Magnitude of scale combined with geometrical symmetry and proportion add to the grandiose feeling of light and space throughout this magnificent residence. Dramatic features usually reserved for the likes of boutique luxury hotels mix with sheer liveability, resulting in an impressive and unique family home. This balance of palatial extravagance and practicality is experienced over the three levels of living.
A grand, crystal chandelier-lit entrance takes centre stage and creates separation between the more casual rooms, including a sizeable entertainer's kitchen and family room, and the formal lounge and games room. Outdoor entertaining is seamless from all these north-facing rooms via French doors opening to a wide portico deck from which to watch a tennis match unfolding on your own court. Also enjoy the sparkling waters of the swimming pool and spa surrounded by mature palm trees. However, if the weather is not compatible with swimming outdoors, a 25 metre heated indoor pool with a lofty double-storey ceiling is at your disposal. As is a family theatre room, gym, sauna and large pool room with full kitchen.
The upper floor consists of six spacious bedrooms, all with walk-in wardrobes and ensuites and a study with its own private courtyard deck. The master features views of Rangitoto, an exceptionally large ensuite and double walk-in wardrobes. Ten car plus garaging is provided on the lower level with a workshop, wine cellar and food chiller. This floor also has a self-contained one-bedroom apartment, suitable for an au pair. Separate from the main house is the guest house which includes an indoor squash court with lounge, kitchen and bedroom which has its own-gated entrance. Such a home in Auckland is unlikely to exist with such features, privacy and grandness of scale. Unique and desirable, please contact us for further information.
