Elevated on the Northern slopes of Remuera the harbour views from this ridge are spectacular. From the circular drive with flag pole, the home is well known and admired and on 2,254 sq m of near flat land. This magnificent home was designed and built around 1922 by renowned architect Roy Binney who created homes valued for their distinctive qualities and luxury.
From the grand entry hall, the home has six bedrooms plus there are separate wings to accommodate any family size or extended family. The entertainment areas include formal dining, formal lounge, home theatre complete with bar, games room and beautiful character lounge, plus extensive decks and stunning day porch for private relaxation.
The home holds some heritage significance and as a result will be enduring as you transition it into future life. There are many features which characterise Binney's work, such as the extensive use of wooden shingles, bay windows, French doors, small picture windows, pillared entrance, and grand stair case. An extensive addition was built in 1990 adding a more modern dimension to the property at that time.
The children will run around these gardens on fun filled summer days, and there is room to develop the section to accommodate a pool and more.
All the main Private Schools are nearby, walk to Market Road train station to commute to the city or out to Kings College, and zoned for AGS and EGGS.
Residences with this size, location and schooling are rare and it will be worthy of your long term hold as this family has done.
