Elegance on Eglinton

Elegance, grandeur and a little bit of intrigue are the elements that capture you as you enter this stunning property from Eglinton Road. Often admired and unmistakable with its signature Silver Birch gracing its entrance, this home boasts provenance having been owned by Charles Howden in 1870, a founder of the first Golf Club in New Zealand. Subsequently owned by William Henderson, steward to William Larnach, two of the Marble Fireplaces may have in fact originated from William Larnachs many projects.

Arriving at Eglinton Road, you are first greeted with a fabulous north facing courtyard bathed in morning sun and a multitude of French doors allowing this home to spill open to take advantage of the first rays of sun and provide you with extensive outdoor living. The ballroom, on the east side of the property, with its incredible sprung floor, was added in 1890 and now is purposed as a light filled spacious family living room.

The well-appointed kitchen is generous in size with the family dining area adjacent, providing a central hub for entertaining both family and friends. Down the central hallway are three generous bedrooms, with the first being a magnificent master suite that bestows a true sense of luxury. The large bathroom offers a standalone bath, shower and double vanity unit. Leading from the bedroom on the other side is a decadent dressing room that you will truly get lost in.

With an additional two bedrooms in this wing along with a separate bathroom, a large family is certainly well catered for. On the west side of the home, there is a fourth bedroom, separate bathroom and either an additional living room, home office or alternatively this could be a sixth bedroom offering functionality for any number of family combinations.

Further to all of these extensive options, there is also a one-bedroom self-contained unit with its own access directly off Eglinton Road. With so much on offer, your inspection of this magnificent property is a must this weekend.
