Arguably New Zealand's most impressive restoration ever, the acclaimed Remuera family mansion known as Barochan is to be sold by auction.

Constructed in 1916, masterfully extended in 1930, and remastered to the highest quality standards of today from 2017 to 2022, Barochan sits graciously anchored at the base of Ohinerau Mount Hobson, at the highest point of Remuera's Golden Mile.

With a gloriously wide street presence, the circa 1000sqm home occupies three sun-drenched north-facing sites and commands panoramic sea, gulf, harbour, and city views.

The recent restoration focused on enhancing the home's vast layout, spectacular views, and plentiful amenities, whilst maintaining the timeless character and original natural materials.

Devoid of white, no surface of this classic, architecturally designed home has escaped numerous craftsmens' touch - the attention to detail is so outstanding that even perfectionists will be impressed.

Original native and imported timbers have been carefully repurposed to create the most beautiful bespoke herringbone floors and richly textured oak paneling.

Private from neighbours and acoustically engineered for silent living, features such as a German filtered air and humidity control system, all-wall insulation, and fully ducted air conditioning, differentiate this residence from normal high-end homes. Old and new steel and stone foundations underpin an almighty structure. Mostly unseen, their presence is surely felt.

Most who aspire to own a brand-new luxury home in such a premium Auckland location wouldn't relish the many years of work required to create an environment like this. At Barochan, all the passionate work, and more, has been done.

The owners want to spend more time with family overseas. Reluctantly, and luckily, they invite you to stake your claim for one of New Zealand's finest homes.
