Enjoy a designer lock-up-and-leave in the heart of Takapuna

Completely reimagined and rebuilt last year, this stylish Takapuna property is crafted to the latest exemplary standards and codes. No expense was spared when designing the renovation, with the vision to create a stylish, contemporary home that was maintenance-free. This affords the owners the incredible freedom of a lock-up-and leave property with no body corporate fees, right at the heart of Takapuna.

Located at the top of Bracken Avenue, the neighbourhood offers a true walking lifestyle – just a flat, easy stroll straight out the front door into the coveted coastal village and its golden beach. There’s an enormous selection of cafes, bars and restaurants to choose from, along with plentiful boutique and mall shopping. Lovers of the outdoors will appreciate Takapuna’s sweep of sand and safe swimming bay that’s popular and picturesque all-year-round, as well as both the bowls and tennis clubs close by. Public transport couldn’t be easier and the motorway onramp is just around the corner.

This is a project that’s been designed for aesthetics as much as function, with striking aluminium detail and light, vertical cedar weatherboard creating a dramatic exterior impact. The gated carport fits two cars or a boat, which is in addition to the internally-accessed double garage.

Interiors have been considered to the same meticulous standard, with finishes and appointments thoughtfully selected to create a comfortable, contemporary living environment. Incredibly soft, light grey carpets underfoot are offset by a bright white wall palette and dark aluminium shutters throughout.

Entry level is on the ground floor, home to three bedrooms or two plus an office. One has its own ensuite and garden access so makes the ideal guest room. The other two rooms are serviced by the main bathroom, which has a large freestanding bath.

Upstairs, the living, dining and kitchen space is open plan, enhanced by the eye-catching aluminium detailing on the windows. It’s incredibly private, with glass stackers opening out to the north-facing spa deck. A long piece of Statuario marble creates a shelf and hearth for the feature gas fireplace, which runs the length of the room. A thick slab of the same marble has also been used to create the waterfall-style bench in the gourmet kitchen, which boasts Miele appliances. The decadent master retreat is brand new, where two separate walk-in wardrobes share the opulent ensuite with feature mosaic tiles, matte black tapware and Velux skylight windows.

A host of up-to-the-minute features ensure the utmost comfort and convenience, including an HRV system, ducted air conditioning, electric blinds and underfloor heating in the bathroom and entranceway, plus a guest powder room on the top floor. Outside at the rear, the fully fenced, low-maintenance courtyard garden has the same cedar fencing and dark aluminium feature, plus has a perfectly flat Tiger Turf lawn.

There’s absolutely nothing to do but move in, unpack and relax in this stunningly rebuilt Takapuna sanctuary.
