4 Lorne Street, Auckland Central
Nestled behind the bustle of Queen Street, discover a world where art, architecture and international cuisine reign supreme - at the intriguing Lorne Street Lofts.
One studio apartment steeped in history has been immaculately refurbished for sale to maximise space and light - and guarantee a stylish central position for metropolitan students or city-pad seekers.
Backed by a history as colourful as the neighbouring galleries, the Lofts date back to the 1800's where they were transformed for use as the Turkish Baths in 1913 and again, converted to apartments in 1996.
Despite an enchanting character facade and elegant details throughout the stairwell, it is flawlessly contemporary inside unit 1A, where polished timber flooring, white-washed walls and stainless-steel appliances blend together to create an idyllic urban space.
Certainly, a high-powered rental asset worthy of investor's attention, this desirable lock-up-and-leave abode is equally suitable for the part-time resident, local university student or first-home buyer looking for a quality foothold on Auckland's property ladder.
