Beachfront Eastbourne The Place To Be


Commanding a view of the dramatic marine seascape, this award winning harbour-front property is a significant 961 sqm (approx.) site spanning road to dunes. Comprising a reshaped 1930s home with separate self-contained cottage and indoor solar heated lap pool pavilion, all was extensively renovated in 2011 by Studio Pacific’s Stephen McDougall.
Harnessing natural materials including native and exotic timbers, limestone and granite, the substantial transformation garnered two NZIA Wellington Architecture Awards.
Life here will appeal to nature loving adventurers invigorated by the moods and hues of Wellington’s mercurial harbour and staunch bush clad hills.

The main house offers spatially generous living and accommodation with a substantial entrance foyer clad in American white oak paneling and flooring, the latter also anchoring the nearby reception rooms. A softly carpeted living room flanks a centrepiece dining room sited beneath raked timber ceilings while two sets of double exterior doors introduce an uber cool coastal vibe. For the gourmet cook a designer kitchen with walk in pantry has twin butler sinks set into a granite topped island – an integral element to the cook’s social interactions with diners. Flow to the expansive decks and Newdick Moorhead landscaped gardens beyond, are idyllic areas for summer entertaining. Upstairs, the lavish master quarters and sitting area enjoy a heavenly outlook, perfect for quiet reading. Elevated dress circle views are also enjoyed from the luxurious bathroom and a home office located alongside versatile storage spaces.

Set well back from the road with off street parking outside a striking postmodern garage, while the indoor pool and garden cottage snuggle privately amidst the trees. Close to Eastbourne’s tasty eateries and quaint shopping village, ocean swimming on your doorstep, bike rides, bush hiking, and all an easy commute into Wellington City.
