In recent years this classic 1950s bungalow has been subjected to a sympathetic extension creating a spacious brick and cedar family residence. Configured to handle modern family lifestyles, the freehold 860 sqm (approx.) property is zoned Mixed Housing Suburban presenting development potential. With unrestricted views across the Tamaki River to Musick Point the spatially generous open plan living areas serve four double bedrooms, and two and a half bathrooms. This property will appeal to growing families who may also consider exploiting the attractive zoning by developing the back section in a superb setting that feels like a year round holiday. The...

interior draws elements of elegant Long Island coastal luxury and blends these in with a subtle Kiwiana beach Bach vibe. Merging of the interior with the outdoors makes it easy for guests to ebb and flow onto the tiered decking to watch the kids play chasing on the flat fenced lawns fronting the water. Here is the perfect spot for chatting around the barbecue after a return from the fishing trip launched hours earlier from the nearby Panmure ramp. The striking designer kitchen pays homage to the marine theme with a galley-style layout and comprises high end appliances and cleverly harnesses tinted glazing for the views. Stylishly decorated double bedrooms include the master quarters on the cruise deck addition upstairs. This intimate crow's nest spot with lovely views from its own balcony has a stunning tiled ensuite and walk-in closet. At the rear of the property a mellowing barn style garage with annexe will also house the boat and with its clerestory windows makes it a useful art studio or home based business hideout with ample storage space for bikes, boards and bits. There's also parking for multiple cars for the much anticipated New Year's Eve party. Close to Waiotaiki Nature Reserve and handy also for shopping, schools and transport routes, this home wins big in combining on-trend style and enduring character.
