Absolutely breathtaking family home in Auckland
'Incomparable’ is probably the best way to describe this breathtaking property, with a house of this standing rarely seen in Auckland, New Zealand. Not only does the 7,072 square feet (657square meters) house sit on 1806 square meters of waterfront land but it was designed just a few years ago by award-winning architects Fearon Hay. It is exquisite in every way, from the sensational glazed entry foyer that allows you see through the house to the sea, to the vast gourmet kitchen, infinity edge pool, and the master bedroom where two walls of glass slide open so that you feel as if you are hovering over the tranquil waters of the Waitemata Harbour. Set privately off the road past its all-weather tennis court and four-car garage, the house eases out over three levels to give ultimate flexibility of use. A couple of steps up from the entry, the master wing contains two adjoining bedrooms for younger children or for use as a home office, as well as an ensuite where a sculptural bath sits in dress circle position in front of the view. The main living level has a television room near the kitchen, a large butler’s scullery and open-plan living and dining.
