Waterfront Home of Pedigree and Grand Proportions

Celebrating a rarely available and highly sought-after waterfront position, this breath-taking residence of grand proportions (432 sqm) on King Edward Parade is just footsteps from the heart of Devonport village. A much-admired property, it is equally revered for its rich historical pedigree as its beautiful elegant street presence perched high above colourful cottage gardens with commanding views out over the pohutukawas and the harbour beyond.

So much more space inside than its modest street presence would imply. Tardis-like and offering an incredibly functional, spacious floorplan with four bedrooms, three bathrooms, multiple living areas, and the absolute draw card of minimum five-car underground garaging, it is an extraordinary property presenting grand proportions, panorama, prestige and period architecture.

It was originally crafted in 1880 for Oliver Mays, and was later home to acclaimed New Zealand poet A.R.D Fairburn, which has earned it a place on the Devonport History Trail. More recently, architects Salmond Reed conceived the magnificent renovation, which created a glass-walled linkway connecting the original cottage to the new and very generous rear accommodation wing.

Period features have not just been retained, they've been masterfully reimagined to add unique nuances, which include stained glass skylights, painted panelling and a grandstand viewing platform atop the house with 360 degree views, perfect for watching the upcoming Americas Cup.

Rooms enjoy a magical sense of connection with the water, and the home is stepped up the site and elevated off the road offering a wide perspective. The formal lounge and cosy TV room flow into the open-plan kitchen and dining, with private courtyards enjoying great sun and privacy at the rear. Downstairs is the gigantic garage with workshop, an abundance of storage plus a rumpus area and expansive media room.

This is a truly extraordinary property.
