Exuding elegance and representing perhaps the epitome of a modest English mansion, this picturesque home, designed by architect Basil Hooper and built in 1908, is a treasure coming to the market for the first time in many years.
With architectural features, such as stained-glass windows, fireplaces, rimu staircase and timber panelling preserved, this property offers a rare chance to own what many consider to be one of Hooper’s finest homes. Featuring a choice of living spaces, including a grand billiard room, the home benefits from renovated kitchen and two renovated bathrooms. Classic style with modern convenience.
The house sits high on a 1200 sqm site to catch the sun, is surrounded by mature trees and garden and offers views over the city and to the ocean.
Single garage and off-street parking for several vehicles. If you like character, you’ll love this – and just a short walk to the city centre.
