<b>Live The Dream - Waterfront Lifestyle On Your Own Lake</b>
11 LEWIS LANE
One of Auckland's most unique properties is on the market! The incredible lakeside Boathouse Row.
This amazing property is set within 3.2 hectares of beautiful manicured lawns and mature gardens, perfect for spectacular family gatherings and entertaining. But the real jewel in this particular crown is the 1.6 hectare fresh-water lake, with 170m2 of decking complete with commercial grade jetty and boat ramp. There is a separate over-water sundeck and a main deck, including a BBQ, Spa and storage locker for the water toys! Picture the children paddle-boarding, windsurfing or learning to sail their dinghy - on your own private lake all summer long!
The 562m2 Russell Pinel, architecturally designed home is inspired by the quintessential NZ boat shed. Authentic timber weatherboard cladding, copper guttering and tongue-and-groove soffits all add to the quality of this stunning build.
There are five bedrooms, a further two study/bedroom style rooms, four bathrooms and guest toilet, with the combined dining/kitchen family area opening out onto the main deck and the lake view. A formal lounge also opens onto the jetty, and has a fantastic open fireplace and a Tannoy surround sound system. The self-contained master bedroom wing is set out over the lake, and includes a private lounge and entertainment area with a gas fireplace, a kitchenette, a twin-shower ensuite and stand-alone Italian stone bath with stunning lake views.
A large conservatory is connected to the family area, so you can enjoy the panorama all year long; the bi-fold doors allow both walls to be completely open westward to the lake, or eastward to the garden patio and lawns - perfect for entertaining. It has overhead gas and underfloor heating options.
There is garaging for three cars, with the added bonus of the garage having doors at both ends. Another feature is a workshop, perfect for those who want to tinker!
Above the garage with its own entrance, is a large separate loft including bedroom and ensuite. Along with a spacious lounge this is a perfect au pair, teenager or guest accommodation, games room, office or gym.
The well-established and landscaped grounds include paddocks suitable for sheep or a horse, a utility shed and ample parking for all your guests.
Just 25 minutes off peak to the CBD or 35 minutes to the airport, this incredible rural property has been a magical home for its growing family over the years, and it is now time to pass the baton to the next generation of Boathouse Rowers to live the dream!
