The NZ Design Review of May 1949 described renowned architect Vernon Brown's design of this as "a truly New Zealand home in which everyone would wish to be a guest, if he cannot be the owner". After a 21-year tenure, extensive and sympathetic additions by architect Malcolm Deighton - you are now invited not as a guest, but the proud owner of this prime northern slopes residence.
Artfully occupying the 655sqm north-facing corner site, the striking home unfolds across 3 levels offering 275sqm (approximately) of space. Carefully renovated interiors acknowledge the original design with extensive use of native timbers - including Rimu and Matai - bringing a definitive character to the warmth & comfort found in each area. Multiple living spaces offer families the ability to have individual zones for relaxation & of course entertaining - complemented by well-appointed services.
The pervading sense of ease and versatility for families is carried through to the ample bedrooms & secluded master suite on the top floor. Rest assured that every consideration for quality living has been made throughout. Outdoors, the beautiful lawns & gardens have hosted many happy events and been a cherished playground for children & pets - a superbly private natural environment dappled with mature trees & humming with birdsong.
The coveted Double Grammar Zone 'Northern Slopes' location is as enduring as the design. Easy access to amenities, transport, schooling & a short commuting distance to the city for work and Newmarket for entertainment highlight the central convenience of this blue-chip address.
