North Shore Coastal Masterpiece For Sale
OPEN HOME SATURDAY 6TH JUNE 2015 11AM TO 12PM
For Sale by Negotiation – $3.4 million
This sophisticated architectural masterpiece is the result of an eleven year relationship between owner and architect, which began with the purchase of a prized waterfront section in Torbay with breathtaking views of sea and horizon.
You will marvel at the views of Motutapu, Rakino Island and Motuihe Islands, around to the Noises, and Coromandel Peninsula. Great Barrier sits centre stage then Tiritiri Matangi, Gulf Harbour, Whangaparaoa Peninsula, Little Barrier and around to Okura and Long Bay.
The spacious open plan area of the home comprises kitchen, dining and lounge. Large tiled outdoor areas either side of the lounge enhance the indoor/outdoor flow. A central 13 metre heated lap pool can be easily accessed from the guest room which comes complete with a two way bathroom.
The patio is fully covered and leads down to a private grassed yard fringed by iconic Pohutukawa. The marine reserve where riparian rights apply completes the picture.
The second level contains another guest room, a lounge complete with bar, and the master bedroom which comes with ‘his and hers’ walk in wardrobes and stunning bathroom. This master suite is the jewel in the crown of this masterpiece.
A glimpse of turquoise through the glass squares in the front door of this coastal home is just a sneak preview of what is to be found on the other side. Masterfully designed and sited the home is an extension of the setting; the clever architecture ensures the sea views are not interrupted by the house itself but enhanced by it and captured by every room. Expansive glass frontage frames the view on the bottom level and both sides of the large lounge area allowing the view through to the back of the house.
This home has a dramatic architectural partnership of sharp geometric angles and soft curves throughout the design that can be fully experienced in the vast kitchen which features an ample curved island bench, feature ceiling and sun-soaked breakfast nook.
Clever use of elements creates the illusion of separated spaces in the flow through spacious open plan area of the home comprising kitchen, dining and lounge. The lounge fire place is dual function, gas or wood burning and features a beautiful granite hearth and lovely wooden mantel piece.
Large tiled out door areas either side of the lounge area provide outdoor living choice, both fitted with “barbecue ready” inbuilt gas connections. Out the front, the patio is fully covered to provide all weather use and leads down to the completely private grassed yard, iconic Pohutukawa and beyond, the marine reserve where riparian rights apply.
The other side of the lounge area flows out to the courtyard and a 13 meter heated lap pool which is central to the bottom level of the home. Also on this level are the utility areas, a guest room, a bathroom accessed by the guest room and pool area and a purpose built wine cellar.
A graceful curving stair case leads up to the second level of the home comprising a second guest room, lounge complete with bar, and master suite.
The opulent bathroom is a combination of style, practicality and sophistication. Twin vanities, lavish spa bath, spacious shower with a generously sized central rain flow rose, completed by separate toilet and bidet from where it is still possible to enjoy the sea.
Every detail has been catered for including under floor heating throughout, dual system water heating, gas or electric, security alarms, and internal access to the double garage.
This North Shore coastal masterpiece is a must view for a serious buyer.
