Penthouse living at Hampton Court

Harking back to an era of bygone elegance, discover this very special historically-listed penthouse in the heart of the Federal Street precinct.

Boasting two generous bedrooms, two bathrooms, home office and inimitable views over St Matthew's Church and the sparkling city skyline - here, history harnesses design in spectacular fashion.

Incepted by Fletcher Construction in 1929 as one of New Zealand's very first multi-family projects, in 1930 renowned architect Surrey S. Alleman was awarded the premier design award by the New Zealand Institute of Architects (NZIA) - and the iconic Hampton Court building carved its name into Auckland's architectural history forever.

Discreetly tucked away from the city's bustling CBD, the neo-Gregorian design works seamlessly with contemporary features to create a home that is equal parts matchless haven and functional living space.

Marked by symmetry and free-flowing proportions, the clever configuration is a design-lover's dream characterised by beautiful timber joinery akin to a villa. From the open-plan kitchen enjoy easy movement through formal and informal living spaces, separated only by strikingl sash doors and a covered, west-facing terrace perfect for sublime sunsets.

Between bedrooms there are generous proportions and the substantial master suite adds size and storage with a capacious walk-in-wardrobe, classic art deco undertones and of course a light, bright and beautiful ensuite.

Elegantly updated for the modern resident, special period details such as the ashlar stonework, original chandeliers and pendant lighting have been meticulously maintained to ensure old-world Europe resides here in Auckland.

Perfectly positioned in the heart of our vibrant city; there's no shortage of world-class cuisine, and a short stroll from the front door will deliver any number of entertainment options including premier retail, galleries, libraries and transport links in all directions (a 10 minute walk to ferry terminals)

Across the road, discover the newly transformed Federal Street Precinct - led by lauded eateries which include Depot, Masu and The Grill by Sean Connelly, or head down the street to the exciting Viaduct Harbour for sundowners with a view.

Highly regarded and very tightly-held, Hampton Court is an ideal home for the urban retiree, or professionals with an eye for classic architecture. High calibre in every sense of the word, here, your new home blends culture, history and unparalleled aesthetics into one excellent residential investment.
