About this Holiday House

Karaka's post-and-rail fences and tree-lined avenues make for an idyllic rural setting, only 30 minutes from central Auckland when the traffic is good. Free private parking is available on site. Built for a well-known jockey and his family, the house is designed to make entertaining a breeze. The house faces north and opens on to paved outdoor living areas, with a swimming pool and subtropical garden as the centrepiece. The home's succession of semi-open plan living spaces means the house has a light, airy feel but doesn't feel too cavernous. The tiled family living area in front of a gas fire is cosy, thanks in part to its sunken floor level, which makes it feel intimate and distinct from the adjoining dining area and kitchen. Glass doors in the billiards room and in a nearby carpeted sitting room allow spaces to be closed off without feeling hemmed-in. The kitchen features cherry wood cabinetry and granite benchtops. There's a stainless steel double-door Bosch fridge and freezer, along with a pull-out fridge drawer in the island unit. There are two Bosch dishwashers -- one in the island unit and another tucked away out of sight in the generously proportioned butler's pantry. A separate media room, with specialised lighting, is just down the hall from the kitchen, as is a large study with built-in furniture. This wing of the house also contains an extremely large bedroom with enough room for a sitting area. There is also a large bathroom and a walk-in wardrobe. On the ground floor at the other end of the house is a wing with two further bedrooms, a large, designer-style bathroom and a separate toilet. Up the wrought-iron staircase, there are three further bedrooms, a large family bathroom and a separate toilet. One of the bedrooms, with an en suite and large walk-in wardrobe, adjoins a sitting room. But as idyllic as this setting is, Juan Lu is enjoying living in St Heliers, so it's time to sell her slice of the country life.
