About this listing

SOLD - This listing was sold in March 2019.

Situated in Awhiorangi Promenade, off the main Scenic Drive, this property has been in the family for 3 generations - over 100 years - but as the owners are moving out of Auckland, you have this opportunity to buy and enjoy living in a lovely Victorian Kauri villa. The Scenic Drive area was originally covered by a huge stand of ancient kauri, most of which were milled in the 19th Century. Built around the same time, this grand villa is made from timber which probably came from this region.

Sweeping into the 1012m² flat level section you'll notice unusually generous concrete off-street parking linking seamlessly to the framed rear yard & adjoining verandah's, where great memories can be made. Your drives will comfortably fit within the oversized internal double garage, combining the stain-glass character of yesteryear with modern convenience.

Notable for it's flow, the gracious & spacious dimensions both inside and out certainly provide a relaxed atmosphere. Combining high stud, elegant light-fittings & deco-plastered architraves, it's also well heated & insulated. Glowing with new roof & freshly refurbished bathrooms, light bounces off granite kitchen benchtops & enhanced outdoor lighting & LED's give extra ambience.

The master bedroom with spacious ensuite & walk-in robe plus a further three double-sized bedrooms break to one side of the grand central hallway. Balancing this stunning home, the dining room sits conveniently between living & kitchen; all are North-facing, all spacious & elegantly decorated. Polished native timber floors, character accents at every turn, & the verdant backdrop of one of Auckland's safest neighbourhoods, means that while you're close to golf courses, Swanson village cafes, train station, Bethells/Te Henga & SH16, this provides the perfect address to call home.
