'The Knoll' - Heritage Haven on Hinemoa Birkenhead, North Shore

'The Knoll' - Heritage Haven on Hinemoa

This much-admired Birkenhead Point villa is regarded as a building of significance and included on local heritage walks. Built by renowned local builder Marmaduke R. Souster in grand Queen Anne style, a few fortunate custodians have kept the single-level property immaculate since 1910.
Occupying a freehold site with dual entrances on Hinemoa Street and Bridge View Road, just a short walk to the Point's vibrant cafes, bushwalks and ferry to town, the house is affectionately named after the elevated knoll it is perched on. Every detail is utterly charming, from the original matai floors to the high stud, stained-glass windows, shutters, three original fireplaces, chandeliers and white-picket fence on the Bridge View Road entrance.
Winding gently up the garden path, past established trees, you'll arrive at a sun-drenched wide veranda onto which the master bedroom spills - perfect for those morning coffees. Each of the three carpeted double bedrooms has good storage and exquisite pressed-metal ceilings, as does the large north-east-facing parlour or second lounge.
Two bathrooms, one with a bath, are down the hall, along from a spacious main living room, which can open into the dining and kitchen area or be closed off. The sunny kitchen hub is an afternoon sun trap that opens onto a sheltered garden patio. The patio has a louvred roof area so you can enjoy the outdoors year-round. There's potential to lay more lawn or simply enjoy this flat and low-maintenance space (and garden shed) framed by olive trees and palms.
A double garage with an attic and a level second entrance off Bridge View Road completes this very pretty picture. View today!
