Our past .... Your future ....

Hidden away in a private 1292m2 tropical sanctuary this elegant Parnell mansion is one of New Zealand's oldest homes.
Built circa 1840 the home is surprisingly original and in very good condition.

The main house with its covered walk-around verandas on both levels has four generous bedrooms and three living areas. The upper level flows out to a concrete in-ground pool complex ideal for family fun and entertaining. The pool is located on the western side which bathes in the afternoon sun.
Adjacent to the pool there is a character fully self-contained pool house ideal for extended family or as a teenage hangout.

There is huge potential to add your touch to this magnificent property and plans are available that were previously consented to enhance the home in keeping with the history and not detracting from the current elegance.

The property is rich in history and has a varied and interesting past as you would expect after over 180 years since being constructed as the farmhouse looking over St George's Bay and known as the City Farm back in the day.

Rarely available in this part of Parnell and so close to the CBD, Parnell Village and the waterfront, this really is a must-view property if you are looking for something unique and special.

Call us now for a private viewing or come to one of our advertised open homes and experience a blast from the past with a very exciting future.
