Magnificently Modern 1970s Home

When modernising this stunning home throughout, the current owners retained the 1970s aesthetic and form that drew them to it 38 years ago. Subtle architect designed extensions and improvements have created a contemporary connection to the outdoors from the master suite and almost every living space. Multiple decks and beautiful gardens maximise enjoyment of bush and sea views, sunshine and shelter. The beach is just a few minutes walk away and the two level interior is breathtakingly beautiful. Double glazed and freshly painted throughout, with central heating, insulation and a wood burning stove, your desire for comfort will be truly satisfied. York Bay offers peace, tranquility and an established community with easy access to Wellington CBD by car, bus or the 20 minute commuter ferry (from Days Bay). As part of Eastbourne and Bays you will enjoy excellent community shops, cafes, parks and schools all nearby. We have high praise for this home and location, and think you will, too. Flexible settlement to suit you. Call us, and view asap!

This inviting room capitalises on sweeping bush and harbour views, all year sun and the beauty of a tree-top setting. A tawa lined chapel ceiling and fitted bookshelves offer a warm, textural interest. A north facing wall of bi-folding doors open to extend out to a sheltered, curved deck that complements the natural contours of the hills.

This welcoming room forms a link between the kitchen and lounge and has a large wood burning stove. As throughout the upper floor, the floor plan and a soaring chapel ceiling gives a combined sense of intimacy and space. The outlook is to native trees and established gardens to the north and to the west. You have the pleasure of a sea view through the floor to ceiling lounge window.

A veritable 'snug' off the kitchen, with fitted bookshelves and room for a couple of comfy armchairs or a desk.

1. This suite feels like you just checked in to a luxurious hotel. Plush new carpet (throughout the bedrooms) provides comfort underfoot. There are wardrobes and drawers crafted from maple, and a wall of bi-folding glass doors that open to the lower of the two north and west facing, curved decks. A bathroom is ensuite and there is a central heating vent.

2. A generous double, with central heating vent, fitted wardrobes and a glorious rhododendron tree outside the window.

3. A good double, with central heating vent, fitted wardrobes and bookshelves plus the bonus of a leafy outlook.

4. A single room with central heating vent, fitted wardrobe and an outlook to the curved deck and gardens.

1. Ensuite to Bedroom 1. Light, bright and fresh - fully tiled with a large shower, heated towel rail, extractor fan and central heating vent. An infinity gas water heater serves this room exclusively.

2. This home offers style and luxury, even at bath time. A brilliant white vanity and bath are the perfect contrast to marble effect tiles on the floor and walls, and in the large shower. There is underfloor heating and a heated towel rail.

A third toilet is conveniently located upstairs.

The laundry will not disappoint! Sleek, stylish and practical. It has generous white cabinetry, a butler's sink and a rack for drying shirts. The electric hot water cylinder is contained in a tall cupboard and is perfect for airing clothes. The washing machine and drier, new in 2020, are included as chattels.

Refurbished only two years ago, the kitchen is luxurious and practical. High gloss cabinetry blends with engineered stone bench tops, conical glass light pendants and polished matai floorboards. Substantially scaled and resourced, this is a kitchen for those who love to cook. A door leads directly outdoors, and the open plan, informal dining area is great for those who prefer to socialise with the cook! There is direct access to a favourite deck for alfresco dining.

The grounds have been lovingly landscaped to complement the natural beauty of the hills and to maximise the time you enjoy the outdoors, without leaving home. Native trees and floral displays offer year round beauty. Generous decks are aspected to all directions; for dining, socialising or just plain relaxing. A stone fountain is the centrepiece to a rock pool. The character workshop/garden shed has 3 phase power.

There are two separate places to park close to the front door. One is covered, the other has additional space for a trailer or small boat.

Storage is generous.
