Police are investigating a double homicide in the Auckland suburb of Mt Albert.

Officers were called to a mansion in Stilwell Road in the wealthy suburb about 11am on Friday where they discovered a man's body in the driveway and another man's body inside the house.

Police say two weapons were found at the scene.

A third man who lives at the $2 million house is helping police with inquiries and police are not looking for anyone else in relation to the deaths.

The bodies have been removed from the property and a forensic examination will resume on Saturday.
