Nestled at the end of Keretene Place, Barr House stands as a timeless masterpiece. Designed by the renowned New Zealand architect Claude Megson and built in 1972, this architectural gem is a true testament to art meeting functionality.

As you enter, you're enveloped in a seamless blend of design elements inspired by luminaries like Frank Lloyd Wright. Each corner of Barr House unveils a new dimension of its brilliance, from the whimsical ceiling heights to the seamless integration of indoor and outdoor spaces.

This incredible family home boasts an array of living areas strategically bathed in natural light and offering a variety of serene views of St John's Bush. The heart of the home lies in its innovative kitchen and dining spaces, complete with a central island—a visionary design ahead of its time.

With four bedrooms, each with its own balcony providing a unique private vista, every family member finds their personal sanctuary. Even the study, wine cellar, and rumpus room exude a sense of charm and whimsy.

Step outside, and you're greeted by lush native bush and mature landscaping across an elevated 961 square metre site. Picture yourself unwinding in the pool or soaking in the spa amidst the tranquil sounds of birdlife. The convenience of ample parking spaces in the front courtyard and double carport adds to the allure and speaks to the practical nature of the design.

Meadowbank's appeal extends beyond its boundaries, with easy access to the CBD, Newmarket, and Parnell to the west, and pristine beaches just a stone's throw away to the east. Cafes, parks, public transport, and schools enrich the community's vibrant lifestyle.


An icon, carefully preserved by only two custodians throughout its history. Now, the opportunity beckons to experience the extraordinary and immerse yourself in Megson's original vision.
