Auction (unless sold prior) The Chambers Penthouse offers a unique opportunity to own a piece of history, arguably the best apartment in Auckland and the essence of luxurious New York contemporary style by Eden Park, Auckland's home of rugby and the CBD. Designed as Auckland's Council rooms in grand Revivalist style by Wade & Wade Architects, this 1912 heritage building has been carefully restored to the highest standards. Refined, elegant finishes reflect strong period influences. The original high vaulted, ornate plaster ceiling adds thrilling volume, making it a wonderful lounge space for entertaining.
In this glamorous modern home, controlled heating, elegant lighting and top-end appliances marry with tongue and groove wall panelling, moulded dados and antiqued bronze fittings. Brushed oak floorboards connect the generous kitchen incorporating a gorgeous waterfall marble bench to the living, where a plush wool carpet inlay adds softness.
A wall of the spacious master bedroom utilises the original stone exterior wall of the building and a skylight above washes the wall with light. Three generous bedrooms and three bathrooms. The master suite has a fitted dressing room and a freestanding bath in the bathroom.
With big skies and 360 degree views across to the Waitakere Ranges, the spacious sky terrace bathes in all-day sun.
A major part of the area's attraction is its proximity to Auckland's CBD (just a 5 km bike ride away), Newmarket and Ponsonby. It is an easy place to live with handy bus transport to the CBD and motorway and train access only minutes away.
Some of Auckland's most prestigious schools are within zone, including Auckland Grammar for boys and Epsom Girl's Grammar School. The primary and intermediate schools are also sought-after by families that seek to live in the Grammar Zone'. Mt Eden Normal Primary is right across the road.
A unique landmark, this beautifully crafted treasure can be yours. Don't miss out.
