The Swiss architect Peter Zumthor once said that if you're lucky, and a building succeeds, the real product has many more dimensions than you can ever imagine. You have the sun, the light, the rain, the birds, the feel. This home is the perfect mix of Kiwi lifestyle and European elegance and the union of the two creates something very special. The Kiwiana aspect is most visible in the villa's stunning turn-of-the-century exterior that is so loved by New Zealanders and, the European influences are very visible in the architectural extension and interior modernisation shaped by architect Andrew Greenslade. When combined, the result is a stunning blend of functionality and style. There are four sizeable bedrooms and two stunning bathrooms and the living with its high ceilings and windows all around opening the room up enormously giving it plenty of natural light, making it the heart of the home, especially in the winter when the open fireplace is factored into the equation. The entertainer's kitchen is absolutely gorgeous and perfectly designed for the 21st century visionary who loves food and loves to cook! The interior opens onto a stunning outside area that is perfectly designed for social occasions or simply roasting marshmallows with the kids on the outdoor fireplace. The harmoniously designed indoor/outdoor flow of the home only adds to the overall charm of this period home. The home has spectacular westerly views towards the vista of the Auckland CBD. On top of this, the home also sits comfortably within the Double Grammar zone and within walking distance of Parnell Primary. Eight Stanwell Street is also only moments away from renowned Parnell cafes and restaurants, offering delicious options for lazy Friday dinners or Saturday brunches. The French Farmers Market is just around the corner and the Parnell Baths are down the road. Do not deliberate on this one as it will not be on the market for long!
