Our home

A gorgeous double storey Victorian villa in Remuera, which is one of the most sought after areas of Auckland. This is a substantial house, set in half an acre of lawn and gardens, with a large solar heated pool. The house is nestled on a hillside overlooking Orakei Basin (an ancient volcano crater, now a recreational lake), with expansive water views over the Basin and beyond to the Waitamata Harbour.

All the rooms are bright and spacious, and enjoy all day sun. Four generous bedrooms, formal dining, 3 living rooms, study, spacious kitchen and family dining, opening to the garden, outdoor dining and swimming pool. Huge games room with pool table, table tennis, and X box. Three bathrooms and a powder room – with two of the bathrooms, including the en suite, recently renovated to the very highest standards. The house is well furnished throughout, with a mix of antique, mid-century and modern furniture, and in excellent condition. Other facilities include internet access, TV, DVD player and stereo, and lots of books. Everything you could expect in a generous and well cared for family home.

Who we are

  1. We are a couple with 2 boys, aged 13 and 11. I am a lawyer, and my husband owns a business. We are an active family (running, swimming, skiing, hiking and biking). We also enjoy both cosmopolitan cities, escaping to the beach or countryside, and active holidays (skiing, biking etc). We love our house, and would take care of your home as though it was our own.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

The house is located on a quiet private lane. A few minutes’ walk in one direction takes you to the Orakei Basin, and the walkway that encircles it (a 2.8 km walk or run that we do most days). A few minutes in the other direction takes you to a small cluster of local shops and cafes, for good coffee and bread and milk, and the local playground with Skate Park, flying fox and swings. The local shops, with great fish and fruit, are 5 minutes’ drive away. The heart of the city is only a 12 -15 minute drive – with the wonderful dining and harbour city experience that Auckland now offers. A 5-10 minute drive in the other direction from the property takes you to sandy beaches for family swimming.

Within an hour’s drive north or west of the property are vineyards, wild west coast beaches, sheltered east coast beaches, marine reserves, and forests with walking or bicycle tracks. Auckland is also a great place to base yourself if you intend to explore everything that New Zealand has to offer.
