This smart Stanley Point home enjoys breathtaking sea and city views

Number 77A Stanley Point Road was originally built in the 1950s as one of the more modest homes on the street. Since then it’s been reimagined, renovated and extended by renowned local architect Bruce Macfarlane, who has imparted his signature style to the now expansive, four-bedroom family residence. The most recent enhancements have also been undertaken with the assistance of an interior designer, who has created a stylish, luxurious ambiance in this warm and inviting, character-filled home.

The seaward-side tip of Stanley Point is a special and unique Auckland location, with number 77A very close to the end of the no-exit street. As well as capturing dramatic views from its prestigious peninsula, the neighbourhood is renowned for its elegance, heritage charm and boutique environment. Along with Secret Cove, there are many small swimming bays favoured by locals in the know, along with the Cyril Bassett VC lookout for a wonderful view of the city, and Blair Park just footsteps away. Blair Park has all-tide direct water access, so is ideal for launching paddleboards and kayaks, plus has boat lockers available for on-site storage. Devonport’s many cafes, restaurants and shops are a short drive away, along with the host of wonderful bays, beaches and reserves of the area. The ferry from Stanley Point wharf also offers a very civilised 15-minute commute to the city for work and play.

The smart concrete and weatherboard home has a sweeping curved frontage, a design feature also seen on the upper decks. The unique layout sees the more original part of the home’s living and dining areas located at the front, with the deceptively spacious, two-level accommodation area located at the rear.

Inside, the lounge and dining spaces both flow out to expansive entertaining decks, which have been created to maximise the perfect north-westerly aspect. The elevated views extend out over the Harbour Bridge and Westhaven Marina and alight with glorious sunsets over the Waitakeres in the evening. It’s the perfect vantage point for upcoming America’s Cup action as well as all the city fireworks displays.

As well as an aesthetic enhancement, the residence has been brought into the modern day with an extensive list of contemporary features throughout and a brand new chef’s kitchen. This overlooks the casual living space and boasts a breakfast island, retractable air–expeller, walk-in pantry and top-of-the-line appliances.

All four bedrooms throughout have outdoor access, with two of the three downstairs opening out to the rear garden and the other to the front deck. The fully-fenced rear area has been professionally landscaped to offer flat lawns and easy-care plantings, as well as fruit trees and vege gardens. There’s a good amount of storage on this level also, as well as the main bathroom.

A central open staircase arrives up to the top level, which is dedicated solely to the master retreat. The bedroom has a spacious private deck that enjoys expansive, multi-faceted views and there are two separate wardrobes up here, as well as the gorgeous tiled ensuite with bath.

This captivating home offers a flexible layout that suits those at all stages of life. It’s also located in one of Auckland’s best kept secret locations – picturesque, peaceful, private and tranquil, and just a quick ferry ride from the city.
