An icon of its era, this villa is a testament to traditional architecture, weaving together a storied past with contemporary comforts near the city fringe. Villa Rosa sits radiant above other homes in an area, throne-like on the hill in 870sqm of Italianate, stepped terrace garden.
Offering a multitude of options, a new family home, artist retreat, wedding venue, boutique bed and breakfast so close to the city centre , Villa Rosa will appeal to a lover of history and heritage.
Enter the grand hallway and be prepared to be amazed at the beautifully restored heart Rimu floorboards, then step into the lounge (a former acoustically enhanced music room) marvel at the high stud, elegant ceiling roses and one of many Rimu or marble fireplaces, with decorative tiles. The baby grand piano remains as a tribute to the room.
Offering five generous bedrooms, each with their own character features. There are two spacious bathrooms for family living and a large laundry area that doubles as a sunroom, basking in natural light. With multiple heat-pumps and an efficient fire, comfort is assured throughout all the seasons.
The kitchen is a picture of practical design and features a large oven with gas hobs, enjoying a walk-in pantry and a convivial space to entertain. The Villa’s kitchen and decorative verandah affords views to the central city and trees of the new Te Ara Otakaro- Avon River trail.
Stunning outdoor surroundings are enriched by enchanting gardens maintained by an irrigation system and a dedicated barbecue area, perfect for alfresco entertaining.
With its rich history, elegant character, and timeless design, this property is not just a house but a living legacy.
