The master bedroom has lots of clearance around the bed and the shower is step / lip free with a handheld nozzle. However the width of both the bathroom door and the shower opening is narrower than optimal at 760mm, rather than 810mm. Hope this helps with your planning : )
