Description

Special street, magic vista


With a superb contemporary renovation, this home tucked away so privately yet minutes from the city is light, warm and sunny - with striking views to add to its charms.

The builder/owner has rebuilt this 1949 home to high standards and the presentation is immaculate from its new kitchen and bathrooms to details such as recessed new lighting and fitted wardrobes.

While this home retains its characterful origins, including rimu floors, it feels like a new house. Virtually everything has been renewed, including internal wall linings, electrical wiring, and plumbing. The house exterior has been repainted in the last year.

The street feels like a country lane, bordered by trees bursting with seasonal colours. Walk to town. Fairfield Park is handy, and you have ready access to Brook or Maitai walks and bike rides.

Inside are three bedrooms plus office, or four bedrooms, and two bathrooms on two levels.

The house is bathed in light through generous glazing, and very warm, although there's a gas fire and heat pumps upstairs and down - each only a few years old.

The 1,300sqm section is designed for no-fuss maintenance and no lawn mowing. A recently built, ply-clad shed with its own deck is included.

A huge main deck, partly covered for all-weather enjoyment, has glass balustrading for unobstructed views across the city to the Haven, Port and Bay and north-east towards the greenery of the Maitai.

The house is a roomy 180sqm with near-new paint and lush carpet in bedrooms and lounge and rimu boards elsewhere. The weatherboards, new on the eastern addition, are recently painted. The roof is mostly concrete tiles, the water electrically heated and there's single glazing.

The master bedroom, too, enjoys lovely pillow views and comes complete with huge wardrobe space and an en-suite bathroom, fully tiled and with heated floors (as with the second bathroom). The tiling is to full shower height and of excellent quality which is a byword of this home which needs nothing but your own touch of decor.
