Modern build with heritage charm

Tucked away up a private right of way off Mt Eden’s prominent Bellevue Road, number 69c is an enticing blend of old and new. Built only 13 years ago, the residence was designed and built to capture the heritage character and charm of a villa, but with the contemporary comforts and peace of mind of a new build.

Despite the peace and quiet at home, the location is only minutes’ walk from Countdown, Dominion Road’s vibrant array of bars and eateries and public transport routes. The excellent school zoning is another huge drawcard for families, including Auckland Grammar, Mt Albert Grammar and Mt Eden Primary.

The dedication and attention to detail that has gone into the design is exceptional, replicating the period architecture with precision and care. The two-level residence is enveloped within 400m2 of freehold land and established gardens, which enhance the picture-perfect weatherboard construction and veranda out front.

Inside, solid timber floors, wooden joinery and high ornate ceilings create an elegant ambience, enhanced with leadlights and the handcrafted central staircase.  The five-bedroom, two-and-a-half-bathroom home has a flexible layout, which will cater to all kinds of living arrangements.


The ground floor entry foyer flows into the open-plan dining and kitchen, where bifolds open out to the north-facing deck and alfresco entertaining area. There’s a breakfast bar in the country-style kitchen, as well as wooden bench tops and a feature Rangemaster oven. Double doors open into the cosy formal lounge, where a rich colour scheme, chandelier and grand carved timber fireplace create a cosy place to relax and unwind.

Bricks sourced from yards around Auckland have been used to create the library/ study area, which then steps down into what was previously an internal garage, but is currently used as a rumpus room. Wooden steps sourced from a ship arrive to the top floor loft space and bedroom – the perfect retreat for teenagers who want some privacy. A small wooden railing up here sits in front of a barn-style door, creating an intimate balcony.

There is one bedroom on the ground floor, while the remaining three are located upstairs. Sash windows illuminate the large double rooms with light and the master has a walk-in wardrobe and ensuite. All the bathrooms throughout are finished to the same standard, utilising fittings and finishes to perfectly suit the theme.

The bespoke detailing and exceptional craftsmanship of this home will delight those with a passion for historical properties, but who seek a warm, insulated and modern living environment.
