Encapsulating Kauri Villa

  • 5 Beds
  • 4 Baths

The execution of this exceptional Kauri Villa restoration has encapsulated and magnified the original heritage from circa 1900. Relocated from Auckland to the hills of Parua Bay in 2002, the villa was built in 1912 and later used as a Nunnery. It was then bequeathed by the Bourne family, Mr Bourne being famous for his photography of the Auckland and local life.

Today when you arrive, the breathtaking sea views and grand residence are awe-inspiring and some may say it has become an iconic landmark'. There was no expense spared while the home was extended and restored with meticulous attention to detail. All new build components were specially made to match the existing character with the total face lift comprising of, new gib on internal walls, insulation throughout, completely re-wired and re-plumbed, modern seals on doors and windows, HRV system, a new 600 L hot water cylinder along with solar panels, new fire with wetback and a central heating system, bringing the home up to today's expected level of thermal resistance while being energy efficient. Finished with all the traditional embellishments, the double door entrance, traditional cornice, sash windows with drapery, polished staircase and the Kauri floorboards are just the beginning of the impressive features.
The addition of the inground solar heated swimming pool and the Pool House' creates an extensive entertaining complex and ideal events venue. A generous 150sqm provides ample space for guest accomodation, a billiard table, an open wood fire in the parlour, gym room, his and hers changing rooms with toilets and showers, kitchenette/laundry, and the perfect spot for the spa pool.

To own a home of history and authentic character in this extraordinary location is a world class opportunity for those who adore the like, and are pursuing an opulent lifestyle or new venture on our stunning Whangarei coastline.
