About this property
Standing as a testament to the architectural genius of Canadian Sholto Smith, this is a powerful iconic landmark situated in one of Remuera's most coveted locations. With a provenance that connects to some of the most admired and exulted residential and commercial properties by the same architect, this substantial Arts & Crafts home on a dreamily generous 931m² was constructed at a time when land in Auckland was plentiful, and families were large.
Loftily owning the elevated corner site of parklike, leafy grounds containing a north-facing swimming pool, this regal beauty offers a surprising blend of grandeur and comfortable homeliness in a residence that will certainly appeal to growing families.
A spacious reception hall is an impactful first impression and the tantalizing promise of things to come. The juxtaposition of bevelled leadlight glazing, polished timber floors, chandeliers and neoclassical fireplaces with modern fixtures and contemporary white walls of the 21st century mean that the best of both worlds is achieved - luxurious beauty and harmonious modernity - a marriage made in architectural heaven that Smith would approve of. All bedrooms are sumptuous, cosy and two, including the master bedroom, a particularly luxe indulgence with window seat and private sitting room.
A commanding presence and dual street frontage that has been admired and wondered at by locals and passers-by for years, this coveted property close to the Upland Village and in Meadowbank School Zone is immaculately presented and has the scope to take it to the next level. This is your chance to own a distinctive Sholto Smith, which has been cherished by families for 100 years, and add your own style and flair through added improvements that suit your family's living. A rare offering - call to view now!
