This dazzling architectural masterpiece enjoys a prime position in one of the country’s most esteemed neighbourhoods, Clifton Road. Number 2a is located just an easy walk down the prestigious waterfront street to Takapuna beach, or there is direct beach access across the road to St Leonards beach.

The spectacular residence was constructed with passion and precision – brought to life by renowned Synergy Homes. Architects from archoffice Ponsonby designed the residence as “a collection of rooms organised as a series of stacked, box-like forms.” The interior fitout’s white on white is enhanced with subtle nuances of texture and tone to create an ultra-contemporary yet inviting aesthetic.

Takapuna’s restaurants, cafes, shops and nightlife are just a pleasant beachfront stroll away, with the local Hauraki Corner stores 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 the Bayswater, Stanley Point or Devonport wharves regularly.

Positioned behind an electric security gate, the residence is surprisingly substantial, spanning 420m2 and presenting five bedrooms, four bathrooms and three spacious lounges. Crafted from brick and cedar, it was built by the owner of Synergy Homes for himself, a good indication of the exemplary quality and attention to detail guaranteed inside and out.

The entrance foyer evokes pure drama, extending to the rear of the home with an eight-metre ceiling, glass mezzanine bridge and feature woven light fittings. Dark oiled hardwood floors and floating staircase are complemented with light sandstone tiles on the solid wall.  Vast white wall spaces create the perfect gallery for bold artworks, with light streaming in from all angles via numerous skylights, windows and doors.

Designed for seamless family living and grand entertaining, the key living, dining and kitchen space is a voluminous, elongated room. It opens out at several junctures to the private terrace with outdoor fireplace, and heated swimming pool and spa area. The chef’s kitchen is at the heart of the space, with a thick marble waterfall island, a breakfast bar, high-quality appliances and abundant storage. At the very end, the cosy lounge is warmed in winter by the large gas fireplace.

There is a bathroom and one bedroom, currently utilised as an office, located on the ground floor, with the remaining accommodation, lounge, family bathroom and two ensuites located upstairs.  The decadent master is a true retreat, with its own luxurious bathroom and dressing room, as well as showcasing spectacular views of the Hauraki Gulf and Rangitoto.

The perfectly flat 760m2 site is enveloped with a striking landscaped design concept – lush, largely tropical plantings and manicured hedges creating privacy as well as ambiance. There is off-street parking available in front of the double internally-accessed garage.

This Takapuna masterpiece epitomises contemporary design and luxury by the sea.
