Grand Central Village Villa on 971 sqm


Dating back to 1893 this is one of Devonport's landmark homes. Built by Jim Mays who made his fortune in the gold fields of the Coromandel, this grand villa in the village centre is steeped in history and has served many different purposes over its life, including 50 years as Pentlands Maternity Hospital probably making it the property that conjures up more happy memories than any other in Devonport!

Today it is a generous family home (450 sqm) offering any number of living options with plenty of space both inside and out, and it enjoys extensive views over the roof tops towards the harbour and Auckland City beyond. And the bonus is such a large site right in the village centre (971sqm), with a huge flat north facing garden with plenty of space to pop in a pool, play petanque, or even set up a cricket pitch. This home is perfect if you have a large family, and as much as you love each other, you need spaces to escape to. Equally it is a dream-come-true set up if you get regular visitors staying for extended periods, or maybe you want to work from home but keep work separate from family life. It spreads over two levels and there are so many rooms to play with that you need to come and see for yourself what might work for you! And at the end of the street, there is the beach. This has got to be Kiwi -dream heaven. The home itself is full of grand villa character - you will marvel at its extra wide entrance hallway, its spacious rooms with high 3.6 m studs, board and batten ceilings and tall villa windows. And you will appreciate the original fire places, polished wooden floors and the fact that so many of its heritage features are still intact for you to enjoy. All this plus an abundance of storage including a double garage and plenty of off street parking. Centrally located in the heart of historical Devonport, with the beach at the end of the street. Devonport Primary is just footsteps away, as is the ferry that whisks you into the City in 15 mins.
