FIRST TIME ON THE MARKET IN 57 YEARS
FOR SALE BY AUCTION - IN ROOMS, THURSDAY 5th AUGUST 2021 at 6:30pm (unless sold prior)
Situated in the heart of Takapuna, this architecturally designed and cultivated 1940s home is just so impressive. Avante garde in its time, the large sprawling one-level design is something contemporary designers would be proud of.
The land offers private flat established grounds totalling a substantial 1149sqm of Business Mixed Use Zone, owned by the same family for 57 years - so this is a once in a lifetime opportunity.
The cedar, block and shingle construction sings true to good building of its day and it has many original features, including shelving, display units and panelling built by the owner who was a master cabinet maker and boat builder. There is so much to fall in love with.
The main home comprises a three-bedroom wing and family bathroom, a separate formal dining, formal lounge, informal living/kitchen & dining space, and an oversized tandem garage with conservatory and workshop area.
Attached to the entry side of the property in the 1970s is a spacious self-contained flat providing a generous living/dining/kitchen space, bathroom and laundry and a large double bedroom.
The grounds are exceptional, and the crescent shape design of the home embraces the warm northerly aspect towards the outdoor entertaining area.
The large backyard is a gardener's paradise. The property offers long-standing fruit trees, including persimmon, pear and orange and native trees attracting an array of native birds.
Built by well-known Les Harvey as his first home, the history and legacy offered by this property yields something special that could be preserved and improved on for generations to come.
Alternatively, the property offers fantastic opportunities for development - whether land banking, developing a new home or a future building project.
This is a rare opportunity to secure such a unique property in Takapuna.
