Description

Contemporary comfort, yesteryear elegance


Designed by the great Whanganui architect, Robert Talboys during his heyday in the arts and crafts movement of the 1920s, this home is a perfect example of the care in construction and aesthetics that characterise his work.

From the slate tiled front porch to the original leadlight windows, from the impressive bespoke cabinetry to the gorgeous board and batten ceilings, this is a home to treasure and be proud of. Sympathetically renovated to a very high standard, every modern convenience has been catered for without sacrificing the character so beloved of a Talboys home.

There are four generous bedrooms, master with en suite and walk-through closet and two additional wardrobe spaces. The guest bedroom has a bay window with a view over the beautifully manicured garden, and a gas fire to see to your visitors' every comfort. The formal sitting room beckons, for those quiet times of good conversation and good literature.

Summer is set for entertaining in the light and airy open-plan family lounge and dining room, with comfortable flow out to the covered deck. A path leads between the house and the garage to a private and sheltered spot, perfect for intimate family barbecues or a peaceful drink with friends.

A double garage with high stud, three phase power, workshop and remote doors completes the package, with enough room at the side to park a boat or trailer. The water softener for the house is an added bonus.

They just don't build them like this anymore. Don't miss out on your chance to view.
