Tour of a Grand Auckland Villa

Thought you would like to have a quick tour through Maria's home she shares  with her gorgeous family, in Auckland.

This grand old home was built in the early 1900's and has been extensively renovated with an additional upper level at the rear. A very tasteful renovation has retained original features whilst incorporating this home into an open and family friendly space.

A stunning feature in a second downstairs bathroom off the hallway - a little recessed tiled nook and the hand basin is a stunning silver salad bowl.

The enormous family bathroom is downstairs and features the stained glass window over the claw bath and a working fireplace!

This is hubby's shed at the rear of the property.

I hope you enjoyed your tour of this amazing home. Thanks Maria!

A beautiful villa restoration - I always dreamed of living in a grand villa like this.
We had an old bungalow with bay windows yet I always yearned for a villa!!
Take care
