One of Remuera’s Most Admired Homes could now be yours ..... for the first time in 30 years
Sitting proudly at the upper end of Portland Road, just opposite the King’s playing fields, is this classic Georgian style home. Affectionately referred to as ‘The Doll’s House’ this is more a reflection of the perfect proportions of the home’s facade than its size. The home is in fact 322m² and set over three floors. The entrance hall, with its polished floors, detailed architraves, period doors and ceiling plus galleried staircase all set the scene for the character and feeling of the rest of the house. To the right is the drawing room while straight ahead is the connecting dining room with sun room beyond and wonderful terrace, which is more like an outside room. The views from here and the terrace off the kitchen are magical, and the sun is with you till the end of the day. Also on this floor is a study, guest bathroom plus a bedroom and another bathroom.
The galleried staircase takes you to the top floor landing, two large double bedrooms, sunroom and family bathroom. The detailing and character features echo the grace and charm of the main floor.
Plus there is the bonus of self-contained accommodation on the bottom floor. This can also be used as part of the main house if you wish and includes a sitting room, kitchen, bedroom with ensuite plus a laundry. The living flows to a private, sunny terrace which then overlooks and leads to the pool and lovely garden/sitting area.
18 Portland Road is a very special home, in a wonderful position. Whoever is lucky enough to be the next owner is bound to cherish it as the current owner has and enjoy many happy years in an environment seldom found in this country.
