Description

The Heritage Family Dream


This beautiful Mt Albert heritage property, known locally as Argent House, is as stately as they come. Sitting on an elevated site, amongst park-like grounds away from the street, the-turn-of the-century home has undergone several transformations, adapting to suit the modern needs of a family while keeping its sophisticated heritage character front and centre.

The grand entry foyer with timber balustrade staircase to the second level is the first point of call. Here, the generous stud height peaks at four metres, setting a lofty standard for the rest of the 339m² home. All five bedrooms are located upstairs, each with sprawling views, while several different living areas occupy the ground floor which is forged from native timber and centrally gas-heated.

The layout is an excellent hybrid between the closed-off rooms of yesteryear, which offer quiet and privacy, and the open-plan layout that most modern homes subscribe to. The informal dining room, for example, connects to an inviting north-facing courtyard where plenty of summer entertaining is known to unfold.

In excellent proximity to a number of primary and secondary schools, including Mount Albert Grammar and Auckland Girls Grammar, and with plenty of space, indoors and outdoors, for a family to spread out in, this esteemed address is the perfect opportunity for a family requiring something bigger.

As is the case with the current owners, plenty of wall space has proven an important asset, setting the stage for a burgeoning art collection while the 1531m² of manicured grounds offer a generous dose of greenery. If you are after a property that stands head and shoulders above the rest, you need to experience this gracious Mt Albert residence.
