North Shore Golf Club members now have a brand new third fairway as a result of land being developed for premium residential homes right by the golf course.
Twenty-one sites have recently been released as part of stage two of this development. Six of these have already been sold in addition to the 10 sold during stage one.
The gated community is made up of 31 lots in all. All the homes will either face the golf courses third fairway or the picturesque council-owned esplanade reserve that leads to Lucas Creek. Either way the outlook is special.
The 3rd Fairway project started eight years ago for the three Vincent brothers Richard, Chris and Andrew, who are developing the site. They are passionate about the project which has involved the planting of 12,000 new native plants, enhancing the lovely stream that is full of eels and birdlife.
“For golfers we believe this is paradise, but it also ticks a number of other boxes as well for families,” says Richard Vincent, who has been the driving force behind the project. It’s his baby. “It is a very special environment – like living in a park – but with some of Auckland’s very best schools close by. These include Kristin School as well as Albany Junior and Senior Highs.
“With sections still available from 550 square metres through to 2200 square metres, purchasers have a great choice as well. It is called 3rd Fairway because it was formed from the old third hole and fairway and the new owners can have a grandstand position looking northwards over the picturesque new fairway that has been created by international course designer Grant Puddingcombe.”
There is no doubt that 3rd Fairway will appeal to golfers, being located beside what is probably the best 27 holes in the country. It will also appeal to those who are looking for a lifestyle that includes benefits such as security, safety, belonging and tranquility. Bush walks will be at their doorsteps.
“Stage one is completely sold out and we are not expecting stage two sites to stay around too long either,” adds Richard Vincent. “This is a unique opportunity for those in the market to secure a superb site in a premium subdivision and build their very own architectural masterpiece to fit in with the beautiful natural environment.”
