With its ivy-framed entrance and understated exterior, at first glance there's something delightfully innocent about this crisp 1950s bungalow. But don't be fooled, what we have here is a seriously sizeable family home with around 150m2 of floor area.
On offer are 3 double bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and 2 spacious living areas. The master suite with walk-in robe, gorgeous bathroom and spacious west-facing deck is seriously sized, while downstairs a cosy living room with its own separate entrance provides our owners with the option of a teenage rumpus, media space or a useful income stream via Air BnB. Expand this area and add in a bathroom (subject to Council consents) and you’ve got yourself a revenue-generating home and income.
Embracing a cool Scandinavian vibe, this theme works tastefully with the elevated position and bungalow features of the home. The polished tawa floors are naturally blonde, the glazing is double, the stud is gloriously high, the lighting has been recessed with modern LEDs and the high grade wall and ceiling insulation and the wide central hallway deliver all the right first impressions.
Step into the elevated and spacious open plan living area, and you will realise just how special this home is. The sleek kitchen is beautifully appointed with a marble splashback and an extensive benchtop, understated industrial pendant lights and excellent storage. The west-facing living area features a modern woodburner and flows to a large and sheltered west-facing deck – the perfect retreat for entertaining all year round and effectively another living area.
The supremely zen and sunny 943m2 section has been landscaped for exceptional privacy and offers the potential to add a pool in the just the right spot for sun or to subdivide. The current owners have done some groundwork in this space and are kindly making their investigations available to buyers. A garage, off street parking and extensive storage and workshop areas under the house tick the remaining boxes while the well sized separate laundry off the living area is simply fab.
Elevated, big-hearted, and in an exceptional position overlooking a reserve. This is the home you've been waiting for and with traffic lights at the top of the street, it’s just one easy turn onto the motorway, moments from the yacht club and local parks and a fast commute into the city centre.
Covil Avenue is one of the best streets in the area and we’re right at the most desirable end of it. Our owners are going smaller, so this is your chance to go larger.
