About this listing
Set in the panoramic foothills of the protected Waitakere Ranges, this imposing Swiss Chalet was designed to offer breath-taking bush views and multi-million-dollar sunsets viewable from above the trees. Where else in the world can you find a six double bedroom Swiss chalet with a massive 100 sqm of decks (mostly above the treeline!) and magnificent balconies flowing out from living areas or bedrooms through mega ranch sliders on three levels of a home towards an unchanging, uninterrupted, private vista?

This solidly-built retreat in one of the best scenic streets of swanky Swanson, comes not just with extensive views, high-quality chattels and wonderful character, but also with enviable history. For years, it was home to "The Fiery Kiwi" Barry Butterworth, who was inducted into the NZ Speedway Hall Of Fame as World Quarter Mile Midge Champion, NZ Sprintcar Champion and three times NZ Midget Car Racing Champion.

Located in a magical semi-rural setting, in a harmonious neighbourhood, on an easy maintenance 800 sqm section, this stunning masterpiece was lovingly crafted for the rich and successful to entertain guests with fabulous outdoor wining and dining, lazy relaxation and luxurious sunbathing.

After a long hectic day at work, you will come home to paradise and feel your spirits lift in its high, soul-lifting, colonial ceilings. Your serenity will be broken only by birdsong as you wander barefoot in its back lawn to catch the morning dew. Yet, you're just a quick drive away from all modern metropolitan amenities and the world-famous West Coast beaches.

With interest rates at record lows, you no longer need to be rich to live this dream. You can even cordon off the ground floor (with its own private easy access from the back door) to board a family downstairs to help pay your mortgage.

But this rare opportunity has come to the market only once before in the last quarter century, so be quick! Grab your paradise before it is GONE!!
