28 Darwin Lane, Remuera, Auckland.
This was a 1242sqm, $8.5 million residential build positioned on the edge of the Orakei Basin. It was a 2 ½ year project competed within the timeline and budget. The build included $2 million of extensive pilling, retaining and site works and was more of a light commercial build than residential. The 6 bedroom residence included 8 car garaging and living and entertaining areas on each of its 6 levels.
This highly spec'd masonry home features top of the line smart wiring imported from the US with off grid back up generators for the property. It also has a custom built cable cart lift designed especially for travelling down the 7 levels of the house on a 45 degree slope.
The building itself was constructed from a steel superstructure and concrete block. Other features included his and her ensuites, walk-in wardrobes, state of the art media room, and a fully self-contained ground floor with entertaining and accommodation flowing to the pool.
