Loving Life at the Beach
Collect your favourite people and head to the beach.
Situated on Marine Parade on land which was originally the old Blue Dolphin Motel this beautifully created, solidly designed and built 'New York loft' style apartment will make you feel right at home. The site directly across the road from the beach was chosen by the owners for its elevation, all day sun and wide ocean views. They lived on the site for a year before demolishing the block of flats and built four fabulous apartments in 2016 (each with their own freehold title) including this stunning 440sqm home for themselves.
The apartment has an industrial look about it - the exterior with its brick and steel construction and the interior with its tilt-slab concrete walls, solid timber floors and iron staircases. Everything was thoughtfully designed to provide solid quality, comfort and relaxation. The owner's eclectic décor style has softened the home, so despite its super-cool design the home is a relaxing sun-filled haven where the owners who are self-confessed 'collectors of people' have entertained large groups as well as smaller intimate groups of friends who absolutely love coming to visit.
The main home offers three bedrooms, three lounges, three bathrooms and a lift. There's a beautiful water view from every room. The open plan kitchen, dining and lounge take in the gorgeous panorama 'transporting' you onto the beach. Behind the kitchen the TV/media/hobby room is a place to curl up and read a book when you want an escape. Upstairs, three bedrooms and a third lounge ensure no matter how many are in the house, there is somewhere else to escape to. The master bedroom has the prime view upstairs, with sun from its first peek until sunset at night.
The two- bedroom self-contained apartment can be accessed from the front foyer so extra family and friends can be part of the main house. However, if you want your guests to be separate the external access allows them to come and go as they please. Doors open wide from here out to the courtyard so guests can have their own space and views of the beach too. It's perfect for long term guests and ideal for a B&B. Or you can keep the whole home for yourself - the lifestyle options are endless.
Across the road from one of New Zealand's most popular beaches this home with its many living options is north facing with all day sun and has a beach view which will take your breath away.
