About this listing
Commissioned in 1928 by a wealthy business family the house was built with only quality materials. All heart hardwoods that you simply couldn't obtain now. The current owners bought the property when it was very tired but could see the classic potential. They beautifully restored the home to its full splendour but ensured all modern comforts were met. The house features matai floors, rimu panelling, redwood window sashes, rimu window and door joinery, carrara ceilings, leadlight windows, period light fittings, door joinery, window stays and electrical outlets, As well as original fireplaces and quality window treatments, there are modern but sympathetically styled bathrooms and kitchen. The result is a magnificent timeless classic great for entertaining and living that would suit a large family or an executive couple who love to entertain.

The property includes great indoor/outdoor flow to a flat fully landscaped sunny section sitting amongst easy care mature gardens which provide privacy and all round fragrance and colour with a flat lawn and ideally situated for all of Karori's amenities. The house has been totally rewired, reroofed, replumbed and copper spouting has been replaced in the last decade, so should provide years of free maintenance. Curtains are fully lined and interlined, made with quality fabrics and hand finished rails. There is gas central heating and a DVS system to keep you cosy in winter.
