Lux­ury liv­ing with no ex­pense spared

Southern Real Estate Guide - - Southern Homes -

Fea­tured promi­nently on just un­der one acre of flat, man­i­cured land is a mag­nif­i­cent home that will ful­fil even the high­est ex­pec­ta­tions.

With more than its fair share of out­stand­ing char­ac­ter­is­tics, the prop­erty’s lo­ca­tion high up on the Bom­bay Hills pro­vides it with a mag­nif­i­cent view that stretches as far as the Manukau har­bour and Ran­gi­toto.

Solidly built five years ago out of plas­tered brick, there has cer­tainly been no ex­pense spared on the house’s build with macro­carpa ceil­ings, rimu in­ter­nal doors and so­lar pan­elled hot water.

Pol­ished kwila floor­ing is fea­tured through­out the en­tire lower floor, with the ex­cep­tion of the four dou­ble bed­rooms, of­fice and two main liv­ing ar­eas which have with soft, lux­u­ri­ous car­pets.

The main liv­ing sec­tor of the house is al­lo­cated com­pletely to the lower level. With two sep­a­rate wings both con­tain­ing their own lounge and deck ar­eas, the house’s de­sign is ideal for fam­ily’s with teenagers who want their own space.

With an en­tirely open flow de­sign, the two sep­a­rate liv­ing area’s are sep­a­rated by a large kitchen fit­ted with a mix­ture of stain­less steel and stun­ning Bisazza stone bench tops, and a fully shelved walk-in pantry.

The sec­ond liv­ing area also acts as a for­mal lounge and din­ing room. Closed off by dou­ble slid­ers, the space is cosy and fam­ily-ori­ented, fit- ted with an open fire­place.

Alu­minium french doors open from the kitchen and liv­ing ar­eas onto a large kwila deck with a heated salt­wa­ter swim­ming pool and out­door en­ter­tain­ment area which is fit­ted with sur­round sound. The out­door deck ex­tends to a spa­cious back­yard with per­fectly man­i­cured grass, ideal for the kids to run around in sum­mer time and safely bor­dered by a tall glass bal­cony so as not to dis­turb the mag­nif­i­cent view.

The up­stairs of the house is a large loft area fit­ted with pull down Velux win­dows to al­low plenty of air­flow and two dou­ble cup­boards at each side. The room could be used as a kid’s gam­ing area, home the­atre, work room or even a self con­tained bed­room.

The sec­ond de­tached dou­ble garage, which is sup­ple­men­tary to the at­tached three car garage, matches the house’s de­sign and features an en­closed toi­let and hand basin, power and loads of stor­age as well as its own loft.

Only a short three minute drive to the mo­tor­way and Bom­bay ser­vice cen­tre, and only 30 min­utes to Auck­land City at off peak traf­fic times, the house en­joys the ben­e­fits of coun­try liv­ing with bonus as­pects of city life.

Sit and stare: The out­door din­ing area pro­vides a stun­ning view that stretches as far as Ran­gi­toto.

High ceil­ings: The main liv­ing area is light and airy with high ceil­ings and open ac­cess be­tween rooms.
