Harcourts Luxury Property Selection Lists Home That Housed New Zealand MasterChefs for over NZ$8.8million

The New Zealand mansion that housed contestants for four seasons of the MasterChef cooking series has been listed with Harcourts International’s elite property brand Luxury Property Selection, for over $NZ8.8 million.

The 1000 square metre property named ‘Casa Del Mar’ after it’s beautiful sea view position, features nine bedrooms, five bathrooms, two kitchens and a 22 metre solar heated swimming pool. The property has two wings, with the second wing of the property being redesigned by famous New Zealand architect, Richard Priest.

“Casa Del Mar is the ultimate luxury property in New Zealand. It’s perfect for entertaining with its large landscaped tropical gardens, outdoor dining area and outdoor fire place,” said Harcourts luxury property specialist Claire Grey.

“The property is in such a great location too. The North Shore has a coastline of 141 kilometres with stunning beaches, a scintillating night life, five star restaurants and plenty of great shopping centres. There are superb schools with colleges excelling in academic, sporting, arts and community areas. It’s a great area to bring up a family,” Ms Grey said.

The property also features a gym, sauna and massage room, a 20 person spa, five fire places, two laundries and a library. In addition, there is a large home theatre and an entertainment room for functions that holds 250 people. A gas fireplace specially designed for sitting around and toasting marshmallows is a unique feature of the property.

Aimee Williams, Harcourts International Brand Manager said, “The home photographs so beautifully, in addition to being leased for Masterchef, it was also leased for New Zealand’s Top Model series, the Discovery Channel, and a Disney series pilot. We have no doubt our luxury property specialists will be able to find an owner to appreciate its mesmerizing and iconic views of the harbor.”
