Western Homes : January 13th 2011
2 Thursday, January 13, 2011 Western Homes Vintage harvest for developers Landmark site: The old Mayfair site covers 1605 square metres of prime residential land. On the level: A perfectly flat corner site with plenty of road access. The cellars: Presently in disrepair, they could possibly be restored for commercial use. Secure garaging: On one corner of this impressive site. Great views: From the Waitakeres to the Coromandel! There s no doubt that Auckland s wine makers owe everything to Henderson s pioneer wine growers of the early 1900s. The Corbans led the way of course; others followed and from the 1940s until quite recently there has been a Mayfair Wine Cellar on Sturges Rd. But now with the vendor s retirement the cellar shutters have gone up, the wine stocks have all been sold -- and an outstanding Sturges Rd prop- erty has come onto the mar- ket! The 1605 square metre site at 194 Sturges Rd enjoys a spectacular location. An almost spirit-level straight square of ground just beyond the Henderson Heights and Palm Heights developments, the original Mayfair Winery affords views from the Waita- keres to the Coromandel ranges in one stunningly broad vista! This is a corner site, neigh- bouring an enclave of quality homes. It offers a range of options for development. There are four potential residential sites each with their own road access and a perfect platform for building. Alternatively you could explore the possibilities of restoring the winery building (which is currently in a state of disrepair) for commercial use under existing use rights for consideration by council. The area, which is endowed with several great schools, has been further enhanced by the Twin Streams project which links pathways across a wide stretch of Henderson s recreational reserve land. It is also close to train transport and Henderson central, yet only minutes from the unspoilt Henderson Valley. As the land is surplus to the vendor s requirements, a quick sale is impending, with a price indication available on application. This is a rare opportunity -- a prime spot which has been highly prized for 65 years and now finally on the market. The neighbouring house on 2897 square metres will also be coming onto the market in the next few weeks and could be included in the develop- ment.
