Grand and Gracious Restored to Former Glory


One of historical Devonport's original early century show homes, and celebrating a prominent corner position at the entrance to the village, this grand and gracious transitional villa now showcases a masterful and supremely stylish restoration.

To hear the story of this home, watch the video and take the virtual tour.

Around the turn of last century, Allenby Avenue was recognised as the street where the era's very best craftsmen meticulously created residences to showcase their wide variety of skills and offerings. Number 39 is a sterling example of this, seen in the exemplary level of detail and finish throughout drawing from both villa and bungalow eras. These heritage elements have been retained in the home's latest incarnation, with the voluminous rooms maximised and modernised for contemporary family living and soaring stud heights creating an innate sense of space. There are four generously proportioned bedrooms off the grand hallway, as well as a large formal lounge, which links via a north facing sun room to the light-filled open plan kitchen and dining space - this area is an entertainer's haven and captures views out across to Rangitoto Island.

As an added bonus, there is an enormous attic which could be made into a massive media or rumpus room or a majestic master suite... and there's stacks of space under the house too - with potential to create masses of storage, or even garaging for multiple cars. Neatly landscaped grounds are enclosed within secure fencing and mature hedges, affording an excellent sense of protection and privacy for the property, and there's a single garage on-site.

A truly prime position within easy walking distance to nearby Cheltenham Beach and Waitemata Golf Club. Local schools are also close by, along with all the eateries and boutiques of Devonport village, with easy access to Auckland by ferry. Simply unpack, and enjoy the fruits of this graciously restored grand residence.

NB: the CV of $1.4mil does not take into account the recent renovation.
