It's becoming rare for a home of this scale and grandeur in the central suburbs with unobstructed sea and city views to remain intact on such a huge portion of land. But that's what makes this captivating 536m2, 5-bedroom 1920s classic on a substantial 961m2 garden so very special. During the 39 years they've lived here on the northern, seaward side of Martin Ave, the owners have lavished this exceptionally quiet, private & sheltered home with attention, meticulously updating and expanding to accommodate their family's changing requirements. Great care has been taken to enhance the original while melding the changes perfectly with the period architecture. The warm, gas centrally heated home sits elevated on the brow of a hill, to the rear of an expansive, leafy, manicured garden that makes it feel especially grand. From the huge entry and elegant light-filled central stairway lined in herringbone parquet floors, generous living and dining areas face due north, opening to a sun soaked terrace and infinity pool/spa whose waters merge with the gleaming Basin below. Views reach over the city and Orakei Basin to Rangitoto. Through the large laundry, an enormous 4 car garaging was added and a large separate apartment with views above is the perfect guest/teen retreat or spacious work from home office quarters. Well-proportioned bedrooms upstairs provide huge storage. Several gain impressive sea views. There is an office at the entry and another on the upper level plus 3.5 bathrooms. Space in the roof eaves has been well-utilised for capacious storage. A beautiful family home where compromise has not been considered, now invites your own transformation. Your early inspection is encouraged. CV $5,200,000.
