This magnificent Villa features a large, sun-filled main room with 270 degree views, a designer kitchen and scullery to die for, a central dining area which seats at least 10, a living area with television and fireplace and a huge corner window seat. There is also a “snug” living room for watching TV or having some quiet time. Downstairs you will find the very private large master bedroom, opening onto the lawn and native bush beyond. The bedroom has an en suite with a two person bath, overlooking the garden and two walk in wardrobes.
There are dining courtyards on both sides of the main house: the formal limestone-paved court with open fire, which can also be used for cooking and a more casual pebbled court with gas barbecue. Both these outdoor areas and the living rooms have speakers which will play music from your own i-Pod through the sound system.
The Estate was designed for relaxation. The peace and privacy give a real sense of “getting away from it all” although the shops, restaurants and vineyards are only 10 or 15 minutes drive away. Relax in a hammock and read a book, stroll through the olive grove, go for a morning walk in the regional park or take the track through the bush, past the huge kauri trees down to Woodside Bay for a swim.
The second bedroom is lovely and cozy with a built-in fireplace and TV.
The house is also a delight for long lazy lunches, or dinners under the stars with good friends and family. The kitchen is well appointed and very sociable, opening up onto the dining court. A visit to the wonderful Destiny Bay winery may be arranged for guests, though this is not normally open to the public.
This is a home where you can really make the most of every moment of your holiday. Total relaxation, entertain, be active or inactive, stay home, or go and try all the wonderful wine and food that Waiheke offers. The sunrise and the sunset are magnificent from this stunning property.
