It might be best known for its sprawling family homes, lush lawns and grand estates, but Herne Bay is about to become the city’s hottest spot for luxe apartment living.
With 28 luxury apartments across five levels, the development has been carefully crafted with the discerning buyer in mind, and is perfectly positioned for enjoying all that inner central living has to offer. As well as being close to the city, Ponsonby’s dining and retail strip and the city beaches that run almost the length of Herne Bay’s northern slopes, it offers a premium pad to call your own that hits the sweet spot between luxury, liveability and lock-and-leave.
Synergy Development group is the visionary company behind the Jervois & Lawrence brand. They acknowledged early on that those looking to purchase in Herne Bay and its surrounds expect nothing less than the very best, and what they have created is exactly that. Designed by renowned architect Colin Leuschke and his team from Leuschke Group Architects, the development sits high on an elevated ridgeline in order to take full advantage of the property’s stellar harbour views. There is a range of one, two and three-bedroom apartments available, plus stunning penthouses for those that like to truly live life at the top.
Many of the apartments face north-west and look out over the harbour in order to best take advantage of the classic fiery sunsets that Auckland does so well, with some sporting generous balconies so that entertaining is a must. Others have stylish ‘winter rooms’ that can be used year round – just throw them open to enjoy your coffee in the morning sun, then cleverly close them in when the weather shifts. Also in the complex are a selection of private garden apartments nestled behind leafy courtyards, and more urban-style offerings that face Jervois Road and its bustling, ever-changing vibe.
To provide ample light and airflow as well as create a strong point of focus for residents, a central atrium rises through the core of the building with a carefully landscaped Japanese garden at its base.
A true sense of timelessness has been cleverly nurtured through the use of a concrete with stone cladding shell to reflect the gravitas and stature of the building, which is destined to become a key touch point for all those that traverse the Jervois strip.
The interiors are the work of Herne Bay resident Stewart Harris of Macintosh Harris, a designer closely associated with some of the city’s most premium builds. Each apartment features a highly spec’d Italian-inspired kitchen, with appliances from German legends of style and performance, Gaggenau.
Foodies will appreciate little details like induction cook tops as standard, whilst penthouse apartments come with luxury upgrades whilst both kitchen and living spaces are set with herringbone wooden floors to create a sense of timeless elegance underfoot.
It goes without saying that no box remains unticked, including the fact that all apartments come with storage facilities in the basement and ample car parking for effortless living in one of the city’s most attractive new developments. Jervois & Lawrence epitomises quality and permanence, as befits its location in one of Auckland’s most sought-after suburbs.
