Ostend romance

There aren't many original homes on a sizeable section in a great location and this one has irresistible charm.

This original two bedroom 1930s cottage, on a relatively flat 1,790sqm parcel of land, sits in the most idyllic garden just a stone's throw from Putiki Bay. The romance of yesteryear engulfs you as you enter the property up a fairytale pathway through tall conifers that have grown to form an arch. A towering oak, a magnificent magnolia, hibiscus, palms, fruit bearing olive and citrus trees can be discovered while walking around the beautiful, expansive lawned areas.

The adorable cottage has a farmhouse feel, with kauri flooring, exposed beams, tongue and groove walls, and a traditional grand veranda entrance. Two bedrooms lead off from the lounge. The main bedroom has a built-in wardrobe and the second would also lend itself to being a cosy study. The galley-style kitchen is a decent size and the bathroom has a shower over the bath as well as a laundry facilities. An extension to the original cottage has created two single bedrooms and a TV/lounge area.

But, for those wanting to improve the home, concept drawings are available for a new extension wing. At the back of the garden there's a rickety old shed and even more grounds to discover while enjoying a peek of the boat masts in the bay. At the very front, a short concrete driveway and single garage complete the picture. With endless possibilities and a huge section size, this property could suit anyone from a young family or semi-retired couple to someone who just wants to land-bank this impressive site.

Meanwhile, the privacy and charm of the grounds promise endless summers of play and relaxation for whoever chooses to become the new owner.

There's a short window of opportunity to make this magical property yours, with a tender date of 28 February.
