What a nice surprise!


Family living is a joy in this delightful four-bedroom bungalow with a small backyard swimming pool for summer dips, tranquil outlook over barbecue dinners to the Botanical Hill greenery and loads of character with Rimu timbers but modern updates. Few city fringe locations have the appeal of Nile Street with its majestic heritage trees, close access to schools and shopping and the nearness of the Maitai Valley and hillsides for walks and bike trails. This character bungalow is in the middle of this neighbourly area yet privately set behind its high front fence and with the magic of its garden at the back with lawns and fenced pool enclosure. It's excellent use of the 491sqm section. Step inside the 130sqm house, and you'll appreciate the airiness of the high stud, wide hallway and spacious bedrooms and the open plan living space opening to the garden. You can move straight in to this very well-presented home, with its fresh decor and modernised kitchen and two bathrooms, including a neat ensuite for the master. The house was re-wired in 2013, the carpet and paint is relatively new throughout and there's an HRV clean air-circulation system ducted to all rooms. Storage space is generous, including an attic with fold-down ladder, several cupboards and, outside, no less than three sheds. A gas fire in the lounge keeps winters cosy while, in summer, the house becomes one with the outdoors, opened to the garden and views of the Centre of New Zealand hillside for a country feel. The birdlife singing in the Botanics and in your own backyard reinforces the tranquillity. The cottage garden provides room for children's play on the flat lawn with planted borders of roses and other seasonal colour, a Kowhai, three fern palms for shade and space to grow your veges. You can entertain friends on the large patio on balmy evenings and weathered bridge timbers provide seating areas, one tucked in to a private corner. The section is fully fenced, with gates on either side and there's off-street parking close to the front door.
