First time on the market in 24 yrs, this 400m2 approx. architecturally designed home oozes charm and functionality. Tucked away down a secluded ROW, the park like grounds include an abundance of mature trees which add to the ambiance of the property and gives it a degree of privacy which is hard to find. Developments include a large ornate exposed aggregate parking area, heated salt water pool, separate man cave with a lean-to and a fenced vege garden. The gully aspect of this property provides yet another dimension and the vendors have done considerable work in this area including developing a path which provides a gateway to the magical world of native bush and bird life. Now a word about the dwelling. The vendors have maintained a fastidious approach to the care and upkeep of this substantial home. External cladding is Riblath and it has a Monier concrete tile roof. The exceptional presentation captures your attention on arrival. Inside, on the ground floor, there is one bedroom, a bathroom plus additional toilet and multiple living spaces, including a very functional area adjacent to the kitchen leading to a formal lounge/dining area with a Jet Master wood fire. Native timber, mainly rimu, features throughout the home, giving it a level of finish which could be cost prohibitive today. In addition, there is an office and a separate study and plenty of cupboard space. A covered outdoor patio is also worthy of mention as a very private and functional entertainment area. The original kitchen is very spacious and has slider windows allowing for interaction with the outdoor patio area. Zoned under floor heating is in place on the ground floor. Upstairs there are three bedrooms, a separate bathroom and a very nice ensuite in the main bedroom along with a huge w/I wardrobe. The main bedroom also has a vaulted ceiling and its own small balcony. DEVELOPMENT POTENTIAL or LAND BANK - A subdivision plan, along with a Subdivision Investigation Report, which includes a Development Cost Estimate is available.
