Cowes Bay Estate is one of the most desirable and enviable properties on Waiheke Island. Positioned on a 700m stretch of beachfront, this 31.48Ha (77.8 acres) estate sits on four separate titles of pristine real estate that will not fail to inspire, awe and fill you with wonder. The plantation style home elegantly reveals itself over the enormous 4111sqm that includes eight bedrooms, six bathrooms, four powder rooms and three open fireplaces. An entertainers’ paradise with formal and informal living and dining, this home will not fail to cater to and wow your very fortunate guests.
A sweeping “Gone with the Wind” style grand staircase heralds one’s arrival to the grand foyer, in fact all features of this home are on an appropriately grand scale. From the 9.5 metre indoor swimming pool to the sublime 180° panorama sea views that open up in front of you. Opening onto an enormous enclosed courtyard and a pool loggia, the house facilities lend themselves entirely to the joys of Waiheke’s subtropical climate and alfresco dining.
A world within itself, this vast property also includes all the necessary services such as a caretaker’s residence, a housekeeper’s cottage, three implement sheds, cowshed, a 49 metre wharf, boatshed, boat ramp, mooring and a floodlit tennis court. Four separate studios within the grounds have been thoughtfully renovated to create sumptuous and fully self-contained guest accommodation, with kitchen, lounge, bathroom and bedroom. A fabulous entertaining pavilion situated next to the units has extensive catering facilities, large windows and comfortable suites for your guests to unwind and enjoy a meal together.
This is an extraordinary lifestyle in a private world and within commuting distance, either by ferry or helicopter, to New Zealand’s largest city of Auckland.
