Glimpsed from the street, this traditional Auckland villa’s modern alter ego is kept well under wraps. But step a little to the right and you’ll notice an intriguing switch from the classic weatherboard cladding, plus a brand-new garage nestled at the end of the driveway.
Through the front door, the 400sqm interior flows through the updated existing spaces into an incredible contemporary addition, consisting of a sweeping split-level living zone. Accessed via an open glazed staircase, the lower level soars to great heights and flows to a patio and large lawn. Back inside, the open-plan mezzanine spills onto a deck which wraps around an enormous above-ground swimming pool with views across the neighbourhood. The modern kitchen features a scullery with secret door.
Bedrooms and bathrooms have been lovingly refurbished for modern life. A timber-lined library reads its book-loving audience well. Set under super-high ceilings, the all-white master bedroom with original fireplace conceals a walk-in wardrobe and private ensuite. A beautiful addition that’s steeped in luxury.
