Sitting proudly at the prestigious top end of Arney Road, this historic Remuera estate on a rare 3,062 square meters is ready for a new family to take the helm. Known as St Ann's and enjoyed by just three owners since it was built in 1914 for Charles Nathan, it has been lovingly restored and meticulously maintained by its current custodians, who have enjoyed its innumerable benefits for 36 years.
The interior of the home is grand, yet welcoming, with a layout that spans across two floors at almost 553 square meters plus a church-sized attic. Upon arrival in the light-filled double height entrance hall you are drawn through several character rooms woven seamlessly together, referred to in the original plans as the Morning Room, Drawing Room, and Sun Room; and now joined by a two-story Library. The dining room is big enough to hold the most expansive dinner parties, whilst the kitchen opens to a landscaped garden.
The upper level is just as spacious in design and proportion, with six bedrooms, three of which are ensuited, including the master retreat with floor to ceiling windows overlooking the gardens, ample wardrobes and a stunning marble ensuite with equal views. There is also a family bathroom, study and scope to renovate or reconfigure the rooms. Under the house or in the large attic there is space providing further opportunity to remodel.
The terraced and landscaped grounds come complete with two brick-walled sunken gardens, a cherry walk and a traditional folly covered in copper as the focal point of the formal geometric-patterned parterre. There is abundant room for a pool and the lower lawn provides a level opportunity for a tennis court if so desired.
Residences of this high calibre and beauty rarely come on the market.
