Description

Cityside chic, 1910 character


City chic and century-old character combine beautifully in this artfully modernised villa with self-contained sleepout, parkside location and walk-to-town convenience.

An enticing front veranda with extended, entertainer's deck, high ceilings, dark-stained rimu floors and a picture bay window lounge give that special ambience that only villas of this era can evoke.

In some ways, it's more like a city-side townhouse with its compact and easily cared for landscaped section that will leave you free for leisure, rather than tied to chores.

Yet there's so much more to this distinctive 110-year-old home, whose consented sleep-out combines to give a total of four bedrooms and two bathrooms.

The contemporary-styled sleepout adds an extra dimension to this very appealing home, directly opposite the Broads playing fields, giving you an unobstructed vista of trees and green space.

The sleepout/studio offers many choices. Use it for guests, a teenager's room or for B&B income. It's self-contained with bedroom/lounge and bathroom and kitchenette. With their own access, guests can come and go as they please.

The house feels fresh and contemporary with its lovely decor and light fittings (with chandelier highlights). And yet, there's that Edwardian feel with most of the original features intact; from the lounge mantlepiece to the deep skirting boards and decorative timber fretwork.

The restored high ceilings incorporate central roses, period style coving and picture rails.

The house has undergone other key updates over the years including some re-piling and new electrical wiring.

Winter warmth is provided by a compliant wood burner and a heat pump. Water heating is via gas califont.

The property has a half share of a cross-leased 734sqm section but has its own private driveway and parking for at least three vehicles, including a covered car port by the back door.
