Featured Property

22 Emily Place, Auckland Central

They don't build them like this anymore, so step back in time through the unique foyer and let the soaring high stud, exposed brick, and concrete features welcome you home.

Original steel framed windows are perfectly positioned to soak up the afternoon sun, serene vista of Emily Place Reserve, and the neighbouring trees and Carlisle Building.

This eclectic space has been conceived for relaxation, with an open plan kitchen and huge living room providing three distinct spaces for you to layout as you desire. Pendant lighting and bio-ethanol fireplaces draw the warmth of original brick and illuminate the unique polished concrete floors. Entertain guests from the large black granite island bench or position yourself in the dining area for a more formal tree lined setting.

After your guests have gone retreat to the luxurious bathroom to soak in the freestanding tub or revel under the rain shower faucet in the double walk-in shower, there's even a dedicated makeup-come-grooming station. The master bedroom boasts a large walk-in-wardrobe and the second bedroom is a fantastic flexi-space for guests or a home office. Both flexi spaces offer a unique studio-style of living with stunning steel framed internal doors.

This large floor plan is completed with fabulous custom shelving, ceiling and extraction fans for ventilation, a walk in laundry, plenty of internal storage and the option to rent an external locker.
