This modern Hatfields Beach home has the most incredible views

This spectacular 1128m2 coastal retreat is located on Hillcrest Road, the elevated ridge that straddles Orewa and Hatfields Beach. Reimagined and rebuilt by the current owners three years ago, it showcases a stylish, spacious living environment and views that must be seen to be believed.

The transformation took the original 1950s red brick home to the contemporary residence seen today, expanding the footprint from 150m2 to 285m2. The vision was to create classic, light-filled spaces designed for seamless family living and entertaining, as well as showcasing the dazzling panorama on both sides. From the front of the house, the north-west aspect captures rural views, overlooking rolling hills, farmland and the greenbelt separating Hatfields Beach and Waiwera. A full wall of glass at the rear of the home frames the cinematic south-easterly view, straight down the length of Orewa beach, across to Red Beach, Stanmore Bay and the tip of the Whangaparaoa peninsula, across to Rangitoto in the distance, Millwater and Silverdale. The full landscape of land, sea and sky is on display and is as captivating by day as by night.

The local area is friendly and relaxed, a great community that offers excellent schools and access to Orewa’s buzzing café, bar and restaurant scene. Hatfield’s is a popular and picturesque golden bay that boats can be launched from, while Orewa’s vast stretch of sand is the perfect place to walk in the morning and while away summer days. For North Shore and CBD workers, motorway onramps are close by, along with the handy bus service.

The floorplan sees a voluminous central living, dining and kitchen space flanked either side with hidden accommodation wings. This vast, elongated space is illuminated with light from the walls of glass at either end and complemented with American Oak flooring and fresh white walls. The interior design is another element that sets the residence apart from the rest, with the perfect balance of finishes, fittings and textures bringing the inside to life.

The chef’s kitchen has a large breakfast island and wine fridge, while a feature gas fireplace warms the room in winter. Friends and family can spill out to the generous rear deck, which has glass balustrades ensuring the outlook remians uninterrupted. The land below was retained to create platforms of flat lawn for kids to play on and useable, easy-care landscaped grounds. As sun floods the front area all day, plans have been designed and consented for a swimming pool complex, which only needs the green light from the new owner to be ready for the summer.

Back inside, a barn-style sliding door access one of the accommodation wings, where two double bedrooms (all have wardrobe systems) are serviced by the exquisitely tiled family bathroom and freestanding bath. The master retreat has a luxurious ensuite and walk-in wardrobe, as well as enjoying the wonderful sea views and access to the deck. Across the other side, the other accommodation wing has two more bedrooms (one is currently set up as a kids’ playroom) plus a guest toilet. There’s also a separate laundry on this side of the home and internal access to the double garage. Warm and carpeted, this expansive space also doubles as a rumpus when required.

This stunning renovation celebrates perfection in both construction and aesthetics and presents a sensational family lifestyle by the sea.
