Why travel to work when you can live, work and entertain, all in a generous character-filled property positioned a literal stone's throw from the buzz of Jervois Road?
Built as a community hall in 1913, this eye-catching slice of Ponsonby history is now ready for someone with vision to create their own story.
Known as the Royal Buffalo Hall, its early life included being a working men's social club until new owners spent more than a decade transforming the hall into a combined work space and home, along with the addition of a studio apartment.
Spread across two levels, entering through the front door reveals a vast work space with reception area, kitchen and bathroom, inviting numerous possible uses. There's a bedroom at the rear with ensuite, which could also serve as an extra office plus a fully self-contained studio flat with bedroom, kitchenette and bathroom, making it the ideal space for visiting guests, extended family or teens.
The generously proportioned upper level two bedroom residence was created in the 1990s and sits beneath a dramatic vaulted ceiling, with swamp kauri joinery detailed by craftsman builder Bob Cobb. Its entire sun-soaked open plan living, kitchen and dining zone opens to a huge partially covered, west facing entertainer's deck with panoramic views from Mt Eden to Mt Albert.
With ample off-street parking including a carport, there's room for up to four vehicles.
Saunter to your morning coffee on Jervois Road or take a leisurely stroll to drink and dine along nearby Ponsonby Road. Everything is within easy reach, including the CBD, great schools and local beaches.
An unmissable opportunity.
Please note, various parts of this property do not have consent from the territorial authority.
