- About this property
Timeless 1970's VintageProperty ID MET26433Like fine wine, the authentic design of architecturally inspired homes improves with age. Breaking with tradition they are homes offering features that embody originality and creative thinking. This 1970's classic occupies a rear section and offers a sanctuary like environment. A series of outdoor areas are defined by a decked courtyard, native plant niche, planter boxes, lush lawns, a brick patio area and formal hedging with topiary shrubs.
Zoned for Burnside and Papanui High schools, the home itself forms a strong presence with its concrete block and cedar construction. Bespoke timber panelling in the entrance foyer, vaulted ceilings and exposed beams anchor the character here with Rimu joinery bringing warmth to the design. Full height windows and doors draw the light inside this home, creating a dance of light and shade within the interior.
An updated kitchen with slim line stainless steel bench tops open plans with the dining room and flows outside to the central quadrant deck, where established natives provide a stunning backdrop. The separate lounge with garden views has a compliant wood burner and also opens up to the deck creating an easy social flow between living spaces. Barbecues and Al Fresco entertaining will be enjoyed with family and friends.
Three bedrooms with picturesque outdoor views and built in wardrobes cover off the accommodation. Underfloor heating to most of the house demonstrates forward thinking in 1970. Two updated bathrooms and a separate laundry cater for the utilities and an internal access garage featuring a timber ceiling and bespoke garage door finalises the footprint of this outstanding property.
This is an opportunity for the discerning buyer who appreciates the integrity of timeless design. Please note, this property is tenanted until 18th December 2017 for $500 per week. Please respect the privacy of our tenants.
