13 Buckle Street

An icon of Wellington Central City, 13 Buckle Street is surely unparalleled in its sheer versatility, scale, and location. Providing light, space, flexibility, this stand-alone inner-city residence is perfect for those looking to live and work in the city.

Set against the lush greenery of Massey Hill, overlooking Wellington city and the beautiful grounds of Pukeahu War Memorial Park, this Georgian style, former police station, has grown with time into a large, light and private address.

13 Buckle Street offers so much more; two-metre high double-hung sash windows, four-metre high stud ceilings, one-hundred-and-twenty-seven years of history, and a singular, breath taking view down Tory Street, all the way to the ocean.
Built in 1893, the main station building gives you an exceptional 360m2 of classically-finished living space. Where else would you find a 710m2 plot of prime Central Wellington land so close to the city?
