Charming character home on city doorstep


Desirable, leafy Shelbourne Street, perched above the city, beckons with this delightful 1920s home, full of character and now modernised for contemporary living.

The location is superb, just a stroll to cafes, the School of Music, Fairfield Park for summer movie picnics, Friday night drinks in town and all the other attractions of the city.

You can see both girls' and boys' colleges from the master bedroom, making this a wonderful position for young families for schooling or older couples who want space for extended family.

The spacious (194sqm plus double garage) two-storey circa 1921 home offers four bedrooms and two delightful living rooms for spacious, relaxed living.

Sited on an easily managed 582sqm section, sheltered by mature trees, the house is beautifully presented after a tasteful refurbishment, respecting the original character.

Exposed ceiling beams and high ceilings are all part of the attraction in this home.

But contemporary comforts include three heat pumps, gas fire, refurbished bathrooms (one with heated floors) and a wonderful, new chef's kitchen. All of the lighting has been replaced with modern fittings and switches.

Light pours in through generous windows throughout, with skylights upstairs to make the whole house light and bright. The whole house has been redecorated with fresh paint, new carpet and window treatments.

Having two separate living rooms adds to flexible living appeal and the master bedroom is a sunny delight with views and a renewed ensuite bathroom with heated floors.

Being in the most elevated part of Shelbourne gives you a vista of greenery to the Cathedral and over the city. Upstairs, Tasman Bay comes into view.

There's a delightful, private deck at the rear overlooking the garden with its grape vines and pohutukawa and where there's space for growing vegetables.

The walk-around section is fully fenced and there's plentiful off-street parking as well as a double garage with workshop area and loads of storage space.
