This stunning 2.4 hectare estate is set in Whitford's 'dress circle' on the exclusive Clifton peninsula offering lovely long views of surrounding pastures out to the Tamaki Strait and Rangitoto Island. Solid poured concrete 'hot block' construction provides warmth in the winter and is cooling in the summer. The residence was designed by Hoadley Budge Architects with input from the owners, with a vision to create a beautiful country home that is luxurious yet comfortable, family friendly and which incorporated their leisure pursuits. The Morgan Pools designed 25 metre swimming pool caters for the dedicated swimmer whilst the barn and dressage arena indulges all that an equestrian would desire. The gourmet kitchen functions as the headquarters for all events and daily living. The formal dining and lounge areas open to a covered patio and at the top of the wide staircase, the library is a peaceful, quiet oasis. The loft and bonus room over the garage provide the option for a workout room, hobby area, sewing room, a teenager's hideaway or a playroom for the little ones. The circle driveway accesses the barn which has three stables with outdoor yards attached to each box, a separate tack room and feed room. Adjoining the barn is the 60x20 metre dressage arena along with eight fenced paddocks for grazing. The oversized garage has room for your horse truck. The Clifton Peninsula is an 'Equestrian Mecca' with safe riding and walking trails that lead down to the lovely Clifton Beach. The Pine Harbour Marina is a 10 minute drive to connect you to the ferry which is an unflustered 30 minute commute to downtown Auckland. Local shopping options are all within a short drive, providing you with supermarket, gymnasiums, exercise studios, veterinary services and restaurants. With its breath-taking combination of elegance and sophistication, this property will delight the hobby or serious equestrian, the triathlete in training or a family seeking the utmost in tasteful country living.
