Sensational Views Luxury, Comfort & Style

Anawim House is thought to have been Point Howard's very first hillside home, dating back to the late 1800s. Its history is fascinating. In 2017, the present owners completed a near-total rebuild with the help of multi award winning Simon Novak (Novak & Middleton Architects). The property is rich in understated luxury and comfort with great sun, incredible vistas and a deliciously relaxed vibe. Concealed from the road, there are panoramic views from almost every part of the house. No expense was spared in the quest for perfection, from soaring cathedral ceilings to a discreet commercial grade heating and cooling system, exquisite lighting design and hardwood floorboards. It is fully insulated and double glazed. The Poggenpohl cook's kitchen lacks nothing and includes a butler's pantry, scullery, Gaggenau appliances and Dekton bench tops. There is a fabulous outdoor kitchen for alfresco catering. Outdoor flow is integral to the design, ensuring a constant connection with considered landscaping and surrounding nature. Perfect as a permanent home or a convenient lock up and leave, this property is located within a 20 minute drive (off-peak) to central Wellington and a short walk to the beach.

A perfectly formed drive leads past a citrus and rose garden to an automated gate, the double garage and generous forecourt. The home is concealed from the road and the immense beauty of the setting is evident on arrival.

The upper lounge is up a short flight of stairs off the kitchen, and is the internal access point from the garage. This generous, multi-dimensional room is rich in texture and a favourite relaxation spot. Australian Spotted Gum timber flooring, a soaring cathedral ceiling and dramatic tracts of windows displaying magnificent harbour views indulge the senses with a feast. North and west facing, the room is very sunny. Bi-folding doors open the room to the main deck and outdoor kitchen.

The lower lounge combines living and dining on a slightly more formal level. A stunning panorama from the tree-clad hills around the bays, to the sparkling water and twinkling city lights, make this a thrilling west facing room in which to entertain friends and family. As throughout the house, the lighting design is perfect and includes Italian custom made, handblown glass shades.

Simply the best and larger than most, the kitchen includes a scullery to the rear (with second sink, dishwasher and great storage) plus a further butler's pantry that can be closed off when required. All appliances are top of the range and sure to impress the most avid of cooks. The flooring of solid Australian Spotted Gum and Dekton bench tops offer a beautiful aesthetic and a high level of durability. Opening to the front patio with a bank of bi-folding doors, the ocean view is ever present.

A mosaic tiled powder room with the 4th toilet and hand washbasin serves the kitchen and living rooms on the upper ground floor.

On the lower ground floor and adjoining Bedroom 2 the study is a magnificent room with rich Spotted Gum floorboards and a window that perfectly frames an exquisite view. For the longer term guest or adult offspring it is also perfect as an additional sitting room.

With even more extensively panoramic views the outdoors is a further aspect to relish in this sensational home. The owners have developed wonderfully manageable, landscaped grounds that are mostly planted with natives and consist of pockets of delightful spaces around the property. A charming citrus grove and rose garden presents beauty and fragrance on the driveway approach. If on foot, a timber stairway leads from here to the house. Surrounding the house on the upper ground level is a small lawn area with fruit trees and blueberry bushes. Large decks (built 2017) allow for much of your summer living to be enjoyed outside.

Part of the major rebuild in 2017, the double garage is large and discreetly appointed. It has (fit for purpose) carpet on the floor and an additional space that is currently used as a gym. Adjoining is a room with concrete walls that has excellent conditions for wine storage. From the garage, walk up the stairs for internal access via the upper lounge. There is also outdoor parking space for 3 cars.

Students in this area attend private and integrated schools all over the Hutt Valley and Wellington region. Zoned for Muritai School in Eastbourne (decile 10, primary and intermediate) and Hutt Valley High School in Central Hutt.

The central heating throughout the home is a commercial grade system that also serves for cooling in the warmer months. Discreetly vented in the ceilings (upper floor) and walls (lower floor) and with individual temperature control in each room, it was selected for its high end specification.
