Very special and much-cherished, this huge, securely gated, 7082m2 lifestyle property is extremely rare so close to bustling Titirangi village, little more than five minutes' walk away. The just updated Remuera-style, classic character home was built in 1927 for serenity and sun with wide north-west-facing views that reach into and over surrounding native bush. It boasts lovely original Californian bungalow features including gleaming wide plank rimu floors in the living and downstairs bedrooms, rimu window frames, skirtings and architraves as well as beamed ceilings with ornate plastered ceiling roses for the chandeliers. Over the last 20 years, it has been owned by one family, who have created dramatic tropical gardens within a sprawling private wonderland of expansive sun-kissed lawns. There is a flying fox and a kids' playground. Without a neighbour in sight, it is an absolute delight for children and parents alike. But there is still opportunity for you to develop it further by adding a pool and tennis court.
At 370m2, the six bedroom home is substantial. Enormous open living makes for impressive entertaining with warmth generated by a log fire and heat pump. Elevated decks, a deep sheltered Somerset Maughan-style verandah and a terrace in front let you savour the sun while entertaining outdoors from morning til dusk. Family life revolves around the modern designer granite kitchen adjacent to a sunny breakfast bar. A large living addition with a second lounge and a children's rumpus plus an extra bathroom and laundry facilities provides still more space. Upstairs a generous adult suite with a room-sized fitted dressing room lets you escape to breath-taking views. Recarpeted, repainted, pristine and ready for the next phase, the property includes triple car garaging with a spacious office or home gym. The location offers a choice of high Decile schools including Titirangi and Woodlands Park Primary. Definitely a once in a life-time opportunity not to be missed.
