Nothing to do but relax, soak up the abundant sunshine and wide Gulf views, watching the Half Moon Bay ferry ply across to Waiheke, listening to the tide lapping along the shore. In an exclusive coastal strip overlooking Tahuna Torea bird sanctuary, this high quality, maritime-inspired family hideaway is the ultimate panacea to city living. A full-width terrace reaches out from substantial north-facing living. It is so sheltered, you can dine outdoors all summer long. The layout is versatile with five bedrooms or four plus office. Four have en suites plus there is a family bathroom and separate wc. Downstairs, a large rumpus/home theatre/gym or fifth bedroom with its own en suite opens through glass sliders to a manicured lawn and heated pool with waterfall. Everything is effortless in this immaculately presented suntrap. Drive through security gates, park in the internal double garage and feel the calm. Great schools (Sacred Heart, Glendowie College & Primary) are up the road and the bus to the CBD and private schools stops nearby. Maritime bliss.
