There are family homes and there are sophisticated homes but rarely do the two meet as well as they do here at 80B Bassett Road. A spacious family home with room for everything from your private art collection to multi-generation family and designed for entertaining as much as living. With soaring ceilings, gorgeous urban views and your own private eden this secluded property features a charmed garden full of important native trees. With what is potentially the largest private nikau collection in any NZ city, the magical 1071sqm (approx) sunny garden includes a stream, flying fox and the largest external chalkboards in NZ for kids, with a workshop and shed for dad and extensive decking to enable easy indoor outdoor flow and living spaces.
A lovely balance of modernist principles with traditional materials, this modern classics rejuvenation by its British architect owner (known in London for glamorous unique projects) has enhanced the original design. You need never worry about quality of construction with this home. Materials were chosen for style, maintenance and longevity. Situated on the top half of Bassett Road down a quiet driveway, hidden from view, protected from city noise and pollution this home is an easy walk to Newmarket, Remuera and many of NZ's top schools - both state and private including double Grammar Zone. After your daytime visit come back in the evening to experience what magic means after dark and you won't want to leave.
