Built in 1908 for Sir Edmund Hillary's maternal grandmother, Harriet Clarke, this four to five-bedroom villa has a rich and remarkable history. Relocated from Mt Eden to Warkworth in early 2014, it was the heart of the Hillary family for many years and carries many stories.

Set in a prime north facing position with wide views, this grand villa plays host to exquisite original features such as pressed tin ceilings, leadlight windows and ornate, decorative fireplaces but still has a practical floorplan for a modern family.

The gourmet kitchen is a real highlight, with quality appliances and a walk-in pantry ensuring the ability to cater to any and every occasion. Ample accommodation is provided by the four good-sized bedrooms, plus rumpus/study or fifth bedroom, while generous living areas and a well-appointed family bathroom add further appeal. Underfloor central heating provides comfort year-round. Outside, the private, north-facing grounds of approximately 3,128sqm are sure to be the scene of many happy memories and one could explore the prospect of adding a minor dwelling. Vine sheltered entertaining areas, sun-soaked decks and plenty of lawn mean the opportunities out here are virtually endless, with off-street parking providing room for guests.

As if the home's many attributes weren't enticing enough, the location too is superb with the proximity to the motorway and every imaginable amenity adding further value.

The decision to part with this unique family home was a difficult one to reach. But our vendors' thoughts are now firmly fixed on the next chapter in their lives, and they are determined to achieve a result on, if not before, auction day. Homes of this calibre are rare, and interest will inevitably be high. Immediate action is advised - contact me today for further details.
