Stunning Home - Plus Room for a Business

Price By Negotiation

This often admired villa, sited on the corner of Penrith Avenue and Strickland Street, is truly one of a kind. Sited on established grounds covering 1,659sqm across two titles, this property offers privacy and seclusion within 10 minutes of the Central City. The addition of a 100sqm (approx.) outbuilding including a bar/kitchenette, toilet and a brand new attached garage or workshop offers the possibility of running a business from this prime location (CCC consent may be required.) Alternatively, if you love to entertain, it doesn't get better than this! With beautiful gardens, loads of off-street parking, triple garaging and a beautifully restored 315sqm (approx.) home, you really can have it all.

This iconic villa was built around 1910 by a well-known furniture maker and the craftsmanship is second to none. Grand scale proportions are evident throughout the home - three large living areas and five double bedrooms offer enormous amounts of flexibility to suit your needs. Charming features are evident everywhere you look - stunning rimu flooring, leadlight windows, high stud heights, and some of the most aesthetically pleasing ceiling details you will ever see. The list of renovations is extensive, making this property feel more like a new home, but with the character of an English Stately home. A builder's report is available to confirm the quality of the repairs and renovations.

Partial double glazing, two log burners and five heat pumps along with ceiling, floor and significant external wall insulation ensures effortless comfort.

The land area and developed gardens give the sense of a lifestyle property, yet the supermarket, restaurants and cafes are a short stroll away. Furthermore, the property is zoned for Somerfield School and Cashmere High School. Such quality real estate rarely becomes available so be sure to not delay your inspection of this magnificent home.
