Ponsonby and Surrounds

The homes in the Central Auckland region span fine examples of early New Zealand architecture such as the grand villas which grace Herne Bay and Ponsonby, right through to cutting edge contemporary homes designed by some of this country’s leading architects.

Herne Bay has some of the most expensive real estate in Auckland, and indeed, New Zealand. But the increasing gentrification of the areas bordering Auckland’s hero suburb has seen the rise and rise of central suburbs like Grey Lynn and Westmere, and the continuing popularity of Ponsonby and Parnell.

Ponsonby has cemented its place as a destination entertainment and retail precinct with its highly-rated and popular bars, cafes, and restaurants, and the boutique shopping opportunities with a focus on fashion, design and independent retailers.

Being on the city’s doorstep, the central suburbs will always be the coveted ones and Bayleys Ponsonby proudly flies the flag for Auckland’s trophy neighbourhoods.
