An America’s Cup syndicate chief executive passed up the chance to rent a $25 million Remuera mansion because he didn’t fancy the view.

He wasn’t worried about the $4500 a week rent for the five bedroom, five bathroom manor, dance studio, sauna, bar, tennis court and pool.

Bayleys general manager residential Lisa Sargison said the chief executive didn’t want views of Waitemata Harbour – he preferred to see more of Rangitoto Island and the race course – “so he asked us to keep trying”.
