Floating Cliff Top Views - selling below CV

20 Karori Crescent, Orakei, Auckland City

An impressive design by architect David Delamare, merges upfront north facing and expansive views from the wide frontage of this post-modern cedar family home.

Unobstructed views from the elevated site look directly to North Head and Devonport with Bastion Point to the east and the Orakei Marina to the west. The 180 degree vista offers inspiring sun rises and magical sunsets over the Waitemata Harbour.

The views are mellowing by night with the twinkling lights across the bay and upbeat during the day. There is a host of activity, including passing cruise ships and the Waiheke ferry is on the move constantly. There is never a dull moment and new buyers can look forward to the box seat views of the much anticipated Americas Cup racing boats.

Situated on a large freehold site containing 910 sqm, the property has excellent off road parking and a north facing garden. Built over two levels the rooms are expansive with excellent storage throughout the house. A massive 460 sqm floor plan is made up of 5 bedrooms and multiple living rooms and storage areas including a man-cave with a work bench top.

From the entry foyer, the floor plan offers apartment style living on one level. Emphasis is placed on large and inviting windows offering maximum views. Excellent use of sky lights ensures the house is vibrant and light at all times. There is ducted gas central heating and an elevator services all levels.

The lower level is made of an additional 3 bedrooms, a large bathroom, billiards room, wine cellar and storage rooms. All 3 bedrooms offer excellent sea views.

The house is built with a solid concrete foundation, finished in cedar and capped with copper flashings and guttering. A new roof was completed 3 years ago.

Both formal and informal living areas have built in shelving, box seating and offer a sense of space. The formal lounge is made up of wonderful proportions with a centre fire place of Hinuera stone, a cove ceiling and a centre stage view of the Harbour.
