This elegantly furnished 183m² home is a model example of the exceptionally enduring construction of the 40s era.

The double brick & concrete tile home enjoys one level living extending out to a large back yard complete with special rose bush and a gorgeous outlook over the neighbouring Maskell Street dog park. When the owners’ kids were growing up they would use this as their play area – via a hole in the fence!!

The traditional floor plan features separate lounge and dining with rimu-lined walls; a sunlit family room; three generous bedrooms; a recently updated bathroom; and separate guest toilet. The kitchen is ready for a makeover and overlooks the sunny deck area. A secret room downstairs has served a few purposes over the years (the kids used it as a party place) and is currently used for storage. The single garage is under the home.

After living in this cherished home for nearly three decades, the family has made the difficult decision to up stakes and move on, thereby opening up an opportunity for developers and renovators alike.

The location is superb – just a few minutes’ drive from the attractions and amenities of the waterfront and in zone for Glendowie College, Churchill Park School and St Heliers School. Options abound and you can either live in it or rent it out while you decide what the best way forward is for you.

Don’t wait too long – call now?
