Beauty at Home

SOLD - This listing was sold in October 2019
A house is more than mere bricks and mortar... especially when it's a stunning display of artistic and architectural excellence as with our subject property, whose Maori name "ki runga i te puke" (up the hill) belies the property's incredible scope and scale. Nestled into its hillside setting, the home expands vertically and horizontally to encompass light, warmth and mesmerising views over the city below.

Built by our owners, the robust and timeless building materials provide reassuring solidity, coupled with environmental harmony. The stone and rock act as a natural heat stores and the home maximises its northerly aspect with solar water heating, while discreet ducted heating and cooling systems ensure a stable internal climate.

With a 429m2 floor area, the internal proportions reflect the home's exterior mass - floor to ceiling windows flood the home with sun, while the abundance of open space creates a zen-like ambience. Living options include formal and family spaces, while an office and gym round out the benefits. Your master suite can be up or down and overnight guests will be spoilt for choice with the luxurious accommodation on offer.

Set on 6,031m2 (almost 1 & a ½ acres), the brilliantly terraced and landscaped grounds are a testament to the foresight and passion of our clients. Over 250m2 of decks and terraces provide the perfect backdrop for summer entertaining and electric louvres ensure the outdoor party can continue, even if the sun doesn't! Garaging for four vehicles is a dream come true on the hill, with the bonus of extra off street parking to accommodate visitor's cars, trailers and boats - all at once!

Having built & honed this masterpiece, our owners are now focussed on starting a new chapter in their lives and will be passing the torch to a new generation.
