Ponsonby is an inner-city suburb of Auckland City located 2 km west of the Auckland CBD. The suburb is oriented along a ridge running north-south, which is followed by the main street of the suburb, Ponsonby Road.
As one of Auckland’s oldest and most fashionable suburbs, Ponsonby exudes personality. Nestled on the edge of the city, it boasts superb cafes and restaurants, an enviable range of fashion and boutique stores, and many parks and reserves for locals to enjoy. Century old villas rub shoulders with some of Auckland's most sophisticated apartment complexes, providing a range of housing options at the upper end of the market.
Ponsonby borders St Mary's bay and Herne Bay to the north, Freemans Bay to the east and Grey Lynn to the south - Ponsonby is properly bounded by Jervois Road to the North and Richmond Road to the south but extends down Ponsonby road all the way to the Karangahape road corner. The CBD and waterfront are in close proximity and with the abundant lifestyle options on offer, the area is desirable and incredibly popular with a broad range of buyer profiles.
