This magnificent contemporary estate in New Zealand is on sale by negotiation. 22 Tudor Park Drive, Whitford, Manukau City, New Zealand is built in permanent materials to withstand both the fresh sea breezes and the test of time. Upon first impression the geometric forms of the home’s structure are used to visually segment the look of the exterior, a clever ruse to ensure maximum privacy whilst fully engaging with the natural surroundings. Cleverly done through expanding the linear framework of the house’s structure and creating spaces that once filled with glazing & materials transforms the home to its’ solid sculptural quality, particularly resplendent at night.
For simplicity, neutral tones throughout provide the perfect backdrop for the rich colour and texture of natural timbers, timeless and used to great effect throughout the home. Impressive gallery height entrance doors bridge the gap from the formal outer to the clandestine warmth and welcome of the open interior. Instantly apparent are a series of comfortable living areas, each visually networked with the other while maintaining a strong connection to the outdoors.
Clever design actively encourages interaction between the indoor and outdoor spaces with a central pavilion that happens to be open to the stars. Creating a link between the two stories and to enhance the spacious feel of the home, there are double height voids both inside and out, with the connection evident at every turn.
For the ultimate in home grown entertainment, there is the home theatre of considerable acoustic merit, the tennis court of international standard and the covered pool complex worthy of any resort. Throughout, expansive openings permit vistas of the natural surroundings, bush clad hillsides, moored yachts at Shelly Bay and the waters of the harbour and outer islands, framed as if individual pictures by the artistic placement of the pillars. As impressive as this home appears, the emphasis is on relaxed living, alfresco dining, all year round poolside fun.
The present and original owners have put heart and sole into the creation and establishment of this spectacular property, their family have enjoyed the benefits of a lifestyle environment, the opportunities the greater land size offers for outdoor activities and the treasured experience of being part of a country community. Within an easy commute of Auckland CBD and local shopping just minutes away there is no need for compromise on any level.
