Victorian villa charm, immaculate presentation, and the views go on forever!
With a grandstand position on Pukekohe Hill, this 5 bedroom, split level 1903 landmark homestead set on just over an acre of landscaped gardens has had just three owners - properties of this caliber rarely come on the market. Thoughtful bespoke modernizations blend with original period features to create a beautiful heritage property.
Surrounded by lawns, easy-care cottage gardens and mature native trees, the north-facing villa takes centre stage with stunning, uninterrupted views out over Pukekohe. A circular drive leads to the entrance with decking, low rock walls, flowering gardens and a grapevine-entwined pergola hinting at the charm to be found inside.
Wide sliding French doors completely open out to the deck, with an electric awning and indoor/outdoor sound system making it so easy to embrace outside living. Stepping inside, the kitchen and informal dining cleverly juxtapose the old with the new, including Smeg appliances alongside a working Shacklock Orion range, polished kauri floors and a custom upcycled timber benchtop.
Elegant and exquisite, the lounge encapsulates the graceful Victorian period with its original fireplace, ceiling rose, Murano glass chandelier and designer wallpaper. Double-hung sash windows fill the room with light and a discrete heat pump provides extra warmth. French doors open out from the lounge and formal dining to a wraparound verandah, perfect for enjoying a quiet moment in the sun enjoying the elevated views.
Villa ambiance continues throughout this period home, with hallway arches and an impressive bathroom complete with bidet and clawfoot bath. The light-filled master bedroom offers beautiful views and the functionality of a generous walk-in-wardrobe and en-suite.
Stairs lead down from the hallway to a renovated lower level with an office, bedroom and internal access double garage. Attractive self-contained accommodation on this level opens out to the gardens and fountain - the ideal set-up for extended family.
