A 3D walkthrough is available for qualifying buyers. Please contact us for access.

Hilltop, designed in 1904 by Dunedin architects Salmond and Lawson, is steeped in history, offering expansive interior spaces with sweeping city, harbour and ocean views.

The Residence: The grand entrance of this stately home, with its broad steps and ornate frontage, warmly receives you. A tiled foyer immediately captivates with its sweeping central staircase, decorative ceilings, stained glass and breath-taking period elements. Immersed in luxurious interiors, the living room is superbly presented offering views, a character fireplace and opulent plaster ceiling. A discrete home office adjoins. Contemporary, yet cohesive, the open plan dining / kitchen is ideal for entertaining, with up-to-date appliances and wood-burner. The pillared informal entry gives access to an exterior deck. Positioned over two levels with a 322m2 (+/-) floor area, extensive accommodation is provided throughout. Four large double bedrooms (three offering direct veranda access) plus one single, each with a stunning outlook, and serviced by four well-appointed bathrooms (two being ensuites with underfloor heating). Throughout the years this diverse layout has allowed this home to be used as a boutique-style bed and breakfast, with aptly named bedrooms reminiscent of its history.

The Garden: Enveloped by beautifully manicured plantings, the landscaping is exquisite. The harmonious water feature adds a tranquil element as does the corner suntrap, perfect for soaking in the surroundings. A decked area is provided off the kitchen, plus expansive verandas on both levels. Additional highlights include six heat pumps, an HRV system, wood-burner, solar panels, substantial double glazing and two garages.

The Location: Perfectly placed, this unequivocal High Street location is sure to appeal being within easy reach of the Dunedin CBD, schools public transport and the Mornington shops. Your central Hilltop residence with historic refinement cordially welcomes your interest and consideration.
