A rare opportunity to possess this majestic mansion, formerly the home of William C. Daldy, a name known to lovers of Auckland's maritime history, now sympathetically restored to contemporary luxury. 5 bdrms, 5 bthrms, 3 living zones, 6 plus garage, heated pool, & extraordinary views from east to west taking in Sky Tower, the Harbour Bridge, Takapuna & beyond. From the magnificent entrance way, opulent living spaces, grand staircase, & master suite - the ornate ceilings in this home are fabulous fantasies of white. The heritage lead-lights & carefully chosen window treatments bathe this house in a soft, diffused light. On the main floor, the 3 living zones spill one into another along the north side of the home. The masterchef kitchen with vast island bench features highly spec'd appliances & a scullery. Move through to the substantial family lounge with big screen, and a view to the city. Floor to ceiling glazed walls quietly slip away as you step through to the outdoor entertaining area. The glistening heated pool beckons, followed by a cocktail or 2, & then alfresco dining in the outdoor alcove with Louvre-Tec overhead, an outdoor gas fireplace plus a built in barbeque station hidden from view. Also on the main floor, 2 spacious bedrooms for family or guests, & 2 bathrooms, each highly spec'd. Upstairs the master suite with those magnificent views opens to its own return verandah. The en-suite bathroom is possibly the largest we've seen, certainly one of the most well appointed. 2 more fairytale bedrooms on this upper floor are served by a family bathroom with a circular freestanding bath. Garaging for your vehicle collection, large media room with independent entrance & bthrm, a kitchen-size laundry room, storage aplenty, space for a wine cellar, air conditioning & security system. The location of this home is equally as impressive, with Western Park Ponsonby Road, virtually on your doorstep. Nothing has been overlooked in this restoration of one of Freemans Bays truly grand homes.
