- About this property
Rare Fairy-Tale MasterpieceProperty ID PON25162Prepare to lose yourself in the exquisite tranquility of an enchanting sun-drenched nikau forest glade - where a uniquely crafted home with a magical quality will cast its spell on you. It is so private, it feels like you've escaped to the Coromandel. But this extraordinary bespoke hideaway is only about a kilometre from Titirangi village and has never been on the market before.
This beautiful traditional two-storey character home was built 17 years ago in neo-Edwardian style using a mix of richly patinaed native timbers. A masterpiece of incredible quality featuring large, light-filled open living areas around a rimu and granite kitchen and five beautiful bedrooms.
Step inside and soak up the warm, welcoming ambience created by lofty pitched macrocarpa ceilings, matai joinery, jarrah floors and stunning lead light windows including two original designs by renowned West Auckland artist Dean Buchanan. Breathe in the subtle perfume of natural eucalyptus oil released by the macrocarpa as it warms. With tall sash windows and skylights in the roof, interiors are spacious, modern and light. Yet extraordinary details demonstrate a level of traditional craftsmanship rarely seen. It's always warm here, underfloor heating has been installed beneath tiled areas including in a downstairs bathroom and there are heat pumps.
In this securely (electric) gated and fenced one acre property, there are loads of lovely surprises, including an orchard, a glass house, a children's Wendy house that now provides great storage for garden tools, a comfortable consented shed and two captivating freestanding outdoor rooms in keeping with the design of the main house that accommodate a wine cellar and the laundry.
A simply sublime property that is a true collector's piece. You will have to be quick to claim this rare fairy tale masterpiece as your own.
