Of Haven and Heritage
Property ID RMU24321In an area brimming with traditional character homes, elegantly sits this 1920s bungalow. So beautifully redesigned and reconfigured to offer the highest level of comfort and style for the family who wishes to live an urban lifestyle and retain a private haven in which to relax and share.
Excellent street appeal beckons you up the front porch stair and in to the generous proportions beyond. Glowing with the honey tinted warmth of native timber floors, the timelessly contemporary interior finishes are immediately comfortable and familiar but with a focus on stylish living. The lounge room holds a window seat, perfect for reading a book in the abundant sun. An almost gallery-like space contains the dining that leads to the superb kitchen with discreet storage and seamless finish - perfect for those who love to cook and to entertain. Under a louver roof, the outdoor terrace basks in the ambience of a fireplace in the evening and by day offers shady haven while the children and pets enjoy the flat and ample lawn area. Three generous bedrooms retain their 1920s proportions with soaring ceilings and casement windows. The master with private ensuite, and one of the rooms relishes in the access to the deck through traditional French doors. A garage and carport with electronic door round off the classical facade, undeniably chic, without ostentation. Close by to a range of amenities and very near to Symonds Street and the CBD, the home also enjoys the pleasure of being within the Auckland Grammar zone among other excellent schools. A testament to the enduring appeal of heritage style with a modern nature, this is a haven of home you should not delay in inspecting.
