Incomparable, this extraordinary, waterfront property, Te Rere Cove, is sited at the western end of Waiheke Island and sprawls over just under 14ha in two separate titles. Providing outstanding views westwards, back to Auckland across the sparkling waters and islands of the Hauraki Gulf, the beautiful little island of Motukaha lies just offshore in the foreground.
The owners brief to their architect was to produce a world class home based on the famous Kauri Cliffs Lodge and this has been achieved magnificently. French oak floors, limestone flagstones and granite bench tops combine with state of the art technology to produce a soothing, luxurious, sophisticated home that provides intimate spaces throughout for both entertaining and living.
Features of the home are numerous as you would expect of a property of this calibre; six bedrooms and seven luxury bathrooms, an indoor heated swimming pool, a dining conservatory, a fabulous chef's kitchen with scullery and informal living area, formal dining and living rooms, a study, huge laundry with bathroom, a home theatre, a den with gas fireplace, an elevator, wide verandahs, a self contained separate guest wing, four car garaging and on the lower floor a fully operational winery, along with a tasting room and cellar.
Beautifully landscaped gardens and lawns spill down from the surrounding vineyards along the driveway over a series of tiers, creating a wonderful sense of open park-like space, which converges at the fountain outside the front door of the home.
This world class estate is to be sold by auction.
