Enjoy private, resort-style living at this Greenhithe property for sale

Located at the tip of Marae Road’s picturesque peninsula, the privileged position of this property captures dazzling bush, water and city views from every angle. The owners have lived here for the past 35 years, seamlessly expanding the original ‘60s residence overtime to grow with their family. They’ve created a luxurious, spacious and stylish retreat, designed to exist in perfect harmony with the natural landscape.

The lifestyle is a special one, relishing a true connection with the water and 1119m2 native bush setting. Old Greenhithe is a much-loved and highly sought-after location for families, with Marae Road enjoying an exceptional coastal aspect. The village shops and eateries are close by, along with the Lucas Creek boat ramp, the Pony Club for horse lovers, as well as parks, reserves, sports grounds and excellent local schools.

The property is located at the very end of Marae Road’s cul-de-sac, tucked beneath the street and suspended within the treetops. Block, iron and cedar construction blends seamlessly within its native setting, with a well-designed, generous floorplan creating many restful spaces to relax, entertain and enjoy.

The front entrance opens into a wide, open central area, where an elegant and tasteful interior design theme creates the perfect subtle backdrop for the eye-catching outlook.

The formal lounge has a wood fire, deep window seat and opens out to a private deck and beautifully landscaped gardens. Views must be seen to be believed – an ever-changing spectacle encompassing boats bobbing in the bay, the Upper Harbour Bridge, Hobsonville Point, the Waitakeres and all the way down the harbour to the city.

The central terrace has a glass balustrade to ensure the outlook remains uninterrupted, with a big bifold window creating excellent connection with the kitchen. This designer hub will impress chefs, with its central breakfast island and generous butler’s pantry.

Double doors open into the recreation wing, featuring warm timber sarked ceilings, large picture windows and its own bathroom. The area is big enough for a pool table and large lounge suite and opens out through bifolds to the sun-drenched, north-facing swimming pool complex. Feature water fountains create a soothing soundtrack and an expansive terrace sets the scene for wonderful summer entertaining.

All the accommodation is located upstairs, with the lavish master retreat enjoying its own walk-in wardrobe, ensuite and office/ nursery. Three of the four bedrooms up here enjoy their own decks.

This uniquely wonderful dream home is located within its own picturesque, private and truly privileged microclimate. It celebrates a truly unique and captivating promontory position and one of the best views in Greenhithe.
