Paradise on the Point

Address | 24 Bridge View Road, Birkenhead Point

Open Homes | Saturday and Sunday 11.30am – 12.30pm

Auction | Saturday 4th April 2020 – 5.00pm. Onsite. (Unless Sold Prior)

This spectacular Birkenhead Point retreat showcases incomparable city and harbour views from its privileged position, with an outlook spanning from the Coromandel to Herne Bay. The current owners have lived here for the past 20 years and instantly fell in love with the magnificent outlook, as well as the property’s surprising proximity to the CBD. They’ve transformed the original ‘60s home with a major renovation, with the vision to modernise and open up the interior spaces, while maximising the views from every angle.

Bridge View Road’s exclusive cul-de-sac is tucked away – a peaceful, private enclave of prestigious homes. Despite the truly tranquil atmosphere, Hinemoa Street’s restaurants and cafes are a short walk away and the path that leads directly down to the ferry just next door to number 24.

Spanning a colossal 789m2, the property’s boundary, which separates it from the water’s edge, is reserve, so will never be built out. The grounds were just an overgrown bank when the owners arrived, but have been painstakingly planted into a lush, well-established tropical garden.

There’s off-street parking out front in the garage and pergola, with vertical white louvres on the exterior creating privacy as well as visual interest.  The big entrance hall flows into the voluminous and light-filled living, dining and kitchen space. The chef’s kitchen was designed to be functional and fabulous, with Miele appliances, a breakfast bar and large butler’s pantry with abundant shelving and soft-close drawers.  Large sliding glass doors open out to the deep deck that wraps around two sides, suspended over the bush and with glass balustrade to leave the outlook uninterrupted. The panoramic views extend out over the full living canvas of the Harbour Bridge and seascape, filled with cruise ships, sugar boats, ferries and yachts moored in the bay. It’s also the perfect vantage point for America’s Cup spectating. Majestic sunrises are visible every morning, while the sunset is reflected in the city buildings, turning them to gold. Another captivating element of the view is the fog that rolls in of a morning, then gradually dissipates throughout the day, first revealing the top of the Sky Tower, then the bridge and finally the water.

There is excellent storage, a bathroom and two bedrooms upstairs, including the master that has a walk-in wardrobe and ensuite. The expansive ground floor has the same footprint as upstairs, boasting two more bedrooms, a lounge, bathroom and separate laundry. It’s still very much immersed in the view and opens out to another expansive deck. This level has its own entrance and access, making it perfect as a home office, Air BnB or accommodation for extended family.

A wooden boardwalk runs through the garden, creating restful areas to sit and enjoy. It’s a calming retreat enveloped in nature and filled with birdlife, making it difficult to believe that Ponsonby is not even a 10-minute drive away.

Presiding over one of Birkenhead Point’s most spectacular views, this is a magnificent park-like paradise that’s well connected to the city.

Oneoneroa – Brand-new living in Belmont

The picturesque harbourside suburb of Belmont is home to Oneoneroa, the North Shore’s exciting new residential development.  This is Stage One of the project, with thirteen stylish townhouses built and ready to move in to in a couple of months, with three of those already sold. These modern freehold properties are architecturally-designed and constructed using high-quality materials, perfectly complementing the coastal landscape and exceptional lifestyle on offer.

Ngati Whatua Orakei Properties are spearheading the project, with Brewer Davidson Architects behind the captivating design. Families, first home buyers and investors will be enticed by the mix of two, three and four-bedroom layouts, designed with a HomeStar 6 rating for comfort and excellent peace of mind, plus the brand-new, top-of-the line fittings and appliances.

The local area is one that is coveted and highly-sought after by those at all stages of life, with Oneoneroa located at the heart of Belmont. A family friendly environment has been established and maintained by an engaged community, with numerous parks, beaches and walks nearby to promote a healthy, active lifestyle. Northboro Reserve is accessible directly from Rutherford Street, featuring a well-maintained public walkway that skirts the waterfront, providing the ultimate vantage-point of the city and iconic Harbour Bridge. Takapuna and Devonport are just a short car ride away and are bursting with shopping, cuisine and entertainment, as well as many beautiful bays and beaches.

Convenience and connectivity is paramount within the location, with the Bayswater Marina only 10-minutes from home. The Fullers Tiger Cat leaves every 15-30 minutes, making the commute to the CBD a very pleasant one indeed. Little & Friday is the perfect local spot to grab a morning coffee, just around the corner on Eversleigh Road. Those with children will appreciate the exceptional school zoning, including Hauraki Primary, Belmont Primary, Belmont Intermediate and Takapuna Grammar.

For hundreds of years Shoal Bay was known as Oneoneroa. Oneone means ‘sand’ while roa means ‘long’. It refers to the long arm of the peninsula encircling the bay, and the familiar shimmering sandspit revealed each day by the outgoing tide.  The land was purchased in 2013 with the first homes released to Ngati Whatua Orakei from the navy in 2018. Now, for the first time in more than 50 years, a new community is being built in this incredible location, enhancing this special environment now and into the future.

The exterior design is comprised of smart contemporary steel and timber, with double glazed windows and modern insulation. Two-level floorplans are perfect for relaxed living and entertaining, spilling out to manicured back gardens. Elegant kitchens and stylish bathrooms boast a European-style aesthetic, with LED lighting, underfloor heating and floor-to-ceiling tiles.

A mixture of layouts, solid construction and the opportunity to be part of an environmentally-conscious new development that’s designed to enhance the coastline, make this a very enticing prospect.

This is enhanced with the benefits of living in an architecturally-designed, brand-new, low maintenance living environment, in a sought-after North Shore location.
