Sandringham is approximately 5 and a half kilometres from central Auckland. It is close to gentrified villages such as Kingsland and Mount Eden but has managed to maintain its individuality and kept the mainstream ale houses and takeaway joints at bay. Sandringham Road connects with Sandringham Village at the southern end, and Eden Park at the northern end.

Sandringham is walking distance to popular St Luke’s Mall with its supermarkets, gym and movie theatres as well as handy to Kingsland with its trendy bars and on-point restaurants.

Sandringham has attracted keen interest from young professionals and family home buyers enjoying the pretty villas and bungalows situated on large full sections. With prices lower than neighbouring Mount Eden, but affording similar proximity to the cities hotspots, Sandringham has recently become a real estate favourite.

Local schools for primary aged children include Edendale Primary School, Good Shepherd and Te Kura Kaupapa Maori o Nga Maungarongo, which teaches in Te Reo Maori. For secondary school, Mount Albert Grammar School, Marist College and St Peter’s College provide excellent options.

And Sandringham’s key drawcards for buyers? It’s central location, notably, the proximity to CBD with good transport links, proximity to St Lukes, motorways, Mount Eden and Newmarket. The suburb has a slightly gritty transitional vibe that appeals to its niche market.

Sandringham Village

Sandringham Village is located at the southern end of Sandringham Road just before it connects with Mount Albert Road.

The Village has a vibrant multi-cultural community and a strong South Asian influence in the restaurants and small supermarkets, Halal butchers and speciality stores.

The village architecture has an art deco influence that has mostly survived over the years.

Satya Spice and Chai Shop is a favourite.

Hidden down an alley lit by fairy lights, this popular spot will instantly transport you to somewhere far less suburban. Sitting cushioned beer crates under a hessian ceiling, you can order from an impressive collection of craft beers, alongside cocktails, hookah and, of course, their seriously impressive chai. Certainly a local ‘hidden gem’.

Gribblehirst Park

Gribblehirst Park is a 5.9-hectare suburban park in the heart of Sandringham.

Most of the paths through the park are flat and suitable for walking or jogging. An unpaved section will take you through the lava rock forest.

A large playground split over several levels has a range of play experiences for all ages. There is also a flying fox, basketball half-court, and a sports field.

Several grassed open spaces are perfect to find a spot for a picnic. A barbecue, picnic tables, drinking fountains, and accessible toilets are near the playground. This makes it a perfect spot to stay all day.

Access the car parks from Sandringham Road and Aroha Avenue and drive along Cabbage Tree Swamp Drive. There is plenty of parking available.

Watea Reserve and dog park

Tucked away from the street and ensconced in the trees is one of Sandrinhams hidden gems. It’s a favourite for locals and a popular dog off-leash park for those with fur babies.

This spacious reserve has much to offer, from large flat areas to kick a ball, picnic areas and seating to relax on, as well as boardwalks and paths to meander amongst the many and variously planted enclaves.

It is a popular dog off-leash park for those with fur babies

The park has a small wetland area at the base of the hill, some of which is planted (and some of which is just soggy grass in the winter months), so a towel for an off-leash dog or toddler is a good idea.

The upper slopes of the Reserve link directly through to the playground on Taumata Reserve, should your children feel like a play on an awesome playground.
