This sophisticated North Shore coastal architectural masterpiece home started with the purchase of a prized waterfront section in Torbay with 180 degree breath-taking views of sea and horizon.
This uninterrupted sea scape takes you from Motutapu and Motuihe Islands, around to the Noises, and Coramandel Peninsula. Great Barrier sits centre stage then Tiritiri Matangi, Gulf Harbour, Whangaparaoa Peninsula, Little barrier and around to Okura and Long Bay.
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 “barbeque 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 to 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 guestroom 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 jewel in crown is the master suite; luxurious and spacious, providing a private and restful space. Expansive glass frontage ensures the view remains a focal point. Twin dressing rooms allows for individual space, ample storage and furnished in keeping with the rest of the home.
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 is a must view for a serious buyer.
