Sitting high and proud on an elevated corner site, this large character villa is an absolute charmer. Renovated in the 1990's in a French country style, you will step inside and feel like you have been transported to a delightful French villa as the ambiance and decor surrounds you.
Full of character features including high board and batten ceilings, kauri floor boards and doors, an original tiled fireplace and beautiful coloured glass panes in several of the rooms this home has a charm all of its own. This villa has colour and a distinctive style from the outside in.
There is an abundance of space upstairs, with three bedrooms plus a lounge room, family bathroom, additional living area and open plan kitchen and dining space. The large east facing windows in the kitchen/dining area allow you to enjoy the sunrise with views to North Head, as you sit on the window seat and sip your morning coffee. The kitchen with its rustic charm provides a hub for family and friends and for added ambience decorate the wagon wheel chandelier with candles and enjoy the romance of this wonderful home.
There are French doors off the living area out to the deck, which has expansive elevated views of North head and provides a beautiful shady spot to enjoy the long summer evenings.
The downstairs area gives you options: Potentially you could operate as a separate AirB&B, work from home or just enjoy the home as one big family space. There is a kitchenette in one of the rooms plus a bedroom and a living room. A fully tiled bathroom and a separate laundry are also located down here.
There is a large terraced garden and covered outdoor entertaining area plus raised garden beds and fruit trees. The single garage which sits at the bottom of the garden, has an eco- friendly "green" roof which extends your garden space and is full of daffodils in the spring. You have off street parking for one vehicle and potential to develop this further.
The location is superb, situated in a quiet tree lined street only minutes' walk to the waterfront, local beaches, or the local café at the end of the street for your morning coffee. Just a walk to popular Devonport Primary and in the zone for Takapuna Grammar. This large character villa has been a cherished family home for 30 years, and the time has come for it to be lived in and loved by a new owner. Take the opportunity to make it yours!
