Ever since I was a little girl I have had a great appreciation for all things beautiful and especially a beautiful home. Every week I would eagerly flick through the pages of the local property newsletter hoping to get a peek into some of the loveliest homes in our area and the lives of the people that lived in them. I would dream about one day living in a home just like the ones on the pages and I would imagine how I would decorate each room.
While I can safely say my idea of what constitutes attractive decor has changed - more than a little - since then (a horse themed bedroom is now out of the question!) I can tell you that enjoying lovely homes is one pleasure I will never grow out of.
This beauty is currently for sale just north of Auckland for a mere $8m(!)...with eight bedrooms and eight bathrooms, 11m ceilings in the main living area and a solid schist feature wall, three separate wings (a master suite, a gym/office/study and a children's wing ), a library, home theatre, enormous wine cellar , six car garaging and 25m pool with an amazing pool house, this is one home I'd never want to leave...
What can I say, I'm a sucker for accent lighting! Simply stunning!
The amazing pool...
All the outdoor entertaining space a girl could dream of!
Every home needs a fabulous water feature!
It had me a 'Hello'!
'Great Room'/Living Room
Check out that amazing high stud ceiling...and the decor *swoon*
Omg, I have that coffee table - but in white!!
I love that while this home is undoubtedly huge, it doesn't feel too 'grand'...
I'm loving the relaxed nature of the decor...mmm rattan chairs...
Can't you just imagine cooking up a storm in here, glass of Vino in hand??
Study a.k.a man cave
My husband would love one of these! While I'm actually not
usually a huge fan of theatre rooms I do like the look of this one!
Master Bath a.k.a pure bliss

Now that's one fabulous dream home! Do you agree? What homes are currently floating through your dreams? I'd love to see them!
