Smell the Sea Air

This is a sun-kissed haven of lush gardens, privacy, and panoramic views, and is in a sufficiently unique microclimate on the Tahunanui Hills for it to be a low-maintenance gardener’s delight. In fact the property was landscaped by Chelsea and Hampton Court Palace Garden show award winner James Wheatley, who established Palm trees, Bromeliads and subtropicals with great success. There are a number of outdoor spaces within the garden itself where both the views, the gardens, and a glass of wine can be enjoyed.

The property’s unique position means it’s protected from summer’s prevailing sea breezes, and at any time of year the decks are bathed in sunlight until the end of each day.

Fully refurbished, modernised and expanded in 2007, this sensational home enjoys a seamless flow from indoors to the expansive outdoor living, which means the deck is perfect for summer dining or entertaining until late in the evening. The fully equipped kitchen catches sun throughout the day and the open plan design ensures the chef is always part of the action. The home is packed with features that will delight you, such as the Italian marble tiles in the master en-suite. Real attention to detail has created a home our vendors have enjoyed for many years.

The views from the home are extensive and stretch out across Tahunanui Beach right to the ever-changing tableau of the far horizon, and across a wide panorama.

One of the special features here is the spacious and purpose-built wine cellar. Garaging is internal and the driveway is sealed from the street right up to the house, and there’s plenty of off-street parking for visitors.

This is the right home in exactly the right location. You’ll love waking up here every single day.
