A home of splendour and rich history, 2 St Vincent serves as an extraordinary private residence, only meters from Remuera Village. Formerly known as Oaklands, then later Cotter House, this premier oasis rests on the heights of St Vincent Avenue and is positioned down a driveway behind secure gates.

Originally constructed around 1862, the inspiring Victorian architecture sums up the beauty of a former age and time, while the luxuriously refurbished transformation resonates with the refined lifestyle. An approx 565m2 floor area accommodates casual living, two formal living rooms, options for working from home and a self-contained suite featuring private access. An engineering marvel, the barrel-vaulted ballroom overlooks the pool area and creates an overwhelming sense of awe when hosting family or guests. Private parties, weddings, and Remuera Heritage Society events have graced these walls on numerous occasions and have done so with the assistance of a custom-designed gourmet kitchen and full-scale scullery. Between the billiard room, complete with a decadent bar, and the pool and spa area, this is an entertainer’s paradise.

The 1,399 square meter section is a low-maintenance sub-tropical oasis, a perfect complement to the profile of the home and high lifestyle. Every bathroom and en suite is tastefully finished while each bedroom is a sanctuary. Some capture elevated views, while the master suite reveals a ravishing walk-in closet, powder room and full en suite. Central heating and ambient gas fireplaces ensure comfort, integrated security sew peace of mind, and double garaging with a powder room for swimmers is a practical addition.

This pinnacle location is adjacent to Remuera’s humming cafes, lively bistros, galleries, and boutique shopping. Zoned for Auckland Grammar School and Epsom Girls Grammar School and within walking distance to Remuera School and Remuera Intermediate, only a minority can boast such a privileged position. The vendors have meticulously maintained this grand jewel but are now sizing down. Official heritage records share an intimate look into the property’s colourful history. For further information and to make interest known, please phone Leila and David MacDonald.
