Herne Bay, Auckland

Beautiful heritage family home with harbour views

About our home

Westhaven was built in 1925 and retains its character features whilst offering the best in modern living.

The ground floor features two sitting rooms. One is formal and can be closed off from the rest of the house by doors that slide out from wall recesses.

Facing the magnificent blue-tiled fireplace is a bay window, one of two on the first level. The other bay window is in the master bedroom, which also features a massive wardrobe and en suite with a bath and shower.

Next to the sitting room is the dining room, which leads to a sun room - perfect for relaxing in. Each window provides views of the upper harbour.

The kitchen is at the end of a long room that almost runs the length of the house. It is separated from the rest of the space by a large island work bench and a large, six-burner Ilve stove sits against the wall.

This area of the house flows to a paved patio that surrounds a 2m-deep, boat-shaped pool. It’s warm and sheltered, and has an outside dining room with a fireplace. There’s also an outside shower, shielded from the neighbours by hedges and trees.

Up the sweeping staircase are four bedrooms and another bathroom.

The stairway is wide enough to make a dramatic entrance, and has a beautiful chandelier hanging over it.

The rooms upstairs are well-proportioned, and the north-west corner bedroom has a lovely paved deck off it with blue-chip views to the north west.

Completing the full entertainment package is a home cinema in the bottom of the house.

We are in Herne Bay which is on the main bus routes and right beside the central city.
