A Sanctuary Like No Other

No detail was overlooked nor expense spared on this spectacular, award winning home. Architect designed by Novak+Middleton to reflect the natural beauty of its surrounds, it is just 20 mins by ferry from Wellington CBD. Sheltered, north facing & steps from the beach it overlooks, there are cafes, schools and other great facilities nearby. A 495sqm interior comprises 6 bedrooms, of which 2 are ensuite including the master which commands an entire level. A luxurious open plan kitchen flows to expansive living, with 3 stylish, versatile spaces & a wine cellar. Walls of glass & decks spanning 176sqm bring the outdoors to all rooms. Next to the double garage is a picture theatre & on the 5th floor a very private heated pool completes this incomparable package. Experience this property on video at bit.ly/615aMarineDrive

Intentionally discrete, with a security controlled portico, keyless entry and steps up to the first floor level. Through the front door, timber lined walls, pale oak floors and a 'floating' staircase behind a thick glass wall lead to the living floor, setting the scene for the exceptional luxury beyond. A hot outdoor shower is positioned on the ground floor level for return trips from the beach.

A concealed wine cellar is on the living floor with a concrete floor and built in Victorian Ash shelving. The place for convivial conversation about the finer nuances of the delicious grape.

Large, beautifully scaled and open plan to the kitchen/dining with floor to ceiling glass providing a panoramic view of Days Bay and beyond; An open gas fire and radiators provides heat and ambience in the cooler months; in summer, slide back massive glazed doors to move outside and look out for the dolphins, orcas and seals that visit the bay from time to time.

Open plan to the kitchen/living, facing enormous ranch sliders that bring the outdoors inside. The pleasure of dining is enhanced by the ever changing vista of sky, sea and the activities of people enjoying the beach, running, cycling or walking to and from the ferry in the course of a working day. Fling back the doors to hear the waves lapping onto the beach...it is easy to think you are on holiday every day.

Too beautiful to conceal, the kitchen is open plan, at the entrance to the living floor and forms the heart of the area where most time is spent, conversations held and memories made. The emphasis is on practicality, quality and luxury. Aesthetically befitting of this home, Victorian Ash veneer cabinetry is topped with thick slate to provide ample space for serious cooks to work together. Three Miele ovens include a combination micro/oven and dedicated steam oven. Two Miele dishwashers make light of clearing dishes and a spacious butler's pantry has ample room for food storage and smaller appliances.
