Dating back to 1904, and tightly held over the generations, this iconic home's many original features have not been tinkered with over time, leaving so much to restore and work with into the future. Hear what heritage restoration expert Peter Wolfkamp has to say about this iconic home - click on the VIDEO icon now. Walking inside this home takes you way back in time. It has such scale; grand size rooms with high stud ceilings, tall villa picture windows framing the views, stunning wooden floors in remarkably good condition, hand crafted rimu and kauri throughout from skirting and architraves, to fireplaces and doors, to ceilings and ceiling roses, and the majestic staircase leading up to the traditional grand landing. Throughout the home, the variety of stained glass windows are reminiscent of the different eras in the life of this unique home. There is so much to save, so much to work with, so much opportunity and it will be a privilege to be the custodians of this home into the future. The sheltered garden with views to the sea through the pohutukawas offers a peaceful haven... and a recently discovered path heads down to a right of way towards the water and the opportunity to access the beach below. Both Cheltenham and Narrow Neck beaches are footsteps away, and historical Devonport village is nearby with its variety of restaurants, cafes and shops. From here you can reach Auckland City in just 15 minutes by ferry. Fantastic schools are a plenty within walking distance or buses pick up from the gate. The opportunity is now yours to open the next chapter in the life of this Edwardian Cheltenham residence. Call me now for a private viewing, or come along to our open homes.
