High on a prestigious northern slopes street, this beautiful family home reigns quietly over majestic views to the Auckland Museum and Hauraki Gulf. She was built c.1920 and resounds with the craftsmanship and character of yesteryear.
In the heart of the Grammar Zone (Auckland Grammar and Epsom Girls) and zoned for both Vicky Ave and Remuera Primaries, the 751m2 property boasts the feel of country living. Yet it's the perfect base for a city family, 5 minutes to the CBD, just a short walk to the shops of Newmarket and moments to Bloodworth Park, with the popular Shore Road caf on your doorstep.
Sweep back into a gentler era as you enter the handsome oak panelled foyer with its original newel post light intact. Ground floor living areas flow from a magnificent large formal entertaining lounge warmed in winter by a log fire through elegant leadlight doors to a separate dining room, kitchen, music room and office. There are spaces for every purpose - even an original box room. A sunny area off the dining room steps out to a deck overlooking the lower lawn that offers potential for further development room for a pool.
Upstairs, 4 bedrooms include a generous master bedroom that opens to a verandah enjoying panoramic vistas across the Hauraki Gulf. A spacious granny flat on the lower level offers a range of possibilities - it could be another bedroom suite or games rooms. There's plentiful parking in a double carport and a single internal access garage. This grand home with heart and soul takes you back in time, offering plenty of potential in a convenient address.
Such homes are rare make haste to be sure you're in with a chance.
