Brick & Tile Kiwi Character in Double Westlake zone

This well maintained & beautifully presented brick & tile classic character home has been in the same family since it was built in the early 1960's. With a large north facing front yard, this lovely home oozes street appeal & solid quality.

Come inside you'll notice an art deco feel with rounded wall corners, rimu trim, & cute built-in shelves for books & knick-knacks. The lounge has french doors opening to a small sunny deck to enjoy your morning coffee, a separate study with sliding door (currently set up as a bedroom) & there's even an open fireplace. Kitchen is very spacious (would easily house a small dining table) & it's modern with attractive light woodgrain cupboard units (plus a large pantry unit) & polished-concrete style engineered stone benchtops. Laundry is large enough to convert into an extra bathroom & it has so many cupboards: There's also a built-in, fold-out ironing board!

Bathroom has recently been renovated with a frameless glass shower, lovely floor tiles, large vanity with soft-close drawers, & gorgeous Englefield bath to relax after a hard day at work. There are three double bedrooms, two of which are large enough for extra seating or a study nook. Downstairs is an internal access garage & large workshop or hobbies area, plus there is a massive storage area which could maybe be developed as an extra living space.

In a very convenient Takapuna location, Smales Farm Bus Station is a short flat walk, motorway North or South is just minutes away, & you can walk to Takapuna Beach, shops, cafes, bars, & restaurants. Great school zoning: Westlake Boys, Westlake Girls, Takapuna Intermediate & Takapuna Primary. Carmel College, Rosmini & St Joseph's are all really close.

This is seriously for sale! CV $1.18M. What will you pay? Move in & enjoy as-is or there's plenty of opportunity to add value by adding fencing, extra bathroom, polishing the native hardwood timber floors & developing the basement. Buy this house on it's own - or if you are looking for an investment why not buy the house at the back as well with a total of 809m2 freehold land?
