This immaculate Takapuna home offers the best of waterfront living

This show-stopping residence is located on Takapuna’s iconic Kitchener Road – a freehold 1249m2 more or less property with direct water access. With a striking design befitting its incredible outlook and position, the luxury home presents the ultimate in spacious contemporary living by the sea.

Found at the heart of the Golden Mile, the picturesque, prestigious neighbourhood is within flat walking distance to Milford and Takapuna. Both townships offer a vast selection of cafes, bars and restaurants, as well as boutique and mall shopping, supermarkets and entertainment. The gate at the base of the property opens out onto the North Shore coastal walk and North Shore City heritage trail, which link Milford, Thorne Bay and Takapuna beaches.

The home that originally occupied the site was crafted in 1945 as a bach, designed by acclaimed New Zealand architect Vernon Brown. It was hand-dismantled to make way for the new residence seven years ago.

The vendors worked with award-winning architectural designer Mark McLeay from Creative Arch to bring their dream vision to life. The dazzling views have been captured and maximised from every angle and the position, tucked beneath the roadside, ensures excellent weather protection.

Parking is at a premium within the private compound, boasting a large turning area and off-street parking space, an internal double garage, as well as a single garage up on Kitchener Road. The interior aesthetic is Scandinavian-style, with light American Ash floors and stairs completed with white, gallery-style walls. An Italian made internal lift services the three upper levels. A profusion of glass captures the elevated sea vistas and grand Rangitoto landscape – the perfect vantage point for the upcoming America’s Cup.

The top floor is dedicated to the garage, with the next level down comprising of the dramatic entry foyer with a mezzanine bridge across to the master retreat. This boasts a walk-in wardrobe and tiled ensuite. Downstairs, the chef’s kitchen was created by DeBruin-Judge (as were the two-and-a-half bathrooms throughout) and features two Fisher & Paykel ovens, two dishwashers, an ILVE hob and a huge, fully-equipped scullery. There are two lounges and a formal dining area also on this level, built around a central outdoor courtyard. Stacking glass doors access this all-weather living and entertaining zone, enhanced with a LouvreTec canopy, American DCS barbeque and Escea fireplace.

The ground floor offers the remaining accommodation – three bedrooms serviced by the family bathroom – plus the large separate laundry. The rooms down here open out to the flat lawns and exquisite landscaping that envelops the property, maintained by a computerised irrigation system. Excellent use of space has resulted in multiple storage options throughout, with areas to store bikes, kayaks, skis, lifejackets and gardening gear.

This spectacular residence epitomises the pinnacle of waterfront Takapuna living.
