A historic villa in one of Auckland‘s most prestigious locations has hit the market, but it comes with a hefty price tag of $8 million.

The five-bedroom, four-bathroom villa was built in 1908 and sits on a 1,293 square metre site in Parnell. The property boasts stunning views of the Auckland Harbour and is located in close proximity to some of the city’s most exclusive restaurants, shops, and galleries.

The villa has been impeccably restored, with careful attention paid to retaining its original character features. The interior is a mix of period and contemporary design, with high ceilings, ornate cornices, and polished wooden floors complemented by modern fixtures and fittings.

The property is surrounded by beautifully landscaped gardens, with a large outdoor entertaining area and a swimming pool. There is also a separate self-contained apartment on the property, perfect for guests or a live-in nanny.

Potential buyers will be impressed by the villa’s location, which is surrounded by some of Auckland’s most exclusive properties. The neighbours include the Prime Minister’s official residence, Premier House, and the historic St Stephens Chapel.

Despite the property’s high price tag, real estate experts believe it is unlikely to be on the market for long. The demand for high-end properties in Auckland is strong, with many buyers looking for luxurious homes in prime locations.
