A Brilliant Family Home

There is much more to this modernised 1940s house than a handsome street presence. An enviably large front lawn, lovely box hedging, wisteria, flowering trees, a generous interior and heaps of sun make it a brilliant family home. Close to the village, beach, schools and all that Eastbourne offers, there are 3 generous living spaces downstairs and 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms upstairs. The open plan kitchen/dining room is hard to beat for space, practicality and style. Bi-folding doors open it to a generous deck and the gardens where you can watch your children and pets play. A single garage and carport provide off street parking and there is plenty of space on the street for when friends and family come to visit. The owners' children have grown and flown and they have their eye on a new adventure. View soon - this won't be on the market for long.

A box hedged path guides you to the few steps, past the wisteria to the lead light glazed, sheltered front door. There is also access from the kitchen deck and the rear patio (leading directly to the upper floor).

Rimu French doors lead from the casual living to the lounge where north and west facing windows look out to the gardens and lawn. Generous glimpses of the sea are a bonus. In addition to gas central heating, this room offers the ambience of an open fire. A peaceful retreat for contemplation or gathering around the television. Polished timber floor.

A charming entrance to the house, this wonderfully open space is perfect for enjoying the sun, right until it gloriously sets over Wellington's hills. This will soon become a favourite spot from which to admire the rhododendron tree and garden beyond. Polished floorboards compliment the rimu staircase and wall, creating a warm, casual atmosphere. A large under-stair cupboard keeps the family's coats and shoes handy yet concealed. Polished timber floor.

1. Created as part of a 2008 renovation, the master bedroom is spacious, with bi-fold door access to its own deck, walk-in-wardrobe and shower room across the hallway. While close enough to remain connected to young children, this room enjoys an aspect of privacy and a lovely view across to Ward Island and the harbour. Double glazed.

2. As the original master, this west and north facing double room is big enough to combine as a study, living area or both making it perfect for teenagers and guests. Sea view.

3. A good double with fitted wardrobe, this room is to the rear of the house, with north and west facing windows. A lovely, private room with a view of the sea.

4. A charming single, with sea view.

1. Opposite the master bedroom. Contemporary design with tiled, wet-room style shower and separate vanity unit. Skylight.

2. A large room with bath, separate shower.

A third toilet, plus hand basin is located downstairs, through the laundry.

Separate, located off the kitchen. Very handy. The 3rd toilet is located at the end of the laundry.

Practical and gorgeous, a red and white cork tiled floor sets the bright, cheerful tone for the nucleus of this home. Large, with generous facilities for cooking up a storm and sharing it with family and friends. A walk-in pantry, a brilliant central island and brand new oven and extractor are a few of the features that you will love. Bi-folding doors open the room to the deck and barbeque area. The garden is in full view so you can relax while the children play.

Part of what makes this home fabulous for families is the outdoors. A natural back drop provides plenty of room for your children to safely run and climb their own hill. To the front is a very generous lawn, lined with trees and floral borders. Grow your own vegetables or keep it simple with lawn and borders.

Single garage, single carport.

Primary schools in Eastbourne and Bays are Muritai, San Antonio and Wellesley (private college for boys). Hutt Valley High School offers in-zone college education. There are also several private and integrated colleges in the Hutt/Wellington area that are attended by Eastbourne residents.

Gas central heating, open fire.

Roof cavity, master bedroom and kitchen.
