The grand, elegant villas positioned on the desirable slopes of St Marys Bay, above Westhaven, are an Auckland landmark. Built to impress, and positioned to capture sun and harbour views, this is one of those homes. Still grand, still elegant and now beautifully restored over 3 levels for 21st century living.
At street level, enter through the tiled lobby (with underfloor heating). A substantial bedroom and living space, with French doors to a small courtyard, ideal for teens or guests - with their own bathroom of course. A clever allocation of space on this level also provides a walk-in wine cellar/storage room, a full laundry and utility room, under stair storage and tandem internal access garaging for 2 large vehicles. (Be warned: there's so much storage in this home, you may lose track )
On the main level you won't be able to decide what to take in first. There's the formal living/dining area with its ornate original plaster ceilings and the views to Westhaven and SkyTower through full length sliding windows. Or, there's the high-end kitchen featuring a family friendly island with seating for 6, adjoining a more casual/media living area, opening to the tropically landscaped outdoors with alfresco entertaining. Also on this level, two more bedrooms with ample wardrobes plus the family bathroom and more storage.
A full and fabulous master suite on the top level with built in cabinetry, opens to a generous deck with magical views across the harbour to Rangitoto. Plus, there's a large home office, with more storage and built in under-window desk space for at least 2 of you (could be a nursery).
Just as the original carpenters created these villas with panache, and to cater for the needs of Aucklanders back then, this home has been restored with lifestyle, family, comfort, and work-from-home possibilities in mind. This is a rare opportunity to purchase one of these beautiful landmark villas.
