Featured Property

'The Citizen' 10-12 Exmouth Street, Eden Terrace

West is always best and at penthouse level it doesn't get any better than this! This brand new city fringe apartment embraces the sun by day and the city by night, offering sweeping views of the Waitakere Ranges, Auckland Harbour and Harbour Bridge, and Basque Park. As well as the perfect vantage point to watch the fireworks off the Sky Tower come New Years Eve.

This two bedroom, two bathroom, plus flexi-room, city fringe home oozes contemporary cool with calm Nordic tones, amplified by 2.8m (approx.) ceilings and feature track lighting. Take in the vista through the glass balustrade on the huge balcony that spans the full width of the apartment, designed for uber-chic entertaining.

The master bedroom is equipped with a large walk through wardrobe and luxurious ensuite bathroom; you don't have to share with dual sinks, and a separate shower and standalone bathtub. The second bedroom enjoys direct access to the sun drenched balcony and a leafy green aspect of Basque Park. And the third flexi room easily fits a queen sized bed, or could be the perfect media room.

No detail has been spared; from the fully tiled bathrooms and copper fixtures and fittings, to the black powder coated aluminium feature lighting throughout. Cooking connoisseurs will love the double ovens and huge pantry space.

Other features include two secure carparks, two large internal storage cupboards in addition to the external storage lockers in the basement, and a heat pump.

The location is exceptional - across the road from Basque Park and in zone for Auckland Grammar schools. An easy distance to Queen Street, Mt Eden, Ponsonby, Newmarket and the transport hubs.
