The grand villa on the hill
- 3 Beds
- 2 Baths
The views will be the first thing you notice as you walk on to the large deck of this spectacular north-facing home. They reach over the landscaped gardens, the lush bush and across vineyards, out to the sea and Little Barrier Island.
But the house, too, is outstanding. A substantial weatherboard home built by Vernon Brown, of the Group Architects in the 1940s, it was once a doctor's surgery in Remuera before being moved to Waiheke.
The innovative design allows for all rooms to open through French doors to the deck areas. Beautifully decorated inside to complement the heart rimu and matai timbers, there's a sunny corner kitchen, tiled bathrooms and spacious living rooms and bedrooms.
There's also a self-contained holiday flat, a formed driveway, two water tanks and a track through the bush on this 10-acre block, with consent for additional holiday accommodation for 10 people.
