Thank-you Sean Gillespie for your lovely pictures.
A lavish home, believed to be the largest new build in Wellington in more than a decade, is taking shape above Evans Bay.
The five-bedroom, 1400-square-metre house in Overtoun Terrace in Hataitai will be fitted with two bars, an indoor swimming pool, work areas, massage and games rooms, a “great room”, and a home theatre.
It is being constructed on two sections of land, bought for $5.8m in 2016 by Wellington-based siblings Nigel and Susan Stanford.
The combined cost of the land and the house totals $13.3m.
