Sir Edmund Hillary’s Home SOLD

Posted by Steve Koerber on March 1, 2009

One of New Zealand’s greatest heroes and the first man to conquer Mt Everest, Sir Edmund Hillary, passed away in January 2008.edmund-hillary_1_fullsize

The home he built with his own hands and the place he called home since the 1960s, was auctioned on site on Wednesday 18th March 2009.  Spirited bidding from a large crowd saw the home sell for $1,900,000 to a neighbour, ex New Zealand cricketer Terry Jarvis.

Sir Ed’s home is to be shifted from Remuera to Sir Edmund Hillary Collegiate in South Auckland in January 2010.
