7 of 19 intensive homes sell at Barfoot auctions

7 sold at Barfoot & Thompson’s city office auction sessions on Wednesday & Thursday out of 19 intensive living units listed below, which include apartments in both the cbd & suburbia, traditional brick & tile units, some terraces & townhouses and, from the Wednesday afternoon session, some cross-leased properties.

The properties listed below are all intensive in some form, so exclude standalone homes (unless they’re on a cross-lease).

A regular feature of the market is the appearance of properties at various stages of leaky building remediation, and 2 fit that description here.

Every agency handling apartments also has a supply of units in the brand-new Sugartree development’s second stage, Centro, to offer. Ray White City Apartments had 2 yesterday and Barfoots had one – all passed in.

The auction rooms have mostly been quiet, and the distinguishing feature has been the high proportion of the offering which attracted no bid – 6 of those listed here – despite, in some cases, bidders registering.

Penthouse & warehouse conversion sell

2 unusual apartments – one a penthouse atop a commercial building & reached by a glass exterior lift, the other a converted warehouse – were sold under the hammer at Bayleys’ city auction yesterday.

Image above: Looking north from the penthouse at 2 Emily Place, on the eastern fringe of the cbd.

It was a slow journey for both, with vendor bids from the auctioneer at an early stage and plenty of negotiating outside the auctionroom before sales were concluded.

The 1980s cbd penthouse is one of 2 apartments sitting above 7 commercial floors across the intersection from Britomart and was built around the time developers were switching their focus to building much smaller units for a new kind of demand.

The Grey Lynn conversion, on the ground floor with 2 flats above it and amid a commercial & residential mix on the motorway side of Great North Rd, with a primary school across the street, is even more spacious and still strongly bears its industrial roots.
