Just fifteen minutes from Auckland's CBD but with the vibe of an exclusive holiday resort, this sunny and inviting family home with views over Little Shoal Bay gives you the best of the Shore and more.
Nestled down a tree-lined driveway, this lovingly crafted split level home blends effortlessly into its surroundings, offering privacy as well as the convenience of a prime location. Enter from the middle level, where you will find the large master suite with spacious walk in robe and en suite. With uninterrupted views and its own lounge-meets-office space, it is the perfect point from which to explore this cool modern residence.
Upstairs is the perfect kids' zone, with a light filled lounge big enough for a study nook as well, two double bedrooms plus a family bathroom. The lower level is where the fun happens, with an immaculately presented kitchen complete with butler's pantry to store the extras. A mix of style and practicality, it is perfectly positioned to entertain in the open plan dining and living area flowing onto the north west deck and flat grass area beyond. Sheltered from the southerly and westerly winds, and private, it has a lush, resort-style feel thanks to a clever mix of mature tropical and native planting that brings tui and wood-pigeons to sing and play in its surrounds.
The property features covered parking for two vehicles, as well as space for another two cars. A large workshop is under the house, and storage for all of the toys needed for biking around the surrounding streets or heading out onto the water.
With native timber flooring and a north-west aspect that means sun all day, this home gives you the best of central Auckland life with the Shore's beachside feel. Just down the hill you've got Little Shoal Bay for summer picnics, swimming and sailing. Continue on to Stafford Rd Wine Bar and Bridgeway Cinema or head towards Hinemoa St a quick walk up the road for great coffee, shops and restaurants. Easy motorway and ferry access makes travelling by bus, boat or car simple and stress-free.
Zoned for excellent Northcote Schools and with the new cycle-way allowing easy access toward the CBD, you really do have the best of both worlds.
