Architectural Treasure at the Beach

Commissioned in the late 1980s by our vendors, this property has many special qualities that reflect a love of nature, art and architecture. Among them are timeless design, enduring quality, great sun and a prime waterfront location. Privately elevated along Eastbourne's traffic free promenade the harbour outlook is panoramic, from Petone to the north and the Kaikouras to the south. Ward Island is a captivating centrepiece. Entire walls are given to glass (double glazed throughout), maximising the connection to beach, sea and sky. Cleverly defined open plan spaces offer three welcoming living areas. A separate kitchen retains the view and is as cool today as when crafted from the native timber that adds textural intrigue throughout the house. Three well appointed bedrooms, two bathrooms plus a spacious garden ensuite studio/sleepout provide flexibility to suit so many stages of life. This is your opportunity to become the next guardian of this much treasured home. Don't leave it too late - call me today to view. Experience this property on video at youtu.be/pe_ZLTXEGcw

From the garage or garden gate, wend your way along a charming garden path flanked by a profusion of flowers that set the cared-for yet informal tone throughout the property. The entrance hall is an open plan 'reveal'. Varied ceiling heights, extensive use of native timber and glass - plus a captivating outlook all around - combine to say "Welcome Home!"

With three entirely glazed walls, pale grey floor tiles and rimu ceiling and trims, the living room to the front of the house captures all day sun through to mesmerising sunsets. Folding doors enable this space to be enclosed if desired. Ranch sliders provide access to the deck and coastal garden.

A more intimate, albeit open plan, space retains the view for those moments of contemplation.
