Our instructions are clear - this property is surplus to the owners' requirements and they want it sold - at the auction or before. Now is the time to get serious!
Set in the privacy of 2661m2 at the very end of a headland, your new home enjoys some of the best views Tutukaka can offer - from the local Marina and the Tutukaka Heads and out to the ocean beyond.
The architect has designed an amazing, generous 376m2 home on this wonderful site, incorporating a strikingly simple exterior which belies the sophistication and attention to detail of the interior.
The ground floor welcomes you in through an elegant foyer - on the right is the double garage, roomy workshop and gym; on the left, separate accommodation for family or guests with two double bedrooms and bathrooms, a large lounge and private patio.
But head upstairs where the fun begins! A huge open plan kitchen (with butler's pantry of course), dining and living spaces face that wonderful view through floor to ceiling glass, feeding seamlessly to north facing decks that step down to the gardens and lawn.
Here's where you tick off the wish list: washed American oak floors, Poggenpohl kitchen, only the best appliances, gas fire, remote controlled blinds. That's just for starters. There's also a west facing deck to capture the afternoon sun, with sliding doors and electronic awning to increase the living space.
And on to the very generous master bedroom and ensuite, a second bedroom and guest bathroom, laundry and a sunny rear deck.
You really need to visit to take it all in! This Gold Medal Winner 2011 Regional House of the Year certainly lives up to its promise. And it's just under a 2.5 hour drive from Auckland, handy to the local Tutukaka village and 25 minutes from Whangarei City.
