Serenely sequestered on a rear sited section within a coveted enclave in heartland Mission Bay, this superb brick and cedar family residence has been home to generations of the same family since built over 30 years ago. The section has ample room for children to run free and includes a sparkling in-ground pool and spa enclosure for endless leisure and lifestyle possibilities over the summer months.
The central floor of the three level 247 sqm (approx.) residence is the pivotal entertainment hub of the household with a north facing aspect delivering sunshine galore. An elegant and light-filled sitting room has an inviting window seat for a reading group rendezvous and shares its generous proportions with a formal dining space. Next door the large and hospitable family room is similarly furnished and is perfect for casual hangs with kids and friends. Both living rooms have doors connecting to tiered decking with steps to the gardens and pool area below. The original solid rimu kitchen with walk-in pantry has been maintained in apple pie order and basks in lots of natural light beneath vast garden bay glazing. Accommodation layout is heedful of those with expanded families as are the three fully tiled bathrooms and guest powder room. The top floor comprises three bedrooms including master bedroom sharing a balcony while the ground floor offers separate bedroom quarters with another walk-in closet, substantial bathroom adjacent and doors to the surrounding deck.
Double internal access garage has good storage as does the separate laundry. The landscaped grounds are lush in name and tropical by nature with lawns for the kids and their pets to gallop about on. In zone for nearby Kohimarama School and Selwyn College and a lazy 800m on foot to hit the sand for a stroll or grab a coffee at any of the many cafes dotting the foreshore.
