Not only does it offer you views to Bayswater marina and the harbor bridge, this house combines the best of the land and the sea. You could float off on holiday in your yacht from the end of the garden, as the current owners have done many times. You can walk across the beaches any day of the week and hope to spot dotterels, stilts, Caspian terns and spoonbills if you like. Riparian rights are yours. This house is designed and built by renowned boat builder, John Senior. Not surprisingly everything in it fits perfectly. And the stunning matai flooring couldn't have been put together by anyone who didn't have an eye for precision. The home you can enjoy here has everything a family could ask for: Bayswater Primary school is within walking distance; Takapuna Grammar is close enough for the kids to walk or cycle to easily. Plus, you have the choice of two regular ferries to the city from Bayswater and Devonport. This is a very special house. You have to stand in the upstairs living area to really appreciate its charm and outlook. You need to think about how much you'd enjoy the simple, cleverly designed, marine-ply fitted kitchen. It has two outside decks that make the most of its coastal location. The upper one runs off the family room and makes a great place to entertain. Equally, the lower deck is covered and forms an attractive outdoor lounge looking over the garden. Speaking of which, we think that's a little paradise. It faces nor'-nor'-west, so it gets all day sun and beautiful sunsets. Cabbage trees frame the views. A fruiting olive tree sits quietly by. A Queensland Frangipani is a special feature, and there's no better place to sit with a glass of wine and watch the sun go down than under the Pohutukawas. It's really hard to believe you are anywhere near the biggest city in the country in this warm, cosy and sheltered spot. Come and see for yourself. We love this place and we will be very happy to show you round.
