Hellaby House, from it origins in late 19th Century Remuera, moved to it's current Karaka location 12 years ago. A most elegant country home, complete with equestrian facilities, it holds the luxury of being extremely private with the long gated driveway approach, amid easy maintenance gardens, setting the scene and tone of the welcome that waits beyond. Restored over three years, the 452sqm of Ralph Lauren inspired interiors pay gentle tribute to the grandeur and scale of the homes vintage. Wide ship lap boards, signature batten detailing, artisan fixtures and imported European accents all work in harmony to form a home with a timeless feel. Ideally suited to modern family living, a mixture of formal and informal areas for entertaining and relaxing are anchored by the designer kitchen - the heart of the home. Large in scale, with Carrara marble work surfaces, it is complemented with an equally proportioned scullery which gives license to entertain on a grand scale. Revel in the master suite, with dressing room, sitting room and
ensuite, all overlooking the surrounding greenery. Three further bedrooms and bathrooms make up the main home.
Two high quality horse boxes with associated tack and feed rooms plus wash bay make a stable block - easily converted for those owners looking to add to the already ample garaging. The garage barn' itself has space for 5 vehicles, workshop/studio and a huge space above presents further options for accommodation, leisure or business. Situated on what locals call the Northern Slopes', this most sought after of semi-rural addresses is only 40km from the heart of Auckland city. Complete with the benefits of a rural lifestyle you have motorways 13km away, private schooling 10km distance and a popular country school very nearby. Rich in heart and heritage, Hellaby House must be one of the most beautiful and rarest offerings on the market for sale. We encourage your soonest inspection.
