Magical home and garden for the perfect summer Xmas

An elegant double-storey 1860s villa set on a double section, with a European style walled garden and just 20 seconds walk to Ponsonby Road with its many shops, cafes and restaurants. The house is furnished with a mix of new and antique furniture, and contemporary art to create a comfortable, yet stylish background for your special Christmas down under. Suitable for 4 adults. It is currently being painted and re-roofed with new insulation and the bedrooms are having a repaint - so photos of all that to come!

The house comes with an adorable champagne tabby called George, (13) who requires lots of love and cuddles, meals on time and permission to sleep on your bed, lap etc.

About the location

Freemans Bay/Ponsonby is one of Auckland`s most popular suburbs. Settled in the 1860s, it features tree-lined streets of circa 1860-1920s houses that have been faithfully restored to their former glory. Ponsonby Road provides everything a visitor could desire - from award-winning cafes and restaurants to supermarkets, boutiques and speciality shops. Pohutukawa fringed golden sand beaches are 5-10 minutes drive from our front door and the central city is a similar distance, or a pleasant 25-minute walk. We are serviced by an excellent bus service, with a stop at the top of our street.
