Along the Pohutukawa fringed shoreline of Auckland's Manukau Harbour where the sea rolls across the sand below, Orpheus Quay is an incredible peaceful safe haven from a world gone crazy. City stresses slip away as you are immersed in a lush, beautifully tamed, tropical garden paradise where borders mingle with Council reserve. The magnificent 1,582 sq m (approx.) property was named to commemorate the ship that ran aground on the Cornwallis bar with many lives lost in 1863. Just 13 km (approx) from Titirangi and a 30 km (approx) drive from downtown Auckland, this seductive private beach hideaway reminds of a luxurious Balinese resort with sweeping harbour views. Virtually every room of the timeless large three bedroom home with office looks back towards the city and airport over stunning planting and majestic palms. There is a lazy otherworldliness to airy, light-filled living areas that feature high pitched timber ceilings and unfold to expansive sundrenched hardwood decks overlooking outdoor entertaining cabanas and the pool. Lower level bedrooms and the family bathroom all open out to the pool while on the upper floor, a heavenly master sanctuary offers a spacious dressing room and spa-like bathroom. Accommodating huge storage throughout plus a wine cellar and kitchen scullery, all areas are generously proportioned. Without doubt, one of the most beautiful waterfront properties you will ever encounter anywhere - a place surrounded by the beauty of nature where time stands still, like a luxurious Balinese Beach Resort. Motivated vendors have already purchased and keen to move on. Now, more than ever is time to stake your claim on a Kiwi paradise.
