This 1920s two level character home has recently been extensively renovated and extended to an extremely high standard and in a sympathetic manner.
Main access to the home is a private recessed entry opening into a large, feature foyer with beautiful oak paneling. Adjacent to this is the media room providing external access out to a terrace overlooking the tennis court. To the northern side of the home is the substantial formal living and dining room featuring extensive leadlight windows, open marble fireplace and chandeliers. This stunning north facing room overlooks the private grounds with access via a covered verandah where all year outdoor dining can be enjoyed. Off the main entry is the open plan family living area including casual dining, modern designer kitchen with butler's pantry, European appliances - an entertainers dream! This area leads to an outdoor terrace that takes in views of the pool complex.
The upper level includes four generous bedrooms, plus a library (or extra living area or bedroom) and main bathroom. All the bedrooms feature custom walk-in wardrobes and two of the bedrooms have ensuites. The master suite comprises a walk-in dressing room and luxurious bathroom.
The main gates open to the driveway that provides ample off street parking. A full sized, astro-turf, floodlit tennis court occupies a wide road-frontage site. The grounds of the property are fully fenced to provide security and include extensive sandstone courtyards and paving, a level area of north facing lawn encompassing manicured mature gardens and gazebo that are completely private. Adjacent to this are the pool and spa set within a generous sandstone paving area that faces northwest to capture the all day sun.
This immaculate property has been loved by the current owners for over 20 years and occupies a level, nearly half-acre site with excellent indoor/outdoor flow. It enjoys a northerly aspect on the highly valued and favoured northern slopes of Remuera, Auckland City and falls within the Double Grammar Zone, which also includes numerous private schooling opportunities.
Large properties like this are highly desirable and are becoming increasingly scarce.
