Sold in Conjunction with Steve Koerber, Ray White Remuera
If you believe the company you keep is a predictor of future success, you'll definitely be impressed by the scale and grandeur of neighbouring homes as you walk the tree-lined approach to this delightful Terry Hitchcock designed gem.
Offered for the first time since it was built for the current owners in the year 2003, the pleasing layout and exceptional flow encompass their original desire for an easy-care lifestyle with private manageable gardens in a superb location.
For anyone seeking a classic lock & leave home that's not too big and not too small, this timeless cedar weatherboard & early cavity-clad home faces north on its own freehold plot and is shielded from the elements by a quality copper roof. There's even an underground wine cellar.
Arriving home feels like you've stepped into an art gallery. The entry foyer with vaulted ceilings and a wide staircase bathes in natural light. Formal and informal living areas are delineated by a centerpiece kitchen equipped with as-new appliances and a handy servery. The owners will miss many features - especially their laundry shute, the attic storage space, and the intriguing man-cave-like basement (wine cellar perhaps).
If walking is your passion, you'll enjoy your own direct easement access to Waiata Reserve. Turn right for the path to the Remuera Village or left down to the Orakei Basin. Pleasant vistas from various angles include acres of parkland, and Baradene College and Rangitoto Island in the distance.
Midway between the Victoria Avenue shops and Remuera Village shops, Waiata Avenue is a quiet & leafy no-exit street adorned with some of Remuera's finest residences. If you've never experienced this park-like pocket of the suburb, here's your chance.
