Renovate and Relish this Days Bay Gem

"No better place to make precious memories", says the family whose home this has been for 45+ years. Yes, it is ready for renovation but the effort will be all worthwhile. Set in a lush and peaceful enclave looking across Days Bay to the harbour, the quirky design offers scope for privacy as well as plenty of time together. The three floor 'tower wing' houses a circular living room with beautiful views at the top, and forms part of the spacious lounge in the middle. At ground floor level, with external access, it is a brilliant 4th bedroom for a teenager or guests, an office or studio. The 703sqm site is gorgeous, offering plenty of space for ball games and clambering around native trees. Regional park land makes for a lovely neighbour. And nearby? The beach, bush tracks, tennis courts, cafes and restaurants, Williams Park and the fabulous East West commuter ferry - they are all a few minutes' walk away. Come and take a look - this might be just what you were hoping to find!

Rating Valuation $870,000.

Tender closes 11th November 2021 at 12 noon, Level 1, 12 Jessie Street, Wellington.

Flowing from the kitchen, the split level living room is a lovely, spacious, multi-dimensional space. Shift your furniture to suit the seasons and enjoy the lovely light that enters windows from all directions. This room has seen many happy social occasions, and is perfect for large and small gatherings alike. Flow out to the deck to enjoy the finest of sunsets. A wood burner provides toasty warmth during winter.

Accessed via a circular staircase from the lounge, and with a stunning view of the bay and harbour, this will become a firm family favourite! The circular design with seating all around makes for a very convivial atmosphere. Morning coffee, afternoon tea and your favourite sundowner - they all taste better when enjoyed with family and friends in this fabulous space.

1. With dual access, this double room can be opened to or closed off from the living room via shoji style doors. A double fitted wardrobe, with cupboards above, forms a dressing area by the main access, which is discreetly positioned off the living room.

2. A generous double. Located off the kitchen and with a high chapel ceiling, its own ensuite bathroom and access to the rear garden via French doors. This room offers a delightful quality of light that makes it a lovely place to start the day.

3. Opposite the family bathroom, with a high chapel ceiling and French doors to the rear garden.

4. A spacious double, this will be every teenager's dream - a circular room, separately accessed a few steps away from the kitchen door. This room is carpeted, with underfloor heating. A versatile space, it is also great as a studio, office, gym or guest room.

1. Ensuite to Bedroom 2, with shower over 'shub' and a separate toilet.

2. The family bathroom is spacious, light and bright. The corner bath has a shower above and the tiled floor is heated.

Separate, with access to the garden.

Rimu cabinetry, a funky island cooktop unit and open plan shelving make this a warm, welcoming family hub. French doors lead to the rear deck, making sunny, summer barbeques a doddle. A circular wall opening lends a sense of drama to the connection between the dining room and lounge.

Spanning 703sqm of land, this stunning site is beautifully landscaped to an informal design and offers something for everyone. Floral borders, while low maintenance, will please those with green fingers. The lawn is perfect for pets, children and adults to be as relaxed or active as the moment commands. Framed by bush to the rear, your children have plenty of space to explore and be at one with nature. The kitchen deck is the ultimate summer spot for sheltered, outdoor dining, any time of day or night. The spa currently set into the deck is not functional. The encroachment onto adjoining regional park land (including the driveway) has not been legalised and a note in the LIM makes reference to this.

The driveway offers plenty of off-street parking. Built to a permit in approximately1982, the driveway is part of the encroachment into regional park land.

Muritai School (Primary/Intermediate) and Hutt Valley High School.

Wood burner in lounge, Underfloor heating in family bathroom.
