New Zealand has long been desired by many as a clean, green, beautiful place to live. With rolling green hills and acres of untouched land there is an abundance of places to build luxury real estate. New Zealand boasts around 15,000km’s of coastline and much of it is pristine and untouched. Whilst a lot of it will stay that way, there are still some amazing spots to build luxurious homes overlooking some of the world’s most amazing beaches, lakes and harbours. Here are a few of the top spots:
Waiheke Island – Auckland.
If you enjoy the city life as well as the peace and tranquillity that rural living offers, then Waiheke Island in Auckland’s Hauraki Gulf could be the place for you. Some of New Zealand’s top luxury real estate can be found all over the island. Beautiful homes are hidden away in private bays only accessible by boat while some homes overlook the beautiful Oneroa beach and are only a short walk from cafe’s and top restaurants. Waiheke also plays host to a number of New Zealand’s top wineries. All of this is on offer and Auckland City is only a 30 minute ferry ride away.
Two hour’s drive south of Auckland is the famed Coromandel Peninsula. Home to some amazing beaches and luxury real estate in New Zealand, the Coromandel has become a favourite playground for Kiwis and tourists alike. With a number of beaches to choose from, there are many waterfront luxury homes and stunning sections on Coromandel’s east and west coasts. Whangamata and Whitianga are the larger of the beach towns with shopping centres and cafes. However there are secluded options all over the Coromandel boasting some absolutely stunning views.
North Shore – Auckland.
Auckland’s North Shore lays claim to some of Auckland’s more expensive and luxurious properties. Right on the waterfront of Takapuna beach and the surrounding cliffs, this stunning setting offers the advantage of being 10 minutes drive from the city while being absolute waterfront in one of Auckland’s hottest locations. Just around the corner from Takapuna lies Devonport, a popular spot for fine dining and drinking establishments. Devonport home owners tend to keep the character of their luxury villas intact and some amazing refurbished homes are on offer. A short walk to Devonport shops, one of Auckland’s artistic hubs, is a great day out for the whole family. The North Shore peninsula combines city living and a luxury waterfront lifestyle for people on the go who also enjoy the finer things in life.
Queenstown – Jacks Point.
In arguably one of the most picturesque settings in the world, Jacks Point is nestled on the edge of Lake Wakatipu and not only offers waterfront living but also spectacular views of the Southern Alps. This prime luxury real estate is highly sought after and is not just a location but a lifestyle. The Jacks Point golf club is an exclusive 18 hole resort course located within the village, which includes a restaurant attached to the clubhouse. Residents can enjoy fine dining while taking in the wonderful scenery. If it’s a relaxed or an action packed lifestyle you’re after, Queenstown has it all and Jacks Point is the perfect spot for luxury real estate in New Zealand.
