Sold - 18.02.2017

Marketed by Ricky Cave & Shan Li

You'd be forgiven for thinking this home belongs in the Hollywood Hills of film's golden era - a fabulous and rare example of 1930s, double brick, Spanish Mission Revival architecture. Behind elaborate secure gates the 3119sqm estate of landscaped, carefully tended gardens and rolling lawn recalls a prestigious past. The offering here is rich, with exceptional potential added. A porte-cochre welcomes you in towards the show stopping entry - a sweeping staircase bathed in light from original leadlight windows creates cinematic drama. The lounge with convex ceiling and curved walls holds a stone fireplace and through cleverly disguised doors you may access the glistening heated pool on the terrace beyond. A formal dining room, panelled in original hardwood sets a refined and classic tone. Open plan and expansive, the family room, dining area and kitchen form a real modern and comfortable hub for family living. The generous and contemporary kitchen is complemented by a concealed butler's pantry ideal for catering to the entertainment opportunities a property of this scale affords. From this zone, access to the various terraces, lawns and outbuildings. Upstairs, 4 large bedrooms make plenty of room for family or guests. The master suite has a generous ensuite and dressing room with floor to ceiling cabinets, with walk-in wardrobe located adjacent, ample enough for the most discerning fashion enthusiast. Perched on a sun drenched lawn at the rear of the house, self-contained guest accommodation is ideal for extended family. The twin double garages are connected via three carports. One of the garages holds a glassed in wine cellar for the home sommelier to enjoy. Superbly located in heartland Remuera, this beacon of Jazz Age splendour also offers the chance for the next privileged owner to add their personal touches through gentle renovation or to enjoy as is.
