Located at 20 Rawene Avenue in Auckland, New Zealand, this $15 million mansion looks like the kind of place where no one could ever complain about anything ever again. The serene and sleek decor brings the beautiful views of Coxs Bay inside, with concrete walls, rich earthen tones and a gluttony of balconies everywhere.

It also comes with all the amenities you could ever want, including a basalt terrace and infinity pool; a stocked scullery for catered events; an outdoor kitchen; a home theater with a built-in screen; and best of all, riparian rights to the oceanfront land a few meters below the house.
