Like a vigilant watchtower, The Circle has stood 12 floors high over Milford since 1970. Envisioned by four renowned architects and now home to 12 proud owner-occupants, for decades this landmark building has been the subject of admiration, not only for its desirable coastal position or 360-degree panoramic views, but for its claim in the history books as the site of C.F. Goldie's family's summerhouse: also once known as Maratea.
Before The Circle's time, and before nearby Lake Pupuke was a body of water for keen kayakers and police training dives, Goldie's studio stood here on the family estate. His father, former New Zealand Politician David Goldie, purpose-built it as a space for Goldie to practise his craft and is inevitably where a few of his subjects - Maori chiefs and leaders - once sat while he created his national works of art.
In 2011 the level three, three-bedroom, two-bathroom apartment was beautifully renovated. It was taken back to a concrete floor, concrete ceiling and nine concrete columns. Modernised and entailing careful selection of quality materials and fittings, including underfloor heating in the bathrooms and the gourmet kitchen - the interior spaces still create a place of calm and comfort from which to enjoy the all-inclusive views.
The floorplan and vistas make a complete loop of the building, with deeply beautiful views spanning from the Waitemata Harbour to Lake Pupuke and onward to Auckland City, then over the North Shore's inland suburbs tracking back to Milford and its coastline. On a clear day, you can even see as far as Great Barrier Island and the Coromandel Peninsula.
The apartment is accessed by either the internal lift or winding staircase and is assigned a lock-up double garage and storeroom. With plenty of guest parking on site, there is also a pool for residents which is privately tucked away on the immaculate grounds. An iconic position and heritage with outstanding views!
