Active in the early 20th century, Basil Hooper was one of Dunedins leading architects in the arts and crafts movement, and many of the citys stately homes were designed by him. Whitehall at 229 Bay View Road is fine example of Hoopers style.

Set over two levels and with an impressive floor area of 320 square metres, this 4-bedroom, 2-bathroom, 2-lounge, 2-sunroom, 4-w/c, home with study, sitting room, and formal dining as well as kitchen/dining and separate laundry (phew) has the room you seek in the location you have dreamed about!

Built with double and triple brick walls in 1914, period features abound, from ornate cornicing to leadlight windows, and wooden panelling and curved bannisters. The charm of the home is undeniably appealing.

The large primary bedroom, with glowing polished timber floors, comes with the modern convenience of a small ensuite and opens to a lovely sunroom, your private place to get away from the kids and relax.

Yes, ok, the kitchen is blue, but it is an excellent kitchen! The bench tops are granite, fridge/freezer is integrated, and the double dish drawers, rangehood, and gas cooktop make for a super functional facility.

Several heating options include underfloor heating (kitchen), an open fire in lounge 1 for amazing evening ambience, a woodburner in lounge 2, heat pumps in the hall and kitchen, and a night store heater upstairs.

The fully fenced yard is sunny and features a concrete entertainers courtyard out from the kitchen flowing to a lush and level lawn surrounded by mature brick-edged garden beds.

Unassumingly set back from the road, the position of the home offers peace & privacy, the asphalt driveway extending past the home to a double garage with auto door.

The vendors are downsizing, opening the opportunity for this special part of the built heritage of this city to go under new stewardship, yours!

Words and photos do not do this property justice, your inspection is highly recommended
