Hidden Charm

Eight years ago fortune smiled on the English owners of this pretty private home. If it was not for three little boys the owners of this romantic house would be staying put

You will see why.

Beyond the gate, through the sheltered courtyard, is a graceful villa perfectly situated for north west indoor outdoor living. Perhaps you want a Nanny to live-in' in the downstairs area. This rather rare offering will surely touch someone's heart. Beautiful to live in now with shutters, whitney windows and French doors, but potential for further renovation could make this centrally heated home shutterly fabulous'!

The upper floor is informal and formal living separated by beautiful glass paned pine doors that allow uplifting light to dance throughout the spaces.

French doors and whitney windows beg to always be thrown open even in the winter.

Two bedrooms and a brand new bathroom are on this level.
Up a flight of stairs is a shuttered retreat for Mummy and Daddy.

Downstairs is a good sized ground floor ensuited bedroom which has a luscious sense of being surrounded by the easily maintained garden. The laundry, the study and a wine cellar are all on this level. There is direct access to the clothes line and a perfect pitch for cricket or trikes.

High above the valley, Bell Road is a street of little turnover situated just off Arney Road that is zoned for Victoria Avenue Primary, double Grammar Schools and close to the University, Hospital and wonderful Remuera private schools.

The home is down a secluded right of way and sited on a flat shared lane.

Agent Reviews

Christine & Simon Hart

It gives me great pleasure to write in support of the excellent work done by Lesley McLellan for my husband and I in the recent marketing and sale of our home of 30 years overlooking Hobson Bay in Parnell. We had previously engaged the services of a high profile agent from another real estate agency in endeavour to sell both our properties together on the same site in Tohunga Crescent. After a few months we had had no success. Lesley came to us with a proposition which involved selling the large and small houses separately. She had done extremely thorough research and demonstrated in that meeting that she knew her real estate in the area and had all the statistics. We agreed to her proposition and she ended up selling both houses in concert with her business partner, Juliet Lichtenstein in the space of a very short time. We were delighted with the respected outcomes.

After relocating to Auckland we were looking for a new home in Parnell or Remuera. Lesley offered as a great service guiding us through the Auckland property market, finding us several offers that met our needs and finally enabling us successfully to conclude an off market transaction avoiding therefore the hassle of a public auction/tender. We very much appreciated Lesley's patience, her confidentiality, her capability to listen and understand our specific needs, her real estate insight, her relentless search for the appropriate object, her thoughtful guidance through the negotiations and the care for details when closing the deal. We clearly enjoyed working with Lesley and can only recommend her highly.

Hi Ladies just wanted to catch up and say well done on an amazing result at last weeks auction. Having that amount of strong interest was perfect. Your vendors were ready for a normal predictable result and that meant that the actual result was even more amazing! You delivered them a Lotto level win. Personally that was the most enjoyable auction I've ever called. We've had so many where its been a real privilege being involved in lovely people getting life changing sums of money and this was that and much more. Special thanks also to Paul for keeping the buyers in rhythm and participating. Great team work there, something we can do more of. Might be time to make the most of some strong spotter calls. As always an amazing team effort. Loved it! Thanks for letting me be involved!

We have loved working with you both. It has been nice working with an agent whom we can fully trust and whose experience was evident. You remembered what we were after and looked out for that property for us, through to selling our property with professionalism and integrity. We have investment properties and my Father is looking at selling his house and we have no trouble recommending Lesley and Juliet.

I chose Lesley McLellan as an agent not only because she was pleasent to deal with and had extensive experience in the real estate industry but also because of her intelligent, analytical approach. From the initial presentation she was able to demonstrate a strong grasp of the market and a clear understanding of the house with meticulous feedback and sound advice. Lesley worked in tandem with Juliet Lichtenstein. Their good working relationdahip and strong teamwork was an added bonus. With both agents fully knowledgable about the property and committed to a sale, I felt I was getting "two for the price of one." On a more practical level, it meant that open homes could run longer if necessary because one person was able to stay on with potential buyers while the other moved on to other commitments. I found Lesley to be hardworking, flexible and happy to go the extra mile. Her ongoing communication with me throughout the sale process was prompt, meaningful and helpful. I was enormously grateful for her support and practical advice when problems with the house were discovered just as it was about to go on the market. With her help I was able to make the right decisions and get the best possible outcome.

We were interested in a property that Lesley McLellan & Juliet Lichtenstein were the agents for. As purchasers, we were impressed by the professional approach that they took. All information was either provided or made available promptly. There were a number of difficulties associated with the purchase, including discussions and agreement for future actions by a neighbouring property owner. Lesley & Juliet helped to facilitate the discussions with all parties and assisted in us achieving a suitable outcome. Overall they made the purchase process simple, with clear documentation and timely process.

Sue & Brian Cooper

Lesley McLellan and Juliet Lichtenstein worked quickly and hard to get the right people through our house. They were responsive and communicated progress well so that we always knew what was happening. They always did what they said would do. We had a great result and would recommend them to any potential seller.

My former neighbours recommended Lesley McLellan to me. Lesley and Juliet marketed my home for sale beautifully. They were so helpful, knowledgeable and went out of their way to facilitate a successful sale of my home. They were always available when I needed to ask them about the process; they made me feel calm and reassured. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Lesley and Juliet.

Recently, Lesley McLellan sold our house at 84A Bassett Road Remuera. Despite the fact that Lesley stood in only briefly for another agent who was on annual leave, she managed to secure a sale for the property at an excellent price within just a few days. Lesley took a methodical approach to the project which included performing an analysis of sale prices in the street. This enabled us as the Vendors to set a benchmark for the value of our property. Lesley presents well and has a courteous and business-like style. I would have no hesitation in recommending Lesley to prospective clients and would be happy to discuss this further by phone or email. Regards John Sherwood

Now that our offer on 77 shore Road, Remuera has become 'Unconditional', we wish to express our sincere thanks to you. From the first time we met you, you were dedicated to finding the right property for us. You provided relevant property information and allowed us time to work through properties viewed. You were never "pushy" and because of that, we felt very confident working with you. I know the negotiation process for Shore Road was on-going for a couple of weeks ... however, it was your support and patience with Tony and I, and, your negotiation skills and willingness to negotiate the Commission Rate for the Vendor that helped our offer to be accepted. We thank you You are extremely professional with a non-threatening and genuine personality; we would have no hesitation recommending you to anyone whom is active in the property market. We wish you continuing success Lesley.

Trevor Fell

Dear Lesley 77 Shore Road, Remuera. Sept 2012 What can I say about the way you worked? You just had two open homes and yet you put in a huge effort and brought an offer to me. It still took a lot of of work to get together but you did not give up or let the buyer go away from my property. You really worked it. You kept in touch with me with weekly written reports you dropped off on a Monday night. I never had written reports from another agent. You left me cards every time after the open homes so I knew haw many people had been through as soon as I got back to my home. You always rang me as you left to say I could have my house back too. You were totally diferent to the other agent who had the exclusive listing. So thank you for working like this for me. Your faithfully Trevor Fell

We first met Lesley McLellan when I rang her and arranged a time to view a property (which we bought). From the outset she was open, honest and accommodating. She was also very careful not to tell porkies. She also repeatedly checked for accurate information when we asked questions. Also of importance, she impressed us with her confident appraisal of the market and our house for sale. We had been trying to sell our house under another agent for 3 months and felt opportunities were not being grasped. The other agent was showing signs of giving up. Not Lesley! Lesley boldly remarketed our home with an excellent campaign, which resulted after much hard work and negotiation in a sale. It wasn't easy but that didn't seem to deter her. A woman of deep grace and integrity - I thoroughly recommend her to whoever reads this testimony.
