This rare holding is your chance to secure a large parcel of prime New Zealand coastline, just across the harbour from Auckland City, superbly situated, on absolute clifftop, in one of Birkenhead Point's most desirable streets. From the very entry to the home your eye is drawn across glowing polished floors that resemble a ship's deck, to a view across the sparking waters of the Waitemata. On the wraparound deck you see, breathe and feel part of the water as you scan from the city scape to the landmark Chelsea sugar refinery across the bay. The refinery site was chosen for its deep waters which have allowed the sugar to be delivered from tropical cane fields for over 125 years. This is a home built for the location. Spacious, open plan living sees the reception room blend into the formal lounge which blends into the family room, all opening to that sun-drenched deck, looking straight to the West setting sun. There's an ideal office hideaway on the mezzanine level, while downstairs, the master suite includes a bathroom, a walk-in wardrobe, a breakfast deck and a quiet glass atrium reading area to complete this adult retreat. There are three more bedrooms, a spacious family bathroom and a wine cellar waiting to be filled. Close to local amenities and walking distance to the Birkenhead ferry for the City commuter. Over 1,100 sqm of land, framed by bush, runs down to the boundary, but the jewel in the crown is the view. Never tire of the ever-changing activity on the water, the yachts on the wind, fisher folk on the catch and the sugar ship at the refinery.
They say that when your boat comes in, one's future is assured. Don't let this opportunity sail by.
A substantial cliff top home is truly a rare find, will you be the lucky one to secure and enjoy this piece of absolute waterfront ownership?
Priority viewing essential through open homes or by appointment. To be sold at auction by absentee vendor if not prior.
