Come home to city-side sanctuary


Behind the gates and mature trees is your gentle sanctuary in The Wood, a wonderfully warm, characterful home, filled with happy memories and now ready to embrace the next family with its special charms.

So well located, minutes from town, this home has a special feel that century-old homes of this quality seem to possess.

From its high ceilings and large enclosed porch, to its surprise attic space and gardens front and rear, this 140m² home has so much to offer - and with the opportunity to add your mark to its already sympathetic updates.

The owners are sad to leave after 18 years, but now it's someone else's turn to enjoy this sunny home of four bedrooms (including a flexible upstairs space), two toilets and two living rooms, opening to a grape-covered pergola.

You have the benefit of a corner site, giving extra privacy and two-street access; one through the main gates and another, around the corner, to a rear garage, with options for redevelopment.

The house is delightfully hidden from the road by mature trees and a tall fence so that once you step inside, you feel so private and secure.

Dating from circa 1919, with the features you might hope for in this era; wooden floors (beneath carpet), original native timber mantlepiece, original paneled doors and timber architraves and deep sill windows.

Upgrades over the years have added more space to the rear and from the dining/living room and kitchen you can watch the children playing in the back yard on flat lawns.

The renovations have meant re-wiring and re-plumbing and additional insulation where walls have been opened. While lazy summer days are a delight with the house open to the garden, this is a warm home in winter with its compliant log fire, a heat pump, and wall panel heaters in all bedrooms.

As well as the rear access to a garage that's largely used now for storage - with workshop space - there's off-street parking at the front for two or more vehicles.
