They don’t make them like this any more, which helps explain the price achieved for this stunning Arts and Crafts house in Huia Street, Devonport.

The fully renovated property, designed by architect Lloyd Bates in 1929, sold for $3.3 million during lockdown Level 4, which is $650,000 above the $2.65 million CV.

Billionaires’ move – The Mowbray siblings now own Kim Dotcom’s former mansion.

However, listing agent Linda Simmons of Bayleys Devonport says the property deserved that price: “The CV was low given the quality of the renovation. This is such a unique home, and the buyers, who viewed it on the second weekend of open homes, absolutely fell in love with it.”

Simmons says the new owners, a young local couple with four children, were obvious contenders from their first visit: “The woman said she has driven past this house so often, she always thought it would be her dream home if it ever came on the market.”
