ONCE IN A LIFETIME OPPORTUNITY

Royal historic mansion on nearly two prime Hobsonville hectares ... an extremely rare opportunity for tender - offers invited.

Hobsonville's 120-year-old iconic Clark House, on behalf of the New Zealand Defence Force, is offered to the market for the first time in 72 years and presents discerning buyers the chance to acquire an outstanding technological and archaeological example of New Zealand history on approximately 1.935 hectares of prime land.

Completed in 1902 by wellknown English ceramics entrepreneur and pioneer R 0 Clark II as a technological showpiece for his company's transformational products, the 723 sq metre two-storeyed bay villa mansion is an outstanding example of ornate Italianate appearance with iron-lace verandahs, elaborate internal tiling, pressed metal ceilings, pa pier mache dado panels of Art Nouveau design and kauri features.

An Historic Places category 1 building and one·of a very few key survivors of important past industrial and military history, no expense was spared in constructing the mansion, which at one time enjoyed several tennis courts, ornamental gardens and a tunnel which linked it with Clark's manufacturing plant in Limeburners Bay.

The now-empty mansion includes at least ten very large living rooms and bedrooms, along with largely gutted kitchen and bathroom areas, an impressive central curved staircase, decorative feature tiles, stained glass windows, carved fire mantlepieces and a huge annex built in 1969 by the RNZAF.

It is very rare for a significant property of this kind to be offered to the market in New Zealand. Linked with the Amalgamated Brick and_Tile Company-which later developed into Ceramco, once one of New Zealand 's largest companies -this property much-loved by the Hobsonville community is waiting to be immersed by its new owners into the next chapter of its life story.
