Overlooking the Portland Valley, this enchanting original kauri farmstead circa 1865 has waltzed into the modern era resounding with elegance, charm and grace. Having gained large sensitively designed living additions, a smart contemporary kitchen and 2 modern bathrooms, it's now perfectly-attuned to today's family lifestyle in a quiet central location between Remuera and Newmarket/Parnell near top schools and amenities. Big homes have grown up all around. Yet this 5 bedroom character residence remains extremely private with a playground of lawn and trees for children. All-day sun streams inside across a delightful 1286m2 garden full of magnificent old specimen and fruit trees.
Be smitten by the grand drawing room off the entry. With its pretty plaster ceiling cornices and ornate mantelpiece above a log fire, it literally glows in the warmth of the sun - and gas central heating beneath the entire ground floor maintains that warmth throughout winter. The room opens onto a sheltered north-facing patio for entertaining. An impressive floor to ceiling curved wall of windows at one end takes your eye up into the boughs of a massive Pohutukawa tree, that's stood here for at least 100 years. An adjacent tv lounge is just as gorgeous with its tall ceiling height windows and built-in cabinetry around the fireplace. Large family living to the rear incorporates a sleek kitchen and extends to another exquisite outdoor dining area with expansive views over the neighbourhood.
There are 4 bedrooms with good wardrobe storage and a separate bathroom upstairs. The 5th bedroom suite downstairs adds flexibility as it could be used as a home office or even a formal dining room. There's a double garage plus extra parking in a separate driveway. Don't delay - a superb treasure too exquisite to last!
