Grand Estate on Takapuna’s Waterfront. Three Homes and three adjoining titles of 4300sqm

This unique property comprises of three separate residences in one ownership on over 4300m2 of established clifftop land, it is without doubt an ultra-rare and truly remarkable opportunity. The one-of-a-kind property boasts a location and dimensions that are unmatched on the North Shore, with the land separated into three titles – 33, 35 and 35a Clifton Road. Whether the entire lot is purchased as one, or divided up and procured as a combination of two or individually, these homes enjoy an illustrious position in one of the country’s most esteemed and discreet neighbourhoods.

Takapuna’s remarkable beach, restaurants, cafes, shops and nightlife are just a pleasant beachfront stroll away, with the local Hauraki village meeting all daily needs. Commuters will relish the ease of access to the CBD with the handy motorway onramp, or have the option of catching one of the ferries that depart from Bayswater, Stanley Point or Devonport.

Completely private from the street, an electric gate opens into  the incredible grounds, which have been landscaped to resemble a tropical resort. The sweeping driveway meanders through rushing streams, rock pools and waterfalls, which are surrounded by mature palms, a towering stone wall and dramatic outdoor sculpture.

The estate’s three titles include the dramatic main residence, with attached on-site housekeeper and gardener’s quarters, the Waterfront Cottage and the street front guest cottage. The main drive currently accesses two homes with an additional drive already in existence.

The main residence is reminiscent of a grand, Hamptons-style estate, a sprawling white weatherboard and brick structure that faces directly out to sea. The entrance hall is a wide double story turret, with tiled floors stepping down to the large drawing room and billiards room. Interiors have been designed with a distinct nautical theme, with rich solid timber floors, joinery and panelling. The top floor’s numerous living areas are flooded with light and capture breathtaking views of the Hauraki Gulf and Rangitoto from every aspect. Living areas open out to a central swimming pool and the two bedrooms are serviced by two bathrooms and dressing rooms.

The Beachside Cottage is located across the circular driveway from the main residence.  Enjoying fabulous views  it offers the proportions and  character of an individual home.  It is currently two large bedrooms and two bathrooms, plus  double garage. It flows out to outdoor living overlooking the park-like lawns that extend out to the cliff.

The Guest Cottage is located at the front of the property, a  two-bedroom, one-bathroom residence with a separate street entrance. It has a light-filled open-plan lounge and dining and private outdoor living.

Outside, sweeping lawns, established gardens and ancient pohutukawa lead to a curved glass barrier,  an inspirational spot to relax and be immersed in the drama of views of the channel and sea below, while the sunken deck is the perfect sheltered spot to enjoy summer evening barbeques above the water.

Celebrating over an acre of clifftop land in Takapuna, the colossal grounds and multiple titles offer a variety of opportunities from keeping the existing dwellings to treating it as a “green-fields” development with a wide variety of options.   This genuinely is a once in a lifetime opportunity.
