Prominence With Position
Positioned upon the prestigious heights of Arney Road, this elegantly rebuilt villa and its 1416m2 domain offers an ethereal lifestyle on Remuera's revered northern slopes.
While appreciating the historical value within the villa's circa 1910 architecture, the existing custodians commissioned and rigorously performed a two-year rebuild. Restoring and salvaging a significant sum of original materials, transforming the expansive floorplan to embrace significant views, modern comfort and the latest in luxury innovation, the efforts rewarded them with a majestic character villa that performs unlike any other.
Unassuming from the secure automated gate, a stately entrance reveals the first of many marvels: a 3.8m decorative ceiling above the foyer. From here, the home unfurls in a series of formal and casual rooms, fit for entertaining or relaxing in all its finery.
Built with 5000-year-old swamp Kauri and luxuriously appointed, the bespoke kitchen, including scullery, is the holy grail for any chef. The elevated loggia is complete with an open wood burning fireplace with a gas ignition and elegant shutters which close off to create another gracious room; when open, the prominence of this Remuera position is asserted with commanding views spanning the iconic city skyline to the Hauraki Gulf and far beyond to the Coromandel ranges.
Groomed gardens and outdoor terraces are a jewel; private and peaceful, they reflect the grace of the home and offer the added enjoyment of alfresco entertaining by the heated pool.
There are four beautiful suites, five bathrooms, including a guest powder room and four en-suites. The offerings continue with four magnificent family rooms, a pavilion room, a wine cellar, a large utility/laundry, extensive storage, and a three-car garage with six off-street parking.
Over a century in age and completely restored to see another, a double grammar home of this calibre, near every urbanised convenience, is a rarity. To learn more, contact Leila and David today.
