Pure design drama in Coatesville

This Coatesville masterpiece spans a colossal 510m2 of pure residential luxury, located at the heart of Auckland’s most elite rural community. The architecturally-designed home, having had considerable thought towards Feng Shui, was purchased two years ago by the current owners who were struck by its incredible proportions, location and spectacular views. Having marveled at many of New Zealand’s finest luxury lodges, they used this as their inspiration when masterminding the breathtaking, recently completed renovation project. They have found the perfect balance of stately elegance and rustic comfort to create a truly captivating aesthetic.

The property is part of exclusive Lynton Masters Lane, a private enclave positioned away from the main road, which epitomises the very best of country living only 7 minutes from Albany. A short drive from Coatesville village, with its cafes, dairy and pony club. Excellent schooling options include Coatesville Primary School, Albany Junior, Albany Senior Schools and Kristin and Pinehurst private schools.

Predominantly flat grounds are a rarity for the area, with number 53 located on an elevated platform of enticingly level lawn, perfectly positioned for valley views and all-day-sun. The 2 hectare (5 acres approx.) estate has been divided into two separate titles – Lot 1: 2.7 acres and Lot 2: 2.2 acres. The driveway meanders from the road to arrive up at the grand turning circle, three-car garaging and abundant off-street parking.

The incredible proportions must be seen to believed, but the floorplan and seamless design have created a warm and inviting ambience, with well-connected areas perfect for family living and entertaining. The bones of the original home were solid and the design created to strongly adhere to the principles of Feng Shui; it is the selection of new materials that have taken it to the next level. Elements such as herringbone oak floors, raw steel, travertine stone pillars and schist have been used to create the special character, as well as carefully curated accoutrements including candelabra-style lights, handcrafted curtain rails and velvet drapes.

The residence offers multiple living options within the beautifully-connected spaces, including an elegant dining room that comfortably accommodates a ten seater dining table. There are two separate and intimate formal living rooms, a media room, informal dining and an exquisite bespoke kitchen with stainless benchtops, quality appliances and walk through butler’s pantry. The cleverly positioned and spacious office will suit any work from home situation. There are five super-sized bedrooms (four which lead to a balcony or courtyard) with custom built wardrobes, which are serviced by three sumptuous, newly appointed bathrooms and a powder room.

The inside flows out to expansive north-facing terraces, which step down to the vast lawns. The potager garden has been masterfully created and incorporates substantial ironbark beams, which once formed part of an Australian bridge and were craned onto the property. Drainage consideration has been given for a swimming pool and tennis court if so desired.

Those with a passion for grand luxury design will relish this incredible Coatesville estate.
