A heartfelt home in the heart of the Avenues


The rarity in Tauranga of homes with history enhances the appeal of this 256 m² central Avenues property. The pre-war dwelling and private grounds that surround it have evolved beautifully over eight decades and been maintained and improved lovingly over nearly 25 years by these, the fourth, owners.

Be transported to gentler times by the weatherboard home with its verandas and casement windows, by the trees, including a massive pohutukawa, that throw dappled shade over brick courtyards and the big back lawn.

While becoming captivated by the atmosphere you will also appreciate sympathetic contemporary touches like open plan living with an excellent relationship with the outdoors, the streamlined kitchen, updated bathrooms, warmth and sunshine. Perched on the highest point in the Avenues the elevation of this site affords water peeps from ground floor living, wide estuary views and Mount Maunganui views from the second floor, then a coastal and urban panorama from the bright light airy attic which spans the entire top storey.

This spacious and versatile family home has an office/ fifth bedroom on the ground floor, an entire middle floor of bedrooms, plus endless options in the spacious attic. The original tandem garage provides ample storage, an office/studio to work from or convert to a pool house with ample space to put in a pool if you desired.

Briarley Street is considered one of Tauranga's most prestigious Avenues locations - for the cul de sac privacy combined with proximity to the CBD, the waterfront, and easy access to all levels of education. If you've always wanted a central Avenues character home in a secluded family friendly setting, prepare to be charmed by 16 Briarley Street.
