Step back in time and into your future when you set foot in the grounds of Prospect Hill. Situated opposite Stockade Hill, on its generous freehold 1,226 square meter (more or less) section, well-hidden behind trees and private tall fencing, Prospect Hill is like a secret garden in the heart of Howick. A gracious Historic Places Trust listed property, with its 1863 Victorian villa, 2022 replica guest house, splendid English garden, wrap around veranda, heated inground swimming pool, it is the stuff that dreams are made of!
The 1863 villa offers four bedroom with two semi ensuite, three living space. Originally belonging to...
Captain John Irvine, a magistrate at the Howick Courthouse, it has been extended and maintained by a series of fastidious owners to preserve the timeless heritage characters include high ceiling, polished Kauri floorboards, sash and bay windows, back-to-back fireplace, brass fittings, beautiful antique lights. Modern luxuries have been subtly added for comfort, including heat pumps, a ventilation system, remote controlled blinds, and complete top to toe insulation throughout including exterior walls.
A two bedroom, two bathroom guest house is newly constructed, which carefully replicates the characters of the original villa with cathedral ceiling, French door, Kauri flooring, and pressed tin tiles. This new addition offers perfect options for extended family, guests, or an AirBnB.
Zone for Macleans College, walk to Howick village, Prospect Hill is a very special property that truly offers a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to buyers who yearn to proudly own a precious piece of Auckland's history without compromising on the luxuries of modern life. Come see for yourself and be prepared to fall in love!
