Plischke Modernist Masterpiece

Designed by Ernst Plischke and completed in 1956, the multi award winning Sutch-Smith house is internationally recognised as a modernist masterpiece, revered in Vienna as it is here in Wellington. With mesmerising views of the city and harbour, the house had a full restoration in 2002. This returned it both to its original specifications but also made it into a contemporary home, with 21st Century amenities and building materials. On the market for the first time in its 71 year history.

Highlights include:

• A fully glazed entrance way opens into a glazed hallway overlooking a courtyard - an impressive and welcoming entrance.
• A suspended open stair in polished timber leads to the main living areas upstairs. The open plan living and dining room enjoys sweeping views and access to the courtyard and garden outside. An open fireplace is a stunning focal point of the room and there is a study alcove complete with a built in desk and cabinetry.
• The kitchen is modern and practical with an abundance of storage options, a breakfast bar, gleaming stainless steel counter-tops, top quality appliances and a breakfast alcove with access to a small courtyard for morning coffees in the sunshine.
• The ground floor accommodates three bedrooms all of which are carpeted with built in joinery and have heating vents. On the lower floor the studio has a fold down double bed with a bathroom, built in cabinetry, lots of storage capacity and an external door to the courtyard.
• There are 3.5 bathrooms conveniently located throughout the house.
• A quite contemplative study with expansive built in cabinetry, plus an additional storage room for art and books.
• Outside there are 5 separate paved courtyards, two balcony's, a roof top deck over the garage and the gardens and pathways are beautifully landscaped with easy care planting and mature trees.
