13B Puketiro Avenue This multi level property has so much to offer – panoramic views of the city, great sun, open plan and spacious living areas, three double bedrooms, two bathrooms, enchanting flat private garden, drive on access into a double garage - plus a choice of wonderful spaces in which to entertain - and so much more! The property was designed by Fritz Eisenhofer, who was one of Wellington’s best known architects from the 60’s to the early 80’s. Fritz’s distinctive style was one of creating a perception of space flowing together. The living area of 13B is a true classic example of Fritz Eisenhofer’s work. The house has great flow and invites one to move from one room to the another; from living to kitchen and from dining room to the balcony - where the postcard views of Wellington are simply spectacular. The house has been designed for both family life and with entertainment in mind. The redesigned kitchen allows for the work areas to remain absolutely functional while entertaining guests, preparing the next course - or simply having a conversation with those unexpected guests. The home has a sense of space yet it is cosy,

comfortable for those cold winter nights at home, with indoor/outdoor living for the summer. A few steps up from the garage and along a short path edged with garden, scented with daphne and massed with colour, is the front door area - which welcomes you into the house. Straight ahead is the kitchen - which flows to the spacious dining and living rooms and deck - with fabulous views to the city. To the right of the entrance is a light infused staircase, which wends its way up to the garden level and then the bedrooms. On the garden level is a bathroom, laundry, toilet and access to the garden at the rear – and on the next level are the three bedrooms, bathroom and a separate toilet. Built to embrace a spectacular section, stunning views and sun, this property offers relaxed living as well as fabulous spaces for entertaining – or maybe the combination of the two! Warm, neutral tones, easy care floors, quality drapes and fittings – all combine to achieve understated simplicity, elegance and comfort.


Situated in one of Northland’s best streets, a short walk to the bus stop or a leisurely stroll through the bush to Tinakori Hill and the Botanical Gardens. This is a rare opportunity to enjoy an enviable lifestyle. It is a must see for professional couples, singles or small families.

Parade on a summer’s day or the fireworks that dazzle just below on 5 November! This is the place to be!

Views This property enjoys panoramic views, from each level, over the city and beyond. Watch the ferry as it comes into and out of the harbour and behind the heads as it sails to Picton. Watch planes as they take off and land at Wellington airport carrying their passengers to far away places. Sit and watch the reflection of the sunset then later dine with lights of the city twinkling below you as you entertain your guests. Be fascinated by the jet boats as they zoom around the harbour or people in the distance enjoying Oriental

Living and dining The generous living and dining rooms wrap around the front of the house to take full advantage of the stunning views to the city. A sliding door and small deck from the dining room provides views to take your breath away! Comfortable and warm, with a choice of gas heater or log fire to make the room cosy on those winter nights. This the perfect place to watch the fireworks or sailing in the harbour or just enjoy that family night at home.



Kitchen and bathrooms The kitchen, conveniently located next to the dining room, features white cabinets, wooden benches and floors, and oodles of storage space – including a full-length pantry, as well as a dishwasher and wall oven. Light and airy, overlooking the garden, the kitchen is a wonderful space to enjoy preparing food or entertaining guests. A large wooden island provides even more space to work or entertain. The first bathroom is conveniently located at the garden level and offers a vanity with storage and separate toilet. The second bathroom is on the top floor and offers a corner shower, full bath, new vanity and towel rail - all in pristine white and gently lit from the sun that pours in through the frosted window above the bath.

The three bedrooms The three bedrooms are conveniently located on the top level, well away from the noise of the household or guests. The main bedroom with large double built in robe boasts a floor to ceiling sliding door that leads to a private deck that stretches the width of the house. The deck offers expansive views of the city, the harbour, Cook Strait and the Oranga Orangas – the perfect place for that morning coffee, read of the Sunday paper - or maybe some quiet reflection. The second bedroom, currently used as a home office for two people, has a very large and deep wardrobe or storage area. A full bathroom with corner shower and bath, and a separate toilet, are located on this level, as well as hot water and other cupboards.


Garden To the rear of the house is a flat and private garden, which can be accessed from kitchen and bathroom/ washroom area. This is mainly presented in lush lawn and surrounded by a border of massed colour in spring and summer. Cinerarias, pungas, alstromeria, agapanthus and camellias combine to provide colour and texture. Sun pours in until the late afternoon. A tiled area just out from the kitchen provides that perfect, protected and private spot for a barbeque or lounger.

The suburb of Northland

The suburb of Kelburn

Northland is a relatively compact and sought after suburb nestled on the western hills just above the Botanical Gardens. Being just an easy twenty minute downhill walk, or five minute drive, to The Terrace and central city, well serviced by a kindergarten and schools, close to Victoria University and with a local shopping centre – it is very popular with professionals and families alike.

Kelburn sits in the dress circle, just above the city and next to the Botanical Gardens, an easy five minute drive from The Terrace and centre of Wellington. Built on the western hills the suburb offers panoramic views of the city and the ever changing harbour. There is a mixture of beautifully restored historic villas and newer housing integrated by lovely established gardens.

Many parts of Northland enjoy uninterrupted panoramic views of the city and harbour out to Eastbourne, the airport and Cook Strait. The suburb is surrounded by beautiful native bush and reserve land and can be truly appreciated from the Stellin Memorial Park lookout on Orangi Kaupapa Road. The views can also be appreciated from the Northern Walkway, one of the six major walkways in Wellington, which meanders through Northland onto Wadestown and eventually to Johnsonville. Central to Northland’s community is the Northland Memorial Community Centre in Woburn Road, which offers a wide range of activities including; badminton, youth drop in centre, rock and roll, scouts, Moving to the Beat (for preschoolers), Ezee Meals, mahjong, creche, pilates, lions, book club, basket ball, after school care and more. Northland is positioned just next to Kelburn with Karori to the west, and as such enjoys the benefits and services offered by both of these traditional and larger suburbs. Just between Northland and the city are the Botanical Gardens.

Kelburn is well serviced by a well appointed shopping centre, cafes, school, park and sports centre and is close to the Victoria University campus which is graciously spread over several hectares on the edge of the city. The well appointed shopping centre includes several cafes and restaurants, gift shop, dairy, fruit and video shop, beautician and fashion shop. Just a brief distance from the shopping centre is the historic Wellington Cable Car which runs every ten minutes to Lambton Quay. The Cable Car was built over a four year period from 1898 utilising prison labour from the Terrace Gaol. From 1902 it was used as a means of transport to the farmland in Kelburn. City workers often come up to Kelburn in the Cable Car from the city and wander to one of the cafes for a leisurely lunch. Just on the edge of Kelburn are the Botanical Gardens. Established in 1868 the gardens feature 25 hectares of unique landscape, protected native forest, conifers, specialised plant collections and stunning views over Wellington. There is a regular programme of summer events and concerts, and the cafe, located in the rose garden, is open most days.

Bus service All three suburbs are well serviced by the public bus service with buses running regularly to and from the city.

Schools Northland is zoned for Northland School, Karori for Karori Normal School and Kelburn for Kelburn Normal School. Samuel Marsden Collegiate School is a private girls school and the only high school in the area. Cable Car

Northland, Kelburn and Karori are all zoned for Wellington College.
