About this listing
Dating back to the 1880's this charming cottage is steeped in history. Built by early settlers from Norway, the cottage remains one of three original dwellings in Greenhithe. Set on a large, private block the cottage is bathed in sunshine, bordered by native bush and serenaded by birdsong - there are no neighbours to be seen! The elevated site has views to Rangitoto, the Skytower and the upper reaches of Waitemata Harbour. This is a peaceful, unique lifestyle property within easy commuting distance to Albany, the North Shore and the city. Surprisingly spacious, the cottage offers 2 living areas and 3 bedrooms in addition to wonderful outdoor living options. There is clear potential for further development of the site and enhancement of the cottage whilst retaining the historic charm, so for anyone with an appreciation of our Kiwi heritage, this will be an absolute Greenhithe treasure.
