This private, warm four bedroom 1890s character home overlooking the Public Gardens is set on two titles over 2000 sqm of low-maintenance landscaped gardens, only minutes from the centre of town and across the road from the playground. This home has insulation in the ceiling, walls and some floors, and the exterior has been recently repainted.
The open-plan living area is light and spacious with 3m high ceilings, neutral decor and low-energy spotlights throughout. French doors open onto a deck and paved BBQ area. A lovely touch is the bay window with a built-in seat overlooking the Public Gardens. The modern kitchen is easy to work in, with great storage and the added benefit of a skylight. The living area is heated by a logburner and heatpump, with a ceiling fan and heat transfer system to evenly distribute heat. Original Rimu floorboards have been restored in the two spacious double bedrooms downstairs. The front bedroom features bifold windows that open onto a covered deck and gardens. Upstairs, the generous master bedroom features a step-in wardrobe, built-in shelving/bookcase with French doors opening onto a private deck. The single bedroom is currently used as an office. The upstairs landing has room for a reading nook or office/work space. The bathroom is modern, functional and spacious. Should you need car spaces and a man-cave or two, there is a large double garage with automatic door, inspection pit and electricity, a spacious shed/workshop also with electricity, a single carport, and plenty of off-street parking. Established gardens offer plenty of opportunities for the whole family whether it's relaxing in the hammock, coffee on the sun-drenched upper deck, lunch under the rose arbour, or harvesting veggies in the raised garden beds for a BBQ in the courtyard. The site is bordered on two sides with pastureland, and mature trees create extra privacy.
