Part of the elite group of homes that embrace the cliff on Churchill Road, this Murrays Bay property celebrates large-scale, resort-style living at its consummate best. Architecturally-designed by Frances -Clarke architects and crafted by renowned Dominion Constructors and Roger
Humphries Builders 20 years ago, the approx. 520sqm residence offers five bedrooms, three bathrooms (including six toilets) and four-car internal garaging. It's a feat of construction and engineering, built from concrete and steel, and will be the perfect grandstand position for next year's America's Cup, thanks to its 180-degree panoramic views.
The expansive, two-level home has been built around a central swimming pool complex, framed with well-established, tropical landscaping. Although incredibly generous in size, all areas enjoy a fantastic sense of connection with one another, making it the perfect family
The marble entrance hall is on the ground floor, where a wall of large glass sliders opens out to the pool and outdoor entertaining area that's bathed in afternoon sun.
A large, open-plan bar and rumpus flows out poolside, where a LouvreTec canopy provides shelter above the barbeque area. A sliding door at the other end of the room accesses the landscaped garden and showcases the magical sea views. The master suite next door enjoys
the same connection with the water, via large picture windows, and has a walk-in wardrobe and ensuite. There's one other bedroom down here, that also has its own ensuite.
Upstairs, the open-plan living, dining and kitchen room has a soaring ceiling stud, with clerestory windows illuminating it with natural light. It opens out to two balconies, as well as stepping down into an enclosed loggia that overlooks the pool. The views from up here are nothing short of spectacular. The vantage point captures 180 degrees of unobstructed panorama that stretches from Whangaparaoa right down to the Eastern suburbs and Coromandel, with Rangitoto and all the islands of the gulf sprinkled in between.
A curved mezzanine hallway extends along the accommodation wing, which offers three more bedrooms, a large office and family bathroom.
The home has been future-proofed with a lift, as well as a second study and large separate laundry on the ground floor.
The location adds to the immense appeal - these positions are incredibly sought-after and rarely available. Both Murrays Bay and Rothesay Bay beaches are a quick walk from home, as are local Rothesay Bay shops and eateries. The handy coastal walkway means Browns Bay and Mairangi Bay are also within walking distance,
for a wider range of food, shops and services.
Excellent school zoning includes Murrays Bay School, Murrays Bay Intermediate and Rangitoto College.
