Located at the heart of Northcote Point, this beautifully refurbished home presents a functional, flexible floorplan.  The two-level, solid brick residence offers four bedrooms, two bathrooms and two living areas, making it perfect for families as well as those who may wish to use part as an Airbnb, teenage retreat or a perfect  home office scenario.

Northcote Point is one of the North Shore’s most highly sought-after suburbs – loved for its heritage atmosphere and close proximity to the CBD. Number 1/169 Queen Street is perfectly placed within easy walking distance to all the local eateries and popular watering holes, including Stafford Road Wine Bar, The Engine Room, the Northcote Tavern and the Bridgeway Cinema. The neighbourhood is central and convenient, just a short drive from both Ponsonby and Takapuna, with the bus stop at the top of the road. The real bonus for commuters is the ferry – making for an easy, pleasant journey to the city for work and play.

The 190m2 residence is deceptively large and has been renovated with a designer’s eye, creating a light-filled, stylish haven perfect for living and entertaining. Crisp white walls, new carpet and feature wallpaper create the contemporary living environment, with the north-facing aspect ensuring maximum light and sun. Entry level is on the top floor, where the open-plan lounge and dining space spills out to a private entertaining deck. The stylish kitchen has stone bench tops and a large breakfast island. The fully enclosed tropical garden and flat lawn out front is the perfect place for young children and pets to play safely.

There are two double bedrooms with built-in wardrobes and a bathroom located up here, before a glass balustrade-enclosed staircase arrives down to the ground floor. The large lounge down here has spacious dimensions and a study nook, plus two more double bedrooms and a bathroom. With its own separate entrance, this space lends itself to numerous living, working and extended family living options.

It’s not just aesthetics that have been modernised, as the residence boasts a fully insulated roof and floor, double glazing in the bedrooms and two large heat pumps. There’s space to park off-street, as well as an internally-accessed single garage, making this investment a solid one.

The current owners are Australia-bound so are sadly saying goodbye to their family home. They’ve loved the location and fabulous neighbourhood and have renovated their home to an excellent standard, leaving absolutely nothing to do for the fortunate new owner.

Panoramic City Views – Waterfront Location

Address | 5 Norwood Road, Bayswater

Viewing | Saturday & Sunday 2.15 -3.00pm
Auction | 8th March 2020 at 11.00am – Onsite (USP)

Agent |Mark Robinson – 021 627 522

This brick and cedar absolute waterfront estate, showcases incredible and ever-changing panoramic views spanning a colossal 1467m2 of perfectly flat land on the Bayswater peninsula.

Number 5 is located at farthest end of the peaceful, picturesque neighbourhood, just a short walk from the ferry. This service, coupled with the beautiful scenery, evokes feelings of living on an island. Home is a true sanctuary, but the CBD is just a short journey away, as are the local schools and busy townships of Takapuna and Devonport.

The property is protected from the road by wrought iron gates, which open into the well-established grounds and gardens at the front of the site. The fact that the residence is positioned so far back from the road means there is vast amounts of off-street parking, along with enough space to craft a minor dwelling if required.

The current owner has lived here for the past 18 years and raised her children here. All have cherished the large scale family celebrations their home has had the proportions to accommodate over the years, including weddings, birthdays, anniversaries and memorable pool parties. It’s the ideal home for large, growing and extended families, with significant space inside and out accommodating everyone with ease.

Crafted in the 70s, the solid brick and block residence boasts the significant scale and dimensions synonymous with the era. It’s been stylishly modernised over time, with a profusion of glass maximising the dazzling view on the seaward-side.  A sweeping curved staircase arrives from the entry foyer up to the top floor, where the outlook is immediately on display. The spectacle encompasses Auckland’s iconic landmarks and an intoxicating vista of land, sea and sky. It’s alive with movement from sunrise ‘til sunset, with the constant activity on the Auckland Ports, boats, yachts, cruise ships and passenger ferries splicing through the harbour, early morning rowers, the lights of the city coming to life at night and regular fireworks displays. The outlook spans the Auckland city skyline and America’s Cup base, Ngataringa Bay, North Head and Mount Victoria.

The key living, dining and kitchen space extends along the front of the house. The kitchen is new and sleek, with lots of storage, stone bench tops, a wine fridge and two breakfast bars. On the other side of the house, another lounge/ office has a stone open fire and flows out to another deck. This area was created with a mid-century Hawaiian aesthetic in mind, with movable wooden shutters and a grapevine-covered pergola overhead.

There are three bedrooms located on this level, with the master enjoying its own ensuite and chic white shutters. One bedroom downstairs is still fully immersed in the sea view, opening out to the vast platform of lawn that extends to the cliff edge. The cliff was reinforced in a large-scale project in conjunction with the council, which lends excellent peace of mind. On the other side, another bedroom offers a semi-self-contained living environment, with its own galley kitchenette, lounge area and outdoor access. This side of the house presents an expansive entertaining terrace, spa and tropically-themed in-ground swimming pool complex.

Along with abundant storage and large separate laundry, the ground floor also offers internal access to the triple garage and sound-proofed music room.

This is a truly rare and unique piece of large waterfront land, which showcases a visual symphony of views.

809m2 Hauraki Goldmine - Develop Or Land Bank

Address | 84 Francis Street, Hauraki

SOLD | In four days!

Agent | Ilse Evans – 021 909 313

On the market for the first time in nearly 50 years, this Hauraki property presents incredible buying for developers and land bankers. Spanning 809m2 of perfectly flat, freehold land on sought-after Francis Street, the prospects and potential are exceptional, with Mixed Housing Urban zoning presenting many development possibilities.

The single-level brick and tile home was originally built in 1946, with the current owner purchasing it in 1971. She’s raised her children here and adored the family-friendly neighbourhood’s proximity to Takapuna, the beach and local parks and reserves.

Francis Street is located in a quiet cul-de-sac off popular Jutland Road, close to picturesque Northboro Reserve. It’s so loved by families due to its proximity to the local playground and café, as well as being in zone for Decile 10 Hauraki School, Belmont Intermediate, Westlake Boys and Girls and Takapuna Grammar. The Hauraki shops and supermarket are also an easy walk from home, with the golden sands of Takapuna beach just down the hill from there. A stroll along the shore arrives at Takapuna’s busy beachside hub, filled with cafes, bars, restaurant and boutiques, as well as the cinema and Bruce Mason Centre. For commuters, there’s the option of the very close Esmonde Road onramp, the excellent bus service, or catching the ferry to the CBD from the Bayswater wharf.

The three-bedroom, one-and-a-half-bathroom residence has been lovingly and immaculately maintained, but is presented in largely original condition. The formal lounge is separate, with the kitchen and dining area the true hub and heart of the home. This space flows out to the deck and level lawn, which is framed with well-established gardens. There are three bedrooms found along the hallway, serviced by the main bathroom and separate toilet.

The beauty of the site are its impressive dimensions, perfectly level land and ease of access. It’s an enticing opportunity indeed for development in a well-connected, convenient and family-friendly location, or could be renovated and expanded to create a family home and true investment in the future.
