Cool character detail juxtaposed with an edgy designer vibe ensures this beautiful 4-bedroom 1930s period home by St Heliers Village is the essence of contemporary sophistication. On a full 822m² flat site behind electric gates, the private family haven has been sympathetically renovated by architect Evelyn McNamara. The kitchen and bathrooms were remodelled in a handsome style that suits the era. Large north-facing living/dining and entertaining spaces were extended and opened up through bifolds to a sheltered limestone terrace, overlooking the pool and a stunning, manicured landscaped and irrigated garden. Double glazing and central heating add luxurious warmth in winter and in summer the family enjoys dining outdoors beside the wood burning fireplace. Cooks will appreciate the practical kitchen featuring stunning granite benchtops, double stacked, easy glide Blum drawers and concealed pantries. Carefully curated interiors impress with Tom Dixon and Douglas & Bec lighting showcasing the heart rimu floors, elegant leadlights and distinctive 1930s windows. A guest wc in the laundry is handy for the downstairs guest room. There are 2 more bathrooms upstairs. The chic master bedroom suite gains a sweeping panorama from the cityscape across the harbour to Rangitoto Island. A wine cellar sits beside internal double garaging. As the next guardian of this exquisite architectural treasure, your children are in zone for St Heliers Primary, Glendowie College and St Ignatius. It is also on the private school bus route and you can stroll to the village. A classic groomed to perfection. Just unpack and enjoy the ease.
