En lo alto de la cima del acantilado entre Milford y Castor Bay, la casa goza de mayor paz, privacidad y seguridad en sus tres cuartos sitio acre. El arquitecto Richard Priest ha creado un diseño único que barre las dos alas de la vida suntuosa en torno a un área pavimentada de vida al aire libre.

One of New Zealand's most luxurious homes for sale - Price guide NZ$10M (approx US$5M)

Discerning architecture and a magnificent location have combined to produce a property that is so much more than simply a sum of its parts. A cliff top with sweeping views stretching from St Heliers in the south across the Hauraki Gulf to Coromandel and Great Barrier Island provides the site for a striking home that complements but never overwhelms its setting. Combined, the result is an impressive property that maximises its superlative location and architecture.
Set high on the cliff top between Milford and Castor Bay, the house keeps the bustle and noise of city life firmly at bay, and instead enjoys utmost peace, privacy and security on its three quarter acre site. While its 1000m² floor plan makes this a home of palatial proportions, thoughtful design has ensured its size never overwhelms.
Instead this is essentially a warm and practical home ideal for family life and entertaining whether on an intimate or grand scale. Architect Richard Priest has created a unique design that sweeps two wings of sumptuous living around a paved outdoor living area.
These are linked by spacious galleries opening directly to the courtyard lending a taste of the exotic to the property. The courtyard, with its outdoor fireplace, sheltered sitting and dining areas and 21 metre heated pool, complete with diving platform, overlooks a stunning expanse of sea and sky.
A fire-pit and spa with its own DVD add to the resort feel of this setting, and as darkness falls spectacular outdoor lighting ensures the atmosphere is retained. Inside, a choice of spacious living and dining areas, all enjoying expansive views, flow out to this courtyard.
Decorated in a tasteful and understated manner, no expense has been spared to ensure a luxurious lifestyle, with the kitchen and living areas equipped with the latest in technology and appliances. Under-floor heating throughout and several gas fireplaces ensure year round comfort.
The master suite on the upper floor is of truly grand proportions designed to provide a luxurious yet understated retreat - a perfect foil for the expanse of sea and sky on view. It includes a spacious bathroom and sitting room, and a cosy den perfect for relaxing with a good book or movie.
Its six bedrooms, five bathrooms and choice of living areas, including a games room, gym, sauna, beauty therapy room and office allows the option of accommodating extended family or guests in separate self contained areas.
