Resort Style Residence, Herne Bay, Auckland, New Zealand
The tropical feeling of this private yet elegant family home instantly relaxes you as you make your way along the palm tree-lined driveway. Set well back from the road and surrounded by large covered verandas and complete with cedar joinery, this plantation-style property is truly a breath of fresh air offering very easy indoor/outdoor living throughout.
The lawn and pool complex opening off the main living areas to the north are integrated perfectly with the home. There is a large loggia with copper roof between the indoors and the pool which cleverly blends the areas together. Here, both summer and winter living works incredibly well as the overhangs that create the island-style feel of the home act as shelter in winter and shade in summer.
There are three separate living areas in the home and five generous bedrooms. Also separate guest accommodation has been added above the three-car garaging and wine room which are also accessed along wide covered walkways and verandas through the tropical planting. You have five bathrooms throughout the home and a unique top floor office built in the center or the roof space giving a crows nest style room away from the rest of the home so you can tuck yourself away should you wish.
This truly is a home you must experience to appreciate as the relaxed atmosphere here will absorb you to want to stay for as long as you can.
