Celebrating an exclusive position on one of Lake Pupuke’s most sought-after streets, this spacious family residence has been crafted to showcase perfectly north-facing visions of the lake. On the market for the first time in 35 years, the 832m2 site at 2 Manurere Ave has its own jetty and sits within a tranquil, peaceful and protected microclimate.
While this private pocket on the water is serene and quiet, and in arguably the best position of the neighbourhood, the heart of vibrant Takapuna and its beautiful beach are just a five-minute walk from home. An easy stroll up and over the hill arrives at the huge array of cafes, bars, boutiques and restaurants, along with the cinema and Bruce Mason Centre. There are a choice of two motorway onramps for commuters, along with zoning for Takapuna Primary, Westlake Girls, Takapuna Normal and Takapuna Grammar.
The private compound is tucked discreetly behind the double garage and roadside entrance, with the tropical, resort-style swimming pool complex hidden behind the front gate. Wooden decking and steps arrive down to the paved front entrance. Inside, the layout and proportions lend themselves to wonderful family living and entertaining, with the home expertly expanded and renovated over the years.
Across a series of split levels built into the site, spellbinding, ever-changing lake views are captured from all principal rooms, which flow out to decks with glass balustrades leaving the outlook uninterrupted. Wide steps lead down to the voluminous, open-plan lounge and dining, which has high ceilings and is warmed in winter by the open fire. The gourmet kitchen has polished wood floors, stone benches and a breakfast bar, plus an induction cooktop and abundant storage.
Along with a study, the spacious and luxurious master suite is the only bedroom upstairs. The generous retreat has a walk-in wardrobe, office and large bathroom with outdoor access poolside. Downstairs, the rooms on the lower levels are still immersed in the view, with separation and outdoor access ideal for teenagers – a rumpus, three more bedrooms and a bathroom.
Grounds are in their own microclimate thanks to the aspect and protection from the prevailing wind. Subtropical plantings include bananas and citrus trees, along with raised bed vegetable patches. Landscaped, tiered gardens provide incredibly easy access down to the large jetty, perfect for swimming and launching kayaks and paddleboards from.
This exceptional property presents a coveted lakefront lifestyle in the heart of Takapuna, perfect for families who love to entertain.
