Architectural masterpiece in Albany – perfection to a tee

18 Lucas Creek View Way presents a triumphant and truly rare synergy of location, luxury, lifestyle and leisure. The unique property directly borders the North Shore Golf Course – part of the exclusive, boutique Third Fairway development in Albany. Renowned local architect Alan Shanahan has designed a brand-new residence befitting the incredible location, a three-level, six-bedroom contemporary masterpiece that will appeal to discerning buyers.

Tucked away in a quiet part at the end of The Oaks in Albany, Third Fairway won’t just appeal to passionate golfers, but those who appreciate a truly unique aspect and environment. Upon arriving at the entrance and driving down the native-bush lined driveway, it’s clear this gated community offers something special. Number 18 is one of, if not the, best of the development – embracing the golf course and enjoying wonderful views across its park-like grounds.

The location is close to a selection of the North Shore’s best shopping and educational facilities. It’s zoned for Upper Harbour Primary School and Albany Junior and Senior High Schools, which are all decile 10. Private Kristin and Pinehurst are also both within easy walking distance, along with Massey University. Westfield Albany offers a large range of shopping, restaurants and a cinema, along with the QBE Stadium and Albany Tennis Park for sport enthusiasts. Access to the Auckland Motorway is only a few minutes away with on-ramps to the north and south, plus the Albany Park and Ride is also a highly convenient option for commuters.

The 389m2, masonry and cedar weatherboard residence has just been completed and is built to showcase the lush green views, light and sun. It’s been designed to offer the best of the best, with up-to-the-minute features and appliances and premium fittings and finishes sourced both locally and from around the world. Opulent yet very liveable interiors showcase a Scandinavian-style palette, with white, soft grey and timber accents throughout, high ceilings and blonded Oak floors.

The key living areas are located on the second floor, a voluminous space that can be divided into formal and family zones by a cavity slider. The chef’s kitchen has Miele appliances, including two ovens, an induction cook top, plus a gas cooktop that’s found in the generous butler’s pantry.

Walls of windows and stacking glass doors open out to the terrace, which has a remote-controlled louvered canopy for protection. The expansive deck then steps straight onto the golf course – it’s the enviable luxury of living on a private park that someone else fastidiously maintains.

Also on this level are three light-filled double bedrooms, serviced by the tiled family bathroom with freestanding bath. Upstairs on the top floor, a third living area could also double as a media room or large office. There are two bedrooms up here, both have walk-in wardrobes and ensuites, plus sliding windows that can be opened create a glass balcony. The master is the larger of the two and has a more significant wardrobe and a bath in the ensuite.

Located off the ground floor entry foyer, another large bedroom and ensuite makes the perfect accommodation for guests and extended family. Internal access to the carpeted double garage is also found down here.

As expected with a new build of this calibre its filled with ultra-modern inclusions that make life easy – ducted heating and air conditioning throughout, a surround sound system and speakers, security, and central vac to name a few.

This unique property and its spectacular location is a dream come true for many. It presents a spacious, functional and truly exquisite living environment.
