A Life Well Lived

SOLD - This listing was sold in May 2016
This landmark Hataitai masterpiece has dominated the skyline for over a century. Superbly situated for privacy, park, bush and sea views, it has been oft-admired but so rarely available. Elegant and gracious, its character features are abundant at every turn, yet it has been sympathetically renovated for today's modern lifestyle. With five spacious bedrooms, two bathrooms, formal living and dining, plus a study, there is plenty of room for work and play. It is the expansive ballroom however, with its parquet floor, ornate plaster cornices, fretwork and elegant proportions that makes this property an undoubted one-of-a-kind. French doors leading to the wrap around verandah allows for entertaining or relaxation bathed in afternoon and late evening sun. The attention to detail and quality of workmanship is simply sublime.
Pressed tin ceilings, intricate plaster work, native timber floors, architraves and window joinery, beautiful leadlight bay windows and the high stud so well-loved in homes of this period are evident throughout. There's drive on access to a double garage, plus off street parking, as well as formal gardens, a large courtyard and a fully-fenced flat, spacious and sunny lawn to enjoy. This majestic home has been faithfully maintained, including re-wiring, gas fire heating, it is well-insulated and has just received a full exterior re-paint. There is only one of these. Make it yours. Enquire today.
