Charm and character are always attractive qualities in a property and you ll find them in abundance at the magnificent heritage home at 2 Tawini Rd in tranquil Titirangi. The epitome of style and elegance, this residence s charm is matched by the loveliness of its location -- from its grandstand position on what is one of Titirangi s most sought-after streets, you enjoy stunning views of the Auckland skyline and the harbour. Fringed by native bush, the ultra spacious 1674 square metre site incorporates landscaped gardens, courtyards and speciman trees. There s even a potter s shed on the boundary which is serviced by three phase power. The home itself was commissioned in the 1950s to exacting standards for prominent Auckland businessman Sir Tom Clark of Crown Lynn Pottery and Ceramco, sponsor of Whitbread Round the World Races and Sir Peter Blake s America s Cup campaigns. Now after a thorough and carefully thought out renovation, its heritage features which include ornate cornices, rich timber floors, craftman s finishes and a tradesman s entrance are complemented by a stunning new designer kitchen, contemporary bathrooms and an HRV system. Without a doubt, one of the home s most impressive spaces would have to be the sun-lit open plan living and dining area, of which the spectacular view is a stand out feature. It opens out to an expansive wrap-around deck that s perfect for entertaining. There are three bedrooms on the upper level, including the spacious master which flows out onto a private verandah. These rooms are served by a separate toilet and a well appointed tiled bathroom. But of course it doesn t end there. The magic continues downstairs where you ll discover a second spacious living area, fourth bedroom and extra bathroom. There s also a storage room which would make an ideal wine cellar. All in all, this property provides buyers with everything they could wish for and so much more! 2 Tawini Rd will go to auction on site on February 15 at 2.30pm and can be viewed at the open homes Saturday and Sunday from 11am to 11.30am and 1pm to 1.30pm as well as twilight viewing on Thursday from 5.45pm to 6.30pm.
