Fantastic Family Home

This stunning 1920s family home was extended and fully renovated in 2008. Beautiful inside and out, from top to toe, it has the luxury of sea and bush views, excellent sun and a blend of original charm/modern convenience. As a package this home is difficult to fault with wonderful flow through casual and formal living spaces, 4 beds and 2.5 baths. A wraparound verandah is the perfect place to dine, relax or sit and watch the children play. A substantial lawn is framed by hedges, trees and flowerbeds. All this, and native bush as the backdrop. With approx. 928sqm of flat land, plus dual access from Kereru Road. Walk to the beach in moments and the commuter ferry in 5 minutes. Entry to the bush tracks is opposite the back gate. From Moana Road you have a 2/3 car i/a garage and a forecourt for 4+ cars. And from Kereru Road, 2 further spaces lift convenience to another level. In this location, this condition and with these views, I recommend you call me now to view.

There are several convenient points of entry to this home. The internal access garage off Moana Road brings you to the entrance hall as do the steps onto the sheltered verandah and front door. From Kereru Road, entry is via the back door or directly into the open plan kitchen/dining/family room.

This spacious room has extensive glazing to the north and west, with lead light windows that create a lovely ambience and provide a beautiful frame for the sea and garden views. An open fire provides winter cosiness and French doors provide seamless connection to your beautiful lawn and gardens.

Open plan to the kitchen, this is a versatile space for casual living, dining or both. A gas fire gives instant heat when you need it, and glazed French doors open the room to the verandah and gardens - where your children are, no doubt, to be found.

Smart, white and with bi-folding windows that open it to the verandah. Whatever the occasion, be it casual or formal, you will enjoy working in this gorgeous space.

1. The master bedroom is just a few steps up from the ground floor and is an oasis of calm. Bi-folding windows open towards the sea view, while a neutral decor, plush carpet and gorgeous drapes ensure you will want to linger here at the weekends. Two double wardrobes.

2. Together with the master suite, this lovely double room was added as part of the major renovation project undertaken by the present owners, yet its character has been developed to blend perfectly with the original home. Carpeted, with fitted wardrobes.

3. A large double, with fitted wardrobes and extensive 'eaves' storage space. As with most of the rooms in this home, the sea view is stunning.

4. A large double with fitted wardrobes and fabulous sea view.

1. Ensuite, with a double size wet-room style shower and underfloor heating.

2. The family bathroom. Upstairs, with bath and separate shower.

3. Downstairs cloakroom.

Separate and conveniently located with direct access to the gated (as a pet run) rear of the house and washing line.

The sun room is the perfect study, with painted floorboards and bi-folding windows opening to the north and west. Sea and bush views are the antidote to overwork!

A wonderful playground for your children, a fabulous environment in which to exercise green fingers and brilliant parking for your vehicles, your guests' vehicles and all the toys - big and small - you wish to keep for life at the beach. The rear garden area is fully fenced for pets and children and there is a gated concrete area to the rear which is the perfect place for pets while you are out of the house. A lovely old garden shed remains in great working condition to the rear of the property.

The internal garage accommodates 3 cars (2 tandem) and there is plenty of space for workshop activities too. The large concrete driveway provides comfortable parking for 4+ cars and to the rear of the property, from Kerereu Road, there is a car pad and further space on the property.

There is excellent locked storage space beneath the house, accessed from beside the garage. An excellent space for storing your firewood and much more.

Wellesley College, a private school for boys (to Year 8) is a 5 minute walk through Williams Park. In Eastbourne, there are 2 public co-ed schools - Muritai and San Antonio. For the senior school years, Hutt Valley High School is in zone. Many students from the area also attend a range of private and integrated schools across Wellington and Hutt Valley.

An open fire in the lounge and gas fire in the family room provide ample winter warmth through winter. Two gas bayonet heaters plus an electric wall radiator (in study) ensure that the entire house remains delightfully cosy.

There is excellent locked storage space beneath the house.
