About this listing
A substantial permanent home, designed by David Brocherie with architectural flair, quality and durability are this property's hallmarks. Elevated in secluded Kowhai Grove, built to catch the sun, it has been the original owner's home since new, circa 1986. Concrete block (Garage etc. plywood for the balance) all with a plaster finish, aluminium joinery, colour steel roof all ensure lower maintenance. A formal lofty entrance brings you into the house, or you can access via the double garage (auto door) at this level also via the internal access. The stairs lead you to 2 double bedrooms, a bathroom, laundry, then to the dining room with a deck off. Adjacent is the well-planned kitchen - both rooms enjoy an enviable view of the harbour. The living area just up from here also with its own deck, a modern log fire, vaulted Rimu celling, quite special, through to the lounge with the same architecture, as well as enjoying inspiring views of the hills, plus an open fire. Finally, the main bedroom and ensuite is at the apex of the house with lovely harbour views from the balcony.
In recent times, new carpet, log fire, heat pump, paint inside, plaster outside, all ensure that the property is looking cared for and ready for the new owners to add their personal touches - its vacant and available, and will be sold - is this you? Call me
