This impressive 1880's estate on Birkenhead Point is sure to provide you with unforgettable celebrations - on the expansive flat, sunny lawn fringed by English gardens, in the original ballroom (now the second lounge and music room), around the massive granite kitchen bench or in the adjoining family/dining area or maybe just relaxing on the upstairs balconies on every side of the house. The kitchen and bathrooms were renovated for easy modern living, yet the home remains full of superb original character features. Accommodation includes four double bedrooms, each opening to a balcony, plus a third living area or fifth bedroom off the gorgeous main bedroom suite with city, Rangitoto, harbour or sea views and a walk-in dressing room. There are multiple options to tailor this home to your lifestyle. Includes a separate laundry, spacious carpeted internal double garage, masses of secure parking and room for your boat. Forget the tedious daily commute. This wonderful property is discretely hidden behind automatic gates and there is a private walkway to Bridge View Road making it an easy stroll to the city ferry and boat ramp, fantastic bars, restaurants, and Highbury shops. Embrace Auckland's finest lifestyle.
