About our home

This stunning home set on 10 acres of mature native bush has a stream, waterfalls and swimming hole. 30 minutes from downtown Auckland yet a private, quiet world away from all the rush of a big city. Views of the bush and stream from every room and no visible neighbours. A sheltered yet sunny valley; no toxic sprays are used. Ideal as a retreat or an adventure paradise exploring the property or visiting the western beaches and golf courses nearby. Let the sound of the rurus (moreporks) send you to sleep and the birdsong wake you in the morning. Natures paradise and bird sanctuary. Sit in the spa and watch the stars or listen to the murmur from the stream only a few steps away. Close to bus and train stations.
The main house is designed around 2 octagons and has 3 bedrooms, two bathrooms - a large double bath and walk in showers, large kitchen, open area dining lounge plus a huge octagonal multi- purpose room with great acoustics for music, dancing or just relaxing. There is also a table tennis table and fitness gear. Upstairs are 2 bedrooms plus the bedroom/loft on the 3rd story that feels like being on top of the trees Plenty of books/games and lego sets for the kids, which need to be 10 years old minimum, because of the open waterways. There are 2 wood burning fires and a stack of firewood available during the colder months. However this valley rarely has a frost and the main house is double glazed. Most windows have insect screens.
A separate self contained space above the garage has a queen sized bed, sofa bed and bathroom. The ground floor rooms could be wheelchair friendly but assistance would be required in the bathroom.
