Sunsets and Surf in Lyall Bay

Quite possibly the last home on Lyall Bay to lose the Sun, you will never bore of the amazing sea views and sunsets as you sit directly across the road from the only surf beach in Wellington.

Solidly built in the 1950's and with a bach like feel, the house has been extensively renovated and extended over the years but still offers plenty of opportunity to put on your own touches and continue to add value.

The main weatherboard house comprises a huge open plan kitchen / living / dining room taking advantage of the views and natural light. The kitchen is new and incorporates an abundance of bench space as well as a large breakfast bar. The rest of the house has 3 double bedrooms (all with wardrobes), a tidy bathroom and plenty of storage. The living room opens out through bi fold doors to a large deck that gets fantastic sun and is sheltered from the Southerly while the front of the home has a courtyard garden which is sheltered from the Northerly.

The twist is the large garage and studio with a full bathroom at the back of the property. Accessed from the side of the house, this is an invaluable space that could be used as a workshop, home office, additional accommodation or perhaps even converted into a self-contained flat. The options are endless.

This property is being sold By Negotiation. Buyer Enquiry is welcome from $1,045,000.

Park the car in the single garage, and wander across the courtyard and down the side of this home to the front door. Step through into the spacious, open plan living areas.

The open plan living area is spacious and has fantastic natural light. The large window at the front of the room looks out to the beach and sea.

1. The master bedroom is located at the front of the home and accessed off the living room. It features a double wardrobe and gorgeous views out to the beach. With a view like his to wake up to, you could be forgiven for never wanting to leave!

2. Double bedroom, with double wardrobe with built in shelving.

3. Double bedroom, with double wardrobe with built in shelving.

Separate from the main house, the studio is located beside the double garage and has it's own ensuite. This versatile space could be used for a home office, teenage hideaway or an extra bedroom for when guests come to stay.

1. The family bathroom features a shower over bath, toilet, vanity, heated towel rail and extractor fan.

2. The ensuite off the studio features a toilet, shower and sink.

The kitchen/dining is open plan with the living area. This is the central hub of the home, with bi-fold doors leading out to the sheltered deck at the rear. The family will congregate around this area, with the breakfast bar offering somewhere to have a snack or catch up on the days events with the family cook.

The kitchen itself is newly renovated, and features a Bellini range hood, gorgeous tiled splash back, electric cooktop, double Fisher and Paykel oven and a Fisher and Paykel dishwasher.

From the moment you walk into the front courtyard of this home, you will feel like you are constantly on holiday. Sit and enjoy the ocean views from the front courtyard, or relax on the private and sheltered deck at the rear of the home (accessed via both the dining area and the hallway). The section is fully fenced, perfect for children and pets. The beach, local craft beer breweries and lovely cafes are all a stone's throw away!

There is a single garage at the front of the home, and a separate oversized single garage at the rear.

This home offers ample storage, with double wardrobes in each of the bedrooms, a linen cupboard in the hallway and access to the ceiling through the family bathroom.
