Description

Sold


Set amongst picturesque Victorian villas on the side of Takarunga/Mount Victoria, is an exciting and rare find. The iconic old Power Station is converted into three huge, architecturally designed apartments each spanning 3 levels. Up-close views of the maunga, glimpses of the glistening harbour and Rangitoto Island surprise and delight. Here is an uber-chic work-from-home or lock-and-leave lifestyle opportunity like no other.

A vast covered common area features bare bricks, exposed beams and a vaulted ceiling. The doorway to this apartment was decorated by NZ artist Selwyn Muru, and examples of his work feature throughout the home.

A brand-new, well insulated roof guarantees year-round comfort, there's stacks of storage, covered off-street parking, plus potential for a cosmetic revamp. The ground floor - a magnificent man cave for the current owners - could be a creative work area, media room, teenager retreat or developed further into more living space (subject to consents). Directly accessed from the street is an artist's studio, linked to the main house via a covered courtyard garden.

The first floor is all about living, with a generous lounge connecting through to a study on one side, kitchen/dining, laundry and guest powder room to the other. Between these two areas a conservatory leads to a secluded north-facing walled deck where you can unwind from the bustle of day-to-day life, enjoying summer evenings alfresco, fringed by a sunken subtropical garden. The family bathroom is located mid-way up to the next level, and three big bedrooms are at the top.

Walk to the village or the beach, grab coffee and a croissant on the way, the location is just so convenient. With probably more green spaces than anywhere in Auckland, and fast ferry service to the CBD, it's no wonder this is such a highly sought-after suburb.

After 16 happy years the current owners are ready to retire out of Auckland and this unique home is sure to attract keen attention.
