ANOTHER REMUERA HOME SOLD BY STEVE KOERBER


67 Portland Road

Remuera, Auckland

Sold - 22.03.2024

Marketed by Steve Koerber & Nila Koerber

Admired by passers-by and cherished by the current owners for the last twenty-six blissful summers, the time has finally come for a new family to enjoy the magnetic charm of Pear Tree Cottage.

Distinctive and instantly appealing, this 1920s black Kauri weatherboard home rests in a glorious sylvan setting upon an elevated 1259sqm rectangular section. Over the last 100 years the home has expanded upwards and outwards to comfortably accommodate more children and larger gatherings. No longer 'just' a cottage; the floor area now exceeds 300sqm excluding the garage. There are four bedrooms plus a cosy study (five bedrooms if you need them).

Hidden from and positioned quietly away from the road, the architect Carnachan-designed rear extension is light-filled and invites casual open-plan kitchen/dining and living. From here, looking directly north, the view of the Harbour and Devonport is spectacular. The adjoining decks and patio enjoy all-day sun and allow you to keep a watchful eye on children in the pool and yard.

Back inside, the large formal lounge offers a timeless retreat, and the formal dining room is perfect for hosting dinner parties late into the night. The morning after you can retreat to read quietly in the bespoke office/library, stroll mindfully in the beautiful gardens, or de-stress in the sauna downstairs.

The location is undeniably sought-after and convenient. Just a 400m stroll to Kings School, and within easy reach of top schools including Remuera Primary, St Kents, Dio, St Cuths, and both Grammar schools. Newmarket, Mount Hobson, and the revitalised Remuera Village are nearby too.

Lovers of character homes who seek location, views and privacy will appreciate the uniqueness of this opportunity. Unleash your creative flair and reap the significant benefits of a sympathetic renovation - either now or later.
