Be instantly transported to Italy and totally enthralled by this Mediterranean villa in a blue chip location in Takapuna, you could almost believe you are in Lake Como. With private, direct access to Lake Pupuke for sail boats and water toys this property is situated amongst some of the finest and most sought after homes on the North Shore. Our owners spent 3 years sourcing, building and importing materials to build this dramatic 495sqm home for themselves reminiscent of holidays in Italy to ensure enduring quality, genuine architectural, character and feel of European homes they loved.
Just a few of the details within are rumbled brick from Australia, French Terracotta roof tiles, handmade terracotta floor tiles, custom Rimu and Canadian Redwood windows and cedar shutters and extensive French oak beams, just to highlight a few of the quality materials and finishes throughout. From the front entrance the position on the lake front is evident and the layout easily leads you via the main living areas onto large, private, tiered panoramic terraces to enjoy the wide vista and relax by the swimming pool. Perfectly sheltered, north facing and tiled for easy care entertaining.
The North facing 1303sqm grounds terrace beautifully down to the lake with volcanic stone paths, custom walls and beautiful gardens has one of the most usable lake frontages in the area. As with properties of this calibre it is difficult to capture the feel and scope of the home and grounds adequately through photography.
Heated floors ensure an all year round temperate climate and the home offers 3 or 4 bedrooms (or office) 3 ½ bathrooms, covered courtyard living and 3 living areas with 3 car garaging. The master suite is positioned to take in the lake views with en-suite, his and hers walk in wardrobes, living area and terrace overlooking the lake. Perfect as the private retreat to enjoy this unique and tranquil location.
First time available since built, this elegant and much desired property is now destined for someone who can appreciate the timeless quality in this enviable position in Takapuna.
