6 Leek St 22 small-min.jpgJLL insists, it is not every day a property like this one comes along. 

JLL agent Ian Hall is marketing 6 Leek Street, a 780sqm freehold property with two levels of office of 288sqm each, 16 car parks and a stunning 202sqm, two-bedroom penthouse residence. 

Hall says, “This is a stunning property. City pads like this one are just not built anymore. The apartment has plenty of space and isn’t crammed with bedrooms. It is ideal for an investor who wants to use it themselves, or rent it out. The opportunity is there to run a business on the two floors underneath, or rent those out too. To top it off, there is no body corporate as this property is standalone.”

The property is unlike other live/work spaces, with 6 Leek Street being architecturally designed by Simon Twose, who, thanks to this property, won the New Zealand Institute of Architects National Premier Award for home and office. 

The property has been the home of a successful strategy and design consultancy business, who has serviced international and locally based clients since 2000. The apartment was created to allow them to have an inner city home with their business continuing to occupy the two floors below.

Located on Leek Street, just along from the busy Newmarket shopping area and within a short walk to the Broadway’s Olympic Pools and Auckland’s Domain, the property is also close to transport links such as bus routes, the Newmarket train station and motorways north and south. 

The property is fully air-conditioned with an elevator direct from the garage to all floors. It has been well maintained and has a 100% + seismic rating, with the apartment having double rated acoustics in order for the property to be a peaceful retreat at the end of the day. 

The apartment has a large living space, two double bedrooms both with ensuites, generous facilities room plus wine room, guest bathroom, open plan living, fireplace and generous storage. “There are also two substantial balconies with a total balcony area of 52sqm, which capture all day sun, including views to the harbour and southeast,” says Hall.

With the rise of co-working and flexible work mentality, the idea of working from home has become more the norm. For those who own a business which requires them to be on hand 24/7, a live/work premise provides the opportunity to make smarter use of time.

Says Hall, “Live/work properties have always been hard to find. However, it has become more popular as people seek work/life balance. This, combined with locating a live/work property in a top location means that the property we are marketing at 6 Leek Street in Newmarket is going to have great appeal to both owner occupiers and investors.

“It is the perfect inner city private pad and offers a fantastic location to unwind while being so central.”

The property will be sold through an Expressions of Interest campaign closing 12 October 2017 (if not sold prior).​​​​​
