A masterpiece, home to highly acclaimed Artist Terry Stringer, designed by Award winning Architect Pip Cheshire. The pedigree says it all, the master artists have combined their talents to create something extraordinarily special. The landscape provided the perfect canvas with the covenanted ancient Kauri grove merging into green rolling lawns. Together the artists have explored the landscape and enhanced it with a truly iconic design. The award winning home, featuring moveable walls adorned with Terry’s original paintings, are designed to be flexible in their function, to produce many layout options.
The house was designed to meet the needs of the current owners by providing private accommodation but also a place that the public could come and enjoy a coffee from the commercial kitchen, while experiencing the Sculpture Garden . There is self contained accommodation upstairs that includes a kitchenette and fabulous views across the undulating meadows to the harbour. Downstairs flexible living spaces created by the moveable walls provides perfect rooms for entertaining. A bathroom and bedroom or office, creates a suite for family or guests.
The separate 200 m2 (approx.) self contained studio, housed in the gatehouse, offers options for boutique businesses. The gatehouse has it’s own separate vehicle entrance, bedroom, kitchenette and bathroom and has further development potential. The location, only a short drive from Auckland ensures that this property could be a weekend retreat, a new lifestyle or a business venture.
This is living in the art, not merely admiring the view.
