Enjoy panoramic city views from this waterfront home in Bayswater

This brick and cedar waterfront estate showcases incredible and ever-changing panoramic views spanning a colossal 1467m2 of perfectly flat land on the Bayswater peninsula.

Number 5 is located at the farthest end of the peaceful, picturesque neighbourhood, just a short walk from the ferry. This service, coupled with the beautiful scenery, evokes feelings of living on an island. Home is a true sanctuary, but the CBD is just a short journey away, as are the local schools and busy townships of Takapuna and Devonport.

The property is protected from the road by wrought iron gates, which open into the well-established grounds and gardens at the front of the site. The fact that the residence is positioned so far back from the road means there are vast amounts of off-street parking, along with enough space to craft a minor dwelling if required.

The current owner has lived here for the past 18 years and raised her children here. All have cherished the large scale family celebrations their home has had the proportions to accommodate over the years, including weddings, birthdays, anniversaries and memorable pool parties. It’s the ideal home for large, growing and extended families, with significant space inside and out accommodating everyone with ease.

Crafted in the 70s, the solid brick and block residence boasts the significant scale and dimensions synonymous with the era. It’s been stylishly modernised over time, with a profusion of glass maximising the dazzling view on the seaward-side.  A sweeping curved staircase arrives from the entry foyer up to the top floor, where the outlook is immediately on display.

The spectacle encompasses Auckland’s iconic landmarks and an intoxicating vista of land, sea and sky. It’s alive with movement from sunrise ‘til sunset, with the constant activity on the Auckland Ports, boats, yachts, cruise ships and passenger ferries splicing through the harbour, early morning rowers, the lights of the city coming to life at night and regular fireworks displays. The outlook spans the Auckland city skyline and America’s Cup base, Ngataringa Bay, North Head and Mount Victoria.

The key living, dining and kitchen space extends along the front of the house. The kitchen is new and sleek, with lots of storage, stone bench tops, a wine fridge and two breakfast bars. On the other side of the house, another lounge/ office has a stone open fire and flows out to another deck. This area was created with a mid-century Hawaiian aesthetic in mind, with movable wooden shutters and a grapevine-covered pergola overhead.

There are three bedrooms located on this level, with the master enjoying its own ensuite and chic white shutters. One bedroom downstairs is still fully immersed in the sea view, opening out to the vast platform of lawn that extends to the cliff edge. The cliff was reinforced in a large-scale project in conjunction with the council, which lends excellent peace of mind. On the other side, another bedroom offers a semi-self-contained living environment, with its own galley kitchenette, lounge area and outdoor access. This side of the house presents an expansive entertaining terrace, spa and tropically-themed in-ground swimming pool complex.

Along with abundant storage and large separate laundry, the ground floor also offers internal access to the triple garage and sound-proofed music room.

This is a truly rare and unique piece of large waterfront land, which showcases a visual symphony of views.
