Back to the future!


This gorgeous grand old lady is a Period Villa in need of 'primping'. A relocated character home situated in the most quaint and idyllic country setting, with stunning views. Retaining most of its original features without being butchered, it has 'beautiful bones', and would relish a complete 'Ponsonby style' makeover. Old combined with a completely new contemporary extension or addition would transform it from the 19th to the 21st century.

Rarely do such opportunities come up. Either give her a sympathetic cosmetic freshen up, or completely gut and graciously restore or remodel this architectural masterpiece.

Your new home offers four bedrooms, high stud ceilings, warm timber flooring throughout, one bathroom and an inviting open plan kitchen, dining, living area, even the old tiled stove surround is intact. Everything is in reasonable working order, but some of the original features need some TLC.

Outside there are a selection of additional sheds for various accommodation, activities and storage. A small deck has a campfire pit next to it beside the garden shed, providing fabulous country marshmallow toasting in true Anabel Langbein style!

A garden swing, small levelled off pony arena, holding pen and tack shed for the budding equestrians, and the small paddock in addition to a small orchard paddock provides grazing for any beasties you choose to raise.

An elevated position with views over the land to the sea, and so convenient that your 40 minutes off peak commute will be a breeze. Wainui Golf Club, the school bus and the motorway onramp are only a few kilometres down the road. Silverdale's business, transport and entertainment hub is only five minutes away, and Orewa and the Whangaparaoa Peninsula is only 5 more minutes from there. A choice of private and public schools, amenities and entertainment facilities are all within 15 minutes of leaving the gate.

Bring your 'time machine' tools and cast your magic wand over this character filled old girl and transport her 'Back to the Future'.
