Renowned architect and teacher, the late Claude Megson, originally from Whangarei, designed this 1970's, elevated masterpiece which is situated on 10.8ha, (in two titles) looking west over Whangarei Harbour and less than 15 minutes from the Whangarei CBD. Over time and between 2008 and 2011, the house has gone through major rebuild and modernization, keeping the integrity of the designer and staying true to the original design concept of the modular hexagonal rooms. This masterpiece is a combination of intimate inter-related spaces, planned with family use in mind. The 500sqm three level home consists of four lounges, five bedrooms, four bathrooms, two ensuites, which includes one self-contained flat, and separate sleeping quarters, a Dutch barn and a large double garage. The modern kitchen takes in the expansive water views and lies adjacent to the dining area and concrete patio. Floor to ceiling glass windows and doors open to the decks and patios which grabs all day sun. Enjoy watching life on the water, splendid sunsets or listen to the myriad of native birds. Across the road, launch your kayak in the Whangarei Harbour Marine Reserve or drive to the nearby ramps for your fishing or diving quota. The attention to detail, the high quality materials, fixtures and fittings have been used through out and the attention to detail is immediately apparent.
Completely private the elevated house is surrounded by native bush, landscaped gardens and supporting a concrete outdoor pool, and starting with security gates and concrete driveway leading up through the mature native bush. The spectacular outlook is an ever changing panorama that will never cease to amaze, from sunrise to sunset.
Native bush that covers most of the property offers many delightful bushwalks past mature totara, rimu, puriri, kowhai and our resident bird population of over 28 species including tuis, fantails, waxeyes, woodpigeons, parakeets and moreporks. Enjoy the many flowering kowhai that brighten the bush in the spring and attract these birds.
