Alluring, Architecture, Aspect… this spectacular property has all three of these essential elements, in abundance.

Architect David Childs, created this dramatic design for our owners on a glorious site high on our most favoured hill just over 10 years ago. Settled perfectly on a large flat platform there is easy access and plenty of parking to augment triple garaging. The aspect directly to the North West, reduces that wicked easterly of ours to non-existent. As you would envisage, the views are all encompassing and simply spectacular inviting an uninterrupted line of sight from Sumner beach and village happenings, to the city and mountains beyond, then turning towards vast Pegasus Bay and on a clear day as far as the Seaward Kaikouras. The ever changing parade of passing vessels is sure to fascinate and relax. Given the legendary microclimate, inside is outside is inside here! There are ‘outdoor rooms’ for sitting, exercising, cooking…whatever your penchant.

This is an expertly crafted, (Duncan Taylor Builders), substantial home of around 373sqm with a modern elegance combined with the timeless warmth of timber. Cleverly future proofed by the presence of a lift, currently convenient for moving furniture or even groceries, technology is evident everywhere with ducted heating/cooling and ‘wired for sound’. If the beach lifestyle in an eclectic and hip community appeals then you must view this exciting proposition soon.

After a tenure of more than a decade, our serious sellers have a new home nearing completion and they do not want to be encumbered with two abodes.
