Built in an era when grand homes were popping up along Takapuna's 'Golden Mile' this gracious home, tastefully renovated, still retains a stately elegance and many original features which blend superbly together with everything a modern family could need.
Located in the very heart of Takapuna with everything this Blue Chip coastal neighbourhood has to offer - stroll to the beach, enjoy breakfast at one of the many cafes' nearby or meet up with family or friends for drinks, dinner and a show - this iconic home is simply charming.
Set well off the road behind an electric gate on approx 673m2 freehold site the property is elevated to take in the stunning views of Rangitoto Island and central Takapuna. With multiple living areas, 3 double bedrooms, a sleepout, 2 bathrooms and a huge fully fitted laundry, it offers plenty of space and formal and informal living areas where family time can be enjoyed or friends can be entertained in comfort. The modern kitchen is fabulous with French Doors opening out to a north facing rear deck and garden - together with a large conservatory there are plenty of private spaces to relax and unwind, and the front lawn is secure with plenty of room for kids to run around. Upstairs are three double bedrooms and family bathroom, including the master which is spacious with pitched ceilings and a small balcony with views in both directions to the sea and Lake Pupuke.
There is a large, free-standing garage with loft storage and plenty of off street parking.
An opportunity to further explore development options are also on offer with concept drawings available to extend the existing property, or possible subdivision with 'Mixed Urban' zoning. A chance to own one of these elegant homes is rare, so make it a priority viewing.
Zoned for Takapuna Primary, Takapuna Grammar and Westlake Girls High School.
