It's almost impossible to imagine that you could find a woodland sanctuary just a few steps off one of Remuera's most prestigious Northern Slopes streets. But when you enter the gates and wander up the rustic crazy paving path, past the lily pond, you know you've found a very magical home. Yes, it is an extensive 4-bedroom family home designed by architect Terry Hitchcock, with 4 living areas, set over approx. 362 m2 of floor space. Yes, it offers easy-flow open-plan living over several levels, with extensive pool and spa area for summer afternoons. Yes, it offers privacy and seclusion...

on its 1625 m2 of land, rarely found in a sought-after central city suburb. But it's only when you throw the picture windows open to the birdsong, or explore the pathways that wind their way through the woodland setting, that you truly savour what is so special about this home. The present owners didn't hesitate when they stumbled upon it. From the Canadian cedar shingle cladding and the Fijian Kauri ceilings & slate flooring, to the soaring interior spaces that invite natural light to flood through the home, they knew this property perfectly blended the qualities of a substantial Remuera residence with an informal family lifestyle. Ever since, it has been a home full of laughter, hidden away from the stresses of city living. Winters have been spent by the fire in the library or in front of the big screen in the media room. Summers have been spent by the pool or BBQing together in the dappled light of an evening sunset. When the outside world calls, you're just a few minutes' walk to Remuera Village, and Newmarket is a couple of km away. You're also in Double Grammar Zone, with Kings School just 250m up the road. But this home will always beckon and, now ready for a new family, you're invited to explore this magical opportunity.
