Villa With a Twist


8 Islington Street

Ponsonby, Auckland

Sold - 19.07.2018

First impressions count - although all is not as it seems from the exterior of this handsome classic villa. Once you step beyond the front veranda, you'll find yourself standing in a stunning contemporary home with bespoke touches throughout. A well thought-out renovation has delivered this home from typical remodelled villa status to avante-garde inner-city hideaway - oh so close to all things Ponsonby!

Noticeably the first feature to catch your eye is the monochromatic slash in the ceiling running the full length of the hallway and open plan living area, with a false ceiling, feature lighting and a peek through to the original villa board and batten. Warm polished wooden floors lead you to a large open plan living area, opening directly to a totally private and sheltered outdoor courtyard, bathed in sun.

The gallery style living room is spacious and warm, with crisp white walls providing a great place to display your art - the back wall is already home to a large custom Vivienne Westwood print, staying with the home. A state of the art kitchen will have you cooking for all your friends, and glass sliding doors open right back for great flow to the outdoor space - great for entertaining friends and family all summer.

A generous master bedroom opens out to the courtyard, and has a walk-in-wardrobe plus a tiled ensuite - private, quiet and secluded. Three double bedrooms with beautiful unique features of their own, and another tiled bathroom complete the package.

This home has so much to offer, not least the location - only a few minutes walk to Jervois Road shops and dining options, and Ponsonby Road just beyond that - you're spoilt for choice when popping out for a meal! With such beautiful finishes throughout and room for everyone, an easy commute to the city for work and an off street car park, the convenient low maintenance lifestyle on offer will be hard to pass up - we'll see you at the open home this weekend for a peek into this amazing opportunity.
