A prominent west face of mirrored glass reflects the mood of the skies above, leaving visitors under no illusion that this house offers a serious statement in design. The street appeal is distinctive & intriguing you will love living here. Set in one of Auckland's finest suburbs, this Noel Lane architectural creation is seated prominently in an elevated north-west facing location situated at 7 Spencer St, Remuera (just off the ridge from Victoria Avenue). Originally constructed during the 1980s & known as Plimmer House the current owners involved Noel again in 2008 to further alter & enhance the home. Internally the easy floor plan works exceptionally well. The basement level features generous garaging with easy access to the lift, a wine cellar and storage areas. With a striking sense of arrival you'll love the soaring roof, as you take in a sculpture-like mix of materials. Floating above is a bridge at mezzanine level, which separates the master suite from the other bedrooms. The mid-level provides a connection from entry to study & multiple living areas, which flows seamlessly to the north poolside area, whilst each room still retains its individual sense of space. With the multiple living areas, a sunken lounge, feature dining atrium & separate open plan kitchen & additional informal living & dining areas, along with a separate laundry the house provides great family function. The upper level provides a bedroom layout, which ensures the kids have their privacy & the master is quite separate, so the adults have theirs too. Outside areas have been cleverly landscaped & feature an extensive lawn as well as a beautifully paved terrace to the east, which wraps around the north (pool-side) & extends to a beautiful elevated western deck set high above the street & perfectly positioned to enjoy the last of the evening sun. In zone for Victoria Avenue Primary and Remuera Intermediate, it is also zoned for the Grammar schools. This property will be, for some, the ideal solution you have been looking for in a market starved of uniqueness & less ordinary designed homes. A really significant piece of art to live in & love.
