Proudly positioned above Ann Street in Roslyn sits a distinctive family home in a sun-drenched position.

Designed by Bob Middleditch and built by acclaimed master builder Ron Kingston, this is a residence of rare quality and substance that awaits only its third owner to add their own signature.

 

The distinctive design is complimented by the quality of construction. Heart Rimu and Matai was used throughout and the concrete foundations for the large garage and basement were three times what was considered normal. The Takaka stone fireplace and bluestone walls were constructed by master stonemason  Bernie Childs. The upper level was clad in split block Summerhill Stone and finished with a distinctive Bell-cast roof. 

 

This home flows nicely with a sun-drenched terrace leading you into the entry foyer. Two double bedrooms (the front master bedroom has French doors accessing the terrace), an office and central family bathroom (with separate shower and spa bath) are well positioned with the dining, kitchen and living room on the opposite wing. The separate laundry room is positioned behind the kitchen, with an internal staircase to the basement tandem garage, workshop and storage rooms, separate toilet and a large rumpus room, that has been used as both a games room and a bedroom. A warm home given its north-west aspect, there's ceiling and underfloor insulation, with most upstairs glazing fitted with MagicSeal retrofit double glazing. There is substantial storage throughout and some neat features which you must inspect to appreciate.

 

There's plenty of solar gain in this peaceful sun-trap, with an easy walk to Roslyn Village. Discerning buyers will appreciate this home, its potential, and location.

Luxurious waterfront lifestyle
Saint Leonard's Lodge, 1 Tui Street

St Leonard's Lodge presents a unique dual home and income opportunity. This spectacular waterfront setting offers a breathtaking panorama of the Otago Harbour and Peninsula.

The original homestead, Aorangi, was built circa 1907, is one of New Zealand's finest historic homes, and is deservingly protected by the Historic Places Trust. This much admired home has been lovingly restored and extensively renovated by its current owners to the highest standards and offers boutique, luxury accommodation, and a beautiful family residence.

 

Centrally heated by a ducted heatpump system, modern elements combine seamlessly without detracting from the glorious period features of this magnificent home.

 

Alongside Aorangi sits a second home, Tui House, that was constructed by the owners in 2004 to reside in while they extensively improved Aorangi. Light and fresh, this home offers modern accommodation consisting of three bedrooms, all with ensuite bathrooms, with a central kitchen and living room.

Whether you are seeking a stunning waterfront home or a luxury stay business, this situation is highly appealing and offers flexibility to meet your family's requirements.

There are a number of possible options around the sale that can be negotiated, including:

 

The property can be subdivided, being a total land area of 4,707sqm (more or less) of freehold land, being Lot 8 and Part Lot 5, 6, 7. The simplest subdivision would be to have the new boundary between the two houses, so Lot 8 and Part Lot 7 (approx. 2,297sqm) becomes the land for the Lodge "Aorangi" and Part Lot 6 and 5 (approx. 2,420sqm) become the land for "Tui House".

Refer to the Certificate of Title and the aerial photo on council rates information details below, and the video has great aerial views.

This would be subject to survey, approval, and new titles being issued, a process that takes some months, but the sale can be subject to this. This may be an attractive option for someone looking to purchase the Lodge but not wanting the second home.

 

The owners are registered for Goods & Services Tax, being a GST registered company. If you purchase and are GST registered, this means that you pay the purchase price plus GST (which you then claim back) and the owners receive this and pay GST on the sale.

If you are not GST registered and don't intend to register for GST, you may offer the purchase price inclusive of GST. This may be an attractive option for someone purchasing the Lodge but not intending to run it as a business. Purchasers should seek advice from their lawyer and/or accountant before making an offer. Contact me if you wish to discuss these or any other options.
