Known for its grand avenues and gracious character homes, Remuera is an affluent heritage suburb with a rich history. The area is especially popular with families who are attracted to the elite private schools, safe streets, large properties and convenient city-fringe location. Remuera is in an ideal position just a few minutes’ drive from the CBD but with easy access to the harbour and Eastern Bay beaches.
Many of these owners will never leave the area, even when their children leave home, such is their love of the charming village and local community. And with recent additions to the wider neighbourhood such as Westfield Newmarket and Orakei Bay Village, living in Remuera just keeps getting better.
With a reliable collection of staple retail and services, Remuera locals have always relied on the Village for their everyday needs. In many ways, it is the heart of the suburb. Over the past few years, however, Remuera Village has enjoyed a wave of quality new boutique retail to join local icons like Banque and Jack Lums. This quaint strip of shops has always had a strong local patronage, but it has recently become a destination for foodies and fashionistas. With its contemporary mix of designer fashion, art and homeware, Maman exemplifies these new boutiques. In a similar vein, 4&20, Browns Eatery and Remuera Local have reinvigorated the local coffee culture and provided a much-needed lift to this dependable hub.
