House for Sale
- About this property
It's Quiet, it's Elegant, it Has HistoryProperty ID DVP20002You'll get a feel for living here the moment you walk through the gate. Open the gate and enter a superb garden, with a jacaranda tree, roses and a striking fountain, whose gently trickling water emphasizes the place's tranquility. The house is a quality, character kauri villa built around 1900. There are circa 12-foot high kauri ceilings, wooden picture rails, a very long hall way, and all the light fittings are antiques, with an impressive, ceramic rise and fall chandelier in the dining room. Having said that, this place is thoroughly modern in all the most important ways. It's gas centrally heated, with marble heated floors in the ensuites. Yes, there's a superb family bathroom too. The lounge is so elegant and stately. But it's the kitchen and dining area, flowing out onto the verandah and deck where you may well spend most of your time. The bench tops are heart rimu and there's the most ingenious double sink you've ever seen. It really is an entertainer's delight. The kitchen window itself is designed to slide and stack right back, making an open serving space out onto the verandah and north facing deck. Your kitchen garden surrounds you, too. Raised vegetable beds are full of prickle-free blackberries, tomatoes, marjoram, radicchio, mint, rhubarb, fennel, celery, rocket and more. You'll make life-long friends of the neighbours here. You're three doors from the water and there are local gems everywhere to discover. Your kids could walk to school (or bike when they get older), you can stroll to the Stanley Point ferry in 5 minutes, and you can still stand in the middle of the street and have a conversation with a neighbour. Fond memories will come free with this house if you decide to move in. We'd love to show you round and find out if you'd like to do just that.
