Old Soul, New Chapter
This grand 1900's Frank Messenger designed villa has been tightly held for 40 years by its current owners, who are retired architects. Careful restoration and modernisation has been ongoing since purchase. There is soul and substance here, with every detail carefully considered and beautifully crafted. Windows, decorative lead-lights, verandas and polished Kauri floors retain the architectural integrity of the original property as it has been brought into the 21st century.
On entrance you are welcomed into an open-plan kitchen, dining and living area with seamless flow. Multiple sets of French doors provide direct access to extremely private outdoor spaces bounded by established gardens. The lower level also includes a separate formal living/dining space and entranceway, study area, bathroom, laundry, and storage room. Heating is provided by a wood burning fireplace, with a wetback and additional solar water heating on the roof.
On the second level you will find four generous bedrooms. Two guest bedrooms each have ensuites and direct access to the veranda deck - perfect for family members, visitors, or Airbnb guests. A master bedroom with walk-in robe, 4th bedroom, and separate upstairs bathroom can be closed off from the guest rooms if desired.
Outside, the property is fully-fenced, with plenty of off-street parking, multiple private entertaining areas, space and power supply for a spa pool, a large vegetable garden, woodshed, and a garage with attached workshop. This unique property is located at the doorstep of the inner city, meters from vibrant restaurants and cafes, and minutes from Pukekura Park and the famous Coastal Walkway. Zoned for Central School, Highlands Intermediate, and within the catchment for New Plymouth Boys' and Girls' High Schools. The opportunity to own a home of this nature in this location does not come along very often, sure to generate substantial interest.
