Not only does this spacious sub-penthouse capture some of the best views of Takapuna beach, it presents a truly incredible, connected, coastal lifestyle. Boasting three double bedrooms and two bathrooms across one 162m2 level, the spacious floorplan will suit discerning buyers who seek the freedom and convenience of apartment living in the iconic Mon Desir complex.

Living in the exclusive resort-style development at 173 Hurstmere Road really is like being on holiday all-year-round. Tropical plantings, fountains and rock gardens line the pathways of the immaculately-maintained grounds. Security gates provide access into the private compound – a collection of towers, vast flat lawn and swimming pool that embrace Takapuna beach. A gate leads directly down to the golden sweep of sand and safe swimming bay, the perfect place for morning walks, summer dips and stand-up paddle boarding.

Takapuna’s vibrant township is ever-evolving and a true pleasure to live in. Its vast selection of cafes, bars and restaurants are mere steps from home, providing a morning coffee pit stop, long lunch destinations and an array of international cuisine for dinner. Also just a stone’s throw from the front gate are boutique and mall shopping, the theatre and cinema for entertainment, plus the beach boat ramp, tennis club, Lake Pupuke and the public swimming pool for recreation.

Number 5D is located on the sixth floor, accessed via a smart entrance lobby and lift. An entry hall introduces the residence, a light, bright, warm and beautifully-finished living environment. The generous kitchen, lounge and dining space is open-plan, capturing the cinematic view from every angle. The elevation affords a truly panoramic and ever-changing outlook, extending the entire length of the beach, across to Rangitoto, St Heliers and Howick in the distance. The tiled balcony is curved, creating a sheltered alfresco space to entertain and watch the world go by.

The master suite is spacious, with a private balcony and enough room for a sitting area. It also boasts a walk-in wardrobe and luxurious ensuite with two sinks. The other two double bedrooms are located down the hallway, serviced by the powder room and main bathroom with bath. The size and layout of the rooms create flexibility for use as a media room, second lounge or office.

Residents enjoy exclusive use of the on-site gymnasium and sauna and apartment 5D is allocated two parallel basement carparks and a large storage space. The on-site building manager also assures peace of mind.

Presenting space, security, comfort and convenience, this luxurious Takapuna property is the pinnacle of apartment living.
