Expansive Character Villa with ornate period pieces lovingly kept throughout, this is a unique family home in the rapidly growing suburb of Mount Albert. There are some truly stunning character features throughout from the warm wood paneling to the custom plastered ceilings, right down to the stained lead light windows that carry the same pattern of flower throughout the residence. Sitting high off the road with northerly views out to the harbour and to the Waitakere Ranges, this amazing property has stood proudly as one of Mount Alberts grandest homes since 1910. A modern kitchen has been added more recently complimented by the low maintenance but wonderfully detailed garden which includes a bonus sleep out. The main floor up stairs features four Bedrooms, three Bathrooms, Large formal Lounge, a study and an open plan kitchen and dinning room. What really surprises is the huge rumpus room down stairs that's set up as a granny flat come home cinema with a fifth bedroom, bathroom, kitchenette and ample storage. The opportunities are many for this space as you could potentially set up a live work office, air bnb or investors may like the opportunity afforded by the rental potential. The opportunities don't end there as this property sits on the highly desirable land of Business - Mixed Use Zoning and is a half share of a total 1626m². The area is teaming with services like the Mount Albert Village, Bus and Train stops, Unitec, Gladstone and Mount Albert Grammar School all within walking distance. Mount Albert is a community-orientated suburb with easy access to parks and playgrounds located seven kilometres from central Auckland. Mount Albert also borders the Aquatic Centre, Zoo, Motat and Western Springs Park, so there is always plenty to do on weekends. The main stretch of Mt Albert contains a great selection of shops and dining opportunities, and with highway access and public transport aplenty, it's an ideal location for residents.
