Completely private, behind leafy hedging, this sheltered, elevated north-facing outdoor haven encompasses a level lawn between 2 big sunny terraces with views to the Sky Tower.
Upstairs, bedrooms are huge with good wardrobes and 2 have ensuites plus there are separate wcs and a family bathroom. The luxury master ensuite has been updated and this grand bedroom with beautiful green valley views has a walk-in wardrobe.
There is plenty of storage throughout and double internal garaging provides even more. While it is a practical home, interiors impress with beautiful aesthetic details, like marble floors in the entry, pretty ceiling cornices and herringbone floors in formal areas.
Yet, there is ample opportunity to upgrade to add real value - and it is worth it in this prestigious location between Upland Road and the Benson Road shops with zoning for Remuera Primary and Remuera Intermediate as well as double Grammar. Come, see and be inspired to take it to the next level.
