House Sold - Northland Wellington
Have you been searching for a luxurious lifestyle and design benchmark? Then this Northland property will not disappoint; the unique property bears all the hallmarks of iconic architecture, which would sit equally at home in Los Angeles or Palm Springs. Not only did the house win three awards for Gerard Parsonson but it was inspired by the legacy of one of the 20th century’s most significant modernist architects, Los Angeles-based Richard Neutra, and offers the following features and benefits:
• A stunning 500-square metre design built in 2001 on a 1575sqm ridgeline site with amazing sun and breath-taking views • Six spacious double bedrooms, and three full bathrooms as well as a guest powder room • Combines an exterior of wood, cement and expansive glass, while inside you will find hardwood and polished concrete floors with timber paneling • Features home automation, underfloor heating, three-car garaging and a wine cellar • Extraordinary indoor-outdoor living with a central living/dining pavilion that flows out both sides – with a sheltered, west-facing courtyard on one side and an east-facing terrace stretching towards the city and harbour on the other • There is an entertainer’s kitchen, which forms part of the house’s northern wing, along with a family room and a utility room with laundry facilities • In the southern wing are a large TV or media room, a guest bedroom with harbour views and an ensuite • Stairs lead to three more bedrooms that face the harbour, two that look towards the western hills, and a study
The design has brilliantly stood the test of time and remains largely the same as Gerald Parsonson’s original concept. It’s now due for a maintenance birthday, and there is plenty of scope for the new owner to add their stamp on the home and even realise new opportunities to add value such as the potential to add the swimming pool that was part of the original design. Call to book viewing. Tender closes at 2 pm, Wednesday 27 November 2019, at Tommys Real Estate, 209 Victoria St.
