Prepare for Perfection

Once in a while you walk into a home and your jaw drops and you are speechless. This is one of those rare homes where the recent renovation, attention to detail and design flair are truly exceptional.

One whole side of the house has been opened out and extended into one large multi-purpose living space with a stunning central kitchen with marble island and top end appliances. There is a wonderful feeling of space and light created by the high ceilings, several skylights and bi-fold doors that open out to the fully fenced and sunny back garden. With gas central heating, a new wood burner, great insulation and year round direct sun this gorgeous home is warm all year round.

The bedrooms are all spacious, with the master bedroom having a walk in wardrobe and a beautiful tiled ensuite bathroom. With 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms in the main house, there is a 4th double bedroom and 3rd bathroom in the sleepout that was built only 10 years ago - perfect for AirBnB, visitors or teenage kids.

Top it all off with a new roof, fully refinished floors, new wiring (with LED), new plumbing, recently painted inside and out and a single garage out front - you really couldn't ask for anything more. It is walking distance to the beach, St Francis and Island Bay Schools.
