In the most secretive, secure, gated community imaginable, this 10-acre private waterfront resort sanctuary on park-like grounds is an exquisite nature's paradise. The substantial north-facing home was built for total escape at the edge of the Manukau Inlet. Launch the kayak off the lawn, catch a fish from the jetty for dinner, total serenity is assured. Yet the latest hi-tech adds luxurious indulgence in hidden sound systems, security cameras, heat pumps and underfloor heating. Nothing was spared creating a sublime wonderland; a playground for a dream family lifestyle, together with spaces for pets including post and rail paddocks for horses.

Entertaining is divine - the large bespoke marble kitchen by Carlielle Kitchens includes a scullery and opens directly to the water beside a generous lounge and dining area.

From every window, glorious vistas reach over expansive lawns, immaculate tropical gardens, the meandering river and tranquil farmland where your animals can graze. Huge bedrooms each have bathrooms and generous walk-in wardrobes. Upstairs, a vast master suite expands into its own lounge and a balcony is the perfect spot for an evening wine watching the sun sink down over the water.

Throughout the home, storage is capacious, plus there is space above the three car carpeted garage. Extended family or guests are comfortably accommodated in the original stables brilliantly converted to a romantic yet spacious three bedroom barn. Should you ever need more space, beside the heated pool (with electric cover), the pool house with fully equipped gym, sauna, bathroom and integrated sound system could convert to a teen retreat.

An extremely rare opportunity to move into this tightly held, revered gated waterfront community of just six large properties, 35 minutes (approx.) from Auckland's buzz.
