The views from this Stanley Point home will make you want to buy

Built to showcase grandstand visions of the Waitemata Harbour, Auckland city and Ngataringa Bay, the smart brick and cedar residence at 79a Stanley Point Road has been recently renovated from top to toe.

The seaward side of Stanley Point is a special and unique Auckland location. Devonport’s eclectic blend of cafes, restaurants and shops are close by, along with the host of wonderful bays, beaches and reserves of the area. The ferry from Stanley Point wharf also offers a very civilised 12-minute commute to the city for work and play.

With the last enhancements to the residence undertaken during the 1980s, the current owners’ vision was to update the property both aesthetically and functionally. They spent time living there before beginning the process, ascertaining what needed to be done to create the smart and stylish, reinvigorated living environment seen today.

The home has been completely re-jibbed and reinsulated, every window exchanged for double glazing and all the aluminium joinery replaced – giving the new owner excellent peace of mind. Both decks have new timber as well as the addition of glass balustrades to leave the dazzling views uninterrupted.

Spread across three generous levels, interiors feature brand new paint, carpets, Rimu floors and LED lighting throughout, warmed by gas central heating and a gas fireplace. Almost the entire rear wall of the main lounge, dining and kitchen room on level two is made of glass, where large floor to ceiling sliding doors frame the incredible and ever-changing outlook. It’s alive with activity both day and night, with a different perspective captured every moment. Watch the sea change colour due to weather, the activity on the ports, cruise ships docking and the stunning city lights igniting at dusk. The new open-plan kitchen boasts Miele appliances and stone bench tops.

There are two bedrooms and a bathroom on this level, as well as a separate living area that opens out to another perfectly north-facing deck with wonderful views. Upstairs, there’s another double bedroom, as well as the decadent master retreat with luxurious ensuite, living area and balcony.

The ground floor comprises a rumpus room and office with alternative access, plus the bonus of an internally-accessed double garage – an anomaly for Devonport. There’s also space for another four cars to be parked off-street.

Expertly updated for lock-up-and-leave luxury and low-maintenance living, this Stanley Point property presents stylish surroundings and some of Auckland’s best views.
