New Zealand's most expensive homes for sale
If you feel like staring out the window and day-dreaming about a Lotto win and perhaps a new house, here's some inspiration. Although you'll need to win big.
Which one would you choose if you had the spare cash?
1. Orakei, Auckland
On the market for $13,000,000, this city-fringe home has five bedrooms, six bathrooms and a grandstand view of the Waitemata Harbour and Hauraki Gulf. The property also has a pool, spa, a high stud with floor to ceiling windows, and four-car-garaging.
2. Church Bay, Waiheke Island
For a mere $23,000,000 you can grab yourself a slice of island life. As well as a six-bedroom, seven-bathroom house, here you'll get an indoor swimming pool, home theatre and an established, 2.4 hectare vineyard.
3. Russell, Northland
Moojebing Park Estate is for sale for $10,000,000. The offering includes three houses, two cottages, a boat ramp, jetty, two helipads, an indoor heated swimming pool and spa, and a tennis court - all set on 135 hectares of private coastal land.
4. Castor Bay, Auckland
It might be worth getting your extended family to help out with buying this place - after all, there is enough room for everyone. The home on Auckland's North Shore has six bedrooms - all with en suites - three lounges, one master kitchen and four half kitchens. It's on the market looking for enquiries over $10,000,000.
5. Pakatoa Island, Hauraki Gulf
Why buy a house when you could buy a whole island? Yes sure, it's $40,000,000, but you do get your very own private holiday resort that has 62 units, a golf course and three sandy white beaches.
6. Whitford, Manukau
This property in South-East Auckland has more than six bedrooms and six bathrooms, as well as a garage with room for 10 cars. The price is by negotiation, but with a CV of $9,800,000, you probably won't end up with much change from $10 million.
7. Cowes Bay, Waiheke Island
This might very well be New Zealand's most expensive property for sale right now - a 36 hectare (88 acre) estate on the eastern side of Waiheke, on the market for $35,000,000. Spread out over 1114-square-metres, the eight-bedroom, six-bathroom home won't leave you wanting for much more.
8. Takapuna, Auckland
This property has a CV of $8,200,000, but in the Auckland market, who knows what it could sell for. The home has five bedrooms and six bathrooms, and there is even a garage for the Sealegs that opens right onto the beach.
9. Orakei, Auckland
It may not look like much, but it's all about the location, location, location, which has provided this property with a price tag of $8,800,000. Built in 1924, the home has four bedrooms and two bathrooms and this is the first time it has been on the market since 1968.
10. Queenstown, Otago
The only property in the South Island brave enough to share its high-end asking price is this four-bedroom, three-bathroom home in Central Otago. On the market for $8,000,000, it overlooks Lake Hayes and underwent an extensive interior refurbishment in 2005.
