Perfect Sumner Sanctuary

This elegant family home situated on a very sheltered and private site is offered for sale for the first time in 25 years. Much thought and attention to detail is obvious in the outdoor garden spaces and indoor outdoor flow of this much loved home.

The current owners engaged David Childs Architects for a significant extension and remodelling of the main house in 2000, the guest house extension in 2005 was designed by Chris Wilson of Wilson and Hill Architects.

A magical sanctuary to behold, as the address suggests the panoramic views on offer here are spectacular. Offering unrivalled privacy and tranquillity with city and sea outlooks, this elegant contemporary family home (422m2) is sunny and spacious with immaculate gardens to suit. But that's not all. A spacious guest house with private entry adds further appeal to this fabulous property.

Poised on a sheltered 1475m2 manicured section overlooking land, sea and mountains, every detail has been considered in this exquisite family home. Three double bedrooms (master with ensuite + walk-in robe) and three modern bathrooms provide generous accommodation for family life, while three living areas including an open plan kitchen/dining/living area and two separate lounges promise versatile living. Multiple sets of doors ensure exceptional indoor/outdoor flow at every turn, while the beautifully appointed kitchen with premium fixtures ensure quality and style. An office/sunroom, separate laundry and storage room add to the space. Double glazing, two wood fires, a ducted heatpump system, and underfloor heating make this an incredibly warm home to retreat to.

Beautifully sheltered and graced with superb sun and views, the tiered north-west facing gardens comprise of multiple entertainment areas connected by sweeping steps and established greenery. A sanctuary to behold complete with entrance pond and native birdsong, a beautiful terrace and courtyard provide plenty of options for sharing the serenity, while a heated in-ground pool and an expansive deck is a bonus. Completing the appeal is drive on access with off-street parking for three cars , a triple car garage with plenty of storage, and a garden shed.

Located just minutes from the shops and services of Sumner and the beach, the Port Hills are even closer, while the city is an easy 15-minute drive.

A prestigious palace presented to perfection, words barely do justice to the gold standard living on offer here. You will just have to experience the magic for yourself. Get in touch to find out more.

The owner is a bespoke importer to the trade of Restoration Hardware Furniture from the USA.
