Darling Days Bay

Just moments from the beach, bush walks, cafes and park this charming cottage conceals a tasteful, architect designed renovation behind its character facade. A high stud, polished floorboards and double glazing in most rooms offer a lovely aesthetic and high comfort factor. It is difficult to imagine a better home or location for downsizers, smaller families or professionals who desire a relaxed lifestyle. The bedrooms and bathrooms are configured to maximise privacy for times when you have a full house. Flow to a spacious north facing deck and leafy dell is superb. Bi-folding doors in the lounge ensure maximum enjoyment of this sunny, sheltered spot. This property is much admired and Moana Road is a tightly held, sought after address for its native bush setting, birdlife and proximity to Eastbourne Village. The nearby 20 minute Days Bay commuter ferry is a terrific bonus. View soon and prepare to fall in love!

Open plan to the kitchen and flowing from the dining room, the lounge has a wall of bi-folding doors that open up to the spacious deck. Extensive (double) glazing, a high stud, neutral walls and polished floorboards create a spacious, outward looking experience. A brand new heat pump is discreetly placed for super efficient heating throughout the house.

The 'front room' is the perfect spot for dining, with space for entertaining a large group, polished floorboards and a glazed door opening to the lounge and kitchen.

As good as new, this modern kitchen is an easy place to cook, with a combination of open shelving and cabinetry. There is a breakfast bar and it looks great from the lounge, too.

1. The main bedroom is a generous double in the 'East Wing', being part of the architect designed extension completed in approximately 2008.

This beautifully private room is carpeted and has a built-in wardrobe.

3. Located at the front of the house, this bedroom has polished floorboards and is currently set up as a study/library.

1. Conveniently located beside Bedroom 1, with a heated towel rail, extractor fan and electric wall fan heater.

The separate laundry is located off the hallway between bathroom 1 and the kitchen, in the 'east wing'. Laundry tub.

The front garden (on Hutt City Council Road Reserve) has a small lawn and planted borders. The feijoa hedge to the front has provided plenty of tasty fruit in past years. Looks good - and tastes good! The rear of the property opens on three sides to the large deck which in turn floors to a native dell and charming creek at the northern end. A wonderfully green outlook from the living and bedrooms.

A single car pad offers off-street parking for one car.
