A $2 million Wellington hilltop mansion on an enviable site is for sale.

The Khandallah house is close to architect Ian Athfield’s hillside property, but is built in a much more traditional style than Athfield’s famous home.

Sitting next to the fruit of Athfield’s fertile imagination, it appears much older than ten years. It was built over three years from 2000.

Visible from the motorway, it could be one of the most exclusive houses outside of Oriental Bay, boasting a rateable value of $2.5 million.

The owners have lavished money on the interior, bringing in craftsmen and materials from Europe to complete the job.

Rooms include walnut flooring which was installed by hand over a year, while an Italian marble staircase was built over eight months.

The kitchen features an oven imported from France, limestone work surfaces and an oak-lined pantry.

The dining room is large enough to hold a grand piano and features limestone plaster imported from Italy.

A smaller lounge is on the lower level along with a wine cellar and laundry chutes from upper floors.

The house also has a deck, balconies and a large garden with sweeping views of the harbour.
