Positioned for impact, facing toward Lake Rotorua and the surrounding district is this distinctive and prestigious home. Affectionately known as Eagle Retreat by hundreds of guests who have stayed in residence, it exudes perfection in every way. The combined effect of oversized windows and stackers on both levels continuously shows off the home's outstanding views, and further cements its right as an entertainment mecca and host's paradise. 236sqm of expansive decking (more or less), luxury spa, a guest wing, games room complete with pool table and bar - the extra features here are extensive. Downstairs hosts the guest wing of three bedrooms, games room, a secondary kitchen and living area, laundry, bathroom and private decking. Upstairs, a designer open plan kitchen with butler's pantry, oversized laundry room, two bedrooms, bathroom and ensuite, and sumptuous living and dining areas that effortlessly connect with its grand entrance and the outdoors. Secluded and private at the end of French Place cul-de-sac, this 383sqm (approx) property stands tall on 1214sqm (more or less) of land, and commands your attention. Indoor/outdoor flow is a complete understatement here. Expect it to be extra on all levels. Needless to say, there is no need to reinforce its top location, and the rest we will save for you to view upon booking a private appointment with us.
