Immaculate presentation and spacious, contemporary style make this Kowhai Road property an incredibly appealing prospect for summer. The current owners bought it new in 2011 and have loved the free-flowing layout of the residence and fantastic central location.

The two-level, weatherboard home is located on a freehold site, directly across the road from the Pupuke Golf Course. This, coupled with the walking tracks and tennis club in Centennial Park, make it a fantastic neighbourhood for those with a passion for the outdoors. Mairangi Bay’s beach and village are also just a 10-minute walk from home, via the handy walkway.  The sought-after street is zoned for exceptional North Shore Schools, including Rangitoto College, Westlake Girls and Boys High Schools, Campbells Bay School, Mairangi Bay Primary and Murrays Bay Intermediate. The very central location also has easy access to the motorway to the CBD, as well as Takapuna, Milford and Albany.

A major prerequisite for the owners was to find a lock-up-and-leave property with easy care grounds – number 131 Kowhai Road ticked the boxes. Its elevated position and north-east aspect also showcases expansive views of the Hauraki Gulf, while flooding the high-stud rooms with light and sun all day. Interiors have been designed to be modern and stylish, with a towering concrete block feature wall in the double height entry foyer. Light American Oak floors and a fresh white wall palette are illuminated with light from the numerous sets of bifold doors and windows on the ground floor. The entire level is dedicated to living and entertaining, with the open-plan kitchen, dining and living area the hub of the home. The custom-designed kitchen has a large waterfall-style island, stainless steel and light granite benches, high-quality appliances and a butler’s pantry.

This area flows out to the spacious entertaining deck, which, covered by a Louvretec canopy, make it an extension of the inside and another room during summer. Flat Tiger Turf lawns are framed with simplistic, easy-care plantings, with very minimal maintenance required.

As well as the separate laundry and powder room, there’s another large lounge on the ground floor, which can be closed off via double doors. It has a gas fireplace for cosy winter evenings, plus opens out to a private courtyard garden on the other side of the house.

A wide staircase arrives at the top level, where a third lounge creates even more separation for families. The master retreat is on one side, with a walk-in wardrobe and luxurious ensuite with bath. The spacious bedroom captures the best views of the house, across the water and to the islands of the Gulf, as well as over the lush green golf course. The three remaining bedrooms all enjoy their own special outlook and good-sized double wardrobes One has its own ensuite, while the other two are serviced by the tiled family bathroom.

All the features of a modern build make life comfortable and easy – abundant storage, double glazing, underfloor heating, central vac and an oversized, carpeted double garage. What makes it even more appealing is the impeccable standard of maintenance that has been undertaken by the owners, both inside and out, over the past eight years.

This exceptionally stylish, spacious residence is located in one of the North Shore’s most coveted and central locations.
