A Lovely Place to Call Home

Owned by the same family for 40 years, this gorgeous single level villa is excellently located with a wonderful outlook and a warm, welcoming feel throughout. Sash windows, a dramatically high stud, wide central hallway and period ceilings reflect its early 1900s origins. Together with extensive improvements over the years, including the luxury of gas ducted central heating, they are a tantalising blend of old and new. The sea, hills and leafy trees are your view. From one of Eastbourne's favourite streets your family will enjoy walking everywhere. Wander to the Days Bay commuter ferry, the parks and cafes, beach and bush tracks. Local schools, a vibrant village hub with shops and services - they are all minutes away on foot. Leave the car at home and enjoy all that this wonderful home and seaside community has to offer.

The light and bright entrance hall is entered via a vibrantly painted red front door and leadlight surround.

Highly polished floorboards, a bank of sliding windows to the harbour view and filled with natural light. The living room is the perfect place for your family to retreat, meet, entertain and relish the sunsets.

Open plan to the living room the dining room flows conveniently from the kitchen with polished floorboards and direct access to the north facing deck.

A farmhouse style kitchen with solid Rimu joinery and granite bench top. The kitchen is well resourced with extensive cabinetry, drawers and a generous pantry. Semi-open to the dining area, there is direct access to a charming deck and the rear garden.

1. A generous double with a west facing bay window, high stud and fitted wardrobe. The rambling camellia, leafy trees beyond, and Wellington harbour offer a mesmerising outlook from this relaxing room. The perfect place to soak up the afternoon and evening sun with a good book.

2. A spacious double room with high stud, double fitted wardrobe and original single. Lovely character with sash windows.

3. A west facing single room with fitted wardrobe and drawers.

A large, tongue and groove lined room with high stud, sash window and plenty of potential to incorporate a second bathroom should you wish. There is a toilet, tub and fitted cupboard.

Conveniently located off the entrance to the kitchen, this room works equally well as a rumpus or TV room.

Mature trees, a lawn, a sandpit and even a creek at the end of the garden - your children will love playing outdoors in the sunshine. Watch them as you relax on the deck that flows from the kitchen and dining room. (Please note that the circular brick paved area by the steps is part of 27 Rona Street.)
