Herne Bay Elegant Villa


Herne Bay, Auckland


Private owner



This inner-city Auckland villa was refurbished from top-to-toe and side-to-side to meet the needs of a new custodian.

New Design

Its short-comings of limited accommodation, poor indoor-outdoor flow and generally poorly executed past alterations were successfully addressed in the re-design carried out by Salmond Reed Architects.

Exterior improvements included reinstatement of the front verandah, new entrance gable and steps, additions to rear, dining pavilion, double garaging, fences and entry lych gate.

Interior improvements included interior re-planning, retention of existing pressed metal ceilings and period fireplaces, new central stair and kitchen and bathroom updates.
