Enjoy spectacular views from this seaside estate in Bayswater

This peaceful 1189m2 property is set back from the road, enjoying direct water access and one of the best outlooks of the street.

Along with its spectacular views, the local area is sought-after for its family-friendly atmosphere and proximity to popular beach-fringed Devonport village and vibrant Takapuna. Another big drawcard of this Norwood Road neighbourhood is the short walk to the ferry service – the perfect option for CBD commuters and city enjoyment.

A private driveway with brick fences introduces the property. It was purchased by the current owner and her late husband in the ‘80s, as a three-bedroom cottage built around 1945. He was a builder and undertook the major renovation project, skilfully expanding the now two-level home and maximising the magnificent outlook from every angle. The quality of craftsmanship is evident throughout, with extensive use of Kauri and thoughtful use of space.

An enormous curved bay window showcases the view in the main living area. It really must be seen to be believed – an ever-changing spectacle that encompasses Auckland’s iconic landmarks and a spectacular synergy of land, sea and sky. It’s alive with movement from dawn ‘til dusk, with the constant activity on the Auckland Ports, boats, yachts and passenger ferries splicing through the harbour, early morning rowers and the lights of the city coming to life at night.

The outlook spans from the Harbour Bridge and Waitakeres, across the Auckland city skyline and America’s Cup base, Ngataringa Bay, North Head, Mount Victoria and around to Rangitoto. The room is warmed by the wood-burning fireplace and French doors open out to the neatly manicured, well-established gardens and entertaining terrace. Steps lead down from here to the water’s edge and boatshed, which is the perfect place to store boats, kayaks and paddleboards.

The modern kitchen doesn’t miss out on the view and is adjacent to the casual dining space, with its plentiful built-in shelving. Across the other side of the entrance foyer, the formal dining and lounge rooms also open out to the outdoor living. There are two spacious bedrooms, a single bedroom/ study and main bathroom located on this floor, before a wide, curved staircase arrives up at the master retreat. It boasts its own office, bathroom and spacious bedroom, with a private deck and enormous picture window framing the show-stopping views.

This is a truly rare and unique piece of waterfront land, which showcases a visual symphony of views. It’s an enticing prospect for family living as is, or could be developed and modernised to add further value.
