This glorious Georgian Colonial style home is set on tree-lined Jordan Terrace right in the heart of Lansdowne. Thoughtfully positioned to capture all day sun and set on 1.1 hectares of private land, it is tucked away but elevated to give breathtaking views of the surrounding mountains and valleys.
This historic two-story residence was originally designed in 1939 by well-known Wellington Architect William Grey Young and built to a very high standard for a local doctor's family. The current owners are only the third family to own this majestic property and have maintained it beautifully.
The grand entrance foyer draws guests into the large country style kitchen and flows easily into three living areas with an elegant dining room, formal living and inviting family room, all with enchanting character. A wood burner fire creates a naturally cosy ambience, or use the heat pumps, for fast efficient warmth which includes ducted heat pump system on the upper story.
Glide up the staircase to the second floor, which leads to 3 large bedrooms and a new family bathroom, all with picture windows overlooking the sprawling grounds. The master bedroom has a generous walk-in dressing room and ensuite. There is also an inviting guest bedroom wing complete with spacious living area and ensuite which could be a possible B&B, a teenager's haven or perfect for a nanny.
The covered courtyard is amazing for indoor/outdoor entertaining year-round and as you would expect of a home of this calibre there is an inground fully heated swimming pool surrounded by stunning views. Between this stately home and mountains lies an expansive manicured lawn and exciting bush-clad hillside. The property has two double garages and plenty of off-street parking.
