The minute you open the gate and step behind the brick privacy wall you will be captivated by this picture-perfect home, set in its English garden. Open the door and there will be no going back. The welcoming entry with its soaring ceilings and authentic yesterday feel will entice you to explore further.
This home has been modernised in a way that respects its past. The spacious living area, with its gas fire, is a place to relax with friends and family. A window seat, your built-in chaise longue, is a personal space, a place that feels like it is in the garden, a place to read a book.
Next door is the dining room. Gather at the long table, in front of a roaring open fire, to sup and sip and connect. Whereas the dining is quite formal, the kitchen with its extended contemporary island is the opposite. This is for breakfast on the run or cocktails at dusk. This is space for chef and guests to share. Double doors open from here to the covered patio and the omnipresent garden, with its organic vege plot, a cool spot to shelter from the coming summer sun. And when winter returns you will be warmed inside by gas central heating.
The elegant staircase leads up to a landing and three big bedrooms, each as peaceful as the downstairs living. A secure double garage, constructed to match the feel of the house, is a bit of a rarity in this location. And talking of location, it is at the city end of Mt Eden, a quality neighbourhood, within easy walking distance of a train station that will soon be transformed to offer access east, west and north to the city. With plans to add trams on nearby Dominion Rd, that will whisk you to the airport, the first part of your journey to New York will be an easy and fun one. Whether you have kids or not, the in-zone schools AGS, MAGS, Kowhai and Mt Eden Normal, plus nearby Fucino, add value to your asset.
Ahhhh, this feels like home.
