In the same family since 1961, this magnificent home was designed and built around 1922 by renowned architect Roy Binney who created homes valued for their distinctive qualities and luxury. An extensive addition was built in 1990 adding a modern dimension.
The time is finally right to pass this estate to the next generation to create new traditions and memories and lift to a new perfection, while preserving the cherished history.
From the circular drive with flag pole, the home is well known and admired and on 2254 sq m of near flat land, and elevated on the Northern slopes of Remuera the harbour views from this ridge are spectacular.
From the grand entry hall that leads to both the Binney wing and the more modern wing, the home unfolds to a garden and lawn where you are afforded the privacy you seek for a family home. With five bedrooms (His and Her Masters), there are separate wings to ensure any family size, or extended family, and accommodate the nanny with ease.
The entertainment areas include formal dining, formal lounge, home theatre complete with bar, games room and beautiful character lounge, plus extensive decks and stunning day porch for private relaxation. Other features include sauna, wine cellar, attic storage, and roof top observation / sun deck.
The house contains most of the features which characterise Binney's work, such as the extensive use of wooden shingles, bay windows, French doors, small picture windows, pillared entrance, and stair window filtering light down the stairs.
Residences with this heritage, pedigree, size, location and schooling are rare.
