Only once in a while does something so special come on the market. It's been almost 40 years since this graceful turn-of-the-century home has been for sale. Over the last 40 years this home has been busy providing the space and grace for this creative family to thrive. It's definitely not easy saying goodbye. And there isn't another like it.
Built on the middle of two sites on the north-facing side of First Avenue, this incredible 809m2 site provides the amphitheatre for your family to live out their dreams. Walking from the beautifully open and voluminous living area to the substantial deck and entertaining area below, you know that this is a home that can really throw a party. Incredibly private grounds are expansive while the double street frontage and garaging is pure gold!
The main house holds 5 bedrooms (or 4 with two living rooms). There's character and a soulful artistic style every where you look - from the kauri architraves, to the glowing polished floors and divine farmhouse kitchen complete with its Brazilian marble top. The master upstairs comes with its own ensuite, study and views to Auckland city to make your heart sing.
Accessed separately underneath the home is a further bedroom, living area and bathroom - perfect for a boarder or extended family to stay. Added to this is a writer's room in the garden - although Auckland CBD is only moments away this house has all the space for your mind to travel when you want to.
Kingsland Village is just steps away with its hip mix of bars, restaurants and thriving cafe scene. Crave, Citizen Park, Portland Lounge, Drummer Boy, Taiko, you can live really well here and with so many transport options on your doorstep you can get to where you need to be with ease. There are also great local schools including MAGs, WSC, Newton Central & Kowhai Intermediate.
This is a dream opportunity. Make it yours!
