Extremely private on a vast 1945sqm garden estate, this beautiful single level 1910 character-villa, laden with exquisite heritage features is a once-in-a-lifetime chance to own a unique city paradise. The grand, sympathetically renovated home hides in charming English-style gardens on a sweeping expanse of flat land - a rare slice of idyllic country perfection along a tree-lined cul-de-sac in the heart of Remuera. Here is character home that's a showcase of original craftsmanship with ornate plaster ceilings throughout, by the master craftsman responsible for the Civic Theatre plasterwork. A welcoming Federation style verandah wraps around the formal entry which leads to a wide gracious hallway and four well-proportioned bedrooms. Living areas on the northern aspect open to the sun, taking in the beauty of magnificent deciduous trees and pretty perennial borders from a large entertainer's terrace. A huge, airy family living and dining space is enhanced by a practical new farmhouse-style kitchen. The walk-in pantry adds loads of storage and the original Shackleton cooker in a bricked fireplace stirs memories of old. Steps lead to sheltered outdoor dining for long, leisurely lunches by the generous pool area, plus a spacious pool house offers extra self-contained accommodation for guests/family. On the north-west corner, a bedroom with a log fire opens to a delightful garden conservatory. Parking is considerable - with double garaging, a carport for 3 cars, massive secure off-street, plus a large storage room. The house is a short walk from Upland Road village and Meadow bank Primary School. Please call Roy or Harry for viewing times or for your private inspection of this heritage country dream in the city.
