FULLY-RENOVATED ART DECO LIVING
Art Deco-aficionados will recognise the special character and unique heritage of this centrally-located Meadowbank residence. Built from solid stucco, the standalone home offers much more space than typical two-bedroom floorplans (115m2 approx.) plus it offers buyers appealing future options, thanks to the enormous 54m2 Skyline garage at the rear.
The current family are just the second owners since it was built nearly 80 years ago, and were drawn to the classic design features and opportunity to procure a true Art Deco home, which are becoming increasingly rare. They've lovingly enhanced it with a full renovation, inside and out, perfectly balancing the signature style with contemporary features and finishes for easy living. Carpets were ripped up to reveal native Matai floorboards, which have been stained a deep chocolate shade, and these are complemented with tiles and soft grey carpets in other areas. A stylish colour palette on the walls provides a modern touch to the home and are accentuated by crisp white trim and feature light fittings throughout.
A security gate opens into the expansive north-facing front garden, which is fully-fenced so that kids and pets can play safely on the flat lawns. The paved patio area, which is framed by vibrant planting, enjoys great sun and is the ideal place to spend summer afternoons and evenings.
From the entry foyer, the large, sun-drenched lounge is warmed by the original wood fireplace and flows into a dedicated dining room which our owners say is a wonderfully intimate space for entertaining, particularly in the winter months when the fire is burning. The spaces flow effortlessly with one another and lead into the modern kitchen, which features stylish stone benchtops, imported brass handles and a contemporary tiled splashback.
Both bedrooms are generously proportioned, and the master, which overlooks the front garden, features a beautiful adjacent sunroom which is perfect as a home office or nursery. Rounding out the floorplan is a separate laundry space and a great sized bathroom complete with an oversized shower.
At the rear of the property sits plenty of off-street parking and the expansive stand-alone garage, which has enough space for two cars, as well as abundant storage space and room for a workshop. Astute purchasers will immediately recognise the extraordinary potential this space presents for the home to be extended and further developed as future needs dictate (subject to consent.) Bring your architect and investigate your options!
Along with the aesthetic enhancements, our owners have spent plenty of time and attention future-proofing the home, including rewiring, replumbing, painting the exterior and adding valuable storage space throughout. This attention to detail, coupled with the future garage development potential, offers the next owner excellent peace of mind and a truly beautiful property to call 'home.'
