Downsizing and looking for an apartment you can still call home? This exquisite penthouse located in the character filled George Courts has been a utopian home to its owner since it was built.
One of only three in this historic building that face K Rd and have commanding northern views over the CBD to the Auckland Harbour Bridge and Rangitoto Island.
Glide through the stately entrance way and take the curve around the floating stairs and past the panelled study and you will have arrived. Traversing two levels and encompassing approx. 200 square metres, this elegant 3 bed, 2 bath apartment comes with additional study/library and a 3rd WC downstairs for guests. Complete with double internal garage in the secure underground basement, parking, storage and security are taken care of.
Upstairs are three double bedrooms, the master offering an ensuite with spa and private balcony and the other two with an adjacent bathroom including bath. The master bedroom’s private balcony has a unique bird’s nest view of urban Auckland and the notable landscapes beyond.
On the main floor, the brand new state of the art kitchen with Miele appliances flows through to the living room with comfortable seating areas and dining section all which beckon you out towards to the breath-taking terrace. An added bonus is the under floor storage areas running almost the full length of the apartment.
The George Court & Sons Department Store built in 1926 is one of Karangahape Road’s landmark buildings. Following the closure of the store in 1988 the building was converted into an apartment building in 1993. Recently refurbished sweeping staircase, oversized wooden landings and stunning entry foyer with atrium access are just a few of the impressive features of this highly sought after building. Recent upgrades have included two brand new elevators. Vendor is leaving; take full advantage of this moment.
