The Rebirth of William Gummer’s own home – Stoneways!

In 1926 William Gummer, of the renowned Architects Ford and Gummer, celebrated the completion of Stoneways, designed by him as his own home and a showpiece of his talent.  One of only 14 private homes that he designed during his career. Featured in most books on Auckland architecture it has remained ‘relevant’, as a classic, almost 100 years on.  To own this house is a privilege. To be a part of preparing it for the next 100 years of relevant living is an experience that the new owner will relish.  Over the last four years, the main internal upgrading has been in progress. The new kitchen, butler’s pantry and service areas have been completed. The result is ‘perfect’ for the spaces, the style and finishes, a ‘modern version’ of what you would expect.  The master bedroom suite is better than most well known London hotels. It cocoons you in style and quality, whilst being absolutely in keeping with Stoneways ‘updated’.

Now it is your opportunity to finish this ‘rebirth’ which in the main is redecoration. If you are a lover of art, fine furniture of any period, then this home, with its perfectly proportioned rooms and spaces will provide the perfect backdrop.  The Georgian style of Gummers architecture will never date.  In 2009 ‘Stoneways’ was voted #3 out of the 8 ‘best houses’ in Auckland worthy of preservation. It would probably be a similar result today. 

If you relate to our description above and would like to live in a ‘classic’ environment ‘updated’, then hurry. We know there is more than one of you.  An opportunity that is infrequently available.
