Townhouse Twist on a Character Home
Built circa 1905, this turn of the century double story villa has been lovingly restored over the years resulting in a breath-taking transformation of modern meets character.
From the moment you step through the front door the proportions of a home of this era are apparent with a wide internal hallway and high ceilings.
There are four huge double bedrooms and three bathrooms. The master bedroom has a stunning ornate ceiling, which will appeal to the character lovers, as well as an ensuite and generous walk-in robe.
With all the mod cons there are still rich classic elements such as timber flooring, Italian handmade tiles, plaster archway, the original fireplace and detailed wooden architraves, which pay homage to the original beauty of this home. The original sash windows have been double-glazed and the expansive layout basks in lovely sunlight. The kitchen is an entertainer's delight with a huge island bench, oodles of storage and a separate walk-in butler's pantry. The open plan dining/living, which spills out to a north facing balcony, completes this space where there is plenty of room for the whole family. The separate lounge is huge yet cosy, retaining its character with the original fireplace, and makes for a charming refuge.
Zoned for ChCh Boys and ChCh Girls High School, Elmwood Primary and Heaton Intermediate and walking distance to an array of private educational opportunities you have schooling covered. With all the advantages of townhouse living so close to Merivale, but with the proportions of a character family home, homes like this are a rare find. Don't take my word for it, come and see for yourself.
