Auction this Sunday. 130 Calliope Road is on the market for the first time in 39 years, testament to what a wonderful family home this has been. There is a delightful ambience, from the time you step through the front door from the inviting front verandah where there are views of the harbour and CBD, to the wood paneled entrance and lead light windows that are displayed throughout the home, one's eye is drawn to them as they add warmth and character to the rooms. An entertainer's delight, the home offers excellent indoor/outdoor flow from the kitchen, dining area, where there is access to the sun-drenched deck, large 852m2 north facing lawn, vegetable garden and fruit trees.

It's easy to appreciate the home's ease of living and the history that comes with it. Just across the road are uninterrupted views of the water, an ever-changing vista of harbor life that allow a clear view of the cruise ships that arrive and depart. The Sky Tower, a land mark and focal point of Auckland, completes the back drop, making this property and position, special and unique.This is a home that has been truly loved.
