Te Rere Estate
Sink into island time at Te Rere Estate
Arrive at Te Rere Estate and let island life wash over you at one of the most exclusive and premium properties on the island. With the main house split into two areas – the main living area and the self-contained private wing, and the self-contained studio apartment adjoining the main property. The main living area is split level with the master bedroom suite upstairs offering commanding views over the water. Either side of the master bedroom are two en-suite bathrooms, two cavernous dressing rooms, each complete with cosy reading nooks. There is even a small kitchenette, with tea and coffee making facilities and a fridge to keep drinks cold.
Downstairs is the living area. The designer kitchen boasts state of the art equipment, a walk in butlers pantry and a huge amount of work space – a true entertainers delight and perfect if you choose a private in-house chef service.
Alongside the kitchen is the main lounge, with large flatscreen TV and Sky. There is an Alfresco dining area with seating for 12 and a large fireplace and next to that is the 2.6 metre deep, heated indoor pool.
Next to the kitchen is one of two convenient powder rooms and further down the hall a well-equipped office and private study. Opposite the study is the formal dining room, with seating for 10 and the billiards room with attached lounge and fireplace.
Rise and shine in paradise
Before we reach the guest wing, we find a fantastic bunk room – great for kids and families with young children, complete with two double bunks and two single bunks. At the western end of the main living area is a long corridor and art gallery that leads to the self- contained guest wing.
The guest-wing is complete with a kitchenette with tea and coffee facilities, a fridge, microwave and dishwasher. There is a small dining area and a comfortable private lounge with flat screen TV.
Off of the living area are four king-sized bedrooms each with luxury en-suite bathrooms and wonderful views over the water. On a mezzanine level above the living area you will find a pilates studio and a fifth king-sized bedroom.
Moving outside we reach the studio apartment. This is a great private space, with self-contained kitchen, large bathroom, dining area, king sized bed and private balcony.
Sip from your own private winery
Below the main house is the beating heart of the property – the winery. A dark winding staircase takes you into the secret barrel hall, where some of the finest wines spend their time gracefully maturing. At the end of the barrel hall is a tasting room/bar area with all the facilities required to entertain guests for hours. The space opens onto the lawns and the spectacular views of the sea beyond.
21 acres of private gardens and vineyards give you a lot of potential for exploring. There is an area to practice your chipping, with a small golf green and a kids playground with small zipline – perfect for the youngest members of the family.
For the more intrepid, there is a private bush walk that leads you down to the beach and a concrete track that gives the sealegs direct access to the ocean, making fishing trips easy.
This is without a doubt one of the most impressive properties on Waiheke Island and one of the most prestigious houses ever built in New Zealand.
