Proudly positioned at one of Northcote Point’s most coveted Queen Street addresses, this freehold, north-facing estate soaks up everything the sought-after area has to offer. Number 109 is located just opposite the Bridgeway Cinema and Halls Beach, fully immersed at the heart of the celebrated heritage neighbourhood.
The traditional three-bedroom weatherboard villa has been refurbished with a modern makeover, but all enhancements have retained, enhanced and elegantly restored the original features. An electric coded gate provides secure entry into the property, which is protected by a white wooden fence. The veranda, bay windows and intricate fretwork create a picture-perfect street front impression, with these character elements continued inside.
In classic villa style, the floorplan sees four rooms located off the main entry hall. It’s been extended and expanded at the rear to offer an expansive, open-plan kitchen, living and dining area. Rich wood panelling runs the length of the hallway, while polished Kauri floors, original high ceilings and sash windows tell a tale of yesteryear. French doors open into the front lounge, which has an ornate gas fireplace, white plantation shutters and a peek of the water, as does the front bedroom across the hall. The master has elegant drapes and a luxurious ensuite, plus a heat pump and double-glazed window for extra warmth. The family bathroom with bath services the remaining accommodation, which have new carpet and fitted wardrobes.
The voluminous, open-plan living and dining room is illuminated with designer lights from Leopold Hall, while the contemporary kitchen has a breakfast bar, island bench and high-quality appliances. French floor-to-ceiling bifolds flow out to the sunny deck and well-established, easy-care and fully-fenced rear garden. Both the front lawn and this lawn are due to be replaced with pristine Woolgro grass and have an irrigation system fitted.
This is arguably one of the Point’s finest positions. Halls Beach is a much-loved locals bay and the perfect place to swim, kayak or paddleboard. The boutique Bridgeway Cinema is a local icon, as is the historic Northcote Tavern and garden bar, an easy walk down the street. This is combined with the top-quality restaurants, cafes and bars all within walking distance from home, plus the ferry to the city for commuters.
This is character living at its best in one of the North Shore’s most coveted heritage suburbs.
