One look at this property and it’s clearly apparent, it bears the aura of an estate more commonly associated with international VIP status.

It begins with a private site covering around 5810 square metres of lush grounds in the lifestyle area of Tamahere’s Twin Oaks Drive. That alone sets the stage for exquisite park-like seclusion, a field of fruit trees, poolside setting and five fountains that can be viewed from various rooms within this mansion.

And mansion it is – more than 600 square metres of extraordinary space and architectural mastery. The classical lines of a Tuscan villa are unmistakeable. Yet this home blends an extraordinary degree of heritage and nuances found throughout Europe and the Mediterranean.

More than 400 tons of materials were imported to fulfil the vision the owners had for their family when creating this home and playground. Elements have come from around the world. Black oak cabinetry in the gourmet kitchen and scullery was hand crafted. Brazilian granite matches the statement on the bar-stool island. Hand-carved marble baths feature in bathrooms, along with bespoke vanities and walk-in showers. All are fully tiled, in tune with continental styling.

Towering studs, fresco wall and ceiling finish, detailed floor tiling and bespoke treatments in every room showcases an expression of artistry and craftsmanship. It is a unique home, and it will doubtless be a buyer of equal understanding that will fully appreciate the depth of work and cost behind this property’s creation.

Designed in two separate wings, the home gives parents their own privacy with a five-star ensuite bedroom retreat and extensive entertainment areas with fireside lounge relaxation, cathedral-domed setting. Formal dining inside caters for crowds in a restaurant style room. Loggia dining offers an outdoor kitchen, pizza oven and fireplace lounge setting. The second wing is dedicated for other family members – from children to extended family. With four bedrooms and two bathrooms, this wing also boasts its own living area before leading out to the resort-style, salt water swimming pool with its waterfall feature.

From the dedicated theatre lounge, business centre with its built-in furniture, gallery passages and colonnades to the expertise of built-in units and distinctive finish in every corner, this home is already a timeless piece of history and heritage.

With grounds to grow organic fruit and vegetables in keeping with the European way, this property is lavished with expense. A cobbled, tree-lined driveway, state-of-the-art Smart Wired systems throughout, ducted heating and cooling, double glazed wooden joinery– unique is an understatement.
