Family Home with Charm, Peace, Pool and Room for the Teens
Set in its own private environment, in arguably one of Remuera’s best streets, is this charming family home. From the road you would not know the house was there; come down the drive and what emerges is a delightful, colonial styled cedar and stone home, behind its own private walls, with views to the lush surrounding vegetation that is bathed in sun for much of the day.
There is a real feeling of Ralph Lauren inspiration as you enter into the front hall. To the right is the main living room with an open fire and book shelves at one end and French doors to outdoor dining, a sun filled courtyard and pool at the other. The immediate view is through small panel windows to lawn and native bush beyond.
On the left is the family living, dining and open-plan kitchen. This area runs the full width of the house. The effect is light from both sides. French doors again open to the north and the warmth of the sun, outdoor living plus a wonderful topiary garden. At the end of this area is a staircase that takes you to a large room above the garage. This would be ideal as a ‘kid’ hangout room, far enough away from the main living so as to provide a high degree of peace. Alternatively it could be a 5th bedroom or guest area as it also features a kitchenette and its own bathroom.
And then to the second floor of the home. The master suite includes a study or nursery, a full bathroom, walk-in wardrobe and a very large bedroom including sitting and desk area. This suite is separated from the other bedrooms by its own door and hallway. There are three further bedrooms plus family bathroom. Wonderful sun and outlook are key features of this area.
Add to this the large double garage, off-street parking and good sized storage areas and all your practical needs are met.
But what makes this family home so special is the wonderful feeling of peace, room for the kids and a pool to help make summer worth being at home for. All in the heart of Remuera’s much sought after ‘school zone’.
