Private Haven on the Ridge
On an exclusive Remuera ridge, this luxuriously large property provides privacy as well as great entertaining opportunities. While the expectation of privacy and security might seem a basic requirement for a home, reality is that those two aspects are often relegated in favour of location and views. Fortunately for those seeking all of those requirements, this home more than delivers.
Located on a popular Remuera street within close proximity to the city, the aspect of privacy is taken further than simply protection from neighbours. Places of solitude within the home have also been considered. There are plenty of spaces for parents, children and guests to retreat to and yet this is a wonderful home in which to entertain. Two lounges and two dining areas cover both casual and more formal situations and create a natural flow around the kitchen and the outdoors. Sheltered and sunny, much thought was given to connecting alfresco dining with the kitchen and living rooms with doors and windows opening to create seamless access.
A dining courtyard, landscaped gardens and swimming pool all enjoy an ideal nor-west setting of half an acre on two separate titles.
Privacy also extends to the layout of the bedrooms with three 'wings' upstairs: one dedicated to the master suite which includes a lounge; two character-filled rooms each with ensuite; a third wing with a further bedroom, study, lounge and bathroom. A wonderfully playful attic is also accessed from this upper level. On a lower level, a highly appointed self-contained apartment provides further options within the family or provides guests autonomy to come and go as they please.
The unique elevated position with plenty of parking, is further enhanced by its easy access to Victoria Avenue, local shops and Victoria Avenue School grounds.
Architecturally designed by Peter Sargisson, the home is extremely secure and immaculately presented with spaciously refined rooms. Ideal for extended families seeking the double grammar zone and a fabulous home in which to entertain.
