This handsome third floor apartment in the heart of Takapuna has been in the same family for two generations. Known as Windermere, the occupants of only ten dwellings enjoy living here so much they are not easily shifted.
Occupying half of the entire level, its north-east orientation ensures views towards the sea as well as the Lake. The entire space of approximately 175m² feels like a living structure in one with light and the views.
The decor is anchored in muted tones, the presentation reflecting the owners' love of travel, with paintings and objects d'art adding vibrant splashes of colour, underlining that" je ne sais quoi" of cosmopolitan elegance.
The welcoming foyer hints at what is to come. The recently upgraded kitchen with European appliances has a lovely view and opens to a dining for no less than ten people. The lounge too is fabulous for entreating and seating for many. The three double bedrooms are light and dreamy, complemented by an en-suite and a family bathroom with a bath. Practical laundry/ironing room is separate. In addition there's tandem garaging for two cars, storage locker, internal entry and lift.
Appealing and timeless from its mid 1970s split stone exterior to its interior finishes, Windermere apartments have retained their exclusivity.
Quite simply, it offers everything you need for that enviable lock up and go lifestyle-and more. Downstairs among the tropical resort-style gardens by the pool, there's even a sunny poolside entertainment lounge and kitchen.
All of this is here, now, and only a few casual paces to the heartbeat of Takapuna, cafes, restaurants and beach.
Longer settlement available.
