Every once in a while, a property becomes available that is quite unlike any other. This home, in its own private enclave on the cliffs above Karaka Bay, has the kind of breathtaking views and unique position that only become available once in a generation.
The grand, Terry Hitchcock-designed residence has been built to make the most of the expansive, ever-changing vistas. Almost every room in the house enjoys its own unique take on the view. The outdoor entertaining area flows onto an expansive flat lawn that stretches out to meet the Hauraki Gulf, with Browns Island, Motutapu and Waiheke beyond. Established native trees and lush subtropicals frame and finish the scene.
The ground floor level is split into three distinct living areas, offering the kind of flexible living the modern family requires. Create a teen retreat, media room or perhaps the ultimate man cave, while still retaining both formal and informal living spaces. A spacious kitchen, separate laundry and guest powder room complete this floor.
Upstairs, there’s a master bedroom with ensuite and walk-through wardrobe, along with three other bedrooms and the family bathroom. Curved, shuttered windows and angled ceilings give these spaces a sense of intimacy and interest, and draw the eye out towards the view.
The lower level has generous double garaging and storage, plus a large separate garage for the boat. At the end of the road there’s pedestrian-only access down to the sandy shores of Karaka Bay for those soul-filling morning walks or daily swims. It’s easy to see why the same family has cherished this special spot for 30 years. Don’t miss your chance to make it your own.
