This paradisal property enjoyed by three generations of the same family is now proudly presented to the market for the first time in 90 years.
Set on 931 sq m (more or less) of absolute beachfront, the stunning home is located within an exclusive enclave of some of the most prestigious homes Takapuna has to offer.
In 2008, Smedley Design and Geoff Davies Builders crafted the home to the highest quality - specific to the site; its coastal environment, as well as its unique setting. Solid concrete block walls, concrete mid-floor and deck, as well as commercial grade aluminium joinery result in a build masterfully conducted.
The home offers immersive living comfort, constant sunlight, and timeless appeal. From sunrise over iconic Rangitoto Island - flooding the open living areas, to sunset - through high-glazing - as it settles in the west. Generous eaves are an added bonus, providing shade from midday summer sun.
Arriving through a double-height atrium entrance; instant attention is drawn to the magnificent Hauraki Gulf vista with the constant presence of Rangitoto Island. The beach scene is ever-changing as the tide ebbs and flows. Sunbathers, swimmers and dog walkers occupy the lively foreground. Kite surfers and yachts zip by just beyond the waves. Cruise ships idle through the busy shipping lane further out.
Designed for family living and year-round entertaining. Enjoy al fresco dining with wide stacker/slider doors to facilitate indoor and outdoor flow, as well as two cosy gas fireplaces.
Excellent connections flow throughout the home - from the open plan kitchen, living, dining, two living rooms, three bedrooms, two ensuites, family bathroom (with spa bath), guest powder room, gym room and double garage (with internal access). As well as a separate parking bay for two cars.
Well maintained, low maintenance gardens with native ground cover and easily mowed lawn slopes down to the beach.
The boat shed, part of the original beachscape, has been retained and is ideal for boards or dinghy.
