Historical craftsmanship meets modern living
Tender guide from $1,195,000
On the edge of the city, you will find all the character and charm you would come to expect from an early 1900s home, combined with modern living creature comforts such as central heating.
Proudly sitting on this iconic, elevated Northland site, the sun pours through the large Northeast facing windows, leading you out over sweeping native gardens and expansive harbour views. Polished native timber floors are a testament to the quality craftsmanship of this bygone era.
The first level offers spacious living with a formal dining area leading into the family lounge, complete with a corner bay window. A well-considered kitchen with phenomenal storage and ample space for entertaining flows outside to a private sheltered courtyard. The master bedroom, luxurious in size, has built-in louvred wardrobes, brilliant storage space, and a dual access bathroom that has been recently fully renovated. Carrara high studded ceilings compliment the overall ambience.
Downstairs are two more generously sized bedrooms, each with built-in wardrobes and separate verandah access to sit and relax amongst the beautifully landscaped gardens. In keeping with the overall style of the home, the downstairs bathroom features wooden paneling with a period style porcelain vanity and a deep soak bathtub with a shower. A second living/study space can be found downstairs. Use in its current configuration, as one home, or split into an excellent home and income.
Enjoy all the great eateries and cafes in nearby Kelburn and Thorndon villages, while being so close to parks. Town is only a few minutes' drive, and the cable car is close to hand. Public transport is just around the corner, or join the commuters walking through the Botanic Garden and into the city.
Zoned for sought-after schools - Kelburn Normal School, Northland School, Wellington College, and Wellington Girls College.
