Villa charm, walk to everything


From first sight, here is a home to fall in love with, a century-old transitional villa in The Wood, beautifully presented and within walking distance of virtually everything; local shops, parks, and the city.

On the corner of Weka Street and Atawhai Drive, this lovely property is a delightful home, an original beauty, retaining its 1920s charms but with modern comforts and the bonus of a garden sleepout (non-compliant).

Simply move in an enjoy its Edwardian ambience, but with modern kitchen and bathroom and its sunny, private rear deck and garden with peaceful hillside views.

The master bedroom has French doors opening to the front veranda and two other bedrooms besides, accessed from a wide central hallway.

The well-presented, unconsented garden studio has a shower and toilet. It has been used for B&B and as a child's sleepout and could equally serve as a home business office or hobby space.

Lofty ceilings coloured and leadlight windows and original doors give that special feel that only homes of this era can provide, and a gable-top finial and veranda fretwork reinforces the Edwardian ambience. Even the original meat safe is retained.

The home is warmed by a living room fire which transfers heat to all three bedrooms.

Everything, though, is in modern, sparkling condition, including a recently repainted master bedroom and hall. The exterior weatherboards have been taken back to bare wood in previous years and repainted.

Casement windows are featured throughout, along with some leadlight and coloured glazing. The house is polystyrene insulated under most floors and entirely through the ceilings, with batts. The house has been rewired.

The fully fenced section is charming with its cottagey plantings, hedges and wrought iron gates. There's lawn, room for veges and a super large rear deck that is perfect for BBQ evenings with friends.

Walk to Milton Street pub and shops, local cafe, Trafalgar Park, Founders Park, city shops and hillside trails.
