Gorgeous Family Home By The Beach

This much admired 1920s William Gray Young home was designed to be beautiful and to stand the test of time. Its original charm has been preserved through sensitive renovation projects that accommodate how we live today. Timber and brick inside and out offer a romantic, textural ambience and a reassuring shelter. With only grassy sand dunes between you and the beach, it is perfectly located with gorgeous sea views and a recreation park just steps away. The flow to outdoor living is brilliant. There are patios and decks and a charming rear garden with fruit trees and a lawn with plenty of space for the trampoline. A sleep out/studio with shower is sure to be claimed by all for sleepovers, the home office or a teenage hangout. Everything that this superb seaside suburb has to offer is just a walk away, including schools, village shops and bush walks.

The front door is a couple of steps from the double garage and leads to a traditional hallway, with a cloaks cupboard and a warm welcome!

Painted brick walls, timber floor and joinery, exposed ceiling beams - this textured room is cosy, comfy and very inviting. With flow from the entrance hall and family room it is wonderful for entertaining or just chilling with the family. The fireplace is currently decorative only.

A lovely space which can be open to the kitchen or closed via cavity sliding doors. This room also flows to the front casual living room and the hallway. North and west facing this room offers all day sun and a lovely view of the beach and harbour.

A series of spaces provide casual/family living to suit everyone's needs. French doors open to the front patio from an intimate west and north facing space where the owners love to relax all year round. It is also connected to the lounge, through a glass door surrounded by timber bookshelves. A brilliant spot for curling up with a riveting read and for viewing sunsets!

Convenient to the dining room and the family/breakfast room the kitchen has a tiled floor and is well resourced to feed family and friends. French doors lead to the fully fenced rear garden so you can keep an eye on your children and pets as they play.

1. A good double with an adjoining room which is perfect as a nursery, home office or can be fitted as an excellent dressing room. Wake up to gorgeous morning sun.

2. Generous double room with east facing windows over looking the back garden and views of the bush covered hills. Comfortably houses queen bed, desk and wardrobe with plenty of room to spare.

Separate, with the 3rd toilet leading from it, the laundry is located to the rear of the property with easy access to the back garden.

The outdoor spaces complement the gracious yet informal feel of this beautiful beachside home. To the front is a paved patio which the owners say is a year round favourite, any time of day or night. Perfect for alfresco dining and enjoying the view of people enjoying water sports and glorious sunsets. The small deck to the front of the house and upstairs is your private, panoramic viewing platform. This deck has been recently relined with Butynol. The back garden, with its spa, studio, lawn and fruit trees is a veritable beachside paradise. The site of much fun and laughter over the past 100 years!

The double garage has two separate doors. There is also space for off-street parking in front of the garage and also on the street.

The wonderful features of this property include an excellent garden sleep-out/studio. With French doors and lovely light this room is highly versatile. Currently used as an office/guest room it also works brilliantly as a teenage hangout. The room has its own shower (which is great after a trip to the beach or before a soak in the spa) and the toilet (off the laundry) is super handy too.

There are three hall cupboards upstairs to accommodate linen and wardrobe overflow. A handy cupboard in the rear garden conceals the wheely/garbage bin.

Muritai School is a mixed primary/intermediate school a short walk away. San Anotonio is a small, primary Catholic school, also nearby. Wellesley College is a private, primary/intermediate school for boys in Days Bay. Zoned for Hutt Valley High School. Eastbourne students also attend the variety of private and integrated schools in the Hutt Valley and Wellington.
