Brothers and sisters, we can all rest easy today, because the two broadcasters who epitomise white privilege more than a hand-job in a Maserati while listening to Kenny G, Mike Hosking and Kate Hawkesby, have managed to find a new mansion to call home…
Hosking and Hawkesby have bought a country property in Matakana
Following the sale of their Remuera mansion for $9.6 million, broadcasters Mike Hosking and Kate Hawkesby have bought a lifestyle block in Matakana.
Records show the couple paid $4.5 million for a modern, 297 square-metre, four-bedroom home on 5.54 hectares of rolling countryside. The 2017 RV for the house is $2.7 million.
The Bayleys listing said the house was built in 2017 and “engineered to high-end specifications by Waller Projects”.
Special features of the house include dark-stained cedar cladding on the exterior, and a huge family living area with 6m-high exposed trusses, solid American oak floors, shuttered windows and a magnificent fireplace. The top-of-the-line kitchen has a butler’s pantry, sensor lighting, three refrigerators, top-end appliances and marble benchtops.
…that’s right folks, after making a non taxed capital gain of several million for flipping their last luxury home, Mike & Kate finally have a 297 square-metre gold plated cottage to call their very own.
I know you, like I, had been having sleepless nights wondering where Mike & Kate could possibly find a home, what with the 50 000 odd homeless and families living in cars, how would they manage in todays crazy and over inflated property bubble?
Well, we can all rest easy and hug our children and pets a little less tightly this weekend in the safe knowledge that two of the least deserving amongst us are tucked up warm and dry in a smug wasteland of narcissism and wealth that would make anyone with a conscience vomit.
