Historic Thorndon Villa – With A Twist!
Currently configured as a spacious three bedroom home with a two bedroom, self contained apartment below, this charming turn of last century villa has been fastidiously renovated and refurbished. Elegance and eco-friendly features combine in this historic 1905 villa in the heart of the heritage Thorndon precinct. The soaring stud, sash windows, native timber architraves and period details so typical of the era remain, but our forward-thinking owners have retro-fitted double glazing, full insulation (including exterior walls), solar power for heating and hot water, EV charging and LED lighting in their quest to have a net-zero emission home. Upstairs there are three double bedrooms (master with ensuite), all with clever wardrobe systems, and a separate bathroom with a charming hip bath. Downstairs there's a delightful formal living room with a beautiful bay window as well as a family room and dining area, with views over Thorndon and the prime minister's residence. There's also an additional wet bathroom, and a recently renovated kitchen and laundry leads out to a sun-drenched verandah, perfect for a cool drink on a summer evening. A self-contained modern two-bedroom apartment on the ground level, fully furnished and currently rented for $550 per week, is a fabulous, unexpected bonus. Off-street parking for up to four vehicles, storage sheds, a delightful and sunny courtyard garden, and fully fenced for pets and children ensure what you love is kept secure. This special, historic home is ready for its next century of happy living. Make it yours. Viewings by appointment.
