Genteel Modern Comfort

SOLD - This listing was sold in April 2019
Three double bedrooms, an enviable verandah on two sides to beat the sun, and graceful olde worlde charm dating back to the early 1900s, makes this lovely old dame one for the picking. The house has been extensively upgraded at some point to provide the modern conveniences comfort demands, as well as adding plenty of natural light and a sense of space. The bedrooms have all been insulated and re-gibbed, a heat-pump to keep Jack Frost at bay and ceiling and underfloor insulation have been installed. The lounge and bedrooms have all been laid with quality carpeting. In the bathroom a spacious walk-in shower features, along with touches of yesteryear in the antique style vanity and mirrored cabinet. A practical kitchen with gas hob, range-hood, and feature splash back offers plenty of bench and storage space. Original polished native timber floors extend into the separate dining area which accesses the verandah through French doors. Through the kitchen in the opposite direction is a satisfyingly practical separate laundry. Underneath the house on concrete floors, with power available to it, is the man-cave dream basement with a workshop and storage area. A double carport provides vehicular shelter and a solid fence has recently been constructed along the street-front to give good privacy to the home. This is an easy-care property and a most comfortable home within a five minute walk of Sunday morning cafes, newspapers, groceries, medical facilities and other amenities. The commute to Auckland outside of rush hour is less than half an hour, and similar to Silverdale. A country town in a genuinely community-oriented environment with access to the big city is not so easy to find with these days, and this genteel old lady is right in character. Put this one on your list - smell the fragrance of tranquility.
