Asking Price $6,500,000
In 1926 William Gummer, of the renowned Architects Gummer & Ford, celebrated the completion of 'Stoneways', designed by him as a showpiece of his talent - and his own home. One of only 14 private homes that he designed during his career and featured in most books on Auckland architecture, it has remained timeless, as a classic, almost 100 years on. To own this home is a privilege; to be a part of its enduring legacy for the next 100 years of contemporary living is an experience that the new owner will relish.
Over the last four years, significant upgrades to the interiors have been carried out. The kitchen, butler's pantry and service areas have been completed - the result are spaces with a style and finish that reference the past yet remain at the front of modern interior design and usability. The master bedroom suite is better than most well known London hotels - it cocoons you in style and quality, whilst being absolutely in keeping with Stoneway's unique 'Jazz Age' aesthetic.
Now it is your opportunity to finish this rebirth of an architectural icon. If you are a lover of art, object and furniture of any period, then this home with its perfectly proportioned rooms and spaces will provide the perfect backdrop. The Georgian revival style of Gummer's architecture will never date.
