Treasured Heritage

Unique and super special in so many ways, this striking home on a large, level 868sqm north-facing site is a Parnell lover's dream.

It is the last surviving privately owned residence from the Selwyn community expansion era and brims with delightful early New Zealand character. Designed by Frederick Thatcher, the home was built in 1857 for the headmaster of Selwyn's Maori Boy's school - complete with musket lookouts to protect from possible invaders.

The current owner's family bought it 96 years ago and a local architect recently enhanced the property, completing a large scale sympathetic programme of refurbishment and extension for warm, comfortable and contemporary living.

Together with garden studio accommodation and a semi self-contained loft above double garaging, it has a choice of sitting and dining areas, four bedrooms and three beautifully appointed bathrooms.

On the ground floor a north facing high-pitched, light-filled conservatory opens out to a sheltered patio overlooking the pool and garden. A beautiful farmhouse-style kitchen has granite benchtops and is perfectly positioned between the laundry and a cosy sitting area where the warmth of a log fire is complemented by European style radiators that feature throughout the home.

Offering versatile options, a third living space on the ground floor also could be another bedroom. There is another bedroom and bathroom on this level and three more bedrooms plus an office and second bathroom upstairs.

Amazing character, comfort and convenience, zoned for double Grammar and Parnell School and a walk to vibrant Parnell Village. Become the next guardian to treasure this outstanding piece of Auckland's heritage.

Our vendors have purchased and are seriously on the move - Phone for viewing times.
