You'll never feel the need to go on holiday again!
A subtropical climate and palm trees down Waiheke's idyllic little main street - there's really nowhere like Waiheke in the whole country. Once here, you will never want to leave.
Arrival at Waimangu Road is announced by plantings of pungas. Your only neighbours are the trees, and the only noise is the tuis arguing with the woodpigeons over the seasonal fruit.
Inside, through the wide portico, sun streams in from every window and when you sit at the head of the dining table you survey the Sky Tower and the Auckland skyline on the other side of the harbour across the native bush.
This must be the most iconic vista in the country. It's certainly a dream home for entertaining. With a wide deck wrapping around two sides of the house you can move around to get sun and avoid wind, or vice versa, and no neighbours means your privacy is absolute. The state of the art keypad entertainment control in the main living areas and main bedroom provides an entertainment scenario which gives you complete control over sound and you can even play your iPod throughout the house.
The two living areas of kitchen/dining/lounge, and lounge proper, which both have floor to ceiling glass and glass doors, can be divided by Japanese shoji screen doors but rarely are because the kitchen is almost as gorgeous as the view. Made by Poggenpohl and imported entirely from Germany, it is high tech white and steel, with an enormous kitchen island bench made from three million year-old Italian granite weighing half a ton. Twin Smeg ovens, a walk in pantry, the many wide drawers and billionaire views make this a dream workspace.
The lounge with its three walls of glass and wide views outside gives a feeling of great spaciousness, which is accentuated, throughout the house by the 4m high stud and arched ceiling. The color palette is all natural, with buff walls, and tropical Kwila hardwood floors in the common areas, dense mocha carpet in the bedrooms and lounge plus steel detailing in the kitchen.
All rooms have floor to ceiling glass sliding doors and the main bedroom, spectacularly, has them on both sides so you can lie in bed and watch the lights of the city and the Sky Tower's changing colors. Its spacious en-suite has a double basin, tiled shower and bath and there's an enormous amount of storage plus a walk in wardrobe. Both secondary bedrooms have floor to ceiling glass sliding doors opening to the deck with extensive views of the bush and great storage. Recessed lighting throughout, is controlled by 'smart' wiring, which gives fingertip control, the living areas bedrooms and bathrooms all have under floor heating for the winter months and wooden slat blinds to screen sunshine during the summer - and when you need nature, you just step outside the door.
This wonderful home borders the beautiful Whakanewha Regional Park, where there are what feel like private bush walks, and it's only a 15 minute walk down to a secluded little beach. Not that you need it. The pool is 12m x 6m x 2m deep with a thatched pool shed to complete the holiday feeling. Over 30 palm trees grace the tropical garden with feijoas, bananas, peaches, nectarines, and grapefruit, among the fruits to be picked and a large, self contained barn and a little sleep out provide beds for spill over house guests. When the guests have all gone, the peace and privacy is all yours again to enjoy, until the bright lights of the city beckon, with the ferry just 20 minutes away.
The peace will be waiting for you when you come home.
