Grand-size historical gem on 1,625M2 site


This once elegant mid-Victorian villa of classical proportions in the heart of Devonport has survived in spite of numerous alterations and changes of use over the years. Originally built in the 1870s as a good-size family home on an impressive 1625m² site, it was later converted into a hospital in the 1920s and then into five flats in the 1940s, and remains as such today. Now a rambling building of some 320m², yet clear evidence remains of the quality of the original home with graceful bracketed octagonal columns and a double gated slate roof.

Now for sale by the Trustees of a deceased estate, this historically significant Devonport property is in need of renovation and ripe for change.

Conveniently located in the village within very easy walking distance of everything that Devonport has to offer - from cafes and restaurants, to playgrounds and beaches, and of course just a 15 minute ferry ride into Auckland City. 18 Buchanan Street is ready and waiting for its next phase in life - take this chance to own one of Devonport's historical gems, on a significant land holding right in the heart of the village.
