If you want the deep pleasure of a sense of arrival via a long country like driveway, do read on.
You will discover The Close, initially a bespoke collection of four townhouses drawn by Marshall Cook and built in 1983. The current owners of this home have happily lived here for 32 years.
The Close is a gorgeous little lane, of now, five, rarely relinquished architectural homes on the doorstep of vibrant Newmarket, Parnell and Remuera and close to the motorways and the CBD.
Please be prepared to be charmed by this European feeling north west facing designed home.
You will wake up to utterly breath taking views overlooking Hobson Bay and Rangitoto Island.
Sunlight saturates this 289 sq m (approx.) two storey home. The ground floor is dedicated to study, cooking, dining and living and the mundane but essential separate light filled laundry. There is an enormous internally accessed double garage (44 sq m approximately), with storage space and built-in workbench. You really don't need to separate yourself from the items that hold your stories!
The three bedrooms on the second floor are separated by a second living area which caters for peaceful separation of teenaged living.
The gallery like landing space is perfect for a library or an art collection.
It is of course, also, a family residence in the Double Grammar Zone.
Outside, well that is another little micro climate story. A walled garden designed by Bryan McDonald comprises three outdoor rooms including a vegetable garden. The north western outdoor living area cum gallery has glorious views across the harbour and the city skyline.
Meticulously maintained, this utterly private house is no ordinary home. The eye is captivated by the architectural detailing of beamed ceilings and wooden French door and window sea views.
Such a rare and secure setting will appeal to those buyers who are looking for something special and uplifting.
This is a collector's piece.
