Hobson Bay 20 steps away .... Magical

Set at the bottom of a quiet, no-exit street, just by the foreshore and walkways of Hobson Bay, is this Ron Seeto designed Thermalite concrete block home. The views of the bay and surrounding trees is pure New Zealand. The feeling of the house and outdoor living very European.

The construction and garden make this an ideal ‘lock up and leave’. The position provides many of the exercise opportunities, and peace, of being at your beach retreat. And because the home has such a wonderful timeless feeling, plenty of sun, and space to take your special artwork and furniture, you may well choose to spend most of your time at home.

The outdoor living complements the European feeling. The clean lines of the architecture, and the simplicity of it, provides for many alternatives of furnishing style.

The layout of the ground floor provides for good separate living spaces, whilst retaining the atmosphere of space and light that open-plan living best provides. Upstairs the master bedroom suite occupies the northern end of the house. The views are stunning, with great sun, ample wardrobing plus a full bathroom. The two other bedrooms also have views and, together with the family bathroom, are at the opposite end of the house. At the top of the stairs is a study ideal for working from home.

Add a guest’s powder room, great storage plus large double garage, and all your practical needs are met.

But what is so special about this home is that Ron Seeto designed it specifically to make best use of the near ‘beach’ location. The resulting views, the sun and the layout absolutely reflect an understanding of how people prefer to live today.

For sale for just under registered valuation.
