Te Whau utopia
Fairytale views of pretty Putiki Bay are just one of the highlights of this enchanting property, nestled on a private hill on the exclusive Te Whau peninsula.
Set on 5.6 hectares and surrounded by glorious, well-established gardens and native bush, the substantial standalone guest suite and huge double garage/workshop are welcome additions to the luxurious main house.
Every corner of the home has been designed with elegance and finesse.
Its large, central living hub, with attractive designer kitchen and wood-burning fireplace, flows out to a capacious entertaining patio overlooking a delightful curved garden, with dazzling views of the bay.
A handsome open fireplace and built-in bar feature in the second, opulent living room.
The spacious master bedroom also enjoys framed vistas of the sparkling sea, a walk-through wardrobe and an exquisite en-suite bathroom, complete with curved shower, separate designer bath tub, underfloor heating and mood lighting.
A built-in laundry and stylish powder room complete the ground floor while, upstairs, the large private office enjoys its own bathroom and the best views in the house.
Across the way, the sizeable visitor studio has a dreamy deck overlooking pristine forest.
From its bathroom you can view the ponga ferns while taking a shower.
Meander around the acreage on its high-grade garden pathways and discover lavender, hebes, hibiscus, olives and roses along the way.
Any Te Whau address is a coveted one, but this one also benefits from a sunny, nor-westerly aspect and its own water bore.
