A beautiful home where classic is up-to-date
Claim a piece of Northcote history with research suggesting this could be the oldest residence in the area. This gorgeous and immaculately presented traditional villa C1881 has been sympathetically renovated to create a delightful family home in keeping with many traditional characteristics of the era including the wide entrance hallway, beautiful wooden flooring, soaring ceilings and original fireplaces whilst incorporating modern features such as central heating, spacious open plan living, a stunning kitchen and huge glass sliders that open out to a covered and sheltered patio just off the kitchen and dining.
A 'house of the year' category winner in 2016, this is an entertainer's home as well as a practical family abode. From the patio, the backyard opens up with lawn on one side and a sun soaked courtyard on the other where alfresco dining is to be enjoyed around the outdoor cooking fire. Furthermore, outdoor overhead panel heaters keep you warm whilst chatting on the deck or sitting at the kitchen servery bar watching the kids play in the yard. A versatile home, flexible accommodation options comprise four bedrooms (or three plus media room), with the main bedroom featuring a period fireplace and en-suite bathroom. Outside and adjacent to the courtyard you will find a self-contained apartment that was converted from a triple car garage into a bedroom (fifth), lounge/kitchen and bathroom for an au pair and now extended family. Being separate from the main home this space provides a great area for teenagers to hang out in or a work from home office set up.
At non peak times, the drive into the CBD or Westhaven marina is a mere five minutes as it is to get into Takapuna.
