Bringing A New Level Of Luxury To Matakana
Wake up in privacy just a stone's throw (1 hour drive) from Auckland CBD and 1 hour 30 minutes from Auckland International Airport. Perfect for a beachside ‘staycation’ with the family, or an executive retreat with colleagues, to escape the board room and get creativity flowing.
Bluestone Estate offers space for up to 16 in a stunning villa, overlooking an infinity pool, spa pool, sunken trampoline and petanque court, combined with unbelievable spaces to enjoy time together incorporating the surrounding landscape at every turn. Spend time exploring the exquisite local wineries, or have them come to you and host a private tasting of the best local drops in the private wine cellar.
The Main house
This beautiful new home with a ‘Hamptons meets New Zealand’ theme combines luxury with a relaxed style. The vaulted ceiling living room boasts a floor to ceiling South Island grey stone fireplace, perfect for cozy evening gatherings, while the large TV room with its big super comfy chaise sofa provides the instant warmth of a gas fire.
Bi-fold doors line the open plan dining and living space overlooking the infinity pool and Matakana estuary with picture-postcard views to Mount Tamahanga.
The state of the art kitchen boasting a butler’s pantry equipped with a Liebherr wine fridge and an impressive Italian espresso machine, opens wide with bi-fold windows to outdoor dining.
Sleeping up to 16, there are five bedrooms plus the pool house which can become a bedroom, each with their own Moroccan tiled ensuite. The TV and sofa in the loft bunk room makes it a great space for kids, teens or grown-ups to have their own space when the need arises!
The Boat House & Shepherd's Hut
Currently only available for Corporate Retreats, Events, and long-term ‘The Lot’ Stays.
For a rustic, luxury experience for up to 4 people, this fully private adjacent dwelling just above the main house can be rented separately or provide additional accommodation for larger groups or retreats.
Styled on an American mid-western barn, the Boat House has been re-purposed into a luxury open plan living space with a loft bedroom and a quirky shepherd’s hut as the second bedroom. Cathedral ceilings with skylights and a north-facing deck with a stunning view makes the Boat House a sunny, happy space, perfect for relaxing and unwinding.
Waterside Seclusion Just A Stones’ Throw From Auckland
Sinking into the tranquility of the pool, with a glass of Brick Bay Vineyard’s 2019 Vintage Rosé is a summer scene hard to beat. Walk, hop on an e-bike or take a boat up the river to marvellous Matakana with its famous Farmers Market, organic cafes, restaurants, pubs and uniquely kiwi surf culture. Spectacular Tawhanui and Omaha surf beaches are close by, along with some of the region's best wineries and sculpture trails.It's about experiencing life as a kiwi local and fully immersing yourself and your family in the slow paced, 'off the beaten track' life of Matakana.
