Stunningly Restored Lloyd Bates Original


Celebrating an iconic position at the crest of Huia Street in Devonport, this landmark Lloyd Bates original has been masterfully, meticulously and respectfully restored to its former glory. Built in 1929, Inglis House was renowned New Zealand architect Bates' largest ever commission, a grand three-story residence designed with English and American Arts and Crafts influences.

The local lifestyle is very much part of the appeal. Ensconced in the sought-after neighbourhood of Devonport, it is a pleasant stroll along Calliope Road into the village, while the CBD ferry terminal is an easy walk down the hill. The current owners recognised the heritage beauty and craftsmanship of the Category 2 Listed Historic home, so embarked on a major project with the help of Architectural Designer Patrick Malloch. Discerning aficionados of the style will have the utmost appreciation and admiration for the astounding passion, precision and focus that has gone into the refurbishment. From the handcrafted pillars, panel work, ceilings and delightful asymmetry of the interior detailing, absolutely every element has been expertly reinvigorated, custom-made and brought back to life. As well as immense historical and architectural significance, the home celebrates astounding 180 degree views of the Auckland harbour and cityscape. The ever-changing colours, moods and activity of the water mean there is always something to experience and enjoy, with excellent elevation ensuring all three levels are fully immersed in the outlook. Although the residence is aesthetically historical, the structure, insulation and acoustics are now upgraded to create a comfortable, contemporary living environment. Additions include a lavish chef's kitchen, ventilation, heating and cooling systems and new media room. This extraordinary home must be experienced to be believed and is surely one of the country's finest and most authentic heritage restoration projects.
