This is one of the few original Remuera Road houses ‘of note’ built on the ridge between Bassett Road and Ridings Road.
Designed at a time when there were still true craftsmen to create the internal detail which is both timeless and of a quality rarely seen today.
The proportions of hallways, staircase and rooms have the feeling of being ‘just right’ …. Ceiling heights, widths and lengths of spaces all blend beautifully with the homes layout.
But what is so wonderful is that you enjoy the views through the style and charm of the architecture.
Set on 1,603m2 of land your views are protected because you own the land in front.
Enter through the hand adzed front door into the black and white tile vestibule, to the large reception area beyond. An open staircase leads your eye to the upstairs gallery and lofty ceiling.
All the key rooms in the house share the view. On the entry level is the separate sitting room, family living room plus the kitchen/dining area. French doors from these spaces open to a large north facing deck. From here you look down to your large pool, garden area, valley views, Rangitoto and the gulf beyond.
The top floor, with even more expansive views, houses the master suite, another bedroom with ensuite, family bathroom plus two further bedrooms and a separate study.
The bottom floor has its own separate entrance. There are French doors that open direct to the pool. The floor layout provides for multiple uses because it has it’s own kitchen, bathroom and two panelled spacious living areas/or more bedroom accommodation.
Practical needs are met with double garaging, off street parking, separate laundry, a guest bathroom and loads of storage.
