A wide entrance porch leads into the welcoming central hall which connects all of the ground floor rooms; living spaces, two double bedrooms, and main bathroom. Glass doors allow light and view to connect the main entrance with the living room.
The rimu staircase takes you up to a spacious and light filled landing, two further double bedrooms, and a bathroom with separate toilet.

The separate living room offers you a calming and tranquil space away from the rest of the house. The deep wide windows look out to views of the harbour, and welcome the morning sun. Golden matai flooring and a cosy open fire also create an evening retreat of warmth and ambience, with views of the sunset light on the mountains, and the moon rising.

The dining room is bathed in morning to midday/afternoon sun, and again captures the ever changing sea views. There is plenty of flexibility and space for a large dining table for everyone to gather for family meals and stories. The built-in sideboard and sliding servery provide a visual and pleasantly practical connection to the "cook's" kitchen.

The hero of the kitchen is the free standing stainless steel Ilve oven with 6 gas burners. Alongside this the surrounding benches, solid timber construction and practical layout stand this kitchen in good stead, with excellent storage and the original meat safe now functioning perfectly as a pantry. Casual meals can be enjoyed around the island bench.

1. Located on the lower level off the entrance hall the double bedroom features a deep reveal casement window capturing afternoon sun, and large wardrobes with extra overhead storage.

2. Also located on the lower level the bedroom features a large wardrobe with extra under-stair storage, and a side window capturing extra light and sun

3. Upstairs located off the sunny hall landing we have the remaining double bedrooms, these rooms are filled with natural light and capture both sun and harbour views, also offering good sized wardrobes and attic space storage.
The hall landing is a relaxing space to sit and read or study in and enjoy the afternoon sun and warmth, and capturing a charming view of the garden and path.

1. The family bathroom is on the lower floor with a wc, generous shower and vanity, plentiful storage, large heated linen cupboard for sheets, towels and laundry airing, two heated towel rails, plus wall heater.

2. Upstairs the bathroom features a separate wc, bath with hand shower, vanity with plentiful storage, heated towel rail, heater/ expelair.

The separate laundry for the upstairs house is in the sun porch/drying room located next to the dining room, and opens through the back door onto the path which leads down to the washing line in the garden.
The laundry for the flat is in the adjacent basement/workshop.

The steps along the side of the house take you to a very private and comfortable one bedroom flat comprising a spacious living room with heat-pump and enjoying harbour views and morning sun. There is a large eat-in kitchen, double bedroom, bathroom with wc, shower over bath and ventilating fan, airing cupboard, gas hot water, plus an alcove suitable as storage space or small office. The front door opens through a super sunny porch to a sunny and sheltered private flat lawn and rose garden.

This home has lovely outdoor spaces perfect for children to play and adults to relax. These include the sunny flat lawn surrounded by a heritage rose collection and a private sheltered courtyard at the front of the house. The organic vegetable garden has been cherished and was developed in 1960 and provides year round veges, and if you have a hankering for your own free-range eggs there is even room for chickens.
The area below the vegetable garden has potential to be developed by adding a studio or tiny home accommodation for extra family members, or subdivide the sunny section and build your dream home, with drive on. The opportunities are endless.

The large double garage has room for extra and overhead storage, plus a trapdoor to the firewood storage area below.

Throughout the house there is ample storage cupboards and wardrobes.

* Roseneath School
* Hataitai School
* Evans Bay Intermediate
* Wellington College
* Wellington East Girls' College
* Wellington High School

Open fire in the living room and heat pump in the dining room.

The huge basement is currently used as a workshop and houses the laundry for the flat. There is a very large mezzanine storage loft plus other shelving built in. It has great potential as a hobby space, or to be developed as an extension to the flat.

There is insulation underneath the house and in the ceiling.
