These brand-new apartments in Browns Bay are luxury living at its best

Set to become Browns Bay’s newest lifestyle destination, Kauri Residences is an innovative five-level tower comprised of 53 apartments and five breathtaking penthouses. The landmark building is located just 300 steps from the beach on Anzac Road, on the fringe of the vibrant coastal village.

The site has a special significance to the local area – it’s formerly home to the Brown family homestead, the first house built in Browns Bay in 1876. The original humble dwelling, constructed of native Kauri weatherboards, is echoed in the choice of materials for the new development. Award-winning Matz Architects have created a modern yet beachy and relaxed aesthetic, utilising natural timber widely throughout the building.

With its coveted position so close to the beach and village, residents will have the ideal combination of lifestyle and convenience living at Kauri Residences. The local shops and amenities are just a short level stroll from home, along with the many cafes, restaurants and bars and two supermarkets.

There are four retails stores planned for the ground floor, with the building crafted from trusted materials designed to withstand the coastal conditions. Planting throughout the building brings vibrancy and softens the industrial look and includes a lattice of winding vines strung through the rear courtyard, which creates a lush green outlook from the rear of the apartments. The elevation of the structure means that residences on the northern and eastern sides will enjoy spectacular sea views.

Kauri Residences has been thoughtfully designed with the environment, energy-efficiency and wellbeing of residents front of mind, with a choice of one, two and three-bedroom variants available. Generous 2.6m ceilings in main living areas and expansive use of glass create light, bright and high-quality contemporary living environments, and all enjoy their own deck. Designer kitchens have Corian benchtops and Fisher & Paykel appliances, plus Italian tapware and engineered oak flooring.

30 per cent of the building is already sold, a testament to the level of interest and confidence in the project. In fact, one of the buyers is Martin Cooper, Managing Director of Harcourts Cooper & Co Real Estate and North Shore property guru, who recognised the special location, lifestyle and innovative, high-quality design on offer. Resource consent has been issued, site works are due to begin in the second quarter of 2020, and residents are expected to move in before Christmas 2021.

Whether it’s downsizers who aren’t ready for a retirement village, first home buyers who wish to enjoy the incredible coastal lifestyle, savvy investors or bach owners looking for a Browns Bay bolthole, these designer homes epitomise the fun, flexibility and freedom of brand-new apartment living.
