45 Cliff Road, St Heliers, Auckland, New Zealand
This enviably luxurious Italian-style villa with resort-style benefits is positioned on a spectacular 0.44 acre site elevated above Auckland’s iconic Waitemata Harbour with sweeping views to the Sky Tower and the islands of the Hauraki Gulf. With stone, paving, roof tiles, shutters, and stone fireplaces sourced direct from Italy, this home is truly unique and has an air of European quality set in a distinctly New Zealand context.
Encircled by groomed gardens beyond a gatehouse and forecourt with fountain, the house unfolds in a series of elegantly-proportioned rooms around a grand foyer. Its rich interiors of oak and limestone are meticulously detailed with luxury and comfort in mind.
Generous living and recreational spaces include formal living room, oak-shelved library, a family sitting room, well-crafted gourmet kitchen and a dedicated home cinema. A sheltered semi-enclosed loggia terrace adds an extra relaxation space and is the best place to appreciate the expansive views.
There are four bedrooms in the main house each with their own ensuite bathrooms. The sumptuous master suite with dress-circle views includes a gentleman’s study and a large dressing room; a private retreat from the rest of the home.
The property also features a two-bedroom self-contained gatehouse with studio workshop or recreation room, plus double garaging. This additional dwelling is perfect for providing guests with their own quarters. Equally, this accommodation could suit extended family members or household staff – perhaps you would like to have resident managers to oversee the property whilst you attend to business or family commitments overseas.
The Italian-influences extend to the sunken garden, intricate iron work and pizza oven while a temperature-controlled wine room will allow you to select from New Zealand’s internationally-acclaimed wines and keep your collection in optimal conditions.
The main residence has sizeable four-plus garaging providing safe storage for family vehicles and belongings. Stay fit or simply enjoy the 72′ indoor lap pool, and unwind in the therapeutic steam room. With the home facing north-west to take best advantage of the sun, you’re just a short stroll to quaint St Heliers Village with its cafe and restaurants, seaside ambience, vacation atmosphere and boutique shopping precinct.
