A design savvy 1905 Bay Villa restoration in the heart of Westmere with more than a little consideration for the environment, this three bedroom home has been extended and transformed into a stylish and sustainable sanctuary.
Full of character, care has been taken to ensure the flow from old to new is in keeping with the spirit of the era. The rear extension includes an open-plan kitchen and dining area that flows outward to a verandah overlooking a private organic oasis. This foodie haven includes banana, cherimoya, apple, feijoa, olive, plus espaliered fig and pear trees, a grapevine, and kitchen garden with raised vege beds. A shell pathway winds through mature landscaping which has seasonal interest.
The interior detail is considered and impressive here, with high ceilings, authentic industrial light fittings, Osmo oil/wax finished rimu floors and a formal living room featuring an efficient wood burner. The bespoke period-inspired solid timber kitchen combines eucalyptus and Lawson cyprus cabinetry by Natural Kitchens, with a number of gentle-on-the-environment but easy-on-convenience features.
The extension also includes a porcelain-tiled bathroom with clawfoot bath, shower, and separate toilet. A compact laundry has built-in storage above, and eco-friendly Bio Paints have been used throughout this well-insulated home.
Walking and cycling is a breeze with West Lynn shops just a minute up the road, Harvest Wholefoods is on your doorstep, as well as The Gypsy Tea Room and the bustling Grey Lynn Farmers' Market on Sundays. A bus stop is a short walk with the CBD so easy to access - offstreet parking is there if you need it. The current owners have enjoyed this home for many years and now it's time for a new custodian to relish this little piece of paradise.
