This impressive Takapuna home on Lake Pupuke has its own private jetty

Embracing the shores of Lake Pupuke and crafted entirely from poured concrete, this Takapuna residence is a masterful statement of modern design. It was conceived by renowned architect Steve McCracken – a dramatic, solid structure that showcases the cinematic lake vistas from every angle and presents the ultimate in luxury family living.

Magnificent, newly-landscaped tropical gardens line the pathway to the water’s edge, where a large jetty makes for truly special alfresco entertaining on the water, as well as a significant space to store paddleboards and kayaks.

The prestigious ‘Golden Mile’ location is highly sought-after, coveted for its proximity to Takapuna, just a 5-minute walk from home, as well as Thorne Bay and Takapuna beach just across the road. The neighbourhood is in zone for top North Shore schools, with excellent private options an easy bus ride away.

The property is set back from the road, with an electric security gate and intercom system protecting the compound. Architecture aficionados will recognise the flair and finesse of the residence’s striking design and dimensions – introduced by a concrete bridge crossing over a deep tropical garden at the front entrance. The lake is immediately visible through the front door, with the light-filled, central staircase separating the two wide levels. Soft new carpets and touches of timber complement and balance the industrial-style aesthetic inside.

The formal lounge and dining room is on one side of the top floor, with the kitchen and casual dining located on the other. Both open out to the spacious deck that extends the entire length of the level, where a glass balustrade leaves the outlook uninterrupted and two Louvretec canopies ensure weather protection. Magical lake views are as captivating by day as by night, with birdlife, water activity and weather patterns creating an ever-changing spectacle.

The chef’s kitchen has a large triangular concrete island bench at its heart and boasts high-quality appliances. A covered outdoor walkway arrives at a separate bedroom, lounge and bathroom, which makes the ideal teenage retreat or guest accommodation. Downstairs, the master retreat is still very much immersed in the view and has a walk-in wardrobe and large ensuite with bath and two sinks. The two remaining bedrooms share a bathroom on the other side of this floor and all have their own outdoor access.

An in-ground spa sits within the terrace down here, before steps lead down to the platforms of flat lawn that extend out to the top of the garden. Wooden boardwalks meander through the lush, vibrant and fragrant plantings that have been landscaped to perfection, arriving at the private jetty and direct water access.

This property is presented to an impeccable standard and will captivate those with a passion for design and the highly-coveted Takapuna lifestyle.
