House for Sale
Every Day is a Day at the Beach
Property ID DVP20052A genuinely beachfront property on Takapuna Beach hardly ever comes up for sale, and the current owners have spent 15 happy years living in this remarkable home. Life really is a beach if you live here. For a start, you can drive your Sealegs straight up out of the water, between two graceful pohutukawa trees and into your own basement boatyard'. Sea, sand, sun and the ocean set the theme of this distinctive house. From the moment you walk through the door into the open plan kitchen/living and dining area you get a sense how special this place is. You get all the views, while no-one has a view of you - mirrored windows throughout maintain your privacy while enhancing your outlook. That outlook extends over three spacious floors, each linked by a staircase that's been specially designed to reference the feel of an ocean liner. On the first floor you'll find an open landing where you can relax in a tranquil library space. The balcony on this level gives you another chance to relax and drink in those panoramic views. They span from Rangitoto on your right across to Little Barrier and Tiritiri Matangi and further round. Up the stairway or elevator to the top floor and you find what is now an artist's studio. It could just as easily become an office or whatever suits your lifestyle. On a more relaxing note, you can lounge around the heated pool on the private terrace whenever you like, or stroll along the beach and enjoy brunch at the Takapuna Beach Caf, then make use of everything Takapuna itself has to offer. This location isn't just about the beach either. Being close to Hauraki Corner you have shops, the medical centre and restaurants just up the road. And having a set of traffic lights at the end of Hauraki Road means you'll never have any problems getting out onto the main road. Very handy if you're dropping the children off at Jutland Road Primary or Takapuna grammar nearby. You really do have to see this place for yourself to truly understand everything it has to offer.
