Fabulous Single-Level Living in Hauraki
Originally a brick bungalow, this delightful character-filled home was moved to the rear section 20 years ago and, alongside an exterior reclad, many of its quality 1950s features were sensibly retained. Its quintessential Kiwi bungalow 'bones' are evidenced by long timber-framed windows; wide, sheltering eaves; elevated, ventilated floor and attractive, interior high-ceiling scotia detail.
For the current owners, a chapter spanning almost two decades of happy, homely, family living in this top location is nearing its conclusion and their decision to start a new chapter has created a rare opportunity for a young couple, family or active downsizer/s to seize.
With light, airy spaces, easy flow and convenient, accessible location this home has evoked much joy and been an absolute breeze to live in. A full refurbishment three years ago added fresh, stylish appeal to the bathroom / semi-ensuite and an updated kitchen that draws its mid-century character from the original home.
French doors open from three separate rooms onto two decks - front and rear, offering both a perfect morning coffee spot and an ideal space for evening drinks, entertaining and BBQs. Beautifully landscaped for peace, birdsong and seclusion, the decks are linked by an expansive, fenced, flat lawn area ideal for backyard cricket and family play! Plenty of off-street parking too!
The internal access, carpeted garage and adjoining, custom-made, timber shed offer a variety of options for extra living spaces, home office, studio and/or storage.
And of course, residents of this property enjoy the endless benefits of everyday Hauraki living - a short walk to Takapuna Beach, Hauraki School, local cafes, playground, Bayswater Reserve cyclepaths, supermarket, medical and the retail centre at Hauraki Corner for all essential needs. Esmonde Road motorway on-ramp is two minutes away providing easy city access.
This is a superb, convenient and attractive location to make the most of whatever stage of life you're enjoying. Invest in your future, short or long term, and settle in this desirable, friendly suburb now.
