Description

Built for family then, perfect for family now


Designed and built in 1914 by the renowned Whanganui architect Charles Reginald Ford, this gorgeous period classic has stood the test of time. Grand spaces and creature comforts combine to create a family friendly home with loads of character on one of Whanganui's most picturesque streets.

Step in through French doors directly into the dining room, warmed in winter by a woodburner in an ornate mantle. For more formal gatherings, invite your guests through the official front door into the wide wood-panelled hall, and through to the sunny formal living area, with the iconic bay window seat and beautifully tiled open fireplace.

The kitchen is reminiscent of bustling country homes, with a warmth and ambience not often found in modern houses yet equipped with modern appliances to make cooking and cleanup a breeze. Step through to the back porch, where you will find the separate laundry and a separate toilet for your convenience.

The hallway leads to the three generous bedrooms, all with built-in wardrobes. The master bedroom is particularly pretty with a brick fireplace and polished wooden floors. The family bathroom has a spa bath and vanity, and there is a separate toilet and separate shower room to relieve congestion in the mornings.

The large, flat and fully fenced section is a heritage excursion in itself, with bulbs and flowering shrubs that hark back to the early 1900s. A small brick shed by the laundry door is perfect for kindling, and a separate lined studio room cans been put to great use as an office, a workshop or sleepout. In addition, there is a large tandem garage with direct access to the back door.

Be a part of Whanganui's living history, and accompany this gracious centenarian into her 110s. Call Kim and Duncan today for your exclusive viewing opportunity.
