Tropical Tranquillity In Tudor Style
Characterised by the serene setting and enchanting architecture, Brimaur Estate is a sweeping oasis with potential and prominence, within minutes of the effervescent shorelines of St Heliers Bay, and offering seamless accessibility to the verge of downtown Auckland.
Ascending the palm clad driveway - behind the automated gates - lush lawns, groves of Nikau and a pond pass by before meeting the acquaintance of this stately Tudor-style home, presiding over its sheltered and utterly tranquil 1.3-acre (approx.) city-fringe sanctuary.
North facing, an extensive floorplan complements the tropic foliage-blessed periphery, garnering all-day sunlight and providing extraordinary spaces to entertain and rejuvenate against a backdrop of landscaped gardens and majestic native bush. Inside, the ambience is charmingly inviting, with a vast yet comfortable living configuration that accentuates charismatic qualities such as the pitched entrance foyer starring definable exposed beams, ornamental mouldings and delicate textural finishes.
Overseeing the native canopy with Auckland's Waitemata Harbour and Rangitoto Island on the horizon, a balcony intersects the formal lounge with an open fireplace and the bespoke utilitarian kitchen/living; it's a setting suited to relaxed alfresco moments. Furthermore, there is an exquisite traditional dining room with library, one family bathroom plus two powder rooms, a magical attic room and four generous bedrooms, including the master suite, replete with ensuite and walk-in wardrobe.
Creating a buoyant atmosphere for family and guests is the 30-foot heated pool, spa and cabana; there is also a gateway to a nature trail here, where playful tui and fantail show-off from daybreak to twilight.
Two garages, a utility/laundry, garden shed, and vegetable gardens are further highlights.
Constructed circa 1970s, adjacent to the 22-acre Dingle Dell Reserve and treasured by the current owners for over 38 years, scope exists to reenvisage aspects of the home to its full potential.
