Murdoch Riley's Summer House
Raumati South 201A Rosetta Road
About This PropertyDiscover a unique and elevated beachfront home paying homage to the 70s.
For the first time in half a century, this property is on the market and was built for one of New Zealand's music industry legends; this 210sqm* single-level Lockwood house stands out like his remarkable career.
The heart of the house is the vast open-plan interior centrepiece lovingly named "the courtyard." Its year-round indoor-outdoor lifestyle made it perfect for entertaining friends and family, with parties from the courtyard to the garden and down to the beach filled with laughter and joy.
It sits on a leafy 1214sqm* section with Kapiti Island views and a private, unspoiled garden adjacent to the beach.
Enter the long drive leading to this four-bedroom home with an internal double garage, storeroom, and wine cellar.
While largely original, the overhead glazing flooding the courtyard with natural light was replaced two years ago, and a second bathroom was added in the 1990s. The single-level layout revolves around the courtyard, featuring three bedrooms, bathrooms, an office on one side, and the kitchen, formal lounge, fourth bedroom/office, and separate laundry on the other. The main bedroom enjoys an ensuite and an adjacent study or library with lovely views.
Adding to its unique character, an ancient rubber tree thrives alongside one of the ceiling beams, with sliding doors leading to the secluded seaward garden and flat lawn. Here, you can enjoy barbecuing and basking in the sea views.
Own a piece of music history and experience the joy of beachfront living.
