Past Into Present, Beautifully


Offers Over $575,000

This iconic Motueka home was built in the 1930s and strikes a seemingly effortless balance between twenty-first century comfort and the original Californian bungalow vintage styling. Occupying a spacious corner plot, its first owner was Mr W Stilwell, a local cabinetmaker and joiner who used his talents to help create this beautiful family residence. From the minute you open the new picket fence gate and step inside the delightful garden,taking the winding path to the front entrance bathed in sunlight, you will be charmed by the character and ambience of this special and private house and garden setting.

The present owners have refurbished the house inside and out. A new exterior paint scheme and tasteful interior decor with warm soft furnishings all enhance the authentic timber panelling, ceiling beams and lead light windows. The upgrade has included re-wiring, a new bore pump, heat pump and heat transfer system to complement the wood burner. The home comprises a stunning and generous front entrance, leading to a large and well proportioned north/west facing lounge with French doors opening to a delightful sun porch. Flowing directly off the lounge, the striking new kitchen, large enough to dine in, offers traditional understated elegance. Continuing the flow the laundry, leading off the kitchen, has a separate third day toilet. The two light and airy double bedrooms both have ensuites, built in wardrobes and lovely views of the garden.

The refurbishment has been so extensive it has been extended to all the out buildings to include new roofing and guttering.There is a single garage, off street parking, a covered utility area, a workshop, a spacious studio/hobbies room plus a comfortable sleepout or office, any of which could be utilised for a home based business. For retirees, professional couples or purchasers who seek a unique property where all the hard work's done, this home is one that's worth discovering.
