Longworth - Charming English Inspired 1930s Home


There are a number of quality homes bought and sold in Havelock North, but seldom does such an outstanding property come to the market, standing head and shoulders above the rest.

Originally designed in 1929 by Eric Phillips, the renowned architect from this era, this Arts and Crafts style home has been lovingly maintained and carefully enhanced over the years to the highest standard. It blends a mix of exquisite original features and timeless elegance with modern comfort, all within walking distance of Havelock village and its schools and shopping precinct.

From the delightful formality of the gardens, step inside and become enveloped in the very essence of this quintessential English country residence. High ceilings, a gracious staircase and rich native woods accentuate the warmth and comfort of the interior. Moving through this beautiful home, the spaces open up to provide truly exceptional and expansive living areas.

The home features a large modern kitchen with adjoining scullery and formal dining area. The numerous separate living areas all with their own special ambiance give this house a character seldom seen in today's homes.

Upstairs a spacious master bedroom with large private ensuite is complemented by three further bedrooms and a family bathroom. All the bedrooms have gorgeous views of the grounds and each has its own special character with dormer windows and pitched ceilings. The fifth bedroom is situated on the ground floor, ideal for guests with its own entrance to the rear courtyard.

An added feature is the completely separate theatre room with surround sound, accessed by stairs from the ground floor. The room is ideally designed for movies or listening to your favourite music tucked away from the main house. This room could also be an ideal setup for working from home or perhaps turned into a self contained studio/apartment.

Outdoors formal gardens and lawns surround the house and give the feeling of an elegant country retreat. The garden was designed by Jamie MacPhail and was featured in the Autumn 2007 issue of New Zealand Alfresco- Outdoor Living and Garden Design magazine. The long driveway lined with mature trees ensures a tranquil and park-like setting for this lovely home.

The in-ground salt water pool in its delightful garden surrounds is perfect for family entertaining.

Now you have the opportunity to own this truly special property.
