With street appeal in abundance, one lucky owner will benefit from the joys a large double garage and off-street parking offer. Enjoy a swift ascent up the path to a front-door located on the South-West side of the home. Equally there’s a second and third door around two further sides of the home, making your choice of access as easy as 1, 2, 3!

What a grand space to host in or relax after a busy day at work. One can enjoy the sun-drenched afternoons and evenings curled up on the couch watching a favourite TV show or engulfed in a favourite book, but it’s the Southward-facing bay window that is the star of the show. Here you can spend countless hours watching the sea, cloud formations, bird life, ships and stunning sunsets.

Oh how the mind boggles – isn’t it great to have a blank canvas at your disposal. Maybe, just maybe, the new owners would flip the home around to have the kitchen and lounge at the front, and the bedrooms at the back; exciting opportunities await – either way!

1. This double bedroom comes complete with character-laden, stained-glass windows with afternoon sun and sea views in abundance. The built-in double wardrobe with an overhead storage space will please those who require additional space.

2. This good-sized second bedroom, also with a built in double wardrobe with overhead storage. As it’s nearest the current kitchen position will be popular for those who fancy midnight snacks!

1. Conveniently located for great access for all members of the family and visiting guests. Simple in layout and complete with all that’s needed. Shower over bath, a wall mounted basin, a built-in cupboard with mirror, and WC.

Located strategically with both internal access via the bathroom, and external access too. With a bit of reconfiguring, this room and the sunroom next door, could easily become a third bedroom!

Located on a generously sized section, there’s a fair bit on offer here. Will the new owners build a deck off the front of the home, or level off some section at the rear of the property as they place a deck with spa pool overlooking the Cook Strait?

Ample room here with a large double door garage complete with side access catering for the most enthusiastic of collectors. Off-street parking for numerous cars is an added bonus too.

Who doesn’t like their very own sunroom? Complete with both internal access for those fancy their morning tea and toast while overlooking the Cook Strait, and can also be the main front door access too! Isn’t it great to have options aplenty!

On top of overhead storage in both bedrooms, the large double garage and sizable laundry area, there’s a healthy-sized space in the basement for all your belongings!
