Sunshine, Character, & Leafy Seclusion

This much loved cottage sits on a sunny corner site close to the beach, bus stop and entrance to East Harbour Regional Park. The York Bay walking track leads to native forest and a gorgeous waterfall. Built in the 1940s, the home has been maintained to a high standard by owners past and present and is ready for you to simply move in and enjoy. On a single level it flows seamlessly between a semi-open plan kitchen and dining room, and separate lounge. Double glazed ranch sliders open to the gorgeous gardens around the house. The bedrooms are all doubles, two are ensuite, and an internal access garage adds further comfort. Fenced for pets and children, this home is perfect for those starting out on the property ladder or seeking a delightful downsize. Great for families too, this is a jewel in paradise so view soon to avoid missing out.

Arrive via the internal access garage or through one of the garden gates, along the leafy, floral path and to this gorgeous entrance hall. Filled with natural light it has a tiled floor and provides a hint of the lovely rooms leading from it.

Flowing from the hall and dining room, the lounge is spacious and a delightful place to relax, reflect and enjoy with family and friends. Super sunny, the room flows to the gardens through a north facing (double glazed) ranch slider. Matai floorboards complement the beauty of native trees and plants framed by the ranch slider and window. A modern wall set gas 'fire' provides ambience and warmth during the colder months. The wall mounted television is a chattel.


A favourite spot for meal time, coffee time and enjoying sunshine any time. The polished matai floor and rimu door adds texture and warmth, and the outdoors is brought inside via a north facing (double glazed) ranch slider. And when the doors are open, you can relax knowing the children and pets are playing in a fully fenced garden.

The kitchen offers an outlook to white hydrangeas in the garden and easy flow to the adjoining dining room. A ceramic tiled floor and fresh decor add to the light appearance of this practical room. As with the rest of this home, time spent in the kitchen is a pleasure.
