AUCTION BROUGHT FORWARD


A highly-engineered project of passion with a client brief to create an exceptionally elegant, stylish and light-filled living environment - this exquisite Devonport bungalow sets a new benchmark for character home renovation. The dimensions and location make it equally as suited to families who seek a supremely comfortable, contemporary lifestyle in a well-connected neighbourhood, as to discerning downsizers who refuse to compromise on space or quality.

Rebuilt, refurbished and reimagined with incredible attention to detail, the home's new incarnation was designed by architect Rachel Howie, with modern life and solar heat gain at the forefront of the vision. A charming, picture-perfect street-side view gives away little of the grand proportions showcased inside, where three of the bedrooms are serviced by the main bathroom and the stunning master retreat has its own sitting area and ensuite.

Every surface, fitting and appliance has been carefully curated to complement the tasteful aesthetic and enhance the original bungalow style, with existing Rimu floors restored and matched with new 200mm heart Rimu flooring in the extension. Light has been masterfully captured throughout via four brand-new electric skylights, thoughtfully-placed windows and the wall of glass and vaulted ceiling in the open-plan living and dining rooms. The new custom-built timber kitchen has a duel fuel Belling range oven, stone benches and a Blum space tower pantry. Bifolds frame views of Mt Victoria and open out to the wide Vitex hardwood deck that wraps around the outside, stepping down to the perfectly flat, private lawn and fully-landscaped garden.

Empire Road's quiet cul-de-sac borders Waitemata Golf Club and is within walking distance to Cheltenham Beach, local shops and the village, filled with cafes, restaurants, bars and the CBD ferry.

Absolutely no expense has been spared in this ultra-high-spec renovation, instantly captivating those with a passion for character and a desire for uncompromising quality.
