What started out as an up-dating makeover, soon turned into a passionate grand renovation project of epic proportions, to say the least. This stunning waterside home with a floor area of over 260m² has been extensively re-built and re-designed literally from the ground up. Don't be fooled by its kerb-side single level fascade either, for once inside you will instantly realise there is way more to this two level premium home than meets the eye. The impressive open plan living space sprawls out over the entire width of the property, capturing a magnificent tapestry of views from the Sky Tower to Rangitoto and beautiful 180 degree views of Auckland's marine playground, the Hauraki Gulf. The sensational sea views come complete with an intimate perspective overlooking Omana Beach and the views encompass almost the entire length of Waiheke. The view even includes at times fire works over the city and who knows, it may just provide a unique perceptive for the America's Cup training days. The north facing over-sized covered terrace with its huge double gazed doors slide open to create the perfect extension to the living space, ideal for alfresco breakfasts in the morning or watching the sun set over Auckland City while entertaining friends and family over dinner. If up to the minute decor and top quality chattels and fixtures are your thing, then this beautiful four bedroom home will satisfy even the most discerning buyer. Upstairs are three comfortable bedrooms, one being the generously sized master room with a spacious wardrobe and an ensuite ready to spoil you like you are at the spa. For guests, teens or extended family, the downstairs will be their perfect domain with a double bedroom, bathroom, laundry, study and its own living area that opens out to a private courtyard. The double internal garaging and off street parking is well catered for with a private access driveway at the rear of the property, ideal for keeping the camper, jet ski or boat out of sight. If you are seeking an incredibly tasteful modern home by the beach with breathtaking sea views in one of Maraetai's best streets, then living here can only be smooth sailing.
