The iconic Vipond Road ridge in Stanmore Bay is home to many spectacular properties, all showcasing dazzling views over the Hauraki Gulf. Number 196 is a sterling example – a recently renovated, five-bedroom, seaward-side masterpiece on 840m2 of land.

With a holiday-like atmosphere all-year-round, the picturesque neighbourhood is just an easy walk from the beach, as well as the local shops, cafes, leisure centre, public transport and schools. Located at the start of the Peninsula, Stanmore Bay is also in handy proximity to Orewa, Silverdale and the motorway onramp, making life easier for CBD commuters.

The property is set back from the road, protected by an electric security gate. This opens into the private compound, where three cars can be parked off-street, as well as in the double internal garage. Inside, the refurbishment has been undertaken with care and an expert eye, with high-quality finishes, fixtures and appliances found throughout. The home is illuminated with a wonderful sense of light and a Scandinavian-style interior palette sees solid American Oak floors complementing a white colour scheme. This bright yet neutral design ensures the deep blue of the sea takes centre-stage, with the outlook visible from most principal rooms.

A grand, open entrance foyer sets the scene for the dramatic floorplan to follow, where significant proportions across two levels makes for fantastic family living. The chef’s kitchen has polished stainless steel benches and Fisher & Paykel appliances, while a wall of doors in the key living and dining space flows out to the entertaining decks with glass balustrades.

Capturing a dazzling vista that spans from the Mahurangi Harbour in the north to the headlands of Army Bay to the south, the incredible position above the bay is close enough to see the waves breaking on the shore, yet elevated enough to capture a good sense of privacy and panoramic views. A louvred canopy and outdoor fire make this alfresco space ideal for all-season entertaining, with steps leading down to the heated swimming pool complex on the lower level.

There are three bedrooms located on the ground floor, serviced by two beautifully-finished, tiled bathrooms. A sweeping staircase arrives upstairs, where the decadent master suite opens out to a terrace enjoying magical sunrises and the best vantage point of the house. The room also boasts its own luxurious ensuite and generous walk-in wardrobe. There’s another smaller bedroom next door that also opens out to the balcony – it’d make an ideal nursery or home office.  Excellent use of space also sees an elongated, sky-lit located room up here, a perfect additional living space for teenagers or media room.

This spacious, stylish family retreat showcases a kaleidoscope of views and epitomises coastal living at its consummate best.
