Elegant Family Home in Herne Bay


This is a rare opportunity to acquire a classic 1900's family home with pool on the desirable northern slopes of Herne Bay. The location, together with the warmth and charm of this quintessential villa, is immediately appreciated as you approach the front garden, crowned with its beautiful cherry blossom tree. When you enter the home the central hallway sets the tone with its original character detailing, high stud and generous proportions. Walk through to the brand new designer kitchen and dining area which is slightly raised from the adjoining living room.

Light streams into the family-sized living room and French-doors fold back to create a seamless connection to the private northeast-facing garden and swimming pool area. It features a large pool house with amenities to provide a multitude of uses, a room for guests, kids' playroom, media or games room. Sit under the pool-side pergola draped in Japanese wisteria, and enjoy the scent of lavender and jasmine in the established landscaped garden.

There's no shortage of living space in this home, with a second more formal sitting room on the ground floor complete with an ornate fireplace, large bay window and detailed ceilings. The master bedroom is situated on the upper floor with its own balcony - a tranquil, private and relaxing space with magnificent views of the sea. A further three bedrooms are located downstairs. Two spacious bedrooms with built-in storage lead off the central hallway, and the third from the dining area.

Ideal for families, Bayfield Primary School is just across the road, with Bayfield Park, Cox's Bay and all the picturesque beaches just a short walk away. An eclectic mix of boutique shops, cafes, and restaurants are close by on Jervois Road. It's not surprising that this property has featured twice in NZ House & Garden magazine. The current owner, an artist and stylist, has created a wonderful, warm, and welcoming family home.
