Marketed by Chloe Wither

Alfred Buckland, of the Buckland's Beach family, was no fool and even back in 1884 he knew more than a thing or two about astute property buying. Along with sizeable parcels of land in Mangere, the Waikato, Highwic House in Epsom and his own private racecourse, he was also the original owner of 359 Richmond Rd and much of the surrounding land.

Spread over two levels, this lovely, light filled 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom home with a freestanding, super-sized, self-contained studio, currently configured as a 1 bedroom unit, has charm and character aplenty. Not your usual Grey Lynn house, and with its delightful, private, French inspired garden, there is a certain 'je ne sais quoi' here.

A wonderfully oversized front door welcomes you into the reception area and leads you through to the formal lounge. On this level, there are also two large bedrooms, one opening onto the wide, wrap-around verandah and the garden beyond. The family bathroom includes a touch of luxury... a genuine Royal Doulton claw-foot bath. At the heart of the home is the open plan kitchen, dining and living with cathedral windows, which connects to the private, paved courtyard, the perfect space for gathering family and friends. Up the stairs, the spacious master bedroom complete with ensuite, dressing area and north facing balcony enjoys an elevated, tropical outlook.

There's options galore with the generous studio currently configured as a 1 bedroom unit... an ideal work space, teenager's retreat, home for extended family or that lucrative additional income to help supplement the mortgage. Fully fenced and private from the street, there's secure parking and a handy storage shed.

Well positioned, it's a quick stroll to the ever popular West Lynn village, Farro and Cox's Bay.

This really is a little slice of country in the city. Calling this gorgeous old gal 'home' will be easy and with the vendors heading offshore... make your move!
