The Ngunguru Peninsula, Northland
We've found this spectacular paradise near Whangarei. Virtually an island, attached to the mainland by an umbilical of land, over 90% of this 27ha waterfront property enjoys riparian rights.
The main residence - one of four on the property - comprises 2000 sqm of luxurious accommodation constructed from the finest local and imported materials. It provides breath-taking, 360-degree views over the surrounding protected forests in one direction, and the Pacific Ocean in another.
The property offers rolling pastures, forest, wetlands, gardens and pohutukawa clad bays. Everywhere you wander you see an array of Highland cattle, ostriches, donkeys, Kunekune pigs, Llama, Guanaco, guinea fowl and geese. The gardens and lake surrounds have been landscaped with native and exotic plantings.
The main dwelling ranks amongst the most expensive and massively constructed residential properties in New Zealand. Stonemasons worked for five years painstakingly laying Schist from different South Island quarries, each piece having its own distinct colour. The stonemason's meticulous selection has created a stunning multi-coloured effect. Imported granite and roofing slate carry the theme throughout the three-storied residence. A circular stairway and internal elevator provide access to three extensive 'walkout' areas from where guests soak in panoramic views. The main house has five bedrooms, each with ensuite, environmental control and private entertainment facilities.
There is also a high security room, indoor parking for eight cars, spacious lounges, an atrium, theatre, 180 sqm conference room, and computer-controlled lighting and indoor climate.
A natural ambiance has been created throughout using natural wood. Internal joinery comprises heart rimu, kauri, kwila, cedar and massive ceiling beams of greenheart from Guyana - renowned for its strength and stability.
The heated salt-water pool and spa elevated above the waterways encourage all year-round relaxation and entertainment.
At the gateway to our greatest tourism playground, this is a golden opportunity - a private, secure and tranquil retreat, permanent family home or lodge with conference facilities all within walking distance to the picturesque Ngunguru village.
