Description

A stunning slice of history


Originally built in the mid to late 1870's and distinguished by the classic design aesthetic of a fine brick verandahed villa, this Victorian styled home is full of early New Zealand architectural character. Located above the brow of the hill on Bleakhouse Road with lovely views to Rangitoto and the islands of the gulf, needs to be viewed to be fully appreciated.

Featuring craftmanship seldom found in the average home, covered verandas and impressive interior details including a more modern adaption for extensive family living well away from the road. Rich kauri floors, a spacious open plan kitchen, adjacent dining and family area with a functioning wood burning fireplace. A wonderful formal lounge and dining room as well as a colourful bathroom and powder room loaded with character. Three bedrooms including an attic room, a library/office and separate guest quarters with attached artist studio being a special feature of this impressive property which is surrounded by rambling English gardens, including fruit trees and roses.

Extremely well positioned on a 1,148sqm site offering good off-street parking, this historic house known as the 'McMillian Homestead' is very special to view. Located just a few minutes' drive from Howick Village and is within easy walking distance of the prestigious Macleans College.

A rare opportunity to own this slice of history which will capture your heart the second you enter.

Vendor will consider offers around the CV of $1,940,000.
