Blomfield House

This magnificent heritage home takes a commanding presence and boasts one of the most splendid views in Freemans Bay. You’ll be captivated by the private parklike grounds with the large lawn and heated swimming pool, then lift your gaze - you’ll be mesmerised by the cityscape, Sky Tower and Rangitoto. This home is picture perfect and you’ll love sharing it with friends and family.

Enjoy seamless indoor – outdoor flow, a large wrap-around verandah that steps down to the manicured lawn, life is easy here for feet both big and small. A garden of this size is rare in Freemans Bay, there’s plenty of room for a treehouse or trampoline or simply enjoy as is.

Entertaining is a breeze with a well-appointed kitchen, dining and family lounge for guests to spread out. Each room feels generous, in part thanks to the soaring stud height but also due to the grand proportions that abound in this fantastic family home where there is something for everyone.

Upstairs the master suite features the jaw dropping view; wake to the sunrise as it glows golden in the sky. There are another three bedrooms and family bathroom on the top floor.

Downstairs on the lower level is an additional bedroom, bathroom and separate living area – perfect for visiting family or friends or great accommodation for an au pair.

Steeped in history, the heritage home was built by Samuel Blomfield, brother of painter Charles Blomfield and the pair sourced kauri from the Coromandel for the house. It is understood Charles lived in the home from 1880-1926 and painted on the balcony as well as sold paintings from the site. Character elements prevail with beautiful architraves and panel walls framing the hallway and formal lounge, yet it’s been brought into modern times and includes tiled bathrooms and kitchen, internal garage access and central heating.

There’s plenty of storage throughout plus what could be the perfect mancave - a secondary garage / workshop accessible from Ryle Street. 

Here’s a piece of history, never to be repeated – this unique estate ticks so many boxes and will be a home to love for years to come.
