  • Property Details

    Recently renovated from top to toe, this 1904 bay villa commands instant adoration from the street, and continues to impress once you enter. From the front door you're greeted with an oversized hallway adorned with original woodwork, lofty stud height and pressed-tin ceiling. This theme is carried throughout the home with character details lovingly preserved, from the original Matai timber flooring to the original French doors off the first bathroom. Lavishly proportioned, the floor area of approximately 324m² is spread over two levels. Also ample in size, the home's vast bedrooms are complemented by a range of living and entertaining options. You and your family will be spoilt for choice with four bedrooms, three living areas and three bathrooms. The size and scale of this home is further accentuated by the open plan dining/living area complete with entertainer's kitchen and scullery - a welcome modification to the standard villa layout. Simply open the floor-to-ceiling sliders to instantly double the floor space, seamlessly connecting the large north-facing deck with the indoors. Summer nights will be well spent here, making use of the private BBQ area and enjoy gourmet pizzas in the wood-fired oven. If you're looking to get away from it all, why not retreat to the separate lounge? It's a great place to curl up fireside with a good book while overlooking the harbour. The twinkling lights of the city can also be seen from the master bedroom, which includes a walk-in wardrobe and ensuite. Downstairs you'll find the fourth bedroom, another bathroom and yet another living area - perfect for teenagers. You could easily create a completely self-contained space down here, with gas plumbing and plenty of room for a kitchenette. This villa really is the best of both worlds, having been renovated to today's high standards while retaining its classic charm. Think insulation, full rewiring and soft-close drawers combined with vintage stained glass windows and ornate high ceilings. All this nestled in one of the North Shore's most beautiful neighbourhoods. Birkenhead Point offers quiet village living in close proximity to the city via motorway or relaxing ferry ride. Boutique shops, modern library, cafes and restaurants abound, with an ever-increasing range of options - if you do decide to leave the comfort of your own al fresco dining area. Harbour views, traditional charm and modern convenience - very rarely do homes of this style and spec become available. But with our vendors moving on, now's your chance to secure a home in this sought-after suburb.
