A Victoria Avenue icon is set to change hands after 28 years and it's happening soon. The promise of things to come is signaled from the moment you enter the ample reception lobby with its kauri staircase, deep skirtings, figured architraves, native timber floors and leadlight windows. An elegant drawing room with swags, chandelier, bay windows and traditional fireplace affords a formal venue for entertaining guests. Gather for dinner parties in the separate dining room or convert to a sixth bedroom or playroom. The well-appointed kitchen is an inclusive family hub featuring granite counters, a walk-in pantry, island bench with second sink and Miele and Gaggenau appliances. Further informal dining and living areas spill out onto the lush gardens for summer time celebrations. Additional ground floor rooms include an office and guest bathroom.
Upper floors have beautiful views with 5 double bedrooms and a family bathroom with Kohler spa bath and underfloor heating. The master bedroom has a walk-in wardrobe and lovely ensuite with under floor heating.
The fourth level attic conversion reveals a versatile sunlit space with views to Rangitoto and the Waitemata Harbour. This could be a 5th bedroom, guest retreat, kids' rumpus or superb office to cater for those who work from home. The attic level also has approximately 40sqm of useful storage space.
A double garage accessed from Chatfield Place has new carpeting which has created a warm dry multi-purpose space, ideal for a home gym. Basement storage, a laundry, and a Bonaire furnace that powers the gas fired central heating deals to the practicalities of this character home. In zone for Victoria Ave Primary School and very close to Auckland's top private schools, shops, motorway ramps and all amenities Remuera Village has to offer. Have no doubt, this quality of home rarely comes on the market so be quick!
